UFC Live on Versus 4 Results & Leftovers

With Nate Marquardt scratched from the card, it looked like 'UFC on Versus 4' was on shaky ground for a moment. However, some surprises from Charlie Brenneman and Cheick Kongo put the icing on an excellent night of fights. Matt Mitrione TKO'd Christian Morecraft to stay perfect at 5-0 in Octagon appearances. Then Matt Brown routed a much needed decision over John Howard. Charlie Brenneman brought Rick Story's Cinderella story to an end with a unanimous decision. And finally, in the main event, Cheick Kongo came back from two rocking punches, wobbling to his feet to catch Pat Barry clean on the chin. Cheick Kongo is a sure early nomination for "comeback of the year" award.
