UFC Fight Night 24 featured sharp action, a never-before-seen-in-the-UFC submission, a brutal TKO stoppage and two unanimous decisions. No undercard matches were shown.

Light heavyweight Phil Davis passed a huge test by edging Antonio Rogerio Nogueira to take a 30-27 unanimous decision.Welterweight Anthony Johnson used his wrestling and power to utterly dominate Dan Hardy en route to a clear unanimous decision win. Amir Sadollah stopped DaMarques Johnson with a brutal beating from an utterly dominant position. Chan Sung Jung, aka "The Korean Zombie" stopped Leonard Garcia with the first twister neck crank in UFC  history.

I've addressed this in a full piece, but Phil Davis looks less like an imminent threat to Jon Jones' title despite his big win.

Anthony Johnson re-emerged as a potential contender in the UFC's welterweight division. With his size, raw power and wrestling he's potentially a physical threat to Georges St. Pierre. But Johnson will have to put together a string of convincing wins over increasingly formidable competition to get a title shot. He'll have to show a lot more discipline and consistency than he's put together previously.

Amir Sadollah feasted on DaMarques Johnson not quite being in top competition after fighting on two weeks notice. The former The Ultimate Fighter winner outclassed Johnson by a wide margin in the second round after Johnson faded early.

Chan Sung Jung, "the Korean Zombie" made a statement against his old rival Leonard Garcia, beating him up on the feet and then scoring the first ever "twister" submission ever seen in the UFC. Jung fought a much more disciplined fight on the feet, but he still hurt Garcia repeatedly. The difference was this time he also took him down and hurt him on the ground too. Then he put the coup de grace on it by scoring the submission.

I expect the ratings on this could be less than hoped as it follows the pay per view one week ago so closely.
