UFC Fight Night 85 was not the most hyped show the UFC has seen in the month of March, to say the least. A week after a rare UFC break, and two after UFC 196, UFN 85 still managed to deliver in big ways on Fox Sports 1 Saturday night.
Referee Steve Perceval almost caused brain damage in the night's co-main event. Hector Lombard started strong on Neil Magny, before gassing out. Magny took advantage and flattened Lombard out, landing dozens of unanswered strikes. Perceval didn't stop the fight, instead letting Lombard take damage. Lombard barely lasted into the third round before being stopped via TKO.
38-year old Australian Daniel Kelly was getting dominated for the first two rounds by Amtonio Carlos Junior, who was 12 years younger than Kelly. In a fantastic moment, Kelly mounted an insane comeback with his back against the wall in round 3 on his way to an upset TKO victory. The Australia crowd went crazy for their victorious countryman.
