Saturday Nite Fights

In a dinner hall with about 1000 other fight fans, we took in the local mixed MMA and Muay Thai event on Saturday night. The fights were all young guys making building their records and getting time in the ring. A couple of real bangers wen the distance and a couple of matches were over in minutes.

UFC 123 Quinton Rampage Jackson vs. Lyoto The Dragon Machida

This was the main event of UFC 123 and people are still talking about it because of the controversy over who won the fight. The judges said the Rampage Jackson won the fight. When the final bell had rung, Rampage said that Lyoto Machida had won the fight. UFC President Dana White said Jackson won the fight. FightMetric, the official statistics keeper for the UFC said the Machida won the fight. And every fight fan out there has a beer-soaked opinion of what happened on that PPV.

UFC 123 BJ Penn vs. Matt Hughes

It was the upset of the night. Well, not so much an upset as it was a surprise. BJ Penn came out on fire and knocked out Matt Hughes in the very first round of their fight at UFC 123. Yup, we were shocked too.

UFC 123 Phil Davis vs. Tim Boetsch

Phil Davis continues to stack up the wins in a style that pleases the crowd and brings a smile to the face of his boss, UFC President Dana White. And what's not to smile about - the guy can bang with the best of them AND take it to the ground like an avalanche. Let's face it - Phil Davis was born to be a MMA fighter.

UFC 123 Mark Munoz vs Aaron Simpson

Mark Munoz proved that he's back and better than ever in his fight against Aaron Simpson at UFC 123. The crazy thing about this match was that Mark and Aaron are training partners from the same gym, and they're buddies. Well, sometimes you gotta fight your friends. Afterall, it's the prizefighting business.

UFC 123 Edson Barboza vs. Mike Lullo

Edson Barboza put on an impressive show at UFC 123. He dominated Mike Lullo and got the victory - no question. We had never seen Barboza fight before this match - and we want to see a whole lot more of this guy. He's an exciting MMA fighter. Let's hope that the UFC doesn't put him in with schlubs.

UFC 123 Tyson Griffin vs. Nik Lentz

Tyson Griffin "was robbed" in his loss to Nik Lentz at UFC 123, or at least that's what UFC President Dana White said about the fight. Never having seen it because it was on the un-televised undercard, we can't say for sure what happened. But Dana White isn't known for being shy - so we'll go with his opinion.

Kajan Johnson vs Ryan Healy – MFC 27

Our buddy Kajan Johnson looked real good in his fight against Ryan Healy at the recent MFC 27. He dominated the entire 3 rounds and took the win without question. Sure, it would have been better for him to finish the fight in knockout style - but he did a heckova job anyway.

Brittney Palmer – UFC Ring Girl

Brittney Palmer is another cutie patootie UFC Ring Girl making her way in the world. She's easy on the eyes and that's really all she can be.

Maximo Blanco vs Kiuma Kunioku

Maximo Blanco is the real deal when it comes to MMA, fighting and generally kicking the crap out of your opponent. Blanco dominated Kunioku throughout the entire fight and took the win.

Zoila Frausto defeats Megumi Fujii at Bellator 34

The decision for Zoila Frausto at Bellator 34 was not without controversy. We saw the fight and we still couldn't tell you whether it was Zoila or Megumi Fujii who won it. It was one of those fights where you know the judges are going to screw up the decision no matter who they declare the winner.

And the winner is…

Terrific moment of the win after the fight. Great work by p4peventphotos.

No other details on who this is, where the fight was or anything. So, we can just build our own story around it.
