• Demian Maia (15-3) defeats Jorge Santiago (23-10) via UD (30-27 x 3)
Santiago is now 1-4 in his UFC career. Demian Maia further proved that Santiago does not belong amongst the top 10 Middleweights in the world.
• Anthony Pettis (pictured) (14-2) defeats Jeremey Stephens (20-7) via SD (29-28 x 2, 28-29)
Anthony "Showtime" Pettis got right back on track this evening with a razor thin split decision victory over the very dangerous "Lil Heathen" Stephens. After being given a wrestling clinic Carpenter style for his UFC debut, a win over Stephens puts Pettis right back in the middle of the logjam that is the UFC 155 lb. division.
