  • Alan Patrick def. Garett Whiteley via TKO (punches) – Round 1, 3:54

Big Winner: Dong Hyun Kim. His knockout victory over the home town star, Silva, proved to not only be a highlight victory, but a great fight as well.

Big Loser: Rousimar Palhares. Tough to call him a loser with such a big victory, however there was no doubt that he kept the submission on for too long. That kind of poor sportsmanship is never a good thing, especially in the world of MMA.

The Real Big Winner: The winner of Carlos Condit/Matt Brown. Yes, Jake Shields was victorious, but he proved once again that even in victory you can be a loser. His “smothering” style led to more yawns than cheers.
