The last UFC event of the year didn’t disappoint as UFC 124 was a great night of fights. The main card had three exciting first round finishes, all coming out of nowhere and two dominate unanimous decisions.
The rivalry between TUF 12 coaches Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck ended tonight as GSP completely dominated in the main event. The first jab by GSP landed on the right eye of Koscheck and shortly after that the eye was swelling up. Koscheck showed a ton of heart but the game plan of GSP and the swollen eye was just too much to overcome.
