KING OF THE CAGE: NO MERCY RESULTS - Jimmie Rivera Crowned New Flyweight Champion Over Abel Cullum - 9/17/10

KOTC: NO MERCER - Pic by MMA Mania
KOTC: NO MERCY was held Friday September 17, 2010 at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Connecticut. The main card aired live on HDNet.

Undefeated heavyweight Ron "The Monster" Sparks, who hasn't fought in 15 months, has seen Strikeforce fights with Shane Del Rosario and Bobby Lashley fall through this year, and has tried on multiple occasions to fight "Merciless" Ray Mercer. Sparks was once again left without an opponent, as the Merciless one was forced to withdraw from his scheduled main event with Sparks.

Ray Mercer, an Olympic gold medalist boxer is 1-0 in MMA with a 9-second knockout of former UFC heavyweight champ Tim Sylvia. Unfortunately, Mercer was unable to get medically cleared for this fight with Ron Sparks. HDNet Fights President Guy Mezger Tweeted Mercer was denied a license due to an injury from 13 years ago, which Mercer has been cleared to fight with since. King of the Cage was unable to find a replacement for Mercer on such late notice.

With Ron Sparks and Ray Mercer off the card, Abel "The Silent Assassin" Cullum's KOTC Flyweight Championship defense against Jimmie "El Terror" Rivera was moved to the main event slot. Cullum and Rivera did not disappoint, as the two went to war for 5 championship rounds. In the end, Rivera's hand was raised for the split decision victory and a new KOTC Flyweight Champion was crowned.

In the co-main event, undefeated welterweight prospects squared off. Myles "The Fury" Jury improved his perfect record to 9-0 with a rare neck crank submission win over Philadelphia Fight Factory's Sam Oropeza.

In the night's first championship fight, KOTC Bantamweight Champion Donald Sanchez successfully defended his title against Pat "The Real Deal" McGreal. Sanchez needed just under two and a half minutes to secure a rear-naked choke for the submission victory. King of the Cage does not have a featherweight division. The KOTC bantamweight division is competed at 145-pounds, which would normally be considered featherweight.

The opening two fights both went to decisions. Jesus "Chavo" Martinez remained unbeaten with a unanimous decision victory over Chip "The Surgeon" Moraza-Pollard, and Noah Weisman outpointed Sean Wilmot to kick off the show.


{Flyweight Championship}
Jimmie Rivera (7-1) won by SD over Abel Cullum (18-4)

BELLATOR 29 RESULTS: Cole Konrad and Neil Grove Advance to Finals of Heavyweight Tournament - 9/16/10

Neil Grove KO's Alexey Oleinik
BELLATOR FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIPS XXIX was held Thursday September 16, 2010 at The Rave in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The main card aired live on Fox Sports Net.

Undefeated heavyweights clashed in the main event, one of two semifinal bouts in the inaugural Bellator Heavyweight Tournament, with NCAA Division I wrestling champion Cole "The Polar Bear" Konrad coming out victorious over Damian "Polish Pitbull" Grabowski via unanimous decision. In the other semifinal bout, former UFC fighter Neil "Goliath" Grove needed just 45 seconds to put away Alexey Oleinik. Konrad and Grove will battle for the Bellator Heavyweight Championship in October.

In non-tournament bouts, Brett Cooper pounded out a victory over Matt Major, and Jameel "The Sergeant" Massouh has now won back-to-back fights after going 0-3 in the WEC. Massouh choked out Nick "Garfield" Mamalis in the first round.

On the undercard, Justin "The Fighting Fireman" Lemke won a split decision over Clay Guida's older brother Jason Guida. Sasa "The Serbian Warrior" Perkic picked up his third win via a more decisive unanimous decision over "Nasty" Nick Dupee, whose last name Bellator lists as Dupees, and most MMA media followed suit. Kyle "Wicked" Weickhardt scored a head kick KO over Luis Ramirez to remain undefeated.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT 22 RESULTS: Marquardt Stuns Palhares, Charles Oliveira and Cole Miller Grab Spotlight - 9/15/10

UFC FIGHT NIGHT 22: MARQUARDT VS PALHARES was held Wednesday September 15, 2010 at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. The main card aired live on Spike TV and preceded the season premiere of THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER 12: TEAM GSP VS TEAM KOSCHECK.

Seven of the ten fights at UFC Fight Night 22 resulted in the betting line underdog winning.

In the main event, Nate "The Great" Marquardt took advantage of a brutal error on the part of Rousimar Palhares. As the two fighters were scrambling on the ground, Palhares went for a leg lock, but Marquardt was able to squirm his way out and escape.

In one of the most egregious lapses in concentration I've ever seen in a pro fight, Rousimar Palhares, who was laying on his back, put his hand in the air to mysteriously protest and looked away from his opponent, towards the referee. Nate Marquardt, realizing Palhares was paying no attention at all to the fight he was in, popped him in the mouth and kept hitting him in the face until the referee stopped the fight.

It turns out Rousimar Palhares believed Nate Marquardt's legs were greased, which was proven to not be true upon post-fight inspection by officials. Palhares recanted his claim and apologized to Marquardt in a post-fight interview.

In the co-main event, 20-year-old Charles "do Bronx" Oliveira scored a huge rear-naked choke submission win over TUF 8 winner Efrain Escudero, who tapped out standing up. Since Oliveira can't legally purchase a beer in the United States to celebrate his victory, I had one for him. Oliveira is quickly becoming the next big thing in the UFC lightweight division.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT 22 BONUSES: $40K Bonus Payouts for Kingsbury, Hamman, Foster, Oliveira and Cole Miller - 9/15/10

The UFC awarded bonuses for UFC FIGHT NIGHT 22: MARQUARDT VS PALHARES in the amount of $40,000 each. After every event, the UFC awards performance-based payout bonuses to at least 4 fighters. This time, an additional bonus was given for Submission of the Night, so 5 fighters received bonuses.

Kyle "Kingsbu" Kingsbury and Jared "The Messenger" Hamman earned Fight of the Night honors for their 3-round preliminary bout war. This is the second fight in a row that Hamman has won Fight of the Night.

Brian Foster scored the Knockout of the Night bonus with a 1:07 TKO over veteran fighter Forrest "The Meat Cleaver" Petz in the first undercard fight. Foster beat out main event winner Nate Marquardt for the honor.

Two Submission of the Night bonuses were handed out, with Charles "Do Bronx" Oliveira and Cole "Magrinho" Miller splitting the honor. Oliveira was awarded for his standing rear-naked choke submission over TUF 8 winner Efrain "Hecho en Mexico" Escudero in the co-main event. Miller was also awarded for a rear-naked choke over TUF 9 winner Ross "The Real Deal" Pearson in the opening televised fight. Oliveira and Miller were the only two fighters eligible for the award.


FIGHT OF THE NIGHT: Kyle Kingsbury vs. Jared Hamman




All 5 of these fighters are $40,000 richer thanks to their UFC Fight Night 22 performances.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT 22 PREVIEW: Predictions, Betting Odds, Weigh-In Results for 9/15/10

UFC FIGHT NIGHT 22: MARQUARDT VS PALHARES will be held Wednesday September 15, 2010 at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. The main card will air live on Spike TV at 8:00 pm EST.

Madness Levels indicate the amount of insanity inspired in anticipation of a fight on a scale of 1 to 10, a numerical translation of just how excited I am for each fight.

Striving to be the most analytically astute fight preview column possible. Let the madness begin...

LOSS to Dan Henderson by UD at UFC 88 (9/08)

WIN over Ivan Salaverry by SUB at UFC 84 (5/08)


This fight was moved from UFC 118 after Alan Belcher had to pull out of the original main event against Demian Maia due to a detached retina. Maia vs Mario Miranda was traded to UFC 118 for this fight to main event.

The man simply known as Paul Harris, Rousimar Palhares, gets the highest profile fight of his career coming off a 3-month suspension for dangerously holding onto a heel hook too long after Tomasz Drwal had tapped. Palhares is a compact submission machine, but both Jeremy Horn and Dan Henderson were able to fend him off for the duration of 3 rounds, albeit to different results as Horn lost to Palhares and Henderson beat him. I expect Nate Marquardt to use his wrestling and stand-up advantage to avoid Palhares’ submissions and outpoint him on the feet.

PREDICTION: Nate Marquardt by Decision



Palhares is one of the more underrated fighters in the world. I'll take him to win with one of his patented nasty leglocks.

PREDICTION: Rousimar Palhares by Submission



Gonna be interesting to see Nate back in the ring after getting owned by Chael, and to see if Palhares learned his lesson by not being a dumbass and holding onto a submission after someone is tapping. I hope Nate kicks the shit out of him!

PREDICTION: Nate Marquardt by Decision

X-1: HEROES RESULTS - Falaniko Vitale Defends, Poai Suganuma and Sang Soo Lee Advance to Tournament Finale - 9/11/10

X-1: HEROES was held Saturday September 11, 2010 at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii. The event featured 3 X-1 championship fights and the semifinals of the X-1 Light Heavyweight Tournament.

In the main event, Falaniko "Niko" Vitale used an Ezekiel choke to submit Kala "Kolohe" Hose in the fourth round to successfully defend his X-1 Middleweight Championship.

Poai Suganuma and Sang Soo Lee advanced to the finals of the X-1 Light Heavyweight Tournament and will fight each other for the vacant 205-pound title at the next X-1 event. Vitaly "The Dancing Russian" Shemetov and previously unbeaten Brit Roy Boughton were eliminated from the tournament.

Ricky "Hoku" Wallace defended his X-1 Featherweight Championship with a rear-naked choke over veteran fighter Alvin Cacdac. Russell Doane became the new X-1 Bantamweight Champion with a triangle choke victory over Bryson Hansen.

Max "Lil Evil" Holloway made a successful MMA debut with a decision win over Duke Saragosa. MMA couple Raquel Paaluhi and Dustin Kimura achieved opposite results, with Paaluhi losing by armbar to undefeated Sarah "The Monster" D'Alelio, and Kimura winning by triangle choke over Chris "Red Bull" Willems.

MFC 26 RESULTS: Antonio McKee Makes a Statement with His Elbow, Douglas Lima Shocks the Canadian Crowd - 9/10/10

MAXIMUM FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP 26: RETRIBUTION was held Friday September 10, 2010 at the Westman Place at The Keystone Centre in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. The main card aired live in North America on HDNet.

In the main event, Douglas "The Phenom" Lima caught hometown favorite Ryan "The Real Deal" Ford with an armbar less than a minute into the second round. Before this loss, Ford was thought to be a strong contender for an eventual spot in the UFC. Instead, the American Lima captured the spotlight from the Canadian sensation.

In the co-main event, MFC Lightweight Champion Antonio "Mandingo" McKee, who vowed to retire from MMA if he didn't finish challenger Luciano Azevedo, caught Azevedo with a nasty elbow that opened up a cut. In a weird sequence, Azevedo, whose head and shoulders were outside of the ring ropes, turned to his stomach after being cut with the elbow, and the ref stepped in. But the ref didn't stop the fight. Instead he asked the ringside doctor to check the cut. Although Azevedo had clearly given up, the ref instead bizarrely allowed him to have a timeout. This ended up being irrelevant, however, as Azevedo had already established he was done, and McKee was awarded the fight by doctor stoppage.

American wrestler Jesse "JT Money" Taylor applied his grappling craft against Brit Tom "Kong" Watson for three rounds and won a clear unanimous decision victory. Watson will return to the United Kingdom for a big main event fight with Big Brother reality superstar Alex Reid at BAMMA 4 in less than two weeks.

TUF 3 participant Mike Nickels looked downright awful against Dwayne Lewis, who finished off the former UFC fighter in just a minute and a half. Nickels sloppily charged at Lewis for a takedown and was promptly put down. Lewis has an aggressive and entertaining style that would suit him well for a run in the UFC.

In a battle of UFC castoffs, David Heath used a Kyukushin karate variation of the Superman punch, called a "balk right hand" by announcer Michael "The Voice" Schiavello, to take the crown of "King" Solomon Hutcherson with a knockout. Heath has put together 3 straight wins in 2010 and has reinvented himself as a badass fighter. Strikeforce would be wise to bring in Heath and set up a rematch with Renato "Babalu" Sobral, who was fired from the UFC for holding onto an Anaconda choke for too long after submitting Heath.

In the opening televised fight, veteran fighter Curtis "The Demon" Demarce used a triangle choke to put the first blemish on the record of Tyson "The Man of" Steele.


Douglas Lima (15-4) won by SUB over Ryan Ford (12-3)
[5:48] - 0:48 Round 2 - armbar

{Lightweight Championship}

SHARK FIGHTS 13 RESULTS: Keith Jardine Loses Again, Houston Alexander TKO's Sokoudjou in Texas - 9/11/10

SHARK FIGHTS 13: JARDINE VS PRANGLEY was held Saturday September 11, 2010 at the Amarillo Civic Center Coliseum in Amarillo, Texas. The main card aired live on PPV, while the undercard streamed live for free on

Keith "The Dean of Mean" Machine has now lost 5 straight fights. After being ousted from the UFC for 4 consecutive losses, Jardine was unable to rebound on his first try outside of the Octagon. Shark Fights Light Heavyweight Champion Trevor Prangley scored the biggest win of his career and has made a case for his own return to the UFC.

In the co-main event, Houston "The Assassin" Alexander survived a first round beatdown from fellow hitman handle Rameau Thierry "The African Assassin" Sokoudjou. After starting the second round with wobbly legs, Alexander managed to catch Sokoudjou and pounded out a victory over the fatigued Team Quest fighter. This was a much-needed win for Alexander, who has definitely found a new home in the Shark Tank. The Amarillo crowd was chanting Alexander's name after his highly impressive come-from-behind victory.

In his first fight in America since suckerpunching Josh Koscheck and getting booted from the UFC, Paul "Semtex" Daley outpointed Jorge "Gamebred" Masvidal, who moved up from lightweight for this fight. Daley failed to make weight for this fight and was docked twenty-percent of his fight purse.

Danillo "Indio" Villefort and Tarec "Sponge" Saffiedine scored upset decision wins over "Smokin'" Joey Villasenor and Brock Larson, respectively. Paul Bradley kicked off the PPV card with an impressive victory over Johnny "The Hater Hurter" Rees.

Ronnie Mann captured the Shark Fights Featherweight Championship in the featured fight of the undercard. Although Doug Evans successfully used his wrestling to take down the British fighter often, Mann did enough on his feet to win the fight on two judges' scorecards.

Former light heavyweight Aaron Rosa scored a unanimous decision win over Devin Cole in a heavyweight bout. Daniel Straus and Eric "Big Head" Davila both scored impressive upset wins over Karen Darabedyan and Pete Spratt, respectively.
