UFC 132 Results: Biggest Winner and Loser from UFC 132

Biggest Winner: Tito Ortiz/Melvin Guillard

Tito Ortiz was by far the biggest winner from UFC 132. With a first round submission over Ryan Bader, Ortiz answered all the critics in a big way, myself included, saving his UFC career with the win.

How did Ortiz do it? It all started with a crisp right hand to the jaw of Bader, which sent him to the mat with Ortiz eventually sinking in the guillotine choke at 1:56 of the first round.

Where does this put Ortiz now? 

Fans may see Ortiz against the winner of Franklin vs Lil Nog, though I'd personally like to see more integration of the Strikeforce merger, with Ortiz matching up against "King" Mo Lawal.

I also have Melvin Guillard as an option 1a for biggest winner award. He showed his power yet again against tough as nails Shane Roller, and his stock probably rose the most out of any fighter on tonight's card. 

Guillard has made it known prior to his fight against Roller that Jim Miller was the fight he wanted. That fight is more of a possibility now that Guillard dominated Roller at UFC 132

Biggest Loser: Ryan Bader/Wanderlei Silva

Ryan Bader's stock dropped moderately with his loss against Jon Jones at UFC 126, but it has fallen off the radar after his loss to Tito Ortiz at UFC 132. Bader has now lost his last two in a row, and will likely take a little time off before facing a much lower ranked fighter likely.

I also feel that Wanderlei Silva was on the cusp of enjoying his 35th birthday tomorrow, but after slightly wobbling Leben, he found himself face down on the mat instead. He's heading on the downside of his career, but it will be interesting to see who the UFC will match Wandy up against next.
