Live, from a Brazilian city you’ve never heard of, comes UFC Fight Night 56: Shogun vs. St. Preux! Featuring: Mauricio Rua fighting a late replacement, Ian McCall not fighting that guy who rarely makes weight on the first try, the return of Mr. Handsome, and the non-wiki all stars.

Note: Due to the McCall-Lineker cancellation, our man Alex Giardini will be providing a play-by-play for only the main event, and filling in results and GIF-links for everything else, saving you from the hassle of watching a likely garbage-ass South American card that’s sure to go past your bedtime. We’re taking the bullet for this one, because we love you so much.

The FOX Sports 1 main card kicks off at 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. PT, so follow us after the jump, refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest results, and toss in your own thoughts in the comments section or on twitter @cagepotatomma. Thanks for coming.

Mauricio Rua vs. Ovince St-Preux

Round one: Shogun out orthodox, OSP southpaw. Kick to the body from OSP. They exchange inside leg kicks. Shogun slips while trying to throw an overhead bomb, and OSP pounces on him with a huge left hook. Shogun looks out, and OSP starts to pound away with right bombs while Rua is on his backside, against the cage. It’s already over. Wow, what a finish. Replay shows it wasn’t a slip, but OSP lacing Shogun with a left. My goodness.
