UFC 244 is off to a flying start, with Lyman Good handing out some real pain to Chance Rencountre on home soil. American Cyborg delivered in front of the Madison Square Garden fans, perhaps giving them a preview of what they'll see later Saturday night when Masvidal and Diaz take the Octagon.
A left-handed jab by Cyborg brought Rencountre down to the mat, and he couldn't recover. Good delivered several punches while Rencountre was attempting to cover himself in a vulnerable position, only for the official to eventually call the fight. With the win, the welterweight Good improved his overall record to 21-5-0 for his career.
