A Green straight left hand sent Dawson to the ground, and after a flurry of punishing strikes, the referee stopped the match. Green gets back in the victory column after three fights (2 loses, 1 NC). Dawson's 10-fight undefeated streak in the UFC ends in just thirty-three seconds.
Scottish lightweight Stevie Ray has announced his retirement from mixed martial arts. Ray finishes with a record of 25-13. His stock rose between 2015 and 2017 when he went 5-1 in the UFC, but losses and injuries led to him leaving the UFC and a three-year period of inactivity. He made a strong comeback in PFL in 2022 with back-to-back wins over Anthony Pettis, but went 0-2 in this 2023 regular season.
