Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Held on November 19, 2005, in the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas, NV, the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) -- the premier mixed martial arts competition in the United States -- saw an array of stunning knockouts. This was the notorious event where Rich "The Ace" Franklin quashed Nate "The Rock" Quarry in a first-round K.O., Matt Hughes won by submission against Joe "Diesel" Riggs, Georges St. Pierre beat Sean "Muscle Shark" Sherk via T.K.O. at 2:53 in the second round, and Jeremy "Gumby" Horn tromped Trevor Prangley at the five-minute mark by unanimous decision in the third round. Other thrilling contests in this event included Kevin Jordan vs. Gabriel Gonzaga, Sam Hoger vs. Jeff Newton, Nick Thompson vs. Keith Wisniewski, and Thiago Alves vs. Ansar Chalangov. All of the fights are presented here back-to-back, without commercial interruption, in their original gut-wrenching glory. MMA fans will be hooked as they relive the action again and again.
