UFC Fight Night 59 took place at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts and was headlined by the infamous Irishman Conor McGregor taking on 10th ranked featherweight Dennis Siver.
McGregor had no trouble once again, picking Siver apart on the feet and finishing the bout midway through the second round via TKO. Following his victory, McGregor went into the crowd to meet UFC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo.
In the co-main event, we saw third ranked UFC lightweight Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone take on former UFC and WEC lightweight champion Benson Henderson for a third time. In a closely-contested bout, Cerrone finally came out victorious over Henderson, earning a unanimous decision victory, a 15-day turnaround from his last fight.
