The UFC hasn't been back to Minneapolis, Minnesota since Brock Lesnar was first climbing the heavyweight ladder all the way back in 2008. They finally returned to the Twin Cities after years of pleas from the region's fight fans, and once again with another exciting heavyweight prospect. This time with rising star Travis Browne featured in the main event.
Instead, Antonio "Big Foot" Silva brought the Browne hype train to a crashing halt. He was the clear winner of the night, knocking Browne out in the first round. Suddenly the UFC has another potential contender—one more puzzle piece for matchmaker Joe Silva to play with in the days to come.
But Silva wasn't the only winner. At every UFC event there are literal winners and losers, and some whose victories and losses are metaphorical. A fighter can have his hand raised and still be a loser, if only in the eyes of the fans and UFC brass. Likewise, a loser who fights with heart and spirit can make a name for himself in a way he never could with a dull win.
Who were the real winners and losers on FX? Let's explore together.
