Demian Maia was a relatively big favorite in his home country of Brazil but Jake Shields came in and silenced the crowd. And in the process, thwarted any talk of Maia getting a title shot against Georges St-Pierre. In the co-main, Dong Hyun Kim rendered Brazilian's Eric Silva momentarily unconscious with a monster left. 

Although Brazilian fighters won 4 out of 6 on the main card, something tells me Brazilian fans are anything but satisfied with a .667 batting average.
