(Chael Sonnen explains that it’s the Ultimate *Fighting* Championship, not the Ultimate Mitt-Hitting, High-Altitude Training, Flipping a Tire Around, Screaming the Word "Yes" Championship. Props: MMA Fighting)
Fight of the Night: Chael Sonnen and Nate Marquardt, for their bloody 15-minute grind, in which Sonnen survived a nasty choke attempt in the third round to secure the decision victory and earn a middleweight title shot.
As for a grudge match between Coleman and Tito Ortiz — who taunted Coleman after the main event — White isn’t interested. "Tito is a lot younger than him, and Tito’s talking shit to Coleman after Coleman just lost the fight that he’s wanted his whole life," White said. "Tito’s fighting Chuck. I’m not even thinking about Tito-Coleman."
Speaking of firings, Fox Fight Game’s Mike Straka asked Dana White if Frank Trigg was in any danger after picking up his second-straight stoppage loss in the UFC, to which Dana responded "probably, yeah, I would say so."
