Everyone and their dog predicted that tonight’s UFC 224 bout between John Lineker and Brian Kelleher would provide fireworks, and that proved to be the case.

Both bantamweights came out firing heavy punches, but after Kelleher ate a couple, he began looking for a takedown. Linker, however, was able to keep the fight standing, and the slugfest continued.

In round three, the fighters continued to exchange heavy, heavy punches, but eventually, Lineker floored Kelleher with a booming left, and that was that.
