The fight card was an exciting one, kicking off with five submission finishes in a row on the undercard.

But the night was topped off when Eddie Alvarez became the first fighter to win a UFC championship after having been a Bellator champion.

Alvarez has been considered one of the top lightweights in the world for years, but he put a stamp on that on Thursday night by taking out Rafael dos Anjos less than four minutes into their fight.
