UFC 108: Evans vs. Silva – Las Vegas, Nev. – MGM Grand Garden Arena – Jan. 2, 2010

Rashad “Suga” Evans took advantage of his opponent’s showboating to finish the first UFC pay-per-view of a new decade.

Evans battled Thiago Silva in the main event of UFC 108 and controlled most of the action. Silva made a comeback in the third round, but then he started playing to the crowd.

This allowed Evans to regain control and win a unanimous decision.

In the co-main event, Paul Daley picked up his second knockout win in the Octagon, stopping Dustin Hazelett in 2:24.

In lightweight action, Sam Stout beat Joe Lauzon by unanimous decision; and Jim Miller used an armbar to force Duane “Bang” Ludwig to tap out at the 2:31 mark.

Junior dos Santos improved to 4-0 in the UFC heavyweight division with a TKO win over Gilbert Yvel in 2 minutes, 7 seconds.

On the Spike TV pre-show, Martin “The Hitman” Kampmann beat Jacob Volkmann with a guillotine choke at the 4:03 mark.

Cole Miller combined a kimura and a reverse triangle to force Dan Lauzon to submit at 3:05.

In the early preliminary fights, Mark Munoz forced Ryan Jensen to submit to a flurry of strikes.

Jake Ellenberger picked up his first win in the Octagon by TKO over Mike Pyle; and Rafaello Oliviera beat the debuting John Gunderson by unanimous decision.
