UFC 164 crowned a new king of the lightweight division.
Anthony Pettis defended against Benson Henderson for the majority of the round, and then he locked up an armbar to illicit the verbal submission. Just like that and we have a new champion at 155.
In the co-main event, Josh Barnett stormed Frank Mir and finished against the cage. It could have been a quick stoppage, but it was justifiable in the manner of which Mir fell to the canvas.
A fun night overall.
