Georges St-Pierre
Vs.
BJ Penn

The sold out MGM Grand Garden arena was witness to a Mixed Martial Arts clinic, as UFC welterweight champion Georges "Rush" St-Pierre punished BJ Penn for four rounds. Using his superior wrestling skills and ground and pound, GSP dominated a defenseless Penn leaving him unable to answer the fifth round bell.

After a first round feeling out process, GSP quickly went to work in the second round and found a home for his jab on Penn's nose. The fight would eventually go to the ground and would remain there the duration of the fight.

GSP blanketed "The Prodigy" while on the ground landing a barrage of crushing blows to the head, body and the will of the usually confident Penn. Penn was unable to mount any offense from his back as GSP gave him no openings.

The champ continued his assault on Penn as the fourth round came to a close and the beatings would end there as Penn's corner refused to let him endure more; ending his bid to become the first dual title holder in UFC history.

The night's co-main event featured two talented Brazilians with perfect 13-0 records; only one would leave undefeated. Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida turned in a Jordanesque performance as he scored a buzzer beating knockout over Thiago Silva.

Machida used his elusive karate style to counter punch the aggressive Silva, as he dominated round one. He was able to knockdown Silva on more than one occasion and used a nifty foot sweep to set up the final blow.

With seconds left on the clock, Machida landed a buzzer beating right hand that left Silva motionless and quickly added a left hand as time expired. Referee Yves Lavigne quickly waved off the fight as Silva was unable to wake up from his siesta.

The victory marks Machida's fifth straight within the octagon and might earn him a title shot depending on how Quinton Jackson fares against Keith Jardine.

Stephan "The American Psycho" Bonnar
Vs.
Jon "Bones" Jones

In an already stacked light heavyweight division, Jon "Bones" Jones is ready to stake his claim.

"Bones" surprised Stephan Bonnar with a wild array of suplexes and throws that would make the Steiner Brothers jealous. The 21-year old Jones stymied Bonnar with his unorthodox striking style and even posterized "The American Psycho" with a spinning elbow.

Bonnar used his counter punches in the final round and was able to see glimpses of hope as Jones began to tire, but hope quickly ran out as Jones quickly dropped him back to reality. Jones earned the unanimous decision and remains unbeaten at 8-0.

Two of the better judokas were on display as welterweights Karo "The Heat" Parisyan squeaked out a split decision victory over Korea's Dong Hyun Kim.

In an extremely hard fight to judge, it looked like Kim would be victorious as he took round one and "The Heat" looked ice cold. A Greg Jackson pep talk finally lit something under Parisyan as we saw a vintage judo throw and he quickly worked a kimura.

Guida relied on his heart and cardio as he looked for takedowns and landed some effective ground and pound. He stayed away from any dangerous submission attempts from Diaz and survived a last-minute flurry.

Diaz would suffer his first loss in the UFC and the victory for Guida is his third straight. "I know it wasn't pretty, but it's a win, and like I said, I'm here and I'm coming for the top of the lightweight division," said Guida, post fight. "Be ready for me."
