Faber/Brown II

Don't usually do MMA posts on here, so this oughta be a treat.

Tonight was the WEC featherweight championship rematch between Urijah Faber and Mike Brown. Brown beat the "California Kid" with a first round knockout back in November to win the featherweight belt.

This time around, viewers were treated to a great five round fight, with Brown winning a unanimous decision. Faber though, did injure his right hand at the end of the first round, and apparently his left hand later on, relegating him to use elbows instead of punches. However, he did put up a great fight, and I'm sure down the road we'll see a third matchup between the two. That is, of course, unless Jose Aldo dethrones Brown.

Aldo, who was 15-1 headed into the night, didn't do much tonight, but he certainly was efficient. He matched up against Cub Swanson (13-3 headed into the match), however, Swanson didn't seem to matchup with him, because Aldo ended the fight in eight seconds.

No, that is not a misprint. Aldo knocked out Swanson in eight seconds. The two tapped gloves, Aldo jumped and kneed Swanson in the face. Swanson hit the mat, then Aldo gave a couple punches to the head before the official called the match.

As a matter or fact, it probably took you longer to read the summary of Aldo's fight than the actual fight took.

In case you were wondering, here's a list of things that take longer to do than Aldo's beatdown of Swanson.

- Start up your car.
- Change the channel from Versus to ABC to check the score of the Lakers-Magic Game 2 (post on that coming later).
- Pour yourself a beverage.
- Find Versus on your cable or satellite listings.
