The UFC's 125-pound division didn't see a championship fight as scheduled on Saturday night at UFC 215, but the division did get a little bit of clarity near the top of it.

Henry Cejudo looked better than ever, dominating Wilson Reis on his way to a second-round finish. Cejudo used drastically improved boxing and crisp kicks to pick apart Reis for the duration of the fight. Cejudo noted that he trained with the Pitbull Friere brothers for the fight.
