Round 1: Big John McCarthy is the referee for this main event. Crowd loved Vitor Belfort's walkout. Gastelum takes middle. Belfort looking very different with no mohawk. It's Gastelum moving forward, and Belfort backing up. Belfort with a kick to the body. And another one. Big shots from Belfort and he narrowly misses on left hand. That had KO written all over it. Now Belfort lands a left hand counter as Gastelum tries to get something going with a combo. Flying knee attempt from Belfort, and Gastelum lands a nice punch right to Belfort's nose. That hurt. Gastelum is a rock in there, not too bothered by the crowd, or Vitor's legend, or anything. Gastelum takes a huge punch, and now he gets clocked with a massive shot that drops him! Gastelum swarms and is throwing shots, Vitor hanging on. And now Gastelum leans in and drops on him. Belfort survived that somehow! Now he's back on his feet, and he fires back and lands a big left hand on Gastelum, which rocks the younger fighter. This is crazy. And now Gastelum again lands a huge right hand! That drops Belfort again, and as he goes into his follow-ups, McCarthy moves in to call it off. Fight's over. Gastelum with a huge KO of Belfort.
