Entering UFC Stockholm, both Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Smith were on a quest to erase the memories of their recent losses to reigning light heavyweight champion Jon Jones

While both men put on an entertaining, and bloody, scrap for the Swedish fans, it was Smith who walked away with the ‘W’ as he forced Gustafsson to submit early in the fourth round. But while Smith celebrated in victory, the crowd in attendance was silenced as Gustafsson dropped his gloves in the Octagon and declared “the show is over.”

Check out the reaction to Smith’s victory and Gustafsson’s shocking retirment below, plus the best of the rest from an action-packed card inside the Ericsson Globe.
