UFC 79: nemesis Odds

UFC 79: Nemesis was a mixed martial arts (MMA) event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), that took place on December 29, 2007 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The main events featured the long anticipated fight between Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva, as well as the highly anticipated rubber match between former UFC Welterweight Champions Georges St-Pierre and Matt Hughes for the interim Welterweight championship.

Additionally, PRIDE light heavyweight sensation Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou made his UFC debut against undefeated Lyoto Machida.

Matt Hughes vs Georges St. Pierre:

Round 2: The fighters' heads collided seconds before St. Pierre muscled Hughes to the canvas with a single-leg takedown. Both athletes were lucky not to have gotten cut. The action slowed to a crawl as St. Pierre looked to elbow from Hughes' full-guard. St. Pierre moved to half-guard and mount seconds after.

Hughes gave up his back, but escaped quickly to his feet. Hughes looked for a single-leg, but GSP had none of it. St. Pierre threw Hughes to the mat and went immediately to a Kimura from side-control. Hughes tried to muscle out, but was caught in an armbar.

St-Pierre defeated Hughes via submission (armbar) at 4:54 of round 2 to become the Interim UFC Welterweight Champion.
