LAS VEGAS, Feb. 2 -- Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira made history Saturday inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center by becoming the first mixed martial artist to become a champion in both the UFC and PRIDE heavyweight divisions.

"Minotauro" weathered an early scare from the large Tim Sylvia and wound up submitting the former two-time UFC heavyweight champion with a textbook guillotine choke early in the third round in front of 10,583 fans.

it seems like everyone starts out beating nogs ass, and then he always pulls out the victory. sylvia caught him, i thought for sure it was over after he took that chin shot. you could def tell sylvia wanted to stay standing would have been a (wise decision).
