UFC Fight Night 26 results recap: Shogun Rua vs Chael Sonnen event wrap up from Boston

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Wrapping up the UFC Fight Night 26: "Shogun vs. Sonnen" event that took place on Sat., Aug. 17, 2013, at the TD Garden Arena in Boston, Massachusetts, featuring Shogun Rua vs. Chael Sonnen, and much, much more.

UFC Fight Night 26: "Shogun vs. Sonnen" lit up TD Bank Garden in Boston, Mass., this past Sat., Aug. 17, 2013, featuring a Light Heavyweight non-title main event in which Chael Sonnen pulled off a surprise first round submission (guillotine choke) over Mauricio Rua (watch highlights here).

The co-main event was just as thrilling, with Travis Browne surviving and early Alistair Overeem lashing to score a thunderous knockout (watch highlights here) that was set up with an Anderson Silva-esque front kick to the face.

The other four main card bouts that aired on FOX Sports 1 were also a treat (sans John Howard vs. Uriah Hall) with Urijah Faber steamrolling Yuri Alcantara en route to a unanimous decision, Matt Brown destroying Mike Pyle in less than 30 seconds and Michael Johnson beating Joe Lauzon from pillar to post for 15 minutes (see what it looked like).

In cased you missed any or all of it -- or just want to keep the discussion alive -- below are links to all the major storylines borne from Saturday night's event in Boston.
