Evans takes lackluster main event in Newark

Newark, NJ (The Phanatic Magazine) - Rashad Evans outwrestled England's Michael Bisping to win a split decision in the lackluster main event of UFC 78 "Validation" at the Prudential Center on Saturday.

Evans (16-0-1) used his superior ground skills to take down Bisping (15-1) at will, although the Englishman seemed comfortable in the guard.

Evans won 29-28 on two of the three scorecards. The Phanatic Magazine also had Evans winning 29-28.

"I have to credit Michael Bisping. He fought a great fight. My hat's off to him," Evans said.

Evans won Season 2 of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality TV show while Bisping was on top in Season 3 but neither looked ready for the main event status thrust upon them. More >>
