10 of the best finishes from this weekend’s action.

A closer look at some of the weekend's best finishes.

The weekend is the best part of the week as we sit down to watch an action packed schedule of MMA. We had 5 events this weekend including a homecoming for Cage Warriors Jai Herbert at CW109 in Birmingham and the culmination of the Welterweight Grand Prix in Bellator. As always we were not short of spectacular finishes, so sit back and enjoy the best of the action from the weekend.

2. Beneil Dariush def. Frank Camacho via Submission (Rear Naked Choke) Round 1

After a first round KO loss at the hands of Alexander Hernandez last year, Dariush has now won 3 fights in a row and is back among the divisions top 15. Many thought Dariush would prove to be too much for Camacho and that was the case as he submitted him in the first round.

After a successful debut earlier this year, Cyril Gane improved to 2-0 in the UFC  with a dominant performance over Contender Series alumn Don’tale Mayes.
