UFC 163 Live Results, Play-by-Play and Fight Card Highlights

With Anthony Pettis out of commission, Chan-Sung Jung, aka the Korean Zombie, will get a crack at Jose Aldo for the UFC featherweight belt. In addition to the title fight, Lyoto Machida will try to hold on to his top contender spot against surging wrestler Phil Davis in a critical light heavyweight matchup. 

Past that, though, it's a straightforward card tailored for the audience, made up of middling Brazilian talent squaring off with...middling talent not from Brazil. There are still some interesting fights, however, including including Ian McCall vs. Iliarde Santos, Amanda Nunes vs. Sheila Gaff and Thales Leites vs. Tom Watson.

Make no mistake, though, it's all about that title fight on Saturday—one that is a very strong Fight of the Year candidate. Keep an eye out here for live results and reactions to the entire event, as well as the immediate aftermath!
