Knockout of the Night: Alessio Sakara

Some promising developments coming out of the undercard for the UFC. Former IFL champ Dan Miller took his first step up the UFC middleweight ladder with a deconstruction of Xtreme Couture's Rob Kimmons. Kimmons was coming off a UFC win of his own so hopefully we'll see him back as well.

Mike Massenzio, another IFL vet and teammate of Jon Jones, is also on his way up after submitting Team Militech's Drew McFedries. Massenzio has a decision win over Dan Miller from their days on the smaller circuits. Perhaps a rematch is in order.

Jason Brilz showed he could hang at the UFC level with a win over Aussie Brad Morris. Brilz has a King of the Cage split decision win over Jason "Don't Call Me a Gatekeeper" MacDonald, could be the makings of a rematch there but I'd say let Brilz get a couple more wins first.

TUF veteran Joe Lauzon survived a scare in the first round (you could hear the bookies knees getting weak all over Vegas as the -600 favorite got rocked). Lauzon goes back into the just a couple wins out of contention pile in the packed UFC lightweight class.

And Wilson Gouveia and Alessio Sakara showed they can beat journeymen at 185. Maybe the two of them should be matched up to see if either can build up some steam at middleweight.
