Lauzon stunned lightweight contender Melvin Guillard for UFC 136’s “Submission of the Night” after forcing “The Young Assassin” to tap to a rear naked choke just 47-seconds into the opening round to kick off the pay-per-view main card.

Phan and Garcia earned “Fight of the Night” for their back-and-forth rematch, as Phan outpointed Garcia in an exciting unanimous decision to avenge his controversial December loss that also earned FOTN honors.

UFC 136 drew a sellout crowd of 16,164 to the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas for a live gate of $2.3 million.
