The Best and the Worst of UFC Fight Night 22

Just like the fans, we also have opinions on how each fighter show off his skills. And just like any MMA fight, we have the worst and the best moments captured.

Along with other fights, The UFC Fight Night 22 crowned the best and the worst moments. Here are highs and lows on the amazing battle:

Cole Miller

He came as an underdog at TUF 9 winner Pearson, but left with one of the two Submission of the Night bonuses and a title to put a content smile on his face. He might be a little bit premature, but he stepped out to put away the chances of his opponent for Spike TV to see. He is worth it for a step up in competition after this.

Rousimar Palhares

After the humiliation on the complaint that he raised while on the game about “greasy legs” of Marquardt he’s nothing. He didn’t protect neither his so called reputation nor himself during the fight. Okay, let’s all assume that the cheats were true, why don’t you wait for the break. Marquardt let you pay for the debts.

See how the other fighters handled the fights.

After a series of complains, Pelhares went home with no luck after being TKO-ed by Nate Marquardt on UFC Fight Night 22's main card.

UFC Fight Night 22’s main hard headliner Nate Marquardt knocked out Rousimar Palhares with huge punches on the ground – only to have Palhares compalin about the cheating of his opponent by greasing up his legs.

Palhares seemed to have Marquardt where he wanted him on the ground, sinking on his signature heel hooks. But the latter pulled his leg free and Palhares complained to the referee that Marquardt must have been greasing. Stupid for Palhares to complain during the fight, Marquardt made him pay for the humiliation. Giving a hard punch and then a bunch of more punches until the referee stopped the fight.
