UFC Fight Night Florida – MMALatest Post Fight Bonuses

Published

on

UFC Fight Night Machida vs. Romero went on as scheduled on July 27th even with three bouts being cancelled due to visa issues. This left nine fights on the card, five of which ended with a stoppage. The only submission of the night saw Antonio Carlos Junior submit Eddie Gordon in the third round via rear-naked choke. There was one obvious choice for our KO of the night, and two well deserved performance of the night winners.

Knockout of the Night: Thiago Santos vs. Steve Bosse

Tonight was the highly anticipated octagon debut of Steve Bosse. Thiago Santos ensured that the debut would not make it out of the first thirty seconds. After feeling each other out early, Thiago Santos faked a leg kick low, and switched up high and caught Bosse flush on the chin. Bosse crumpled immediately and there were no additional strikes needed as Bosse was stiff on the ground. It was one of the most brutal KO’s seen in the UFC this year, but luckily Bosse suffered no damage and was released later from the hospital with only a 90-day no contact suspension. 

Performance of the Night: Lorenz Larkin vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio

After losing three fights straight in the Middleweight division, Lorenz Larkin needed to make a career saving decision. This past January Larkin decided he was going to make the move down to the Welterweight division; and he has since been back to his winning ways. Larkin is now 2-0 in the Welterweight division and was able earn the TKO victory against Ponzinibbio who had a record of 20 wins and 2 losses. “The Monsoon” Larkin controlled the majority of the fight, landing leg kicks at will. After connecting with a left hook, over-hand right combo that dropped Ponzinibbio to the canvas, Larkin was able to finish the fight via Ground and Pound at 3:07 left in the 2nd round. “The Monsoon” is back and proving that he is a contender to the Welterweight division. Not to mention, he did beat the current champ Robbie Lawler back in their Strikeforce days.

Performance of the Night: Yoel Romero vs. Lyoto Machida

Yoel Romero proved tonight that he is a serious contender in the Middleweight division by stopping “The Dragon” in the third round of the main event. For the first round Romero and Machida felt each other out, as typical in a five round fight. Machida snapped off some kicks and some flurries, as did Romero. At the start of round two however; it appeared that Romero had his timing down as he was out striking Machida on the feet. At this point in the fight the Olympic Silver Medalist wrestler for Cuba had not attempted any takedowns. In the third round, the two clinched, and Romero prevailed with his strength of wrestling and was able to trip Machida, landing in half guard. From this position Romero utilized his devastating Ground and Pound landing five viscous elbows to the head of “The Dragon” and knocking him out at 3:22 of the third round. It may have been too soon for Machida to return to the Octagon after suffering a similar loss 70 days ago to now number one contender Luke Rockhold. Is it finally time for Romero vs. Souza for the next shot at the Middleweight champion?

Bellator 185- How to Watch, Times and Fight Card

Published

on

Bellator is once again heading to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville Connecticut, and this time they are bringing with them one of the most anticipated former UFC fighter turned Bellator stars’ debut. Gegard Mousasi will be making his first appearance in the Bellator cage against a former Bellator champion in Alexander Shlemenko. Although this event has lost some of its star power over the last several weeks, it is still stacked and you can bet that the main event will bring some fireworks.

Earlier in the month, it was announced that King Mo had suffered an injury that had forced him out of his co-main event fight with former middleweight champion Liam McGeary. Bellator worked quickly to secure a replacement opponent for McGeary in Bubba McDaniels. Unfortunately for McDaniels and the fans alike, McGeary had later suffered an injury of his own and the fight was removed from the card.

This left a spot open in the co-main event slot, which would be filled by a welterweight matchup between Brennan Ward and David Rickels. Just four days out from the fight, Bellator announced that Ward had also become injured and the fight has been removed from the card as well. The main card has been shuffled around and the welterweight bout between Neiman Gracie and Zak Bucia will now serve as the co-main event.
