Many thought they had seen the best fight in MMA history when Dan Henderson and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua battled in a five-round war at UFC 139, and UFC president Dana White even told them it was one of the best fights he had ever seen in his most recent vlog video.
Henderson walked away with a hard-fought but well-deserved unanimous decision victory after a bloody and intense light-heavyweight bout. Some thought Rua deserved the victory based on a dominant fifth round, which was scored 10-9 on all three judges' scorecards despite the round being the most dominant of the fight.
In the co-main event, former Strikeforce middleweight champion Cung Le took on Wanderlei Silva, but lost in the second round after taking a barrage of knees and punches from the former Pride champion. It was Silva's third victory in his last nine fights, and a much-needed one at that.
Other fighters on the card included Urijah Faber, Martin Kampmann and Stephan Bonnar, all of whom were victorious over their opposition.
