UFC Fight Night 173 may well go down in the history books, but it will be for all the wrong reasons.

Tasked with a clash against veteran middleweight Derek Brunson, Edmen Shahbazyan’s solid start was quickly washed away by Brunson’s wrestling as a flurry of heavy ground and pound at the end of the second round could well have seen the bout ended then and there.
