    UFC 163 was a strange event. Especially in the final two bouts.

    The main event saw Jose Aldo defeat The Korean Zombie by TKO. However, it wasn't until Jung separated his shoulder did Aldo flurry for the finish. He was up on the scorecards, but the injury to Jung was what put him away. Not Aldo.
