Fortunes changed for five at UFC Fight Nights 71, 72
(mmafighting.com)

(mmajunkie.com)
What a startling statistic it is that, since the turn of 2015, the number of European fighters to have won UFC titles over the course of its 22-year history has doubled.

It had been just shy of a decade since Andrei Arlovski had beaten Paul Buentello to unify the promotion’s heavyweight title all the way back at UFC 55...
