TERENCE CRAWFORD-YURI GAMBOA “POST MORTEM”

June 30th, 2014 By Pedro Fernandez

GAMBOA CAREER AN INDICTMENT OF 50 CENT

Photo Illustrates Size Difference

Photo Illustrates Size Difference


San Francisco, CA- There is nothing like a boxing match between two undefeated world class fighters and this past Saturday HBO offered up Terence Crawford-Yuri Gamboa in a WBO lightweight (135 lb.) affair emanating from Omaha, Nebraska. Crawford, the hometown hero had a better than 3-inch height advantage over Cuban national Gamboa.

WEIGH IN WAS “TELLING” IN MY MIND

Upon my gazing at the weigh in, I at once noticed the size advantage not only in height, but in body mass. When you look at Gamboa he had the smaller in the arms, chest, shoulders, Crawford (whose spectacular we’ll get to in a second) was at least one weight division, if not two weight classes bigger than Yuri Gamboa.

OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST NEVER BEFORE “UNDERDOG”

While the odds were on the side of Crawford, there were “wise guys” who thought Yuri was the better fighter and I know one that backed him with an envelope of cash. Never before in a fight, be it amateur or professional, was the Olympic Gold medalist ever an underdog.

TJ DILLASHAW WINS UFC CROWN STOPPING RENAN BARAO

May 25th, 2014 By Zak Attack

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

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

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.

UFC ON FOX 11 NOTES

April 24th, 2014 By Zak Attack

UFC Heavyweight Champ Cain Velasquez

UFC Heavyweight Champ Cain Velasquez

TRAVIS BROWN “GASSED” EARLY IN CAREER CHANGER

Los Angeles, CA- Fabricio Werdum (18-5-1) became the next heavyweight (265 lb. limit) title challenger with a dominant 5-round decision win over Travis Browne (16-2-1) in the main event of UFC on Fox 11. Browne started the bout well but seemed to exhaust himself very quickly and was beaten to the punch continuously by the Brazilian. Werdum will fight champion Cain Velasquez (13-1) in Mexico for his next fight. I think Cain will once again show how wide the gap is between him and the rest of the division.

TATE EMERGES VICTOR OVER CARMOUCHE

Meisha Tate (14-5) proved to be the gourmet Ronda Rousey (9-0) leftover dish with a close UD 3 win against fellow Rousey victim Liz Carmouche (9-5). With how thin the bantamweight (135) division is, Tate may get yet another opportunity to get her arm broken by the rowdy one.

CERRONE PREVAILS IN “FIGHT OF NIGHT”

Lightweight (155) Donald Cerrone (23-6-0-1) got an exciting submission win over Edson Barboza (13-2) at 3:15 of the first round. Cerrone was wobbled himself in the fight, but persevered to drop and subsequently choke out Barboza, who is a bit chinny.
