him - The ref having none of that brings him down and Bennett was all business from there - He comes in

throwing punches and tags Smith and the ref steps in and pulls Bennett off as Smith was out of it - After the

fight, Bennett jumps on top of the cage and does a back flip to the center of the ring

took Camacho down and landed a couple of elbows to the face of Camacho as the bell rang - Camacho

looked a little dazed

of the round - they are discussing what happened with Garcia right now - Goes to a decision
