UFC 167

November 16th, 2013

Las Vegas, Nevada

MGM Grand Garden Arena

———————————————————–

Chael Sonnen returned to the win column for the first time since January of last year, submitting former light heavyweight champion, Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua in the first round at UFC Fight Night 26. He had previously lost back-to-back fights against pound-for-pound kingpins, Anderson Silva and Jon Jones in title fights.

Rashad Evans ended a two-fight losing streak with a razor-thin split decision victory over Dan Henderson at UFC 161. Evans fought for the UFC 205-pound title in April of last year, losing a unanimous decision to Jon Jones. He then followed that with an uninspiring effort against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 156, losing another unanimous decision.

Former Strikeforce and DREAM heavyweight champion, Alistair Overeem finds himself in a must win situation following back-to-back knockout losses inside the octagon. Overeem impressed in his UFC debut, dispatching of Brock Lesnar in a little over two minutes in the opening frame by TKO at UFC 141. He has since been knocked out by Antonio Silva and Travis Browne, two fights he was winning before tiring and winding up on the losing side of things.

Frank Mir once again finds himself at the crossroads of his career, losing three consecutive fights since May of last year. He fought for the title in May of last year, suffering a second round knockout to then-champ, Junior dos Santos, and has since lost a decision to Daniel Cormier, and most recently a TKO loss to Josh Barnett at UFC 164.
