UFC Fight Night 26 was a night of some decent fights but big suprises… atleast for me.

Fight Night 26 featured Alcantra vs Faber, Overeem vs Browne, and the main event Chael Sonnen vs Shogun Rua.

Come inside to see fight video and some of my thoughts on the fights.

Faber pulled out a unanimous decision victory after surviving some heat from Yuri Alcantra in the first round.

Check out the full fight video highlight of Faber vs Yuri Alcantra brought to you by FOXSports:

After Urijah’s 3rd win in a row, it will be interesting to see whats next for him?

He has been able to beat all but the best in his stint with the UFC and his name is never far away from title fights.

I would personally love to see a superfight between Urijah Faber and Frankie Edgar, they are both big names with tons of heart and it would be a fight fans have dreamed about for years.

Neither fighter has much to lose from the fight, they both have lost to their divisions champions and both manage to always be in title contention.

Okay, enough of my dream fights… let’s check out some fight video on the stunning upset of Travis Browne vs Alistair Overeem.

I said upset but many people were calling Browne to win and I will admit I didn’t think Browne had a chance considering I thought people were just too excited over the fact Overeem got caught slipping by Bigfoot.

Well unfortunately for Overeem I was wrong, and now Alistair finds himself on a two loss streak in the UFC.

Two losses that could have easily been two W’s but he couldn’t finish neither fight and ended up gassing himself out to his 2nd K.O. loss on Saturday.

One thing I noticed about The Reem is that when he gets tired his reflexes go out.

Yeah, I know, common sense right?

Nooo, I mean when he gets tired his reflexes literally disapear, like he no longer moves or reacts to anything and seems to think he can eat strikes to his face in which results in what happeneds below:

And here is full fight video highlight of Browne vs Overeem that shows the K.O. ending brought to you by FOXSports:

Another stunning loss for Overeem and it’s going to be interesting to see where he goes from here.

Now for the main event, Chael Sonnen vs Mauricio Shogun Rua, this one really broke my heart:

I was expecting this to be a war, much like the Shogun vs Dan Henderson fight.

I thought Shogun would be strong enough to defend Chaels takedowns and light him up on their feet

Of course I was expecting Chael to be persistent and make it a war by landing some takedowns /clinching.

But I was looking at it to go the distance with both men beating up and waiting to get their hands raised… but shows how good of a grappler Chael really is catching Shogun in a guillotine in the first round!
