The Ultimate Fighting Championship fought valiantly against Bellator MMA on Saturday, only to fall flat in its main event. This 10-fight showing brought a little of everything, with sneaky chokes, thrilling comebacks and wily veterans. UFC Fight Night 195 featured not one but two future Hall of Famers showing real signs of life, a lightning-quick turnaround that did not pan out and the widest-ever gap in UFC experience.

It Happened, and We Let It Happen: After 25 minutes, Norma Dumont won a decision over Aspen Ladd. The Brazilian fighter has earned all three of her UFC victories on the scorecards, and has not finished a fight since tapping Erica Leidianny Ribeiro in 2017.

Arloveski: Taking a unanimous verdict over Carlos Felipe, Andrei Arlovski extended his lead as the winningest (21) and most active (26 fights) heavyweight in organizational history. His 15 minutes of combat also further boosted his record for the most fight time as a heavyweight, competing for nearly five hours and 40 minutes inside the Octagon.

Grizzled Veteran Savvy: Only three fighters in UFC history have more wins than Arlovski and his 21. One of those three is the man that prevailed before him: Jim Miller.

Clear-Cut, Like His Beard: Following to his firefight with Travis Browne in May 2015, every single one of Arlovski’s eight victories have come by unanimous decision. Before this stretch, “The Pit Bull” had never won more than two fights in a row on the scorecards.

Old Lion Feasting on the Young: Arlovski first competed under the UFC banner when he tapped out Aaron Brink at UFC 28 in November 2000. His opponent Felipe, the youngest fighter on the card, was five years old at the time.

You Don’t Mess Around with Jim: Miller lamped Erick Gonzalez early into the second round to end a two-fight skid. The knockout was his first since 2016 when putting Takanori Gomi away, and that time, Gonzalez was a year and a half into his professional career.

Run It Back: The victory for Miller is his 22nd on the UFC roster, tying Demian Maia for the second-most all-time. Only Donald Cerrone (23) stands above him.

Still Learning New Tricks: Now a 38-fight UFC veteran, Miller set the new record for the most bouts in UFC history. He and Cerrone have tied multiple times as they pass one another on the leaderboard.

Welcome to the Big Leagues, Kid: The gap in Octagon experience between Miller’s 37 previous UFC fights and Gonzalez’ zero is now the widest in company history. The past record was held by Miller, when he had 34 more UFC fights than Joe Solecki in April.

No Lightweights Compare: As a lightweight, Miller has officially competed in the UFC 36 times, or 13 more bouts than the next active 155-pounder, Clay Guida. His win total of 20 also is the top of the lightweight record books, while his 13 stoppage wins in the weight class tie Joe Lauzon for the most in divisional history.

Breaking the French Connection: It took three full rounds for Manon Fiorot to defeat Mayra Bueno Silva, getting the nod on all three cards. The triumph lifts her win streak to eight in a row, while putting to an end a five-fight knockout streak.

Snakes on a Train: For the first time in his career, Nate Landwehr secured a submission when he hit an anaconda choke on Ludovit Klein in the third round. All but two finishes for “The Train” have come after the first round.

Can’t You See I’m Goin’ Blindado: Down on one judge’s scorecards and tied for the other two, Bruno Silva staged a comeback to knock Andrew Sanchez out after the midpoint of Round 3. As a pro, “Blindado” now celebrates an 86% knockout rate, putting foes away with strikes in his last six outings.

Props for Noting the “Modern” Difference: Simply by stepping into the cage on Saturday, Lupita Godinez set the record for the quickest turnaround between two UFC bouts in modern history. That previous record stood with Khamzat Chimaev, who only needed 10 days between his finishes of John Phillips and Rhys McKee in 2020. Godinez fell short to Luana Carolina by decision.

Not So Quiet Storm: In 121 seconds, Danaa Batgerel crushed the returning Brandon Davis with a knee, elbows and punches to record the finish. The Mongolian nicknamed “Storm” has recorded first-round knockouts in his last three trips to the cage, and advances his finish rate of 80%.

Muscles on Muscles on Muscles: Ariane Carnelossi throttled Istela Nunes with a rear-naked choke nearly three minutes into the third round. “Sorriso” has finished her opponent in 79% of her wins, while earning her second win by tapout.

Never Say Never Again: Coming into UFC Fight Night 195, neither Dumont (seven fights) nor Ladd (10 fights) had ever competed beyond the third round, Gonzalez (19 fights) and Davis (22 fights) had never been knocked out and Klein had never dropped consecutive bouts (20 fights).

Taking Credit: For the first time in his storied UFC career, Miller walked out to Iron Man” by Black Sabbath. Prevailing over Gonzalez, Miller was recently bestowed the fictional “Iron Man Award” by the Sherdog Stat of the Week team.

Rising from the Depths: Before submitting Klein, Landwehr used the popular walkout tune of “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC. His victory lifted the track’s lowly winning percentage to 40%, elevating it above the likes of “Back in Black” and tying it with “TNT.” AC/DC historically is connected to a low win percentage of just over 40% for UFC fighters.
