Both Brazilians victorious in UFC 134 Spike TV prelims

Saturday, August 27, 2011

In a wild fight that got the crowd in Brazil going crazy, Rousimar Palhares beat Dan Miller on Saturday night at UFC 134, winning a decision in a fight he briefly believed he had won by first-round stoppage.

Palhares is a Brazilian jiu jitsu specialist, but his striking looked better than ever against Miller. In fact, in the first round he twice knocked Miller down with head kicks, and the second time, after he rained some punches down on a badly hurt Miller, he thought he had won the fight and got up and started celebrating before referee Herb Dean grabbed Palhares and told him the fight wasn’t over.
