Weekend in Fights! September 29th Edition

This Weekend in Fights! (September 29th, 2012) featured the opening round of Bellator season 7 Welterweight tournament at Bellator 74 in Atlantic City. UFC on FUEL TV 5 in Nottingham, England. XFO 20 from Knoxville, Tennessee, Shoot 10th Round in Tokyo, Japan, and M-1 Challenge 34 in Moscow, Russia. STRIKEFORCE Melendez vs. Healy was slated for Saturday night but do to STRIKEFORCE Lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez pulling out of the fight, the entire event was scrapped.

Bellator 74 kicked off the weekend from the Caesars Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Friday night, with the event broadcast on MTV 2 and Spike.com. The event featured the opening round of Bellator season 7 Welterweight tournament. Lyman Good, Marius Zaromskis, Michail Tsarev, and  Andrey Koreshkov all advance into the in the semifinals with victories. Only Michail Tsarev didn’t leave his bout in the hands of the judges as he submitted Tim Welch with a rear-naked choke two minutes into the second round. All the other tournament bouts ended via unanimous decision as Lyman Good defeated Jim Wallhead, Marius Zaromskis defeated Nordine Taleb, and Andrey Koreshkov defeated Jordan Smith.

Also on the card, both Phillipe Nover and Alexandre “Popo” Bezerra  won their bouts with rear-naked chokes submission at 3:04 of the first round. Nover choked Derrick Kennington out cold, winning a technical submission. While Bezerra forced Matt McCook to tap out. In a last minute women’s MMA bout

Michelle Ould easily pikced up a unanimous decision over  Munah Holland by taking her to the ground and pounding her out. Holland had an active guard, but didn’t attempt to stand up where she is most dangerous. Although she had submission attempts and strikes from her back, the judges saw her on her back therefore awarded Ould the bout. (Full Bellator 74 event results below.)

Also on Friday night was XFC 20 from the Knoxville Civic Auditorium and Coliseum in Knoxville, Tennessee, with the event broadcast on AXS TV. XFC Lightweight champion Eric Reynolds had a successful title defense with a second guillotine submission over  Lorenzo Borgomeo. In the co-main event of the evening Scott Holtzman picked up a TKO victory over Chris Coggins with 15-seconds remaining in the first round. (Full XFC 20: High Octane event results below.)

Saturday night featured multiple events, but none greater than UFC on FUEL TV 5 at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England. The card featured many U.K. and European fighters. The event was headlined with a Heavyweight clash between “The Huge Dude” Stefan Struve and undefeated knockout artist Stipe Miocic. Miocic may be a knockout artist, however it was the golden gloves boxer who was knocked out by Struve in the second round. Both heavyweights were connecting a series of power shots, but after what appeared to be an eye poke, Struve connected with a series of rights and uppercuts knocking Miocic out on his feet. With the victory Struve is now riding a 4-fight win streak, while Miocic drops his first pro fight in his career in the “Fight of the Night.”

In the co-main event of the evening Nottingham’s own Dan Hardy smashed  Amir Sadollah for three rounds. Hardy displayed an improvement in his wrestling taking down Sadollah with ease. Hardy busted Sadollah’s face up with elbows from the mount position.

Bad weekend all around for Tristar, as Tom Watson’s UFC debut was spoiled by Brad Tavares who squeaked out split decision. Yves Jabouin was knocked out by Brad Pickett with a devistating uppercut that dropped him. Pickett follwoed up with a few unnecessary shots to confirm his victory and claim the “Knockout of the Night” bonus.

In the “Submission of the Night”  Matt Wiman submitted submission specialist Paul Sass at his own game by taking him to the ground and slapping on an arm bar in the first round, handing Sass his first ever career loss.

Two impressive UFC debuts included Jimi Manuwa total destruction of Kyle Kingsbury and Gunnar Nelson submission of DaMarques Johnson. Manuwa connected with a series of punches, knees and kicks that shut Kingsbury’s eye forcing the judges to end the bout after the second round. Nelson connected with a head kick early in the round and brought the fight to the ground against the out of shape Johnson to finish it with a rear-naked choke. (Full UFC on FUEL TV 5 event results below.)

This long weekend of fights continued with two events on Sunday. Shooto (Japan) 10th Round emanated from the famous Korakuen Hall, in Tokyo, Japan. In the main event Mikihito Yamagami choked out Junji Ito with a rear-naked choke in the second round. UFC & DREAM veteran Caol Uno was in action. Uno loss a unanimous decision to Shintaro Ishiwatari. With this loss Uno drops two in a row, and is 2-7-1 in his last 10 outings. (Full Shooto – 10th Round event results below.)
