UFC 164 was headlined by one of the most anticipated rematches in recent memory as Benson Henderson looked to defend his title against the last man to defeat him, Anthony Pettis.
Henderson would be unsuccessful in his title defense as Milwaukee celebrated with their hometown hero. The end came quickly as Pettis slapped on a slick armbar from the bottom and secured a verbal tap out from Henderson.
In the evening’s co-main event, two of MMA’s best grapplers faced one another as Frank Mir took on a returning Josh Barnett. Fans were eagerly anticipating some grappling scrambles, but instead saw Barnett take home a TKO victory following some excellent clinch work.
The rest of the evening’s card was also filled with great action, and UFC 164 could go down as one of the best events of 2013. Looking forward, the winners of UFC 164 will have a tough task ahead of them if they hope to top their work from Milwaukee.
