How do we pick just three stars from Saturday night's Ultimate Fight Night 26? The UFC was hoping to make a mark on Fox's new network, Fox Sports 1. They did just that. Here are the biggest stars from a bright and shiny night.

No. 1 star -- Matt Brown: Imagine you're a UFC fighter. Matchmaker Joe Silva's name comes up on your phone, and you pick it up happily. "Joe, what fight do you have for me?" If he answers, "Matt Brown," your happiness would disappear instantly. Brown is currently fighting like he has no time to waste on game plans and decisions. He is on a six-fight winning streak, with the last five coming by knockout. His last two fights totaled 1:29 of action, and now he wants a title shot.

No. 2 star -- Travis Browne: Browne withstood an early onslaught from Alistair Overeem, including an unpenalized illegal knee. He then came back to take advantage of Overeem coming forward with his face exposed. Browne used a front kick to get a first-round knockout win. This is Browne's second straight win, both by knockout.

No. 3 star -- Chael Sonnen: Apparently, Sonnen is more comfortable at light heavyweight than he showed in his fight with Jon Jones. Sonne beat Mauricio "Shogun" Rua with a guillotine. It was the first time Rua lost by submission since his 2007 loss to Forrest Griffin.
