Review: 2011-12-10, the first round and the first two minutes of the second round between Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida were not spectacular but then the pace picks up and the fight ended with an amazing submission (4 stars for the standing guillotine choke and its effectiveness, one of the best of the year); fighters were awarded “Fight of the Night” honors. Jon Jones (14-1-0) entered as the No.1 light heavyweight in the world while Lyoto Machida (17-2-0) entered as the No.6. Jones vs Machida is the main event of the UFC 140 and is valid for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship. Watch the video!
TAG: submission of the year
Review: 2011-11-12, nice fight with two impressive slams of Douglas Evans but as soon as they go to the ground Alexandre Bezerra submits Evans with a great heel hook: one of the best submission of 2011 (the fight it is very close to our 4 stars). Douglas Evans entered the fight with a record of 13-9-0 while Alexandre Bezerra had a record of 11-1-0 (Bellator 57). Watch the video!
Review: 2011-11-05, both fighters start strong but Renan “Barao” Pegado surprises Brad Pickett with a hard knee that rocks the english, so the Brazilian tries to finish him with ground and pound but then submits Pickett with one of the best action of the year (it is very close to our 4 stars). Brad Pickett, ranked as the No.8 bantamweight in the world, entered the fight with a record of 20-5-0 while Renan “Barao” Pegado had a record of 26-1-0. Pickett and Barao were awarded “Fight of the Night” honors (undercard of Leben vs Munoz – UFC 138). Watch the video!
