GLORY MMA: FIGHT NIGHT RESULTS: Michael 'Mick' Mortimer TKO's Renato Vieira in 41 Seconds in Australia - 5/28/11

DAYS OF GLORY presented GLORY MMA 1: FIGHT NIGHT on Saturday, May 28, 2011, at the Gold Coast Conference and Exhibition Center in Broadbeach, Queensland, Australia.

In the main event, Australian bantamweight Michael "Mick" Mortimer finished off Renato Vieira with punches just 41 seconds into the opening round. While this victory was quick, Aussie Ryan "The Terminator" Yanz shaved 28 seconds off that time in the co-main event and won by TKO over British fighter Neil Laird in just 13 seconds. Not to be outdone, Australia's Stephen Reeks, in only his second pro fight, submitted countryman Sam Gardner with an armbar in a mere 7 seconds. To wrangle another grown man to the ground and tap him out with an armbar in less time than an 8-second bull ride is an exceptional feat indeed.

AMAZON FIGHT 8 RESULTS: Carina Damm Wins in Brazil, Husband Luis Sapo Fights to Draw with Carlos 'Indio' Pereira - 5/27/11

AMAZON FIGHT 8 was held Friday, May 27, 2011, at the State University of Para School of Physical Education Gymnasium in Belem, Para, Brazil.

In the main event, recent Bellator fighter Luis "Sapo" Santos and Carlos Alexandre "Indio" Pereira fought for 15 minutes, but were left without a conclusion after the judges ruled the fight a draw. This was the first draw for both fighters, which is very surprising given the two veterans came into this fight with 87 combined fights under their belts.

Luis Sapo's wife, Carina "Beauty But the Beast" Damm, won her fight in the first round with a keylock submission victory over the MMA-debuting Maguilla "Gorilla" Deize.

Roberto Bruno "Carioca" Da Silva, who has competed at the last 4 consecutive Amazon Fight events, won a unanimous decision over Mickley "Tractorzinho" Robertson. Andre Mikito injured his hand in the second round against Hector Urubu and was unable to continue.

CAGE WARRIORS 42 RESULTS: Joseph Duffy, Jake Hecht and Cathal Pendred Finish Fights in Ireland - 5/28/11

CAGE WARRIORS FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP 42 (CWFC) was held Saturday, May 28, 2011, at the Neptune Stadium in Cork City, Republic of Ireland.

In the main event, undefeated Irish lightweight Joseph Duffy crumbled Spain's Oriol "Cookie Monster" Gaset in the first round. Joe Duffy was part of the original cast of The Ultimate Fighter 12, but lost in the qualifying round to eventual semifinalist Kyle Watson by submission. Taped TUF fights are competed as exhibition bouts and do not count towards official MMA records, thus why Duffy still remains undefeated.

In the co-main event, American Jake "Hitman" Hecht, who trains with Finney's HIT Squad, submitted Englishman Craig White with just 2 seconds left in the second round.

BFL 8 RESULTS: Jesse Taylor Submits Denis Kang in Canada at Battlefield Fight League's ISLAND BEATDOWN - 5/28/11

BATTLEFIELD FIGHT LEAGUE 8: ISLAND BEATDOWN was held Saturday, May 28, 2011, at the Frank Crane Arena in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada.

In the main event, Jesse "JT Money" Taylor scored the biggest win of his MMA career with a first-round submission victory over veteran fighter Denis Kang. Taylor made history by becoming the only fighter to ever be removed from the finals of The Ultimate Fighter. Taylor made it to the finals of TUF 7, but after the taping of the show, Taylor went on a drunken rampage in Las Vegas and was pulled from the live finale. Taylor did eventually get a chance in the UFC, but lost his only fight to CB Dollaway and was released. Taylor has now won 5 straight fights, and with this huge upset win over Kang, Taylor could be drawing possible interest for a Strikeforce or UFC return.

PRESTIGE FC 2 RESULTS: Lee 'Gladiator' Mein Welcomes Ron Faircloth to Canada with an Ass Kicking - 5/28/11

PRESTIGE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP II was held Saturday, May 28, 2011, at the Casman Center in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada.

In the main event, one of Canada's top MMA trainers, Lee "Gladiator" Mein, stepped out of his role as instructor and into the cage to fight American Ron Faircloth. Mein, the 44-year-old father of current Canadian welterweight fighting sensation Jordan "Young Guns" Mein, needed just over a minute to put away the visiting fighter.

The co-main event was a deadly match-up between Ray "Hitman" Penny and Demian "Coroner" Decorah. The Canadian Hitman outpointed the American Coroner on 2 of the 3 judges' scorecards to win a split decision. Decorah has now lost 4 straight fights, which is one short of his worst losing streak. Decorah unceremoniously started his MMA career with 5 straight losses.

DREAM: FIGHT FOR JAPAN RESULTS: Aoki Submits Clementi, Masakazu Imanari and Hideo Tokoro Advance to Finals - 5/29/11

DREAM: FIGHT FOR JAPAN, the seventeenth DREAM event (not including co-promoted Dynamite!! New Year's Eve events) but not DREAM 17, was held Sunday, May 29, 2011, at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The event featured the quarterfinals and semifinals of the Japan Grand Prix 2011 Bantamweight Tournament.

In the semifinals of the Japan Bantamweight Grand Prix, Masakazu "Ashikan Judan" Imanari submitted Kenji Osawa with a heel hook, and Hideo Tokoro edged out Atsushi Yamamoto on two of the three judges' scorecards.

In a non-title fight, DREAM Lightweight Champion Shinya "Tobikan Judan" Aoki had his way with Rich "No Love" Clementi before finally putting the former UFC fighter out of his misery midway through the second round.

UNITED GLORY: MMA WORLD SERIES FINALS RESULTS: Siyar Bahadurzada Captures Tournament Crown in Russia - 5/28/11

The UNITED GLORY: 2010-2011 WORLD SERIES FINALS were held Saturday, May 28, 2011, at the Moscow Forum Hall in Moscow, Russia. The event was promoted by Holland's famed Golden Glory gym and featured the finals of the 8-man welterweight MMA and heavyweight kickboxing tournaments.

Siyar "The Great" Bahadurzada won the United Glory MMA World Series with a second-round TKO victory over Golden Glory teammate Tommy "Scarface" Depret. Siyar Bahadurzada advanced to the finals with quick TKO wins over former UFC fighters John Alessio and Derrick Noble. Bahadurzada beat both of those fighters in under 2 minutes, but needed the better part of 2 rounds to defeat Tommy Depret, who had submitted former UFC fighters Roan "Jucao" Carneiro and David Bielkheden to earn his spot in the tourney final.

UFC 130 RESULTS: Rampage and Frank Mir Dominante - Brian Stann, Rick Story and Demetrious Johnson Rise - 5/28/11

UFC 130: RAMPAGE VS HAMILL was held Saturday, May 27, 2011, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The main event was what we thought it was going to be. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson is simply on another level. Despite all of Matt "The Hammer" Hamill's pre-fight talk about how he was going to be able to compete with Rampage, it simply wasn't the case. Rampage was better than Matt Hamill in every facet of the game, so much so that Rampage was able to sail with ease to a relatively pedestrian-like unanimous decision victory. Hamill proved to be a formidable punching bag, but wasn't able to outwrestle Rampage. Going into the third round, Hamill was visibly defeated.
