What were the top stories last week?
On a night when UFC, Bellator, and WWE Smackdown go head-to-head-to-head (at least somewhat on the east coast), we have live coverage of Fight Night – Jacare Vs Mousasi. Continue reading
It’s the rematch to the last WEC fight and a rematch to one of the best title fights in recent MMA history. Will Benson Henderson continue to win close fights and establish himself as one of the best championship rounds fighter? Or is it Anthony Pettis’ time?

1. Dustin Poirier vs. Erik Koch
Poirier got Koch down quickly, but put himself right into a triangle attempt. Koch didn’t look to have it, but eventually did sync it in.

He couldn’t finish him with punches so tried an arm triangle, but Koch hung on. Has to be close to a 10-8 for Poirier. Continue reading

This show comes off the heels of the Bellator debut on Spike TV and right before the new season of The Ultimate Fighter and also kicks off several weeks in a row of UFC shows, including next weekend’s UFC On Fox show which will probably get some publicity during this weekend’s NFC Conference Championship game.
1. Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Thiago Tavares
Damn. Nurmagomedov caught Tavares with a lunging uppercut and blasted him with elbows to the side of his head until the stoppage. Tavares probably took 5-10 too many shots there as he wasn’t defending at all.
Winner: Khabib Nurmagomedov by way of 1st round TKO
2. Ben Rothwell vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
