The Nominees

Brandon Davis def. Randy Costa at UFC 236

Fighting for the first time at bantamweight, Brandon Davis (10-6 MMA, 2-3 UFC) went toe-to-toe with a promising newcomer in Randy Costa (4-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) before ultimately scoring an impressive submission win.

After the entertaining fight somehow lasted the first round, Davis wasted no time in the second. Davis was able to push inside and bring the fight to the floor, sneaking immediately around to the back, where he locked in a rear-naked choke and earned a tap just 72 seconds into the second frame.
