Event Date: May 8, 2010
UFC 113 was memorable because we saw an Internet sensation finish off his UFC career, a sucker punch at the end of a fight and a judges' decision from a previous event receive justice in the manner only the UFC knows how to deliver.
First off, Kimbo Slice was gaining prominence for his street fights shown all over YouTube. That attention he received made him a celebrity and he decided to start training professionally. After his loss to Seth Petruzelli, Slice became a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 10: Heavyweights.
After the season, he started his UFC career. A win over Houston Alexander made Slice look like a promising brawler in the Octagon, but his next opponent, fellow T.U.F. 10 contestant, Matt Mitrione, made him look like a rookie. That loss in Montreal was Slice's last professional MMA fight (to date).
The Paul Daley vs. Josh Koscheck fight was full of fire as this fight determined the next opponent for Georges St. Pierre's UFC Welterweight Title.
After three rounds, it was clear Daley was frustrated with his performance, but what he did next got him kicked out of the UFC for good. As Koscheck was walking to his corner following the fight, Daley came in and delivered a sucker punch.
In the main event, Lyoto Machida defended the UFC Light-Heavyweight Title against Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in a rematch of UFC 104.
That fight was mired by a controversial judges' decision, one that scored 48-47 across the board.
This time around, Shogun wasn't leaving it to the judges. He scored a knockout at 3:35 of Round 1 to claim the 205-pound belt.
While it wasn't the highest attended fight card in Montreal's history, it was definitely an event that deserved a place on the top 10 based on the events that happened that night.
