UFC Fight Night 26 Results: Sonnen submits Rua

Were you able to watch UFC Fight Night 26 yesterday at the TD Garden, Boston? You must have missed one hell of a set of fights in the recently concluded UFC Fight Night, where Sonnen won via an unusual method, that is to the forte of Shogun Rua - Jiu Jitsu.

Sonnen with his effortless takedowns were the keys but since Rua looked like he could defend well against them, Sonnen pulled off a standing guillotine, which forced the Brazilian to tap.

Another fight in the main card worth noting is the true show of toughness of Travis Browne. Alistair Overeem was deadly enough with his vicious knees but Travis saw a perfect opportunity to score a devastating KO.
