KING OF THE CAGE: KINGPIN RESULTS: The Dirty Bird Trashes Cody Pfister to Keep KOTC 160-Pound Crown in Texas - 8/27/11
In the main event, Tim "The Dirty Bird" Means successfully defended his KOTC Junior Welterweight Championship with a quick submission win over Cody Pfister. The less experienced Pfister had lost back-to-back fights coming into this 160-pound championship tilt, so he was a questionable challenger in the first place. Pfister tapped out to a rear-naked choke less than halfway through the first round.
PROELITE 1 RESULTS: Kendall Grove Quickly Chokes Out Joe Riggs, Andrei Arlovski Avoids Getting KO'd - 8/27/11
In the main event, The Ultimate Fighter 3 winner Kendall "Da Spyder" Grove choked out fellow former UFC fighter Joe "Diesel" Riggs in under a minute. Grove was fighting for the first time since being released from the UFC after more than half a decade in the world's leading fight organization. Back-to-back losses to Demian Maia and Tim Boetsch set the stage for Grove's UFC departure. Being a TUF winner, the UFC would surely like to have Grove back under the Zuffa fold, so another win or two and Grove should be back fighting in the Octagon.

UFC 134 RIO RESULTS: Ten Brazilians, a Bulgarian and a Canadian Win in UFC's Return to Brazil, USA Goes 0-6 - 8/27/11
In the main event, Anderson "The Spider" Silva successfully his UFC Middleweight Championship for a record ninth time with a second-round TKO victory over Yushin "Thunder" Okami. Silva also increased his UFC record for most overall consecutive victories to 14 straight. Silva is unquestionably the greatest pound-for-pound fighter currently on the planet, and perhaps the greatest MMA fighter of all time.
It was rumored that Anderson Silva might defend his title next on the UFC's network television debut, UFC on Fox 1, in a rematch against Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Dan Henderson. But before UFC 134, UFC President Dana White strongly discredited this rumor.
