5 Biggest Winners at UFC Fight Night 26: Shogun vs. Sonnen

Even though Johnson was fighting on the main card, he may have been fighting for his job. With two losses in a row coming in, a bad performance could have gotten him a pink slip. I’m not so sure it was one of the most dominating performances in UFC history like Dana White said, but it was definitely impressive. Johnson more than saved his job while he peppered Joe Lauzon with strikes throughout the entire fight. Mandatory Credit: Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

    I am stunned that anyone thought Rua would beat Sonnen. Styles make fights and Rua, a little chubby with bad cardio, had merely a puncher’s chance against the tireless rabid dog that is Chael Sonnen. I expected Chael to hold him down for 5 rounds, but I was happy to see him taking it up a notch and really destroying Rua.

    I hope Rua learns that he needs to get in shape and move down to his natural weight class.

    Somebody feed Matt Brown a top 5 fighter. That dude is hungry!
