GUILLOTINE: Chael Sonnen Submits Shogun Rua

Sonnen taps Shogun with a guillotine in the first

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) wanted to make a big splash with its first ever fight card on the newly debuted Fox Sports 1 tonight (Sat., Aug. 17, 2013) at the TD Garden Arena in Boston, Massachusetts, with its UFC Fight Night 26: "Shogun vs. Sonnen" event. The headlining attraction featured Mauricio Rua hoping to defend all of Brazil against loud mouthed xenophobe Chael Sonnen in a battle perhaps lacking in divisional relevance but long in name value.

The first round opened the way so many expected it to. Sonnen came out hard and fast, grabbing a takedown and working from top. Rua, much to the surprise of all, managed to work his way out and even take Chael down.

That was unexpected.

It didn't last long, though, and Sonnen was back on top in control before you could blink. He worked hard from there, using his trademark offense of seemingly pittar patter punches.

Then, suddenly, he locked on a guillotine choke and after a short battle trying his best to get out of it, the Brazilian tapped out.

Just like that.
