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

As I predicted, his fight against Brad Pickett got Fight of the Night. This was McDonald’s highest profile win to date and an awesome bounce back from his loss in a title fight to Renan Barao. The most amazing part of this fight, however, was probably how good of a chin Pickett has, as he took haymaker after haymaker. McDonald now jumps right back into the title picture.

    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!
