While Song Yadong swept the scorecards in the bantamweight main event against Chris Gutierrez, it was Khalil Rountree who stole the show at UFC Vegas 83 with his emphatic third-round finish of Anthony Smith. Rountree wowed in the co-main event and then called out new light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira.
