There was a lot of chaos in the aftermath of UFC 167.
Champion Georges St-Pierre lost the fight on the large majority of public scorecards, but won on two of the three that actually mattered. Johny Hendricks watched the welterweight title he probably earned float back to the welterweight king upon Bruce Buffer's announcement. If that weren't enough, the pound-for-pound great skittered his way through a post-fight interview that sounded like a retirement only to have UFC president Dana White toss him under the bus at the post-fight press conference.
With all that insanity it's easy to lose track of one of the night's biggest winners and the triumphant return of Rashad Evans. Granted, the former light heavyweight champion put the brakes on a recent rough patch by defeating Dan Henderson at UFC 161 in June, but it was his utter steamrolling of former two-divisional title challenger Chael Sonnen that confirmed his re-arrival back to form.
While the bout was ultimately a short showing and ended well before the conclusion of the opening round, "Suga" has never looked better as he systematically dismantled the "Gangster from West Linn." There were no wasted movement in Evans' attack as every inch of his physical output went to getting rid of Sonnen in the early goings. And after putting the Oregon native on his back, he did just that, as Evans took full mount and pounded out the stoppage.
