UFC Fight Night 26 kicked off Fox Sports 1 in grand fashion. Including the two-hour prelims, 10 fights were featured on the new 24-hour sports network, and the event delivered on virtually all fronts.
Chael Sonnen got back into his winning ways with a submission victory over Shogun Rua. The No. 9-ranked middleweight was previously on a two-fight losing streak to two of the greatest fighters in history—Anderson Silva and Jon Jones.
In the co-main event of the evening, Travis Browne picked up a knockout against Alistair Overeem. The win puts Browne into the mix at heavyweight, and it is the second straight KO loss for Overeem.
There were plenty more in action, and there was a lot of shuffling across all divisions. Some fighters enhanced their stock, and others drastically hurt theirs. Per usual, it was a mixed bag.
