Saturday 27th December 2008
A great night of MMA fights at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Forrest Griffin, the defending light heavyweight champion started his fight with challenger Rashad Evans well but got taken down and ground & pounded into a TKO in the third round.
A lot of MMA fans seemed to give Frank Mir little to no chance in his fight with Antonio Nogueira but he came out and dominated on his feet, and chose to keep the fight standing. After knocking Nogueira down twice in the first round, Mir again put Nogueira down in the second and piled on the punches until referee Herb Dean stepped in to stop the action. This was the first time Nogueira has ever been stopped.

UFC 91 Results: Lesnar stops Couture
Brock Lesnar tonight proved he is a force to be reckoned with in MMA, soundly defeating Randy Couture in the second round. Although all three judges scored the first round 10-9 to Lesnar, Couture was able to frustrate Lesnar’s attempts to dominate, and Lesnar was warned by referee Mario Yamasaki for holding the fence to avoid a takedown.
Lesnar hurts Couture with a standing elbow early in the second round. Both fighters score knees, and Lesnar is cut over the eye – possibly by a right hand from Couture. After a clinch Lesnar lands a knee to Couture’s chin and hurts him. At around the halfway mark of the round Lesnar lands a right hand to Couture’s head and drops him.
Lesnar sees his opportunity, pounces and piles on the hammerfists. Couture appears to have nothing to offer, and after allowing Couture an opportunity to stay in the fight Yamasaki steps in to stop it.
Brock Lesnar wins the UFC heavyweight belt by TKO in the second round.
