Nothing like a 21 second KO to settle a famous MMA trilogy, right?
Ouch. Penn wins the trilogy over Matt Hughes 2-1 with that emphatic KO and avoids his 3rd straight loss of 2010. There is no way I’d give Penn another shot at GSP after that mauling he took the last time, but that was an incredible win by BJ tonight. I have no idea what Matt Hughes is going to do next, but that has to be the end of him being a relevant fighter in the welterweight division.
In the main event of a great UFC 123, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson upset Lyoto Machida via controversial split decision, giving Rampage a much-needed win and Lyoto a 2nd straight loss.
