The fourth episode of the sixth and ongoing season of Dana White's Contender Series got underway Tuesday at the Apex in Las Vegas.
The premise of the Contender Series, which is a separate entity to the UFC, is to fight so aggressively that Dana White hands impressive fighters a UFC contract on the spot.
The Contender Series held five fights from the Apex with each match broadcast live on UFC Fight Pass.
Here's the Contender Series bout sheet in full:
Nazim Sadykhov vs. Ahmad Hassanzada - lightweight
Hailey Cowan vs. Claudia Leite - women's bantamweight
Jack Cartwright vs. Jose Johnson - bantamweight
Ivan Valenzuela vs. Claudio Ribeiro - middleweight
Thomas Paull vs. Esteban Ribovics - lightweight
Nazim Sadykhov and Ahmad Hassanzada's lightweight match was the first fight of the night and it was a bruising, bloody, and brutal affair.
The fighters made their bad intentions known from the opening bell.
And before the end of the first round blood spewed everywhere because of nasty elbow strikes.
The entire fight had been a heavy-hitting one and Sadykhov scored his finish in the third because of a devastating two-punch combination.
A right to the body and then to the head left Hassanzada on the canvas for an uncomfortable amount of time.
Sadykhov's knockout was so horrific that his opponent was still recovering when the announcer confirmed the result.
"We planned to target this body," Sadykhov told UFC presenter Laura Sanko at the event Insider attended Tuesday. "He has a long, thin torso and we were looking to exploit that."
Despite the thrilling nature of Sadykhov's win, he said he was "not stoked" about the fighting lasting as long as it did.
"I had him hurt early and I was trying to put him away," he said, before adding: "I have it all. Cannons in both hands."
"Dana, sign me up!" He said in a direct message to the UFC President Dana White.
"I'm ready to do that in the UFC every single time."
Hailey Cowen edged Claudia Leite with a split decision in the second fight of the night.
After another bloody fight, the Octagonside judges deemed Hailey Cowan to have done enough against Claudia Leite to award her with a split decision win with scores of 29-28 (x2) against 28-29.
"I knew it was going to be a split decision," said Cowan. "A part of me thought it was going to be a draw. But I was pretty confident."
In her message to White, she said: "The 135-pound division needs me."
Bantamweight fighters Jack Cartwright and Jose Johnson slugged it out in the third of five fights.
Jose Johnson dominated Jack Cartwright, especially when he hit him with punches and elbows from top position.

Victory advanced Johnson's pro MMA record to 15 wins (eight knockouts, two submissions, and five decisions) against seven losses.
Claudio Ribeiro annihilated Ivan Valenzuela with ease in the penultimate fight - and you're going to want to strap yourselves in for this one.
Claudio Ribeiro knocked Ivan Valenzuela out cold with a concussive, thunderous counter strike.

Here's the Octagonside angle of the shot:
Dana White's live reaction is also worth checking out as he clearly can be seen saying: "Oh my fucking God."
Claudio Ribeiro raucously celebrated his 25-second win.
But Ribeiro wasn't the last one to score a knockout as Esteban Ribovics scored a finish of his own when he stopped Thomas Paull in 90 seconds.
