Hey everyone. I just want apologise for not having any of my usual blogs up last week, I had some problems with my computer but it is all fixed now and I am looking to this fight card and to UFC 136 the weekend after.
UFC Live 6 will be held in Washington D.C. at the Verizon Center. The preliminary card will shown on facebook with the main card being shown on One HD in Australia on Sunday 2 October @ 10am.
This saturday night the UFC will present the 25th installment of their fight night series. The night sees Jake Shields return to the Octagon after his defeat to GSP, and the event will also see Alan ‘The Talent’ Belcher return after a 16 month lay off. The Main card will be shown from 11:00am in Australia on One HD.
Hey everyone I am so sorry for not doing any predictions or any other type of blogs for a long time, the last few weeks have been absolutely hectic for me but now I am back.
Ok now on to business, the semi-finals of the Strikeforce Heavyweight GP and man there were some upsets on the card. While everyone expected Josh Barnett to beat Sergei Kharitonov and make it through to the final; the real surprise of the tournament was Daniel Cormier. Cormier, who at the start of tournament was just an alternate, defeated Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva by KO who was another favourite due to beating Fedor Emelianenko. Before the match I did think that Cormier had a chance of winning by using his world class wrestling, but I didn’t think he would KO ‘Bigfoot’ and I am looking forward to him and Barnett facing off.
The other match that surprised me was Luke Rickhold defeating Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza. I had no doubt Rockhold would one day be a Champion but I thought that ‘Jacare’ would have his measure, but Rockhold showed that he was ready now and got the unanimous decision. Here are the full results of the card.
Dominique Steele def Chris Mierzwiak by unanimous decision
Alexis davis def Amanda Nunes by TKO
Jordan Mein def Evangelista ‘Cyborg’ Santos by TKO
Rafael ‘Feijao’ Cavelcante def Yoel Romero by KO
Mike Kyle def Marcos Rogerio De Lima by unanimous decision
Pat Healy def Maximo Blanco by submission (rear naked choke)
Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal def Roger Gracie by KO
Luke Rockhold def Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza by unanimous decision
Daniel Cormier def Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva by KO
Josh Barnett def Sergei Kharitonov by submission (arm-triangle choke)
