Well, another UFC event is in the books and we had another huge upset last night, this one in the main event. This has been the trend as of late and it gives fight fans everything they want. Crowds love to see upsets in all sports, and mixed martial arts in no different. My cousin Scott was watching, and delivers the recap of last night's UFC 70 for us.
Another UFC event is in the books and we had another huge upset. This has been the trend as of late and it gives fight fans everything they want. Crowds love to see upsets in all sports, and mixed martial arts in no different.
Georges St. Pierre started the string of upsets at UFC 65 when he destroyed Matt Hughes. He then found himself on the other side when he was shocked by Matt Serra earlier this month at UFC 69. Randy Couture was a 3-1 underdog going into his Heavyweight Title fight with Tim Slyvia. Couture got the W in impressive fashion.
Last night at UFC 70 we saw another main event that didn't go according to plan. Heavyweight superstar Mirko Cro Cop was supposed to walk thru Gabriel Gonzaga and be next in line for Couture's title. The only thing about that was, Gonzaga didn't get that memo.
Gabriel Gonzaga was the one who landed the knockout kick fight fans are used to seeing from Cro Cop. It was a perfect strike that came in the first round.
Gonzaga was able to get Cro Cop down to the ground where he would have the advantage. He wasn't able to generate much offense so referee Herb Dean stood them back up. Most people who have seen Mirko fight in the past figured he was just getting warmed up and being back on his feet was just what the doctor ordered. The lights then just knocked out. Gonzaga landed a beautiful high leg kicked that ended the night and got him the number one contender spot in the Heavyweight division.
The televised portion of the undercard was not very impressive.
Andre Arlovski got the win versus Fabricio Werdum in a snoozer. It was a unanimous decision that he deserved but not a whole lot of action in this one. He was able to land some decent shots as Werdum was unable to get him down or land much of anything.
England's own Michael Bisping continued his winning ways and kept his undefeated record alive in a beatdown of Elvis Sinosic. The fight was stopped in the 2nd round by the ref because Elvis's defense left the octagon and he had no answer for Bisping's offense.
Full fight results:
-Gabriel Gonzaga def. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic by KO (head kick) at 4:51 of Round 1
-Andrei Arlovski def. Fabricio Werdum by unanimous decision
-Michael Bisping def. Elvis Sinosic by TKO (referee stoppage due to strikes) at 1:20 of Round 2

-Jess Liaudin def. Dennis Siver by submission (armbar) at 1:21 of Round 1
-Paul Taylor def. Edilberto Crocota by TKO (referee stoppage due to strikes) at 0:37 of Round 3
Another UFC event in the books, another shocking upset. UFC 71 is next month and what will happen then?
