Rodrigo Nogueira on Saturday night became the first man in history to win both
a Pride heavyweight championship and an Ultimate Fighting Championship strap as
well.

fight,

heaviest hands he’s ever been hit by, his win, his title, and his future.

 

In
lightweight action, Tyson Griffin returned to the cage to capture his third
straight victory since dropping a close decision to Frankie Edgar at UFC 67.

 

Griffin
displayed a much more mature, patient striking game at UFC 81, finally letting
his kicks go to great effect. Still not able to put the fight away, he did
dominate Gleison Tibau en route to a unanimous decision.

about the strength of Tibau, his own growth as a fighter, and what he would like
to see on the horizon for himself as he climbs the ladder in arguably the most
stacked division in the UFC.
