Weekend in Fights! February 2nd Edition

This Weekend in Fights! (February 2nd, 2013) WIF FEB 2featured Bellator 87, the annual Superbowl weekend card with UFC 156, Legacy Fighting Championship 17,  and ONE FC 7.

Bellator 87 kicked of the weekend with the opening round of the season 8 Lightweight tournament at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. Eight men entered, four advanced. David Rickels outlasted and scored a gassed out Lloyd Woodard. Quebec’s Guillaume De Lorenzi was knocked in 31-seconds by last minute replacement Saad Awad after Patricky Freire pulled out of the tournament. Will Brooks out wrestled Ricardo Tirloni to advance with a unanimous decision, and Thiago Michel was submitted by Alexander Sarnavskiy with a rear-naked choke in the second round. (Full Bellator 87 event results below.)

On Friday night Legacy FC held their 17th event at  Cowboys Dancehall in San Antonio, Texas.The main event featured Bellator and Sengoku veteran Dan Hornbuckle versus UFC, TKO, veteran Pete Spratt. Hornbuckle would snap his two-fight losing skid with a unanimous decision over Spratt, who sees his two-fight win streak come to an end. Younger brother of Middleweight UFC veteran Jake Rosholt, Heavyweight Jared Rosholt bounced back from a knockout loss in his last fight. The 2010 NCAA Division I runner up picked up a unanimous decision over Richard Odoms. (Full Legacy FC 17 event results below.)

The weekend’s main attraction was UFC 156 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Every Superbowl weekend the UFC holds one of their biggest cards of the year, and they did not disappoint. In a “Superfight” UFC Featherweight champion squared off against former UFC Lightweight champion Frankie Edgar for the title. Champion Jose Aldo would walk away with a unanimous decision to retain his title in a five round war that should have crowned Edgar as champion. Unable to finish Aldo, Edgar was once again handed a loss due to the judges.

In the co-main event Antonio Rogerio Nogueira picked a huge win over Rashad Evans. Lil Nog scored a unanimous decision victory against a fighter who has “lost his smile” since losing to Jon Jones. Damien Maia continues to impress at Welterweight with his fourth straight victory and his biggest one in the division to date. Maia defeated longtime Welterweight kingpin Jon Fitch by unanimous decision.

In the biggest shocker of the night the returning Alistair Overeem was knocked out in the third round by Antonio Silva. No one gave Silva a chance going into this bout, and he had clearly lost rounds  one and two. Overeem appeared to be on his way to a unanimous decision victory, when Silva rushed at him in the opening one minute with a relentless combination of strikes. Against the cage Overeem had nowhere to run, and was dropped and finished at the 25-second mark. (Full UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar event results below.) 

Also on Saturday, ONE FC 7 took place at the Putra Indoor Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The main event featured the crowning of the inaugural ONE FC Featherweight  title; the bout was a reschedule one that should have taking place at ONE FC 6, but was cut due to  time constraints. Honorio Banario captured the title with a fourth round TKO due to an eye injury against Eric Kelly.

ONE FC kicked off the Malaysia National Featherweight championship tournament with two bouts in the opening round. Jian Kai Chee picked up a unanimous decision over A.J. Lias Mansor to advance, while Melvin Yoeh submitted Raymond Tiew in the second round with a triangle choke to advance. In the Bantamweight Grand Prix quarterfinal on the card Thanh Vu made quick work of last minute replacement Mohd Yeoh with a barrage of knees and punches to end the bout 63-seconds in. Vu now joins semifinalist’s Jens Pulver, Masakatsu Ueda, and Kevin Belingon. (Full ONE FC 7: Return of Warriors event results below.)

UFC 158 Card Update!

Only 70-days away from the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s return to ufc158-postersmallMontreal on March 16th, 2013 for UFC 158: GSP vs. Diaz. After the December 16th announcement of the main event of UFC Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (23-2 MMA, 17-2 UFC) defending his title for the eighth time versus former STRIKEFORCE Welterweight champion Nick Diaz (26-8-1 MMA, 7-5 UFC, 6-0 SF) was made official, the UFC has continued to stack this card.

Already announced, Rory MacDonald will receive a UFC 115 rematch against Carlos Condit, the title hungry Johny Hendricks will square off against Jake Ellenberger, and Patrick Cote will make his first drop to Welterweight to face STRIKEFORCE import Bobby Voelker.

The UFC has just added three more Canadian talent heavy bouts to the card with John Makdessi versus Daron Cruickshank, Chris Camozzi versus Nick Ring, and Jordan Mein versus Dan Miller.

After destroying the Canadian local scene, John “The Bull” Makdessi (10-2 Makdessi vs Cruickshank UFC 158MMA, 3-2 UFC) jumped into the UFC with two highlight reel performances going the distance with Pat Audinwood where he displayed his superb striking ability at UFC 124, and the famous spinning back fist knockout of Kyle Watson at UFC 129. Makdessi then suffered his first ever loss to Dennis Hallman at UFC 140 in an unfair bout as Hallman who was normally a Welterweight fighter dropped to Lightweight, but missed weight and came into the bout much larger than Makdessi. Clearly affected by his first loss, Makdessi loss his next bout to Anthony Njokuani at UFC 145. The Laval native then snapped his two-fight losing skid with a unanimous decision over Sam Stout at UFC 154. Since losing in the first episode of the Ultimate Fighter Live to James Vick via knockout, Daron Cruickshank (12-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) has gone undefeated in the UFC with a unanimous decision over Chris Tickle at The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale, and a highlight reel knockout of Henry Martinez at UFC on FOX 5. Prior to joining the UFC, Cruickshank defeated Makdessi’s training partner Mike Ricci  for the Ringside MMA Lightweight championship at Ringside 12 in October of 2011.  The two will square off in a strikers dream match in a “Tristar’s revenge” bout.

A Middleweight showcase between Chris Camozzi (18-5 MMA, 5-2 UFC) and  Camozzi vs RingNick Ring has been added to the card. During his stint of the Ultimate Fighter season 11, Camozzi was forced to withdraw from the competition after suffering a broken jaw in his preliminary bout victory against Victor O’Donnell to get into the house. Camozzi was granted to opportunity to fight on the finale where he picked up a unanimous decision over James Hammortree, then a split decision over Dongi Yang at UFC 121. He was then submitted by Kyle Noke at UFC 127 and subsequently released from the promotion. Camozzi picked a split decision victory outside of the UFC against Joey Villasenor at Shark Fights 15, which granted him another shot in the UFC. Upon his return Camozzi lost a unanimous decision to Francis Carmont at UFC 137, losing two of three rounds, as Camozzi had Carmont in danger late in the third round with a kimura submission. Camozzi bounced back from the loss as he is currently riding a three fight win streak with a guillotine submission over Dustin Jacoby at UFC on FOX 2, a TKO victory over Nick Cantone at UFC on FX 4, and a unanimous decision over Luiz Cane at UFC 153. His opponent Nick Ring (13-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) also an alumni of season 11 of the Ultimate Fighter and also forced to withdraw due to ACL injury after defeating the winner of season Court McGee in the quarterfinals by majority decision. Ring officially made his UFC debut at UFC 127 in February of 2011 with a controversial unanimous decision victory over DEEP Middleweight champion Riki Fukuda. Ring “won” the first two rounds granting him the judges nod, but the MMA community, including UFC President Dana White were baffled by the decision. Ring then ensured that there was no controversy in his next UFC victory, as he submitted at UFC 131. Ring was then handed his first career loss to Tim Boetsch at UFC 135. Ring bounced back from his loss, defeating Court McGee by unanimous decision in a TUF 11 rematch at UFC 149. Undefeated on Canadian soil with 11 victories the Calgary native will attempt to remain that way and derail Camozzi’s win streak.

STRIKEFORCE import Jordan Mein (26-8 MMA, 2-1 SF) will be making his UFCJordan Mein vs. Dan Miller debut at UFC 158. Mein lost his MMA debut in 2006 to Rory MacDonald at the age of 16. Now 23-years-old, Mein has fought 34 times, racking up victories over notable fighters such as, Evangelista Santos, Marius Zaromskis, Joe Riggs, Josh Burkman, and Forest Petz. Mein made his STRIKEFORCE debut in September of 2011 with a TKO victory over Evangelista Santos. Mein then squared off against the much larger Tyron Woodley in a title eliminator bout, where Woodley spent three rounds sitting on Mein, who worked diligently off his back, but would lose a split decision. Mein then won a unanimous decision over Tyler Stinson in January of 2012. With two STRIKEFORCE events being cancelled in a the later part of 2012, Mein returned to the local scene to remain active on November 23rd for the Score Fighting Series 7. He destroyed Forrest Petz in 99-seconds with elbows and knees. His opponent, Brother of Top 10 ranked Lightweight Jim Miller, Dan Miller (14-6-1 MMA, 6-5 UFC) won his first three UFC bouts against Rob Kimmons at UFC Fight Night 15, Matt Horwich at UFC 90, and Jake Rosholt at UFC Fight Night 17. Miller would then go on to lose three consecutive decision bouts against Chael Sonnen at UFC 98, Damian Maia at UFC 109, and Michael Bisping at UFC 114. Miller snapped the losing streak with a ninja choke submission of John Salter at UFC 118, and a split decision over Joe Doerksen at UFC 124. Miller stepped back up in competition losing decisions to Nate Marquardt at UFC 128, and Rousimar Palhares at UFC 134. With the losses Miller made the decision to drop to 170lbs and submitted Ricardo Funch with a guillotine choke at UFC on FX 4 in his Welterweight debut to earn the submission of the night honors. Miller will attempt to remain undefeated at Welterweight and spoil Mein’s UFC debut.

Sarah Kaufman (15-2 MMA, 6-2 SF) will appear on Wednesday’s (Jan. 9th) Kaufman vs Tate UFC 158episode of Ringside Report Radio on TSN 690 with Dave Simon and Kevin McKough to discuss her potential involvement of UFC 158. The former STRIKEFORCE Women’s Bantamweight champion Kaufman has expressed to RingsideReportDOTNET that she would be interested in a rematch against Miesha Tate (13-3 MMA, 6-2 SF). The two fought at the first STRIKEFORCE Challengers card in May of 2009, where Kaufman won a unanimous decision. Both fighters lost first round submissions to UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Tate losing the STRIKEFORCE title, and Kaufman attempting to regain it. Tate recently defeated Kaufman’s teammate Julie Kedzie with an armbar submission after being beat up for two rounds by Kedzie. Kaufman would like to avenge the loss by her teammate, and face Tate in a bout that has been brewing for some time now, as Kaufman and Tate both felt that Kaufman deserved the title shot over Rousey, when Tate was champion. With the UFC adding a Women’s Bantamweight division to the company, we at Ringside Report Radio/www.ringsidereport.net believe that Kaufman would make a great addition to the roster and should be added to the UFC 158 lineup. If you are interested in seeing Sarah Kaufman versus Miesha Tate at UFC 158 tweet “@mmasarah vs. @MieshaTate for #UFC158 #MakeItHappen” to @danawhite and @ufc.

Weekend in Fights! October 6th Edition

This Weekend in Fights! (October 6th, 2012) featured UFC on FX 5 in Minnesota, Bellator 75 in Indiana on Friday.  Invicta FC 3 in Kansas City, ONE FC 6 in Singapore, CES MMA in Rhode Island, Superior 8 in Sweden, Rumble in the Cage 46 in Alberta, Cage Fighting Alliance 8 in Florida, and King of the Cage in Oklahoma.

The UFC kicked off the weekend with UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot on Friday night from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the main event Antonio Silva picked up his first UFC victory and handed  Travis Browne his first career loss with a first round punch that sent Browne crumbling to the mat. Browne pulled his hamstring after throwing a kick, which may have affected his performance, nonetheless Silva displayed great striking. Jake Ellenberger and the returning Jay Hieron had a lackluster Welterweight bout that rendered Ellenberger the winner after three rounds. John Dodson became the number one contender for Demetrious Johnson’s UFC Flyweight title when he dropped the formally number one ranked Flyweight in the world Jussier Formiga in the second round. In the submission of the night Justin Edwards slapped a guillotine choke on Josh Neer during clinching. Neer attempted to fight it but was choked unconscious for his efforts 45-seconds into the bout. In two come from behind victories, both Michael Johnson and Mike Pierce won second round knockouts. After being dominated in the first round Johnson dropped Danny Castillo while Pierce dropped Aaron Simpson. (Full UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot event results below.)

Bellator 75 featured the opening round of the season 7 Heavyweight tournament to crown a new Heavyweight champion with the retirement of then champion Cole Konrad from  The Venue at Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana. In what was reminiscent of their first bout Eric Prindle got himself disqualified by kicking Thiago Santos in the groin when he found himself in trouble. With the kick Santos advanced into the semifinals. Russian striker Alexander Volkov picked apart Brett Rogers for three rounds to advance with a unanimous decision. Although a Light Heavyweight, Richard Hale was able to advance into the Heavyweight semifinals with a 79-second TKO of Mike Wessel. Vinicius Queiroz was the only quarter-finalist to socore a submission victory in the opening round with an arm bar mid way through the first round. (Full Bellator 75 event results below.)

ONE FC 6: Rise of Kings emanated from the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore on Saturday morning. The event featured the crowning of two champions in the Lightweight and Bantamweight divisions, as well as the opening round of their inaugural Bantamweight grand-prix. Kotetsu Boku won the ONE FC Lightweight title one minute into the third round with a TKO of  Zorobabel Moreira. It took 5:15 for Soo Chul Kim to become the first ONE FC Bantamweight title by knocking out Leandro Issa in the second round. Challengers on on the rise as Jens Pulver, Masakatsu Ueda, and Kevin Belingon punched their tickets into the semifinals of the ONC FC bantamweight-grand-prix opening round. Pulver defeated Yanfei Zhao via technical unanimous decision, Ueda defeated Min Jung Song by unanimous decision, and Belingon knocked out Yusup Saadulaevin the opening frame of their bout. Also featured on the card was the last DREAM Lightweight champion Shinya Aoki who in classic fashion submiited Arnaud Lepont with a triangle choke in 85 seconds. Melvin Manhoef also ended his bout in classic fashion with a first round knockout of Ryo Kawamura with 20-seconds remaining in the first round. (Full ONE FC 6: Rise of Kings event results below.)

Invicta FC held their third event at their home-base of the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas on Saturday night. The all-female promotion crowned their first champion in the Atomweight (105lbs) division, making them unique by being the first promotion to crown a champion in that weight class.

The former WWE World Heavyweight champion escaped an early assault to bounce back and end the bout before an other damage was done.  The card also featured former UFC fighter and title contender David Loiseau. The Tristar gym member picked up a first round doctor stoppage TKO over Chris McNally, making it two in a row for the Crow. UFC veteran John Howard also picked up a win on the card, with a second round TKO of Brett Chism. (Full CES MMA – Real Pain event results below.)
