Mention the name "Shogun" to some fighters and they'll start quivering in fear, imagining beatings and violence humans should not have to experience in their lives. But mention Shogun to Chael Sonnen, and Sonnen will shrug and say "I choked him out with a guillotine in less than round. Yeah, that's what's up." What sort of world do we live in where that happens?

If you’re like me, you went into UFC Fight Night 26 last night expecting Chael Sonnen to lay on top of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua for 25 minutes, Alistair Overeem to eat some poor dude’s soul, and Joe Lauzon to do what Joe Lauzon does. Also, if you’re like me, stop biting my style. That’s so desperate. Everyone thinks you’re so desperate.
Anyway, UFC Fight Night 26 was full of surprises. Here are the top five that made me say “WTF?” (Because in real life I actually talk in acronyms – OMG, right?)
