Gegard Mousasi:

Gegard Mousasi was set to take on MMA legend Dan Henderson at UFC on FOX 14. Mousasi was looking to bounce back from a loss to ‘Jacare’ Souza and get right back in the mix of possible title contenders for later this year. Although the favorite coming into the fight, many were probably surprised in the way that the fight would go down. Mousasi caught ‘Hendo’ early and was able to pick up the TKO victory at 1:10 of Round 1. It was the fastest anyone has beaten Dan Henderson and it was certainly a statement made by the Dutchman.

Andy Ogle:

Andy Ogle entered UFC on FOX 14 in a must win situation as he was riding a 3-fight losing streak. Ogle was set to take on promotional newcomer Makwan Amirkhani. ‘The Ultimate Fighter 15’ alum had a newfound confidence coming into this fight due to joining Urijah Faber’s world-renowned MMA gym Team Alpha Male. Unfortunately, Ogle was never able to display anything he may have gotten better at because the fight lasted all of 8-seconds. ‘The Little Axe’ was hit with a flying knee right from the start and was finished seconds later. Although Joe Rogan expressed his displeasure in the stoppage, it was the right decision and the ref saved Ogle from taking any more unnecessary damage. Now with a 1-5 record in the UFC, it is very likely that was Ogle’s last fight in the octagon at least for the time being.
