The talk around UFC 136 was that this could be the best PPV of 2011, and while the card didn’t have the big names that many casual fans knew, it had more than enough talent to make it interesting from the facebook fights through the Spike TV Prelims and through the main PPV.
With two title fights and plenty of attention on a few possible No. 1 contender bouts, the possibilities from this PPV were immense and its impact on the UFC will be felt for months to come.
The best part of the evening came after Chael Sonnen beat Brian Stann in a one-sided match that showed off Sonnen’s amazing wrestling skills. It was during the post-fight interview that Sonnen called out Middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
“I beat you, you leave division. You beat me, I leave the UFC forever,” Sonnen said.
With a wild night over, all we can do is look forward and think of all the fights that this PPV could yield. Overall, UFC 136 was a great show.
