UFC On Fox 6 – John Dodson Vs. Demetrious Johnson Play By Play

UFC on Fox 6If you missed it, yesterday we previewed the top three fights on the show.

On the biggest two fights on the FX prelims, Clay Guida won a questionable decision over Hatsu Hioki which either should’ve gone to Hioki or maybe should’ve been a draw, and TJ Grant annihilated Matt Wiman, who doesn’t go by the nickname of handsome anymore, and after taking multiple elbows to the face, might not be handsome anymore.

1. Ricardo Lamas vs. Erik Koch

Koch played defense for most of the round and was tied up fighting the takedown. Lamas is also the quicker and more active of the two so far.

That didn’t take long. Lamas slipped, Koch tried to get on top, but Lamas ended up on top and just drilled him with elbow after elbow. Game, set, match.

Winner: Ricard Lamas by way of 2nd round TKO

2. Donald Cerrone vs. Anthony Pettis

UFC On Fox 6 Preview – John Dodson Vs. Demetrious Johnson

UFC on Fox 6After the fantastic UFC On Fox 5 (my favorite show of 2012), UFC On Fox 6 has a lot to live up to. For one, it’s right smack dab in between last week’s highly rated 49ers vs. Falcons game, and Super Bowl weekend. Thus, a lot of eye balls would’ve seen the promotion by Fox for the show. The main event features what could be a stylistically excellent fight between two speedsters, but neither is a big name in a division without big names.

Some of the folks on FGB along with friend of the site JP, Heidi Fang from MMA Fight Corner and Stevie J from Angry Marks have made their picks.

We’ll preview the top three fights on the show.

Anthony Pettis Vs. Donald Cerrone

Stevie J: Cerrone by TKO
This is more of a personal pick than an intellectual one – I just really like the Cowboy and always have. I take nothing away from Pettis, except that he’s had a year off, and I don’t think that made him “rusty” – but some people reading this might. Maybe not a bad pick after all.

Heidi: Pettis
This is my favorite fight on the card. How can it not be? I kept asking the fight gods of sparta that no one get hurt so this could finally come to fruition. I met with Pettis when his younger brother Sergio was fighting at RFA and he was none too pleased with Cerrone’s smack talking and calling him out when he was hurt. Now fully healthy, look for Pettis to bring back some flashy, devastating moves that can put Cerrone’s lights out. Though both men are well reputed finishers with power to have their way with any opponent, I’m going with Pettis to take this one. I’m also prepared for this to be one of the fights of the year.

GG: Cerrone by decision
I would’ve rather this fight headlined a FX card so that it could be five rounds instead of three. I’m basing my pick on pure rust. No matter if he hasn’t always looked good recently, Cerrone is the more active of the two. It could take Pettis a round to get it going and by then, it may be a round that he’s already lost. These guys will pick up the pace though. They don’t want to be upstaged by the main event.

Glover Teixeira vs. Rampage Jackson

FGB Radio Part 1 – HarBowl, Bellator, Bisping, And UFC On Fox

ufconfox6Jason aka @dadrrtywhyteboi, and I are back to go over the NFC and AFC title games and talk about this little thing called the HarBowl. After we get the football and that little game called the Super Bowl out of the way, we review the first Bellator show on Spike and compare it to UFC shows on FX. We go over what we liked and didn’t, and what they could do to improve.

We talk about Michael Bisping and what his loss to Vitor Belfort means. Will he ever get a shot at the title? And what about Vitor’s rambling promo and hypocritical stance when it comes to morals?

Lastly, we do a short preview on the UFC on Fox show with Rampage Jackson vs. Glover Teixeira, Demetrious Johnson vs. John Dodson, and Anthony Pettis vs. Donald Cerrone.

This is part one of a two-parter. Big D joins us in part two.

The Ultimate Fighter Season 14 Finale – Mayhem Miller Vs. Michael Bisping Play By Play

Mayhem Miller and Michael Bisping brought a little fire back onto The Ultimate Fighter after a coaches’ friendlier version last season. It was well needed too. The show is on its last legs of the current revision, but thanks to Michael Bisping as one of the great heels going today and Mayhem as the goofy good guy, as well as some exciting fights from the bantamweight and featherweight guys, it was a really good season. Next season, the show moves to FX and the fight is live every Friday night.

1. Louis Gaudinot vs. Johnny Bedford

Bedford tooled him the entire round. He was on top of him and in the mount for most of the round with Gaudinot only able to cover up because he couldn’t buck him off. Near the end of the round he was back to his feet but took a lot of punishment and his eyes show it.

Bedford had Gaudinot up against the cage and he was unleashing punches, but he doesn’t have much power. He took it back to the ground. He beat up Gaudinot more on the ground and basically just got bored, and maneuvered into an arm bar. He couldn’t separate Gaudinot’s hands as the bell ended. Gaudinot may be stopped in the next round.

Bedford landed a pretty vicious knee that sent Gaudinot down and he followed up with some ground and pound and finally got the stoppage. Thankfully.

Winner: Johnny Bedford by way of 3rd round TKO

2. Tony Ferguson vs. Yves Edwards

Fantastic first round. Edwards looked really good for about 2 1/2 minutes. He was landing some nice counter punches and had Ferguson off-balanced. But Ferguson has the heavier hands and landed the bigger shots. Edwards spend the last minute of the fight trying to stay on his feet. Ferguson has him timed a lot better now.

Edwards surprisingly bloodied Ferguson’s nose. Rogan keeps saying that Edwards’ shots aren’t flush or as on the money as Ferguson’s, but the blood says differently. Ferguson is throwing a lead uppercut. Ferguson tried to steal the round at the end with a takedown. Edwards tried too, but he was stuffed.

Another strong and competitive round. These last two rounds were hard to score. I think I’d give the fight to Ferguson because he was setting the pace and landing the more consistent shots. Edwards was hard to root against though. He was throwing a lot of high kicks and fought a really strong fight.

Winner: Tony Ferguson by unanimous decision

The scores were 30-27, 30-27, and 29-28.

3. John Dodson vs. TJ Dillashaw

The Ultimate Fighter Season 14 – Episode 10

We’re down to the final actual episode of the Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV. The season finale is this weekend and tonight, we’ll see which other two fighters make it.

Dodson says this fight is different because his opponent (Johnny Bedford) is standing right there watching him. Bedford wants him because he was the mole. Mayhem says that he’ll let the guys choose which assistant coaches they want in their corner and he’ll sit off to the side and just watch.

Dodson says he has a Napoleon complex.

Johnny Bedford vs. John Dodson

It’s 5’10 vs. 5’3. Jeez Dodson, at least say that you’re 5’5.

Pretty close first round. Bedford had some nice counter strikes early on. But Dodson is a problem for him. Whenever he gets in close, he gets punched with a short hook. Both men got takedowns. Bedford looks frustrated.

Bedford rocked him a bit early in the round, but Dodson caught him with a short hook and he went down. Dodson followed up with rapid fire shots on the ground and it was over.

Winner: John Dodson by 2nd round TKO

Bryan Caraway says he’s thrown up before 30 of his 33 fights. Mayhem tries to hype him up a bit. If I had to fight crazy Diego, I’d throw up before the fight too.

On the last night in the house, Mayhem parties with the guys and starts riding his bike while in his underwear. He then jumps into the pool with his bike.

Bryan Caraway vs. Diego Brandao

Diego threw a left hook that put a hole in the door while coming out.

This was one of the poorer stoppages I’ve seen in a while. Diego was all over him and was drilling him with shots on the ground. He took a ton of unnecessary punishment. Caraway had that look on his face that said, “Get me out of here.” Diego is a mini-Mike Tyson.

Winner: Diego Brandao by 1st round TKO

Diego calls out Dennis for talking shit. Dennis looked over to whoever was to his left and said he didn’t say anything. He already looked scared.

Bisping tells Mayhem, “Welcome to the UFC.” Mayhem has already fought in the UFC before buddy.

The Ultimate Fighter Season 14 – Episode 6

Bisping is the the best heel in the world. After Akira wins his fight, he badgers assistant coach Ryan Parsons, though Parsons was asking for it, based on what we saw.

There’s an awesome scene where Bisping and Diego are sitting on a couch, both wearing sunglasses and acting like Diego is going to run through Siler. Bisping says Diego can get a bit tired and Siler is tougher than he looks.

Diego says he’s fighting for his father who passed away. He looks like a mini-Thiago Alves. Siler looks a little nervous and he should.

Steven Siler vs. Diego Brandao

Brandao came out with a wacky flying knee and he’s winging punches like crazy. He threw a nasty overhand right that landed and followed up with a left hook and it was lights out. Siler didn’t have a chance.

Winner: Diego Brandao by way of 1st round TKO

Bisping is just ripping Miller while Miller’s trying to console Siler. Miller says Bisping might have a small penis and that’s why he’s such a dick.

Roland Delorme has something on his foot that Miller thinks could be staph.

Bisping cuts a promo on both teams and on Miller which was simply amazing. He’s making himself out to be such a star. Too bad this thing isn’t getting the ratings it deserves.

John Dodson vs. John Albert
