UFC 167 had its fair share of strange occurrences.
To kick things off on the main card, Tim Elliott had emerged as an interesting flyweight prospect following his wins over Louis Gaudinot and Jared Papazian. That momentum went out the window, as he was outclassed by Ali Bagautinov over the course of three rounds.
Josh Koscheck apparently failed to to replicate the success Jake Shields had against Tyron Woodley. Instead, Koscheck seemed content to stand on the feet with the much faster, stronger fighter. Bad idea. Woodley blasted Koscheck not only out of consciousness but also possibly out of the UFC.
Seemingly pegged as the next champion in the welterweight division, Rory MacDonald lost to Robbie Lawler. Yes, the same Lawler whose first fight in the UFC was all the way back at UFC 37.
The evening's co-main event was a fight between pals, as Rashad Evans completed a one-sided beatdown of Chael Sonnen to take home a first-round TKO.
Georges St-Pierre retained his title but did so in a highly controversial decision win. The photos of St-Pierre's face tell it all, as the champion was involved in a very close fight that saw GSP take a lot of damage.
