UFC 159

Spoilers

DISC 1

1.PAT HEALY VS JIM MILLER-in the first round here Miller was looking really good timing Healy and landing. He gains the takedown and eventually goes for Healy’s arm, almost getting it. Once back up Pat gets a takedown of his own and goes for Miller’s back. Healy also lets loose with a big belly to back suplex but eventually miller ends up on top. The second round is mostly Healy as he gets Miller down and keeps him there for most of the round. But like the last round towards the end Miller ends up reversing the position. The third round stays standing for a while with Miller trying to avoid the takedown. Healy stayed relentless and finally got it and eventually sunk in a rear naked choke getting the win by submission. But it would later be overturned to a no contest when he tested positive for “the marijuana”.

2.PHIL DAVIS VS VINNY MAGALHEAS-this was a good fight with the first round being somewhat even until Phil rocks Vinny. He landed a head kick and a follow up flurry that gave him the round even though Vinny had Phil’s back at one point. The second round is a close one with both landing a few good shots but it was a very close round. The third round sees a more active Davis take the round out striking Vinny and getting the UD.

3.ROY NELSON VS CHEICK KONGO-the fight I was most looking forward too as I am a “Big Country” fan. I knew going into this what was going to happen. After spending some time in the clinch once they are broken up it isn’t long until Roy knocks Kongo out cold. He drops him with a big right then knocks him straight out when Kongo was getting back up.

4.ALAN BELCHER VS MICHAEL BISPING-the first round was a close one that slightly went to Bisping. The second round is mainly Bisping as he peppers Alan with punches and leg kicks. Belcher starts to come alive a little towards the end but it is Bisping’s round. The third round is much of the same until we have less than a minute to go. Belcher gets poked in the eye and his eye starts gushing blood, the fight is stopped and awarded to Bisping.

5.JON JONES VS CHAEL SONNON-this fight goes exactly like many thought it would and I was not one of them. I really wanted Chael to win this. In fact I want any and everybody to beat Jones since I can’t stand that disrespectful guy. Still you can’t take away from the guy and his abilities and he controls this fight. The fight sees Jones take Sonnen down repeatedly and eventually get the TKO victory. After the fight you realize he had a nasty broken toe.

DISC 2

1.STEVEN SILER VS KURT HOLOBAUGH-the first fight of the night opened up well with Kurt getting cut in the first round. The first half was mostly spent in the clinch until Siler got Kurt down and was working for a rear naked choke that he almost finished with. The second round was a great one with Kurt coming back and making it a big round for him this time. He worked for various chokes and there was one point where on his back he pushes Siler off then gets up and immediately takes Siler down, highly impressive. It was one and one going into the third and both of these guys wanted it landing some big shots with elbows and knees and such. But it would be Siler who takes the round and the UD after getting on top and dropping bombs.

2.LEANORD GARCIA VS CODY MCKENZIE-Cody had a big opening round as he followed an initial takedown with a big slam on Garcia and spent the rest of the round on Garcia’s back. He ends the round with a tight triangle that goes to the bell. The second round is just the same although it takes a bit longer for Cody to get to Garcia’s back. The final round except for the very end is all on the feet and is a bit closer. But the judges see it rightfully so for Cody by way of UD.

3.BRYAN CARAWAY VS JOHNNY BEDFORD-good first round between these two with both guys hitting each other with some good shots. But I give the round to Caraway after he takes Bedford’s back and ends up on top again later. The second round is another close while on the feet but Bryan gets it down and controls for the last half of the round. The third round looked just like the last two but Bryan wanted the finish and he gets it with a guillotine choke.

4.SARA MCMANN VS SHEILA GAFF-now I am always looking forward to the women’s fights because I am a huge fan of females in general. But I love WMMA because they always come to fight. Right from jump the Olympic silver medalists McMann takes Gaff down and works over Sheila’s body until the stand up. They move into the clinch and Sara gets it back down, from there she moved into side control. She then put Gaff in the crucifix and pounded her out for the TKO win, big win for McMann.

5.OVINCE ST PREUX VS GIAN VILLANTE-the first round here sees both guys land some good kicks, high and low. Still it was OSP that took the round after a nice flurry that kinda rocked Gian. We get a close second round that the fans voiced their displeasure in. now thirty three seconds into the final round OSP pokes Gian in the eye. Then instead of Gian getting his time to recover the ref calls it in a bad miscommunication moment. OSP gets the Majority Technical Decision.

6.RUSTAM KHABILOV VS YANCY MEDERIOS-this was shaping up to be an excellent fight as they were throwing heavy leather and the grappling exchange that happened before the end was excellent. Mederios ends up dislocating his thumb and Khabilov gets the TKO in the record books.

For special features we get the weigh-ins, a feature with Rogan and the post fight press conference. This was a weird event with some crazy things happening in it. Over all it was good with the women’s fight and Roy getting the knock out.
