Main Bouts – UFC LIVE On Versus 2
Tyson Griffin vs. Takanori Gomi
My Pick – I think Griffin will pull this out! Why? I just feel that Griffin has more power then Gomi and he needs to win! Let’s see… what happens…
Round 1- Oh boy looks like I was wrong!! Damnn Griffin got nailed. WOW!!!! They both came out swinging. I really did not expect that to happen so fast. Man Griffin is disappointed! Wow Gomi really landed that. That was a strong punch. Kudos to Gomi! First time Griffin has been knocked out.
Gomi Defeats Griffin - Round 1 – Knockout 1:04
Jake Ellenberger vs. John Howard
My Pick – Let’s see if I can choose a bit better Howard is looking tough and so does Ellenberger. It is going to come down to who is going to make the first mistake. Tonight I think that will be Howard! Ellenberger for the WIN!
Round 1- Here we go… Both come out hitting hard! Howard sinks a nice left and now they are tied up. Hope Howard didn’t pay for that hair cut Boring.. cmon guys… ok ref breaks it up… Take down for Ellenberger. Howard is doing a good job of holding Ellenbergers arms. On the ground and broken up again… Not much damage done yet… Couple jabs by Ellenberger and bamm another take down for Ellenberger. 15 seconds left and it looks like Ellenberger is winning Round 1
Round 2- Howard lands a nice leg kick. Oww!!! Hit again and Ellenberger takes Howard down again. Man I thought Ellenberger might have been getting dropped there. Ellenberger is trying to pin Howards left arm, but its not working to well. Howard looking for an arm bar. Howards left eye is swollen bad! Boos from the crowd. Back up on their feet.. Howard some shots but Ellenberger takes it to the ground again. Man Howard is hitting him nice, but Ellenberger keeps shooting on him. Dang big elbow from Ellenberger to that swollen eye. OMG that thing is huge!!! Man they might be calling this one, that eye is gonna be shut soon!
Round 3-Well we are going to Round 3 I guess Howards eye is good enough. Oh man flying knee from Howard… Howard has def landed some harder shots, but Ellenberger is still going. Jeez that EYE!!! Take down from Ellenberger… I would not want to have that eye pounded on. On the ground and Ellenberger is just throwing punches. Dean breaks it up. Dr’s looking at Howards eye. Doctor stops the fight. Howard is upset, but man that eye is bad. Better off living to fight another day IMO.
EllenbergerDefeats Howard – Round 3 – 2:21 TKO (Doctor Calls Fight – Howards EYE)
Mark Munoz vs. Yushin Okami
My Pick – I dunno about this one. I want Munoz to win, but since Japan has brought it once tonight already with GOMI I am going to give it to OKAMI. We shall see. I am 1 for 1 on my picks lol
Round 1 – Here we go. Some dancing around.. nice shot landed by Munoz. Boring… Both guys just calibrating… Couple chances but both fighters missing them… On the ground now… Back up, but Munoz can’t find the range, OKAMI is a long dude. Munoz tries for a take down and gets em… lets see what he can do.. not much back up to their feet. Big uppercut from Munoz… 10 seconds and looks like we going to round 2. Not sure who to give it too, I would say Munoz because of the take down, otherwise it was pretty even, but hey what do I know!
Round 2- Munoz seems to be the agressor which could give him some problems, but I always appreciate the aggressor in a fight! Okami seems very hard to take down and has long legs to keep him up. Some big punches just missed by both fighters. PHEWW if they would have landed for either lol. I think OKAMI needs to start throwin more punches. Uh oh munoz rocks OKAMI and they are on the ground… back up and Munoz is swinging.. slug fest.. Munoz attacking, but it slows down. Both fighers on their feet, Munoz for the take down, but Okami Sprawls. I am thinking Munoz should just work on the stand up. Seems like he is hitting more anyway… Munoz is just wasting energy now. Good defense from OKAMI.. On to round 3…
Round 3- OkAMI out swinging which he needs to do. OKAMI needs a knockout!! He is swinging… Oh yeah baby slug time I love this!! On the ground, MUNOZ trying, but OKAMI is long and strong, Back up… Nice both just swinging… Munoz for another take down but no luck… Munoz slips and Okami jumps on him… both fighters are tired, but one of them has to dig deep and make somehting happen. Big slip by Okami, but Munoz does not take full advantage of it.. Dang some tough shots from Munoz… solid shot from Okami and goes for a take down… Okami sprawling… 90 seconds left… Okami is just throwing punches to the body. Some boo’s from the crowd. Okami still throwing body punches… 20 seconds… looks like this is it folks…
Hmmm.. Well I would say round 1 def to Munoz and prob round 2, but 3 goes to Okami. Munoz is prob taking this one folks, but let’s see what the judges say;
OkamiDefeats Munoz – Split Decision Wow! I thought Munoz really won that!
Jon Jones vs. Vladimir Matyushenko
My Pick – OK Folks here we go!! The main event. I have been saying since the very beginning that I think Jones is going to win, so… Jones for the win!! I just don’t think Matyushenko is gonna be able to get in on Jones!
Round 1 - YES!! Here we go… Both fighters sizing each other up… Matyushenko trying to get in… spinning back kick from jones and jones with a take down. Matyushenko going for an arm bar… lets go and now jones on top smothering him… passes into side control… oh man jones on his arm, OMG its over Dean calls it!!! Wow!!
Damn that was quick lol… Jones got on top and started pounding. ha I thought that pinning your arm down was Nelsons trick. Roy why didn’t you show matyushenko that? Anyways hey what can I say great fight!
