Great win for Fedor. Rogers busted him up good in the first but like usual he fought through it and scored a TKO in the second. Whether it’s Randleman, Fujita or Rogers, the man is simply the best at fighting through adversity.
This was another decent WEC show, especially the main event between Donald Cerrone and Benson Henderson. These two battled back and forth for five rounds in an action packed bout that could have gone either way. In the end the judges gave Henderson the nod 48-47 on all three cards. Fight Report had it 48-47 for Cerrone.
In one of the undercard bouts, Scott Jorgensen TKOd Noah Thomas with elbows and punches from the top. One strike towards the end of the sequence drew blood which prompted referee Mark Calo-oy to stop the bout. Thomas lay on the canvas wincing as blood streamed down his face. Official time was 3:13.
There was a scary, ‘Matua-like’ KO over the weekend, and no I’m not talking about the massive hit Washington Huskies receiver D’Andre Goodwin absorbed at the end of the Notre Dame game. I’m talking about Joe Muir knocking out Amanaki Havili with a huge overhand right at an event called Underground MMA #1 in Australia.
The entire fight lasted six seconds. Havili threw a low kick, and Muir countered with an overhand right that knocked him cold. As he lay on his back, Muir dropped two more bombs to the chin that sent the KOd fighter into convulsions. Later in the video Havili is seen sitting upright so it appears as if he will make a full recovery from this frightening knockout. [flv:http://www.fightreport.net/flash/muir_havili.FLV 480 368]
There was a short feeling out process but once the beating finally commenced Vitor was extremely effective and efficient. The only thing missing from the beating was a white tank top and a beer belly.
Rich was basically out after a sweeping left hook left him on all fives. Belfort bounced three more blows off the back and sides of his head to ensure his dominance. Official time the beating was stopped: 3:02 of round one.
Mirko endured a longer beating but in the end he succumbed to the younger, stronger Junior dos Santos. Multiple knees to the face busted CroCop up pretty good and then a short, right uppercut to the eye caused him to verbally submit. Official time was 2:00 of round three.
Up next: Franklin’s beating.
Might as well have given Josh a golf club with the way he teed off on Trigg. After flooring a flat-footed Frank with a punch directly to the face, Koscheck teed him up with his left and battered him with his right. Official time of the stoppage was 1:25 of round one.
Up next: CroCop’s beating.
Did Franca deserve that beating for dressing up like a purple Norfin? No. This is the man who dispatched Manny Reyes Jr. He can dress up like a troll whenever he wants.
Up next: Trigg’s Beating
