With the BMF title on the line in a five round bout, defending champion Justin Gaethje went to war with Max Holloway at the largest event in UFC history. At the end of the first round, Holloway would land a spin kick that broke Gaethje's nose early on, and would control the fight apart from suffering the first knockdown of his UFC career in the fourth round.
