With Cain Velasquez and Diego Sanchez off the show, UFC 180 isn’t quite what they planned. Continue reading

Here’s how we’re doing so far:

I imagine that the UFC 169 Countdown was on FS1 or FS2, but I don’t imagine many people saw the special. And that’s a shame, because it was a good one. Continue reading
If 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
Jens Pulver replaces Frank Mir on this show and joins Todd Harris.
Razor Rob McCullough opens the show against Marcus Hicks.
1. Marcus Hicks vs. Rob McCullough
They did absolutely nothing in the first round, but the second round was good. Hicks went for a guillotine and ended up on the bottom of some punches. McCullough was all over him with kicks, knees, and punches, and Hicks was just trying to survive. McCullough ended up with a cut on the side of his eye, but it was his round all the way.
To show how boring this third round has been, the referee threatened to stop the fight and call it a no contest if they didn’t pick it up. Terrible third round. I guess you have to give it to McCullough because of the second round.
Winner: Rob McCullough by way of majority decision.
The crowd hated it and it sounds like the judges did too.
2. Chris Mickle vs. Jose Aldo
