UFC Fight Night 63 took place on Saturday, April 4th at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia.
In the main event we saw first ranked featherweight Chad Mendes make quick work of fourth ranked Ricardo Lamas, finishing “The Bully” via TKO in the very first round. The biggest news, however, came from the co-main event as Al Iaquinta defeated Jorge Masvidal via a controversial split decision and would go on to curse the booing crowd.
