It was loud. It was edgy. It was controversial. And that's about what to expect when the UFC brings its octagon to town.
A crowd of 6,240 contributed to a gate of $501.035 and the people seemed to enjoy the evening.
In the main event, John Lineker's relentless attack kept him after John Dodson, who stayed unmarked through five rounds with a pretty stick-and-move defense, to win in a hard-earned split decision over Dodson in a batttle of bantamweights. If you looked at the men's face afterward you would have sworn the result would turn out the other way.

In the semi-main, Alex Oliveira scored a major upset by stopping Will Brooks. And after the win, Oliveria, who had angered Wilson by missing weight Friday, raised the temperature in the building by flashing a crotch shot at Brooks and then another rather questionable gesture. The crowd rained boos on Oliveira, who donned his cowboy hat and celebrated with fans and friends outside the ring. Brooks, who flung his mouthpiece at Oliveira, appeared to suffer some sort of absominal injury.
“It means a lot to me to get that win after everything that happened yesterday," Oliveira said. "I was very upset because I have never missed weight before and he talked a lot of s---, so the best thing that I have in my life is that I won tonight. Next, I will do whatever the UFC wants. If the fight is in Brazil, it will be at lightweight. The travel is what messed my weight up this week.”

Louis Smolka was also upset in a flyweight bout, being submitted by Brandon Moreno.
"In the fight, I felt stronger than Smolka," Moreno said. "I traded punches with him and Smolka wasn’t as strong as I thought he was going to be. Right now I feel strong, I feel great, I want to go eat pizza right now. After my fight on The Ultimate Fighter, I don’t know, I feel like a different fighter now. Be careful flyweight division, because Brandon Moreno is here. I want to fight with Demetrious (Johnson), but I don’t think I will get that fight, so I don’t know what is next.”
The crowd was heavily into cheering for veteran Nate Marquardt, who scored a knockout win over Tamdan McCrory in a middleweight matchup. Marquardt, 37, was fighting for the 56th time as a pro.
"It was very important for me to get the win in this fight," Marquardt said. "I lost my last fight and I knew where I was at technically and that I was still going up with my skillset. My last fight, I wouldn’t say it planted a seed of doubt, but I knew I was better than that and it made me wonder. I’m very happy, this was an important fight for me.”
