Alistair Overeem vs. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic was ruled a No Contest.
Filipovic sustained two illegal knees to the groin(albeit unintentional). Overeem was pretty much walking thru Cro Cop pretty easily before the fight was stopped. I think Cro Cop's career could be coming to a close. Hopefully Overeem gets to face Fedor in the near future as he was rumored to be fighting the winner of Overeem/CC.

Gegard Mousasi wins the 2008 DREAM Middleweight Grand Prix and becomes the first ever DREAM Middleweight Champion in a stunning upset. In a way this offset the Overeem/Cro Cop "No Contest".
