UFC 92 left Forrest Griffin looking for answers, Frank Mir looking for ways to slip "interim" off his new title, and Wanderlei Silva looking for hints about who the President is.

Forrest Griffin dominated the first two rounds of the light heavyweight bout last night in Vegas, but Rashad Evans finally got Griffin to the ground in the third and pounded Griffin into submission, taking the light heavyweight belt and "most successful The Ultimate Fighter contestant" title in the waning days of 2008. This loosens up the light heavyweight division more than Griffin's guard in the third, making any number of fight combinations possible in 2009.


One of those potential opponents is Quinton Jackson, who showed Wanderlei Silva Mr. Happy Sleepy Time Fist in the first round. Jackson's British training over and the fight almost anticlimatic, Quinton now turns to his auto-based legal problems and personally-questioned mental acuity.

In the interim heavyweight division, interim heavyweight Frank Mir TKOed Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the second round, allowing the final legal resolution between the interim heavyweight and heavyweight divisions next year as Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir will meet in the Next Big Fight. (Note: there may not be an interim heavyweight division. Then again, we're not sure Brock Lesnar is real, either. No one can be that big and quick; he's got to be CGI.)
