UFC 136 from Houston is in the books and it lived up to all the hype heading into Saturday night.
It is usually hard for an event with such hype surrounding it to live up to the expectations and leave fans fully satisfied with the $44.95 they spent to order it. But it seems to be one of the rare events that has people buzzing long into the next week.
What made this event so entertaining was the unexpected. There were several questions fight fans had coming into this event. How was Chael going to look? Could Florian get over the hump?

There were plenty of surprises on this card in the octagon, but what has people talking the most may be the action outside the cage.
What follows is a list of the five biggest surprises coming out of UFC 136.
