It is needless to say that this was a crazy fight that could have gone either way as both Arman and Gamrot dominated two rounds each. Nonetheless, these two lightweights put on a terrific show for five rounds at UFC Vegas 57. Therefore it wouldn’t be surprising if the UFC decides to book a rematch between Tsarukyan and Gamrot down the line.
