1) It was a very long night
It' safe to say that Saturday's night of fights was not the most exciting. Of the 11 fights, 9 went to the distance. That ties UFC on FUEL TV 7 for most decisions ever on a UFC card.
2) Rashad Evans etched himself in the UFC history books
Say what you may about "Suga", but the man is a proven light-heavyweight commodity. On Saturday night, Evans tied Jon Jones for the second most wins in UFC 205lb history at 12. However, both men have quite the ways to go to in order to be number 1. "The Iceman" Chuck Liddell takes that spot with 16 wins.
3) Hendo lost again
4) Despite the overwhelming loss, Roy Nelson became the iron-chinned king
There's no do denying that Roy Nelson was absolutely decimated by Stipe Miocic. "Big Country" absorbed a total 129 strikes against the part-time firefighter. On the plus, Nelson can brag that he has now absorbed a grand total of 437 significant strikes throughout his UFC career without being knocked out. That's a UFC record.
5) If Ryan Jimmo fights in Canada he's going to be a contender(Just Kidding)
Man, Ryan Jimmo and Igor Pokrajac really stunk up the MTS Centre. However, Jimmo did manage to bring his MMA record to 18-1 when fighting in his home country of Canada.
6) Pat Barry was involved in another Knockout of the Night award. Unfortunately...
For the 6th consecutive time, Barry was involved in a bonus award of the night. Unfortunaley for him, he was on the other end of Shawn Jordan's fists and KOTN performance. The loss marks the 3rd time Barry has been on the bad side of a Knockout of the Night.
7) James Krause made a hell of a UFC debut
UFC newcomer James Krause netted an extra $100,000 for his guillotine choke on Sam Stout, making him the 22nd fighter to win a double fight bonuses.
8) Yet again, Sam Stout still got paid
Sure, Sam Stout lost. But he still managed to make more than most Americans do in a year. Not only did Stout take home an extra $50,000, he also picked up his 6th UFC Fight of the Night award. That ties him for the most in promotion history with Frankie Edgar and Chris Lytle.
9) The Canucks has a solid night
Overall, Canadians went 6-1 vs. foreign opposition Saturday night.
10) UFC 161 reportedly drew an attendance of 14,754 for a live gate of $3,150,000.
