Watch the full fight video highlights for the UFC Fight Night: Bangor main event between Ryan Bader and Ovince Saint Preux.

Following an extended three-week break from face-punching action, the UFC returned with a fun fight card in its debut event in Bangor, Maine. The card was headlined by a main event between No. 8 ranked Ryan Bader and 10th ranked Ovince Saint Preux.

Here is Dallas Winston's play-by-play for the fifth round of the fight:

Three kicks from Saint Preux early in the final frame. Then a left hand. Saint Preux's left hand is sloppy but he does connect with a left kick. Surprisingly, Saint Preux catches Bader off guard with a level change and takes the All-American wrestler down. Bader gets to his knees but Saint Preux freezes him with the front headlock. Bader slips free and then hits a nice counter hip throw to put Saint Preux on his back.

Bader looks to isolate an arm but Saint Preux defends and creates a scramble, managing a few short elbows to the head. Saint Preux can't hit the switch but it backs Bader off and Saint Preux gets him partially down with a double leg. Bader stands and shoots but eats more elbows to the temple, which have sprung a leak on the side of Bader's head. Bader stays attached and shoots a takedown every time Saint Preux has space, landing none but succeeding in stifling Saint Preux's offense. 10-9 Saint Preux. I have it 48-47 for Bader.
