UFC 92 Wiki Update Wiki

In a rare feat even for the world’s top MMA promotion, the UFC generated over 1 Million Pay Per View buys for the second consecutive event with UFC 92, which featured three of the most anticipated fights of the year: a Light Heavyweight Championship bout between Forrest Griffin and Rashad Evans; an Interim Heavyweight Championship bout between Frank Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira; and a grudge match between former Pride superstars Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Wanderlei Silva.


Evans took the title from Griffin in what was the first-ever championship fight between two former TUF winners/contestants, Mir became the first man to finish Nogueira in a professional fight (though Nogueira was less than 100% heading into the bout), and Jackson took vengeance over Silva by knocking him out cold in the first round.
