Ronaldo Souza def. Chris Weidman at UFC 230
Ronaldo Souza (26-6 MMA, 9-3 UFC) got his nose smashed and his head thoroughly thumped by former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman (14-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) – and that was just the first round.
After that, Souza had to dig deep to climb back into the fight, which is exactly what he did in the succeeding rounds. He finally dropped Weidman with a huge punch just over the midway point of the final round to help stake his claim at a future title shot at 185 pounds.
