Belfort (24-10) needed just 77 seconds to down Henderson in the headlining bout of Saturdays "UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs. Henderson" event at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil. The fight served as a rematch of the pairs 2006 meeting, which Henderson won by decision. DETROIT -- The Tennessee Titans are already a third of the way to last seasons victory total, thanks to Marcus Mariotas poise in the fourth quarter against Detroit.Mariotas 9-for-9 performance on the winning drive Sunday was an encouraging step for the second-year quarterback, who is trying to help the Titans improve on a three-win season in 2015.Mariotas 9-yard touchdown pass to Andre Johnson with 1:13 left lifted Tennessee to a 16-15 win over the Lions.The winning TD came on fourth down.I just think we learned some lessons about ourselves, Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey said. They finished a game and they did it on the road. A lot of circumstances were tough at the end there and I was really proud.Mariota competed every pass he attempted during a 13-play, 83-yard drive for the winning points. The Lions, meanwhile, wasted a nice opportunity a week before playing at Green Bay.Detroit (1-1) was coming off a season-opening win at Indianapolis, but the Lions blew a 15-3 lead in the fourth quarter Sunday.They also committed 17 penalties for 138 yards. Tennessee was flagged 12 times in a sloppy, disjointed game .We need to stop with the infractions, plain and simple, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. Thats my job. Ill get those guys straightened out in that area.Tennessee (1-1) returns home for what figures to be a winnable game next weekend against Oakland. The Titans also have Cleveland and Miami on the schedule next month.Of course, fans of those teams probably look at Tennessee much the same way -- as a chance to pick up a win. The Titans were far from perfect Sunday, and they could have been blown out if it werent for Detroits penalties and mistakes.We needed something, Mularkey said. We were really chugging, but we werent gelling like we needed to until those last couple drives that we needed.VETERAN PRAISEEJohnsons touchdown at the end was his only catch of the game. Adida NMD R1 Ireland. The 35-year-old receiver has four receptions on the season, and he likes what hes seeing from Mariota, who was dealing with cramping during the second half.It doesnt surprise me what he was able to do during that drive, Johnson said. Hes a very tough player, and I knew that he wasnt going to just come out of that game just because he was cramping. He had a great performance.NEW ADDITONSThe Lions wasted opportunities for more points, but theyre getting good production from new acquisitions Marvin Jones and Anquan Boldin. Jones had eight catches for 118 yards Sunday, and Boldin had four receptions for 48 yards, including a 24-yard touchdown.If those two can keep that up, Detroits passing game should be in solid shape even after losing Calvin Johnson to retirement.DOUBLE THREATTennessees DeMarco Murray had 89 yards on only 12 rushing attempts. If you take out a 67-yard run, thats not a great average, but he also added a team-high seven catches for 56 yards.STEP BACKAmeer Abdullah and Theo Riddick were impressive in the season opener for the Lions, raising the possibility that Detroits running game could be much improved this season.Sunday wasnt as good a showing. Abdullah had 38 yards on six carries, but left late in the second quarter with a foot injury. Riddick was held to 37 yards on 11 carries.Tennessees got a really good defense, did a nice job of being physical, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said.But we had a bunch of yards and a bunch of points taken off the board from penalties and mistakes on our end.
