Photos are in from UFC 136 and Bleacher Report has compiled the best of them together in one, easy-to-navigate location.
UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar battled through numerous near knockouts in the first round but was able to battle back and win rounds just like he did the second time he fought Gray Maynard. But even better yet, he was able out-strike "the bully" in the championship rounds and knock him out midway through the fourth round.
Edgar's performance was amazing, so let’s take a look back at as we re-live the best photos from UFC 136 in photos.
Aaron Simpson earned himself his third straight victory in the UFC on Saturday night as he out-pointed Eric Schafer by a unanimous judges' decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27).
Schafer has now dropped to a disappointing 3-5 in his UFC career and could be on the cusp of getting cut.
Chinese fighter Zhang Tie Quan has been moving up the rankings in the UFC, but ran into a bowling ball in Darren Elkins at UFC 136.
Elkins nearly submitted Tie Quan but did end up completely dominating the fight on his way to a unanimous judges' decision (30-27, 30-26, 30-27). It was his second big UFC victory in a row and he has now pushed his record in the Octagon to an impressive 3-1.
The Fight of the Night bonus went to featherweights Leonard Garcia an Nam Phan who once again battled to what could easily be considered one of the best fights of the entire year.
There was a bit of everything, but the back-and-forth slugging and near knockouts had the fans in attendance going crazy.
Nam Phan was completely robbed in the previous fight against Leonard Garcia, but the judges got it right in this one as they opted to give him a unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).
Phan had dropped each of his first two fights in the Octagon, but now he finally knows what it's like to have a victory in the big show.
All is right in the world again. Congrats, Nam Phan!
Melvin Guillard had been on an impressive streak over his past few fights and came into last night's event with all the confidence in the world.
He presumed that he was going to have a massive advantage in the standup game and carelessly flung himself at Lauzon early. Normally this kind of technique works for Guillard, but Lauzon caught him and rocked him. Guillard fell to the ground and covered up, but Lauzon took advantage of the the opportunity by taking Guillard's back and quickly submitting him with a beautiful rear-naked choke.
He was fighting an opponent who is one of the biggest middleweights in the division, but former NCAA champion wrestler Chael Sonnen just completely tossed Brian Stann around like a small child in their fight at UFC 136.
He didn't talk the usual amount of trash that he does against Stann as he said that he respects the former Marine a lot, but Sonnen was at his very best and could have probably beaten just about anyone in the division on Saturday night.
Kenny Florian has now fought in four weight classes in the UFC. After failing to secure a championship in the middleweight, welterweight or lightweight divisions, Florian moved down to the 145-pound featherweight division in 2011.
He looked good early in the fight and even seems to have Aldo in some trouble, but he one again fell short in his goal of winning a UFC title.
Maybe Frankie Edgar has Forrest Griffin syndrome where he needs to get smashed in the first round so that he can wake up and perform throughout the rest of the fight.
Edgar's face looked terrible after the first round as he bled profusely from his nose that looked like it was broken and his left eye was starting to close up, too.
Frankie Edgar battled back from the terrible first round and took the fight over from that point on. Maynard ate him up with violent uppercuts in the first round and Edgar's cornermen seemed to know exactly what to do as they helped their fighter avoid it for the remainder of the contest.
Edgar had only ever been beaten by one man, Gray Maynard, and now he can finally say that he has a victory over every opponent he has ever fought. There is no doubting that he is the be best lightweight currently signed in the UFC and Dana White even suggested in the post-fight press-conference that he might be the No. 2 pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
