Recap: UFC Fight Night
Recap: UFC Fight Night
There are few more devoted fans of the UFC and MMA than my cousin Scott, who backburned the Cavs/Spurs game to commercial clicks in favor of UFC Fight Night on Spike Tuesday night, which had a very solid card. In his recap of the event, he gives us the blow by blow on the headline matchups, all of which lived up to their hype. And don't forget ... UFC 72 on pay per view this Saturday.
Tonight was a very tough night for me as I had a serious dilemma on my hands. Do I watch my beloved Cavs try to make a series out of the NBA Finals or do I watch the best sport in the world???
It turned out to be a great decision as I tuned into UFC Fight Night. What an exciting fight card once again.
The main event was a rematch of a 2006 fight of the year canidate. Spencer Fisher was looking to avenge his loss against Sam Stout.
The second installment did nothing to let down the crowd at the Seminole Hard Rock in Florida. These two young fighters went toe to toe for three full rounds of action packed mixed martial arts. It was more of a kick-boxing match as the fight never once went to the ground. Excellent counter punching and body kicks by both guys kept me on the edge of my seat for all fifteen minutes.
Spencer Fisher pulled out a hard fought unanimous decision winning 30-27 on all three scorecards. He cleary landed the crisper and harder punches and kicks. Stout has nothing to be ashamed of as he fought an overall solid fight, he just got beat by a better fighter tonight. Do I hear rubber match? I would think so ... as the crowd was electric.
The undercard had many highlights as well.
I think we saw a future champion in the Lightweight Division. Thiago Tavares dominated a very well rounded fighter in Jason Black. He ended the clinic with a triangle choke in the second round. Tavares showed he will be a force for a long time with a superb all around game. I am expecting huge things from him in the very near future.
Even though Independence Day is a month away, there was a fireworks display early on.
Drew McFedries knocked out Jordan Radev in impressive fashion and it only took thirty-three seconds. It was like a bolt of lighting and it made the fans rumble with excitement.
Anthony Johnson was not to be outdone with his spectacular beating of Chad Reiner, finishing it off in a ultra fast thirteen seconds.

WW: Anthony Johnson def. Chad Reiner via KO (Round 1, 0:13)
LW: Nate Mohr def. Luke Caudillo via unanimous decision
I really thought I might have made a wrong move when I picked the UFC over my Cavs tonight. It turned out great for me as I wasn't let down by the fastest growing sport in the world.
It was another fantastic evening of entertainment put on by SpikeTV and the UFC. The best part about it, there are two more events coming up in the next eleven days.
I will be there looking on and expect more of the same. If you haven't caught on yet, you're missing out.
