JOSE ALDO & UFC 179 RESULTS

October 31st, 2014 By Zak "Attack" Young

UFC 179 MAIN EVENT A THRILLER

Jose "Scarface" Aldo

Jose “Scarface” Aldo

Los Angeles, CA- The rematch between UFC featherweight (145) champ Jose Aldo and Chad “Money” Mendez (16-2) was much more competitive the first, which ended in a first round knee-to-the-face knockout of Mendez by Aldo.  This one went the full five rounds.  Mendez managed to drop Jose in the first round, but was also dropped twice himself in the same stanza.  The second knockdown Mendez suffered was just after the bell, which is a bit of a gray area.  Still, it looked as though Aldo won the first round, the next two, and maybe gave up the last two to Mendez.  In the end, it was the 18th straight win for the Brazilian.  I personally scored it 49-46 for Aldo, which was the same as all three judges.

CO-MAIN EVENT MORE OF A SNOOZER 

The co-main was essentially a wrestling exhibition for light heavyweight contender Phil Davis (13-2, 1 NC), who repeatedly took down Glover Teixeira (22-4) en route to a unanimous decision win.  It was far from entertaining, and I give Phil Davis absolutely no chance of beating champion Jon Jones (20-1).  He deserves a title shot, but he would be thoroughly outclassed in every aspect of fighting by Jones.

THE NIGHT “ALI THE FIGHTER” DIED IN VEGAS

October 2nd, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

10/2/1980 FIGHT A RING DEATH TO MANY

Ali Training For Larry Holmes

Muhammad Ali Training For Larry Holmes

San Francisco, CA- The overweight man you see with a mustache here is Muhammad Ali in the late summer of 1980. After a two year hiatus from boxing, this after besting Leon Spinks in a 1978 rematch, promoter Don King (only eight years into promoting) convinced Muhammad to come back and fight unbeaten World heavyweight champion Larry Holmes on October 2, 1980, 34 years ago today. Actually, Ali didn’t need much convincing as DK was offering him $8 million reasons to fight again.

CHAMPION WAS SECOND FIDDLE HERE

A former sparring partner of Ali, Larry can be seen beating Ali up in a Deer Lake, PA training session in the movie, “Ali: Brains, Skill, & Guts,” taped in 1974 as Ali prepped for his “Rumble in The Jungle” with George Foreman. Holmes, AKA “The Easton Assassin” was 31 years young and 35-0, 26 KOs.

TJ DILLASHAW WINS UFC CROWN STOPPING RENAN BARAO

May 25th, 2014 By Zak "Attack" Young

ANOTHER BRAZILIAN MMA LEGEND SLAIN BY YANKEE

TJ Dillashaw Sets Tone Early

TJ Dillashaw Sets Tone Early


Las Vegas, NV- In a shocking upset, a vastly improved T.J. Dillashaw (11-2) put a beating on bantamweight (135) champion Renan Barao (32-2) before dropping him and finishing him off in the 5th round. The new champ set the tone for the evening when he drilled the Brazilian into the canvas with a single right hand.

BOXING KEY TO VICTORY

Although the Team Alpha Male member fighting out of Sacramento, CA mixed in some takedowns here and there, it was Dillashaw’s superior boxing and footwork that allowed him to pull off a bigger upset than Chris Weidman did in beating Anderson Silva the first time last year. Barao was heavily favored going in but was thoroughly dominated by the new titleholder who was ranked #9.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT SEES BROWN BEST SILVA

May 11th, 2014 By Zak "Attack" Young

UFC FIGHT NIGHT ON FOX WAS SOLID!

UFC Czar Dana White

UFC Czar Dana White


Los Angeles, CA- In the main event of UFC Fight Night: Brown vs. Silva from the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, OH, welterweight (170 lbs.) Matt Brown (19-11) continued his recent string of knockouts with a TKO over Erick Silva (16-5-0-1) at 2:11 of round three. It was a pretty dominant performance from Brown, who was able to stifle the offense of the explosive Silva throughout. This win moves Brown closer to the crack at the title in a very loaded welterweight division. Silva, who is now 4-4 in the UFC, may be forced to continue his career in another organization.

SEMI-MAIN EVENT ENDS EARLY AS WELL!

In the co-feature, middleweight (185) Costas Phillippou (13-4-1) knocked out Lorenz Larkin (14-3-1) just 3:37 seconds into the very first round. Both men landed some nice shots, but in the end, Phillippou was able to drop Larkin with a hard left hook that sealed the deal. I thought Larkin might just be good enough to best Costas who appeared to be on the way down, but Phillippou proved he has fight left in him.

UFC 172 POST FIGHT, DRUGS, TUF ON SPIKE TV TONIGHT

April 30th, 2014 By Zak "Attack" Young

JONES’ “EYE POKES” PISSING DANA WHITE OFF

Jon "Bones" Jones

Jon “Bones” Jones


Los Angeles, CA- UFC light heavyweight (205 lb.) champion Jon Jones (20-1) made easy work of contender Glover Teixeira (22-3) over 5 rounds to retain his belt. Teixeira was never really all that competitive, but did manage to last the distance. Jones controlled the fight but looked a bit gun shy at times and seemed hesitant to take risks.

JONES STILL “SMARTING” FROM GUSTAFSON CLASH?

The much heralded champion took a lot of damage in his fight with Alexander Gustafsson (16-2), and Glover certainly has power, so the combination of the two may have made Jones more tentative than “Bones” Jones is normally. Still, “Double J” was able to get the job done and remains the longest reigning champion in UFC light heavyweight history. The post fight discussion included Dana White acknowledging the fact that Jones’ pokes (fouls) opponents in the eyes with his long fingers.

RETURNING JOHNSON “RUMBLES” TO WIN

In the co-main event, light heavyweight Anthony “Rumble” Johnson (17-4) made a successful return to the UFC by taking a decision from the over the hill and passive Phil Davis (12-2-0-1). It was Johnson’s first fight in the UFC since January 2012.

EX-STRIKEFORCE KING CONTINUES TO IMPRESS

Middleweight (185) Luke Rockhold (12-2) notched an impressive submission win over veteran gatekeeper Tim Boetsch (17-7) at 2:08 of the opening round. Lightweight (155) Jim Miller (24-4-0-1) also got a first round submission after 3 minutes and 18 seconds versus Yancy Medeiros (9-2-0-1). In the opening bout of the main card, featherweight (145) Max Holloway (9-3) submitted Andre Fili (13-2) at 3:39 of round number 3.

SCORES MAR UFC 171 HENDRICKS-LAWLER MAIN EVENT

March 15th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

Johny Hendricks-Robbie Lawler

Johny Hendricks-Robbie Lawler

JOHNNY HENDRICKS GETS UNDESERVED WIN AT HOME

San Francisco, CA- At UFC 167, Johnny Hendricks was shorted by three judges who gave legendary UFC welterweight (170 lb.) champ Georges St. Pierre a Unanimous Decision after Hendicks seemingly won 4 of the 5 rounds. Last night in Dallas, TX, the hometown for Hendricks, Robbie Lawler got the short end of a unanimous decision with three scores of 48-47 (3-2 rounds). The way I saw it, Lawler certainly won 3, if not 4 rounds against Hendricks. Using a size and reach advantage, Lawler out punched Hendricks for the first 20 minutes. The only round Hendricks won clearly was the last. Truly an MMA heist, at least in my eyes on the scorecards.

HECTOR LOMBARD GETS BY JAKE SHIELDS

Former Bellator middleweight (185) titleholder Hector Lombard, now a welter (170) took a UD 3 over game Jake Shields. Lombard gassed in the 2nd round and Shields tried to turn the judges his way but came up shy on the cards 30-27 twice & 29-28.

LYOTO MACHIDA IS THE DRAGON OF UFC

February 24th, 2014 By Zak "Attack" Young

MACHIDA A HUGE THREAT TO CHRIS WEIDMAN?

Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida

Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida


Los Angeles, CA- In the main event of UFC Fight Night 36 from Brazil last week, Brazilian middleweight (185 lb.) contender Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida (21-4, 13-4 UFC) likely secured his spot for the next shot at the belt with a convincing win over the very talented Gegard Mousasi (34-4-2, 1-1 UFC). Mousasi was game throughout but simply fought a better man.

“THE DRAGON” WAS BREATHING FIRE!

Machida showcased his full mixed martial arts arsenal, landing kicks, punches, elbows, takedowns, and getting the former Strikeforce champion in some very compromising situations on the ground. Overall, this was a very impressive performance form Machida, in what was deservedly the fight of the night. It was a tactical battle that answered all questions about Lyoto’s legitimacy as a middleweight contender. He is here to give champion Chris Weidman (11-0, 7-0 UFC) a serious run for his money.

SEMI MAIN EVENT WAS A SNOOZER!

In the co-main event, fellow Brazilian middleweight Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (20-3-0-1, 3-0 UFC) got the decision nod over Francis Carmont (22-8, 6-1 UFC) in a fairly mediocre fight. Carmont exposed some serious holes in Souza’s striking game that have me thinking he does not beat the best of the best. I expected Carmont to be the one pushing for grappling, but he was the one engaging on the feet while Souza was concerned with taking the fight to the ground.
