by Michael David Smith | source:

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira delivered a one-sided beating to Tito Ortiz on Saturday night at UFC 140, pummeling him on the ground for most of the first round before the referee mercifully stepped in to stop it.

"I feel so great," Nogueira said afterward. "It's like a dream come true. Tito Ortiz is a legend of the sport. I want to say thanks for fighting him."

For Nogueira, the win snaps a two-fight losing streak and puts him back into the upper echelon of the light heavyweight division. It was a very impressive showing.

I started watching MMA in 2001 and never understood the Tito hype. The only ass whopping I have seen him give was over the hill Shamrock and Elvis Sinosick<br />Defiantly was good for hyping the sport but I just never saw him as that dominante<br />I felt bad for him tonight, time to go Tito

I suffered two broken ribs last summer by a dude with probably half the power of lil nog. Hurt like hell and took 6 months to fully recover. Tito tokk about 20 solid shots to the same area. I can only imagine the pain he must be in.

I am glad lil Nog won, but I still feel Tito still has it in him. Give Tito the Math teacher for his "last" fight.

Tito looked better early, but as soon as Nog touched him the fight was over. Yves could have jumped in as soon as Tito's back hit the mat and he wouldn't have complained, he looked ready to go.
