The career of former Ultimate Fighting Championship light heavyweight titleholder Chuck Liddell likely came to an end on Saturday night when Rich Franklin knocked him out with just seconds remaining in the first round. 

Liddell, who hadnt fought since being knocked out by Mauricio Rua at UFC 97, had been controlling the fight thru most of the first round when he got caught.  Liddell missed a shot and Franklin countered with a right hook on the chin that instantly KO'd the former champion.

In other bouts....

Marko "Cro Cop" Filipovic survived two knockdowns from Pat Barry before winning by submission in the 3rd round. 

Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit put on a show for the UFC faithful in Vancouver, trading shots throughout the 3 round fight.  Finally, with Condit landing alot of hard shots on MacDonald in the last round, the ref stopped the fight allowing Condit to get the win. 

Ben Rothwell won a unanimous decision over Gilbert Yvel while Martin Kampmann did the same over Paulo Thiago
