Captain America returned not only to the UFC Octagon this past Saturday night, but fans’ hearts, a place that he really never left. With his five-round domination of Tim Sylvia, Couture secured the UFC Heavyweight Championship for the third time in his career.
Not many gave the 43 year-old Couture – giving up more than 40 pounds in weight advantage to Sylvia – a chance at taking the title, but his performance had a record crowd of more than 19,000 fans standing and cheering at the end of the night.
Jason Lambert was being handled for the better part of the first round Saturday night before he made a comeback. Towards the end of the first round, he dropped Renato “Babalu” Sobral and then finished him off in the second round by knockout.
Couture and Lambert stop by tonight’s edition of MMAWeekly Radio, LIVE at 6pm PT / 9pm ET to discuss their fights and Damon & Jeff also check in the MMA super agent Ken Pavia for an update on his ever increasing stable of fighters.
