UFC 140 was SICK!


Jon Jones def. Lyoto Machida via submission (guillotine).
Machida dropped, and Jones locked up guillotine as he got back to his feet. Jones switched to a modified grip and squeezed the choke tight on a standing Machida. Big John finally moved in and Jones released him, letting his unconscious body fall to the floor like a bag of dirty laundry. And still the champ.

Frank Mir def. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira via submission (kimura).
Mir dislocated Nogueira's shoulder and forced him to submit in the first round of their fight. Seeing Nogueira tap out is something many MMA fans thought they'd never witness. Now it has happened.

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira def. Tito Ortiz via first-round TKO.
Knee to the body from Nogueira, and Ortiz was down. Nogueira wailed away on a mostly unresponsive Ortiz. Finally, referee Lavigne had seen enough violence for one night and he moved in to stop it. As Nogueira jumped up to celebrate, Ortiz rolled to his knees holding his ribs. That man was in pain.
