In one of the more strange fights of the night, Sean Liddell, the brother of Chuck Liddell took a ton of punishment in his first MMA fight. Liddell, facing Chris Sanders was in a world of trouble in the first round. After exchanging blows, Liddell traded right hands with Sanders early in the fight, but the fight changed after Sanders landed a wild right hand that caught Liddell. Sanders continued an all out assault throwing wild left and right hands that landed and basically had Liddell knocked out on his feet. For some reason, referee Josh Rosenthal kept letting Liddell take punishment, giving Sean every chance to try and recover. The only problem, he was basically out fighting on instincts, trying to take Sanders down. Sanders after a couple minutes later of landing whatever, whenever he wanted starting to get tired.Basically for some reason instead of stopping the fight, they let it continue as Liddell was getting pummled but Sanders basically punched himself out. Liddell then got a takedown and he tried to mount a rally with a few shots, but didn't land much because the bell sounded. So as Liddell picked himself up from the mat, Sanders couldn't get up. He was so tired he had to be helped to his corner. When Liddell was ready to go for Round 2, Sanders couldn't answer the bell because he was gassed. So in a bizarre twist of events, after dominating the round and basically having Liddell out on his feet, Sanders could not continue because of exhaustion and Liddell, who found a way to survive and to his credit, would not tap out, ended up being your winner in a wild way to end the fight
