In the UFC's return to Stockholm, Sweden, and Invicta's fifth event of its existence, there was much to love and plenty to hate. As far as the UFC is concerned, losing their main event wasn't fortuitous. Their hectoring of fans who felt the card wasn't worth their time is also regrettable. Yet, plenty of fighters put on sensational performances, an Irish featherweight made an incredible UFC debut and the Swedish crowd showed up in support.
Invicta had a banner event as well. Known fighters returned with sensational performances, a new champion was crowned and a controversial figure returned to dominance.
It's time to separate the good from the bad, the winners from the losers and the signal from the noise...
