UFC on FOX 4 Results: The Most Memorable Moments from Shogun vs. Vera
Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

It wasn’t the most-hyped event that the UFC has put on in recent months, but UFC on Fox 4 proved once again that just because there isn’t a title fight on a card doesn’t mean that it won’t deliver with some incredible fights.

The co-main events featured two light heavyweight bouts, one between Lyoto Machida and Ryan Bader, and the other between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Brandon Vera.

Shogun vs. Vera was originally scheduled to be a No. 1 contenders’ fight, with the winner becoming the next challenger in line for a shot at the UFC light heavyweight championship. But when the Internet cried out against this decision due to Vera’s relative lack of success in the cage recently, UFC President Dana White made the decision to give all four light heavyweights on the main card a shot at becoming the No. 1 contender.

The fighter with the best performance would be given the title fight, which meant that every man had a ton to gain by putting it all on the line...and they did just that.

This unique format allowed for some epic moments that we won’t soon forget. Let’s look back at the best of those moments from UFC on Fox 4.
