Watch Lyoto Machida Ryan Bader C.B. Dollaway in Just 61 Seconds (And More UFC Fight Night 58 Highlights)

Sick of watching the same NOS and Metro PCS commercials 4,000 times just to watch one or two good fights on a Fox Sports 1 card?

Well, CagePotato has you covered with a recap and highlights of the two fights that mattered most at UFC Fight Night 58: Lyoto Machida vs. C.B. Dollaway and Renan Barao vs. Mitch Gagnon.

Machida ran through Dollaway like Grant took Richmond. Seriously, the fight was reminiscent of Machida’s 2012 performance against Ryan Bader but even more devastating and one-sided. After being hit with a body kick from Machida, Dollaway recoiled back to the cage and turtled. Machida followed up with vicious strikes. Dollaway crumpled to the mat. The fight was over before it started.

See Renan Barao choke out Mitch Gagnon and Erick Silva slice through Mike Rhodes after the jump.

UFC Fight Night 58 Results: Lyoto Machida Wrecks CB Dollaway With a Body Kick in Round 1, Barao Submits Gagnon

UFC Fight Night 58 is the last UFC event of year, but it’s not exactly a “YEAR-END EVENT!” worth getting excited about. It’s more like that last bit of food of your plate after a long, arduous dinner, and you have no real interest in cramming it down your throat — in fact, the very thought of doing that makes you want to barf — but come on, you’re not really going to leave one bite on your plate, are you? Who does that? It’s just one bite! Eat it!

Anyway, tonight’s card comes to us live from the Jose Correa Arena in Barueri, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and features Lyoto Machida vs. CB Dollaway, Renan Barao vs. Mitch Gagnon, Shoe Face vs. Brawlin’ Barista, and Erick Silva vs. Uncredited Non-Wiki Victim #3. Papa Goldstein will be plugging in all the UFC Fight Night 58 results after the jump, and we might even liveblog the fights we’ve mentioned above, if we feel like it. Follow us after the jump, refresh the page periodically for the latest updates, and follow us on twitter for even more commentary.

Urijah Faber vs. Francisco Rivera, Renan Barao vs. Mitch Gagnon Booked for December UFC Cards

Two of the biggest names in the UFC’s bantamweight division will be back in action this December. First up, Urijah Faber — who still hasn’t lost a non-title fight, ever — will compete at UFC 181: Hendricks vs. Lawler II (December 6th, Las Vegas) against Francisco Rivera. UFC officials confirmed the matchup last night.

Faber is coming off his submission victory over Alex Caceres at UFC 175 in July, while Rivera most recently lost a decision to Takeya Mizugaki at UFC 173, snapping a two-fight win streak. I’m not exactly sure how this booking makes sense, but the opportunity to watch Faber strangle somebody just outside the top ten is the kind of gift that you don’t question.

In other booking news, former 135-pound champ Renan Barao goes back to being a regular-joe contender, when he fights Mitch Gagnon at UFC Fight Night 58: Machida vs. Dollaway (December 20th; Barueri, Brazil); the booking was also confirmed last night.

Barao was supposed to rematch TJ Dillashaw at UFC 177, but then passed out during his weight cut, and was pulled from the event and publicly shamed. Barao will have a chance to redeem himself against Gagnon, a Canadian up-and-comer who has won his last four (although against a relatively low level of competition).

So: Easy wins for the big names, or do you smell an upset cookin’?

UFC Booking Alert: Alistair Overeem vs. Stefan Struve, Lyoto Machida vs. CB Dollaway Added to December Cards

With three knockout losses in his last four fights, Alistair Overeem has become almost the biggest bust in UFC history. But he’ll get at least one more chance to salvage his career later this year, when he faces fellow Dutch heavyweight Stefan Struve at UFC on FOX 13 (December 13th, Phoenix). UFC officials confirmed the booking yesterday.

Overeem was most recently spotted enjoying a private performance of Ben Rothwell’s celebratory jig, earlier this month at UFC Fight Night 50. Struve hasn’t competed since his jaw-breakin’ TKO loss to Mark Hunt back in March 2013. Since then, “Skyscraper” has been sidelined due to a heart condition. Struve was slated to face Matt Mitrione at UFC 175 in July, but fainted backstage before his fight and was not allowed to compete.

UFC on FOX 13 will also feature a win-or-get-fired lightweight bout between Jamie Varner and Drew Dober, and will “more than likely” host a heavyweight match between ex-champion Junior Dos Santos and highly regarded contender Stipe Miocic; we’ll let you know when that one is finalized.

UPDATE: And it’s finalized. Dos Santos vs. Miocic has been confirmed as the main event of UFC on FOX 13.
