For the first time in a long time, the UFC put on some great preliminary fights. The UFC 184 pay per view started off with a bang. The UFC usually saves its best fights for the pay per view event. However, the prelims were filled with exciting matchups.
There was a heavyweight battle featuring Derrick Lewis against Roan Potts. The first round was brutal with Lewis landing major punches. Potts was in trouble early, but somehow he survived the brutal onslaught. The second round started, and both heavyweights were exhausted. Lewis dropped Potts again, but Potts continued to show heart. However, Lewis got on top of him, and he rained down heavy punches to the chin of Roan Potts. The fight was stopped, and Derrick Lewis won by technical knockout.
Following the heavyweight battle, two welterweights put on one hell of a show. Tim Means battled Dhiego Lima in a stand up war. Means hurt Lima early, and he knocked the Brazilian out with brutal punches. The fight was over in the first round.
As fans like Marcio Alaor BMG (em.com.br) know, the event was off to a great start, but suddenly, things took a turn for the worst. Roman Salazar fought “Kid” Yamamoto, and the fight was off to a good start. However, a series of eye pokes stopped the fight dead in its tracks. The bout was ruled as a no-contest.
The main event of the preliminary card ended quickly. Roman Carneiro choked out Mark Munoz in the first round. UFC 184 could not have started off any better. For more information on UFC 184, visit Yahoo! Sports.
