Lina Lansberg was the first woman in five fights to take Cristiane Justino past the first round. Unfortunately for Lansberg, moral victories don’t appear on your professional record.

The 140-pound catchweight bout was the main event of today’s UFC Fight Night 95 event at Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in the Brazilian capital of Brasilia. It aired on FS1 following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Justino (17-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) dominated Lansberg (6-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) from the opening bell. Lansberg never got her offense going and resorted to smothering Justino in the clinch. However, Justino had no issue operating in close, using knees to the body and takedowns to pile on the punishment.

With Lansberg covering up on the ground and “Cyborg” dropping heavy punches, the referee ended the bout at the 2:29 mark of Round 2.

Check out video highlights of the fight above.

UFC Fight Night 95 went down last night (Sat., Sept. 24, 2016) inside Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil, and now it’s time to see who went home with the largest slice of the Reebok sponsorship pie.

For complete UFC Fight Night 95: “Cyborg vs. Lansberg” results and play-by-play, click here.

Roy Nelson was the biggest earner of the night, as he walked away with a $15,000 sponsorship check from the sports apparel giant for his second-round knockout win over Antonio Silva (see it again here). As for “Bigfoot,” he earned $10,000 check from Reebok.

Even headliners Cris Cyborg and Lina Lansberg managed to walk away with a whopping $2,500 a piece. Take a look at the rest of the Reebok payouts courtesy of MMA Junkie:

Cristiane Justino: $2,500 def. Lina Lansberg: $2,500
Renan Barao: $10,000 def. Phillipe Nover: $5,000
Roy Nelson: $15,000 def. Antonio Silva: $10,000
Francisco Trinaldo: $10,000 def. Paul Felder: $5,000
Eric Spicely: $2,500 def. Thiago “Marreta” Santos: $5,000
Godofredo Pepey: $5,000 def. Mike De La Torre: $5,000
Michel Prazeres: $5,000 def. Gilbert Burns: $5,000
Rani Yahya: $10,000 def. Michinori Tanaka: $2,500
Jussier Formiga: $5,000 def. Dustin Ortiz: $5,000
Erick Silva: $10,000 def. Luan Chagas: $2,500
Alan Patrick: $2,500 def. Stevie Ray: $2,500
Vicente Luque: $2,500 def. Hector Urbina: $2,500
Gregor Gillespie: $2,500 def. Glaico Franca: $2,500

Total: $137,500

So, how are payouts determined?

According to the revamped payout structure (see it), the more fights you have combined with UFC and the now-defunct World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) and Strikeforce promotions, the more coin you have for your combat sports piggy bank.

And the less fights you have under the ZUFFA banner… well, the less you get. If you have a problem with the structure, take it up with UFC, not Reebok.

According to the report, fighters will also receive royalty and payments up to 20-30 percent of any UFC-related merchandise sold that bears his or her likeness. That’s a great way for the Internet “morons” to help the cause.

Now that UFC Fight Night 95 is in the books — full results here — Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is all set to stage its next pay-per-view (PPV) event.

And it’s going to be a good one!

UFC 204 is scheduled to go down inside Manchester Arena in Manchester, England on Oct. 8, 2016 as Middleweight champion Michael Bisping gears up for his first-ever title defense against Dan Henderson.

It’s a rematch years in the making after “Hendo” viciously knocked out “The Count” at UFC 100 almost a decade ago thanks to his infamous “H-Bomb.” For Bisping, it’s his chance to finally get some some revenge on his longtime rival and erase the memory of a knockout that is still being played on highlight reels today.

Also, Jimi Manuwa and Ovince Saint Preux throw down in a pivotal Light Heavyweight affair, while Stefan Struve faces Daniel Omielańczuk in a heavyweight brawl.

It will be interesting to see how this one unfolds. 

UFC heavyweight Roy Nelson, after winning his bout with Antonio Silva on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 95, grew frustrated with referee “Big” John McCarthy for what Nelson believed was a late stoppage following his right-hand shot on Silva.

One of the ways he chose to express that frustration was to push-kick McCarthy in the backside from behind after the fight concluded.

Contact with referees is strictly verboten in more or less every sport, MMA included. In fact, in 2014 a ref shove earned lightweight Jason High his UFC release. 

Nelson explained afterward that he hadn’t wanted to hurt Silva—the two are friends away from the cage—any more than was necessary.

“It was a push,” Nelson said of the move at the post-fight press conference (h/t Shaun Al-Shatti of MMA Fighting). “It was more of like, ‘dude, come on.’ Then we had a conversation in the cage. I was like, ‘Dude, he was knocked out.’ And [McCarthy] was like, ‘No, he wasn’t.’ And I’m like, dude, I know what a knockout is. I knock people out. That’s what I do for a living.”

A little farther removed from the heat of battle, Nelson apologized for his actions, but added that he didn’t regret making the move. 

“I apologize to Big John, but I wouldn’t take it back,” Nelson said at the presser. “It just hurt me, that I’ve got to keep on hitting a guy that doesn’t need to be hit.”

According to the MMA Fighting report, UFC officials indicated they would not take any disciplinary action against Nelson. It is uncertain what, if any, action will be taken by the Brazilian athletic commission that sanctioned the event, which took place in the federal capital of Brasilia.

Back in 2014, UFC president Dana White said of the High situation (via Sophia Helwani) that “if you touch the referee, [you are] done. …You don’t put your hands on the referee. Ever.”

Although the touch in question following the Nelson fight was a foot, not a hand, it’s probably reasonable to presume White was speaking figuratively, and that contacting a referee with a foot is similar to touching a referee with a hand.

Only, apparently, it isn’t. 

There was no immediate explanation from the UFC on why it viewed the Nelson incident differently from the High incident.

BRASILIA, Brazil – Eric Spicely, Vicente Luque, Erick Silva and Luan Chagas each earned $50,000 fight-night bonuses at Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 95 event.

Spicely and Luque picked up “Performance of the Night” awards, and Silva and Chagas took home “Fight of the Night” honors.The winners were announced on the FS1 post-fight show.

Spicely (9-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) pulled off a massive upset by submitting Thiago “Marreta” Santos (13-5 MMA, 5-4 UFC) in the first round of their middleweight fight. Santos was an 8-1 favorite in the fight, but Spicely caught him with a rear-naked choke and forced the Brazilian to tap in front of his home fans.

Luque (10-5-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) slugged it out with Hector Urbina (17-10-1 MMA, 1-2 UFC) right away in their welterweight bout on the UFC Fight Pass-streamed prelims. But less than a minute into the fight, he started landing in vicious combinations, and one final right hand crumpled Urbina to the canvas for a knockout right at the 60-second mark.

Silva (19-7 MMA, 7-6 UFC) had a handful of struggles against Chagas (14-2-1 MMA, 0-1-1 UFC) in their welterweight fight to open the FS1 prelims. Chagas put the veteran Brazilian on his backside a couple times. But Silva seemed to be the fresher fighter in the third, and it showed. When Chagas wound up on his butt late in the third, Silva stepped over the top of his head, dropped to the canvas himself and locked in a quick and slick rear-naked choke that had Chagas tapping almost immediately.

UFC Fight Night 95 took place at Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in the Brazilian capital of Brasilia. The card aired on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Not only does Michael Bisping want to get sweet revenge on Dan Henderson, he wants to do it in impressive fashion when the two collide for a second time in the main event of UFC 204 on Oct. 8, 2016 from inside Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

Speaking to Independent, “The Count” says he plans on using his speed advantage, stick to the basics and eventually clip “Hendo” with a perfectly-timed punch to put him to sleep in round number three.

He breaks it down:

“With Dan Henderson, everybody knows you don’t even need to do research to know that it’s his right hand. Dan Henderson has a heavy left and right hand. I, of course, found out at UFC 100. And I’ve got to watch that right hand. It’s simple as that. I respect Dan Henderson. I’ve got the speed advantage. Saying that, I had the speed advantage last time but he caught me. So I’ve got to be careful and stick to the basics. If I do the basics well, I win the fight. Keep my chin tucked in, keep my guard high and deliver fast powerful shots. I think as the fight progresses; I will wear him down then I will look for the finish in round three.”

Henderson initially defeated “The Count” back at UFC 100, taking him out via devastating knockout. It’s a defeat that has haunted Bisping throughout his career.

Both men’s careers have taken different paths since then, but Bisping can find solace in the fact that he has since become the Middleweight champion, the one belt that has eluded Henderson throughout his career.

This will be his final chance to earn it, as “Hendo” has proclaimed he will retire after his rematch with the British brawler, win, lose or draw.
