UFC 139 Undercard Results With Live Thoughts

While I’m not live at UFC 139, Cactus Jim is and he’s sent in his thoughts of the fights and things we may not discern from watching the Facebook fights.

1. Danny Castillo defeated Sharmar Bailey by 1st round TKO

Cactus Jim says:
Probably about 30 percent full. Good reaction for the first fight. The life pop for Castillo was good especially when he went to the mount and for the finish.

2. Seth Baczynski defeated Matt Brown by 2nd round submission

Cactus Jim says:
Crowd was quite for this fight. Baczynski looked quite a bit bigger and it seemed like like a pretty easy win.

3. Miguel Torres defeated Nick Pace by unanimous decision

Cactus Jim says:
Strong reaction for Torres. Not sure if it’s the Mexican fighter cheer or damn good fighter cheer. Pace was booed. Arriany’s ass looks marvelous. Looks like 30-27 for Torres.

4. Gleison Tibau defeated Raphael Dos Anjos by split decision

Cactus Jim says:
Tibau wins the battle of the entrance music, but probably loses the fight. Dos Anjos made a good showing in round three, but it’s 29-28 Tibau on my card.

5. Chris Weidman defeated Tom Lawlor by 1st round submission

Cactus Jim says:
The crowd loves Lawlor’s entrance. (It was Olivia Newton John’s Let’s Get Physical according to Big Dave Meltzer). Referee Josh Rosenthal was laughing and told Lawlor that his entrance was nice. Filthy Tom Lawlor took a nap. Crowd is about 70% full now.

6. Michael McDonald defeated Alex Soto by 1st round TKO

Cactus Jim says:
Crowd is behind McDonald. Holy shit.

7. Ryan Bader defeated Jason Brilz by 1st round TKO

Cactus Jim says:
Brilz looks to be in the best shape ever. Too bad.

Next up is the PPV portion of our play by play.

UFC Fight Night – Rousimar Palhares Vs. Nate Marquardt

This is the show that preludes the new season of The Ultimate Fighter with Geoges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck as coaches, which leads up to their fight in December.

Rousimar Palhares vs. Nate Marquardt is the main event on the show, but Efrain Escudero and Charles Oliveira might be the most intriguing fight of them all.

1. Ross Pearson vs. Cole Miller

Miller was active early on shooting in for the takedown and getting one. Pearson looks really comfortable on his feet, even though Miller has a tremendous reach advantage with both his arms and legs. His strikes are slower, but because he’s so long, he’s able to land. Pearson spent the entire round trying to get inside.

Miller landed a left hook that came several punches after a wacky flying knee that missed. Pearson buckled and immediately, Miller got his back and Pearson tapped.

Winner: Cole Miller by way of 2nd round submission

I thought Pearson would win because his striking is more compact and because Miller has been inconsistent and at times gets overpowered, but Miller came to fight tonight. In his interview with Joe Rogan, he called out boring fighters who don’t try to finish.

2. Gleison Tibau vs. Jim Miller

Tibau got an early takedown, but didn’t do anything with it. The boxed for the rest of the round. Miller landed three big straight lefts to end the round that were the best shots of the round. Tibau is going to get hit with that punch at will unless he switches it up.
