UFC on FOX 30 took place on July 28th from The Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Main Event featured a rematch between Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier after their first bout had a controversial ending that resulted in a no-contest. The two fighters exchanged blows throughout with neither gaining an edge till round two where on the ground, Alvarez was warned for landing a 12 to 6 elbow. The elbow seemed to energize Poirier who then poured it on landing many hard shots till the ref had not choice but to stop it. In women's action, Nina Ansaroff continued her hot streak taking a close decision from Randa Markos. Both ladies had their moments in the bout with each taking a round. Round three Ansaroff was a bit more aggressive and it made the difference. Also Katlyn Chookagian took a decision from Alexis Davis. Chookagian was the more effective striker, landing punches and circling out of danger before Davis could land much in return. Davis for her part landed some nice leg kicks and was able to take what Chookagian gave her, but the judges rewarded Chookagian. In the final women's bout, Joanna Jedrzejczyk got back on track taking a decision from Tecia Torres. Torres made it clear she wanted it on the ground and was able to force clinches and get it to the cage, but Jedrzejczyk was able to thwart the takedowns and land knees well in the clinch. Torres tried to make a push for it in round three but it was too little too late. Here are all your results and our Of The Night Awards.
