The UFC returned to ESPN on Saturday night for UFC Vegas 22 at the UFC Apex.

In the main event, Derek Brunson was able to outwrestle Kevin Holland to a dominant unanimous decision victory to bring the Holland hype train to a screeching halt. Holland never seemed to focus during the fight and did not have an answer for Brunson’s overwhelming grappling.

Max Griffin, meanwhile, scored a devastating knockout of Song Kenan in the very first round.

Other big finishes came courtesy of Adrian Yanez, Tai Tuivasa, Montel Jackson, Bruno Silva, and a stunning last-second KO from Grant Dawson on the preliminary card.

The fighters who picked up $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses were Griffin, Yanez, Dawson, and Silva.
