Posted on October 30, 2011 by John Petit
UFC 137 took place on Saturday Night in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay. Although the card suffered a hit with Georges St. Pierre being injured and out of the main event, UFC 137 turned out to be a solid night of fights. NIck Diaz returned to the UFC with a fantastic win over BJ Penn by unanimous decision. After the bout Nick Diaz called out Georges St. Pierre, but the story of the night is the possible retirement of BJ Penn.
In the co-main event, Cheick Kongo edged out a decision win over Matt Mitrione. Mitrione seemed to win the first round on my card, but it was Kongo who won the final two to walk away with the in.
Mirko Cro Cop lost to Roy Nelson via TKO, and after the fight he also spoke of retirement, and it will most likely be the last time you see him in the Octagon. If this is the case, then we could have seen two legends of mixed martial arts retire in one night. Below are the full results for the full card.
