UFC FOX Sports 1 results: Sonnen submits Rua, Browne KO’s Overeem

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) made its FOX Sports 1 debut with UFC Fight Night 26: “Shogun vs. Sonnen” from TD Bank Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

What an unbelievable fight card tonight (August 17, 2013) as Chael Sonnen submitted Shogun Rua with a guillotine choke in the opening-round.  Sonnen was relentless from the get go with multiple take downs and big shots from the guard.   This puts Sonnen up in the ranks for a future world-title shot.

In co-main event action, Travis Browne delivered a surprising head kick knockout over Alistair Overeem to score a beautiful first-round victory.  Both fighters looked tired heading into the dying seconds of the first-round but Browne was able to pull off a front kick followed by a barrage of punches to end Overeem’s night.
