The event that certainly lived up to the hype, UFC 189 was that and more.

It was all capped off with the main event as Connor McGregor backed up his smack talk with a courageous win over Chad Mendes.

UFC has been growing and growing and with UFC 189 unfolding as it did, the sport and the UFC specifically just escalated to a new level.

Dana White better open up that check book and ship a big amount of money over to Connor McGregor for delivering the performance he did.

Also on the night, Robbie Lawler, Jeremy Stephens, Gunnar Nelson & Thomas Almeida all were winner on the main card.

On the under card, Matt Brown, Alex Garcia , John Howard, Cody Garbrandt, Louis Smolka and Cody Pfister were all winners.
