UFC 109 Fight Bonuses and Tito being Tito

A good night of fights tonight at UFC 109 with some good finishes sprinkled in with a lot of decisions. The finish by Randy Couture was a bit of a pleasant surprise as many thought he’d win but by a decision and to pull out a submission was nice. That was only the second submission is Couture’s UFC career (21 fights) and that’s saying a lot. The great thing was that wasn’t even the submission of the nightas that went to Paulo Thiago for his D’arce choke submission of Mike Swick.
