UFC 191 – Results: Mighty Mouse retains in dominant fashion

UFC 191 took place on September 6th from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The highlight of the prelims portion of the show was a crazy one round fight between John Lineker and Francisco Rivera which many described as a ‘Rock-em-Sock-em Robots’ free-for all. The two certainly left it all out there, swinging from the fences from the off and knocking each other down multiple times before Lineker sunk in a guillotine choke to finish the entertaining, yet short lived bout.

The main card away from the main event featured wins for VanZant, Anderson, Anthony Johnson and Arlovski. Anthony Johnson’s knock out of Jimi Manuwa was probably the pick of the fights, you are probably best of avoiding Mir vs Arlovski if you are watching the event back at a later time.

UFC 191 culminated with Demetrious Johnson vs. John Dodson II for flyweight title. Round 1 started at a furious pace with the round dictated by Johnson who piled the pressure on Dodson from the outset. Early in the second Dodson looked to be coming in to the fight, scoring a brief takedown before letting Johnson back to his feet. The rest of the round was pretty even, both exchanging strikes and continuing to work at a furious pace. In the third round the pace inevitably slowed. Johnson doing the majority of the good work landing multiple different strikes to the head of Dodson who had noticeably slowed down. Round four was a very one sided affair with Johnson attacking at will, cutting the angles and landing strikes with speed and accuracy. The fight culminated at the end of another dominant round by Demetrious Johnson – the result was never in doubt with Mighty Mouse confirmed the winner by Unanimous Decision.

Published

on

Polish women’s federation Ladies Fight Night is going to celebrate their second birthday this year on the 15th to 17th of December. Two days, two events with a lot of great bouts.

LFN in Poland is being titled the new Invicta FC. The Polish owners created this federation to give European women a chance to fight on a big platform.

Hosting their first ever event in December 2015, LFN will hold two great cards next week, that will feature women who have fought under many prestigious promotions, such as the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Glory, and Kunlun.

Two days of fantastic fights, intensified by a double dose of sports impressions. The name is not accidental, LFN 7 / LFN 8 combines two events, during which the best Polish fighters will be shown, as well as the best fighters from Europe (including France, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic and Romania)

The stakes are high, and we are electrified by the clashes between warriors such as Żaneta Cieśla vs Silvia La Notte and Patricia Axling vs. Cindy Silvestri. Mainly due to their vastness of their experience in the cage.

In the fight of the evening, the talented Romanian Cristina Stanciu will face Magdaléna Šormovádo. Stanciu fought twice in the UFC, but she was unfortunately cut from the promotion after suffering consecutive losses to Cortney Casey and Maryna Moroz.

Judyta Rymarzak vs Marta Waliczek is an amazing fight between two experienced kickboxers. Both making their pro MMA debuts on the night, we will witness a one-of-a-kind duel between two kickboxing perfectionists, as they look to transcend their skills into the MMA world.
