Chael Sonnen stunned Shogun with a submission finish in the first round.

Sonnen used his top position to work on Shogun early on, and when Shogun was working to his feet Sonnen took the choke. He locked it up, and the former champion had no choice but to tap out.

A surprising end to a long night of exciting fights!
