Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Vol. 43 - Meltdown

UFC 43
MELTDOWN

There was a lot of controversy surrounding this event when it first went down because of Tito Ortiz. The story was Tito refused to fight Chuck Liddell and defend his title so he was stripped of the belt and the belt was put up for Chuck and Randy Couture. The winner of the fight would be the new champ at 205, and is probably what started a lot of the bad blood between the UFC and Tito.

1.PEDRO RIZZO VS TRA TELLIGMAN-I really can not believe that this was a prelim fight, this was a rematch between the two from UFC 20 I believe. The first round was great with some good striking and at one point Rizzo gets dropped and starts to bleed. The second round starts out explosive with a few exchanges that almost end the fight, including a vicious leg kick. Pedro Rizzo ends up winning the fight when the doctors stop the fight due to cuts on Tra.

2.MATT LINDLAND VS FALANIKO VITALE-this is the famous fight that saw Matt Lindland try to take Vitale down and knocks himself out in the process. Very weird yet exciting ending that makes this a very memorable fight.

3.YVES EDWARDS VS EDDIE RUIZ-excellent first round that saw some great ground work, Edwards had a good body triangle on Ruiz for most of the round. The second round starts out great with a beautiful kick onto Ruiz that was crazy. From there we gat some more great ground work from both, and the round ends with a near miss high kick from Yves. In the third round Ruiz escapes a deep triangle from Yves that is unbelievable. Yves ends up getting the decision but Eddie Ruiz showed a ton of heart in this fight.

4.FRANK MIR VS WES SIMS-two very well known names go at each other during this fight and go all out. Wes Sims gets a little to head of him self during the first round and ends up on the ground in a rear naked choke. And after an arm bar attempt by Mir Sims slams him down and proceeds to illegally kick a downed opponent to the head. It is here that Wes Sims is disqualified and the fight is awarded to Frank Mir. I'll give it a classic score because it was a very exciting fight.

5.IAN FREEMAN VS VERNON WHITE-the legendary KEN SHAMROCK was supposed to take this fight but due to an injury Vernon stepped in for him. This fight starts out nice and ends up on the ground for most round one, but leading into the second round they stand up. The second round is a mirror image of round one, start standing then go to the ground for most of the round, and then end up standing back up. The third round ends up being were these two warriors give it every last thing they got and go to a judge's decision. And rightfully so this contest is declared a draw, I agree with this decision, good fight.

6.VITOR BELFORT VS MARVIN EASTMAN-another fight between two well known fighters, both have very big wins in their careers and needed this win to move up in contention. And Vitor came to get that victory, he destroys Marvin with a deadly knee from the clinch and unloads with furious punches till the reff steps in. Marvin gets a sick looking cut on his face, it looks like a hatchet went into him.

7.DAVID "TANK" ABBOT VS KIMO-this was one of the most anticipated fights of all time in my opinion. Two of the biggest legends in the history of the sport. Most people will tell you that this fight was a let down, in my opinion this fight completely lived up to the hype. Like JOE ROGAN says during the fight, people boo this fight because they Didn't understand what was going on. Kimo came well prepared and executed a solid game plan. He took Tank down and work a submission on him and was the better man that day. Kimo really impressed me with this fight, excellent fight.

8.CHUCK LIDDELL VS RANDY COUTURE-since TITO ORTIZ could not [depending on who you believe] fight that night Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell had to get it on for title that night. And while Randy Couture was a 2 time heavyweight champion he was the under dog in this fight, oh how they were wrong. All I can say about this fight is WOW. This is one of the greatest fights in the history of the UFC. Randy Couture really gives it to Chuck Liddell in this fight and exposes his weaknesses. He takes Chuck down the whole fight and even beats him on the stand up game as well. Randy is the new champion after he beats Chuck into a bloody pulp by the third round. Since I really don't like Chuck I love watching this fight all the time.

Excellent event, in fact one of the UFC's best in my opinion.
