What a great main event!
In a bout that many expected to be a lopsided, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua pulled out a fourth-round TKO over Brandon Vera in what ended up being a very competitive fight.
It was a surprisingly grappling, heavy showing from Shogun, who's usually content to stand and bang. Perhaps, he underestimated Vera's striking a tad coming in.
Vera put forth an overall gutsy effort, and it was more than clear that he wanted in his bones to win.
However, it wasn't meant to be, and Shogun put together another win on his way back to the title.
