The beginning of a three event week, UFC Fight Night 27 rocked our Wednesday night hard with wildly entertaining matches all around. Ultimate Fighter winners, tons of welterweights and two top ranked lightweights were all on display inside the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana.
In a night headlined by a welterweight showdown, fellow welterweight Brandon Thatch made the biggest splash of the night. Making his Octagon debut and riding an eight fight winning streak, Brandon Thatch made short work of his opponent Justin Edwards on the preliminary portion of the UFC Fight Night 27 fight card.
