The UFC had one of it's most entertaining headlining matches in recent history last night, and it didn't cost $50 bucks to see it.
Cheick Kongo and Pat Barry were the main event at UFC Live 4, held at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. It was shown on basic cable via the Versus channel.
There was no reason to expect what may end up being the fight of the year going in. Although both are decent fighters, neither one had the one big win on their resume' that would catapult them into title consideration.
The fight wasn't even initially scheduled as the main even. Nate Marquardt failed his pre-fight medicals and was subsequently dropped from the card and from the UFC.
That left the door open for Kongo vs. Barry.
Check out the exciting fight with a dramatic ending below.
