For a while there, it looked as if Alistair Overeem was going to knee and punch Travis Browne into oblivion, and all seemed as it should be in the world. But then Browne rallied, and while Overeem stood around wishing his giant muscles didn't require so much damn oxygen, the Greg Jackson-trained fighter just kept feeding the Dutchman front kicks until one caught Overeem on the chin and dropped him.

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?)
