CONTINUED FROM THE LAST PAGE:



Roger Huerta vs. Zorobabel Moreira coming up. Roger really needs a win here, but from what I've seen of Moreira, this may be a tough fight. Huerta was supposed to be fighting Phil Baroni on this card, but he sucks and lost to a can, so Zoro is acting as his replacement. Huerta comes out bald and not looking a whole lot like Huerta. It is quickly apparent that Huerta has spent a lot of time in Thailand, as he comes out in a Muay Thai stance and throwing a lot kicks. He does look a bit sloppy, though. Roger is really attacking with his low kicks, but Zoro is countering well. Roger is proving to be very porous defensivel, but is still pouring on the offence. The second round continues the action from the first. Both are landing heavy blows. Huerta appears to be tiring badly as Zoro pins him to the cage with punches and knees. Zoro rocks him badly, but Roger fights back like the warrior he is. Roger is all but out on his feet. Oh good lord. Roger slumps the ground after a beating on the feet, and receives an absolutely brutal soccer kick to the head. He is out cold. A very, very brutal finish that is seldom seen these days. I know a lot of people love soccer kicks, but they are just about the most violent act you could ever imagine in a sanctioned sport. Roger was pretty much done before the kick landed, and it really was just the final nail in the coffin. That was ugly. Almost sad to see from a solid and exciting fighter like Huerta.

It's time for the final fight of the evening; Renato Sobral vs. Tastuya Mizuno. Interesting to see Babalu after a fair bit of time off. Mizuno comes out very aggressive. Too aggressive, in fact, as he follows Babalu to the ground, enters his guard, and very quickly gets armbarred. No real surprises here, but it was a bit quicker than I thought it would be. Nice to see Babalu pick up a win, though. I don't know who else is out there for him outside of Zuffa, but I don't really think he can compete at the highest level these days anyway, so he is a good name in a growing organization like One FC. Very nice submission, good win. Bbalu compares the win with losing his virginity again. Fair enough.

Very nice card, once again, from One FC, who have yet to disappoint. Really impressed with this organization, so far. I really hope they keep on putting on cards of this calibre. I'm sorry for this absurd amount of text, but I'm sure no one really read it anyway, so it's all good. I did warn you earlier that there would be a drunken wall of text.

UFC 147 just ended, and it's time to catch up on One FC, and the Soto/Matthysse card. Just threw it on, and it's always nice to hear the screaming pride lady. I love how they are introducing every fighter on the card in the introduction. That is one of the things about Pride that I miss. I don't know why, but it's always been something I have enjoyed. It makes each card feel like an individualistic event, I suppose. Although I don't like it, I really couldn't see the UFC adopting it. It just wouldn't work with their production.

First fight of the evening is between Quek Kim Hock and Peter Davis. I most certainly haven't heard of either of these gentlemen. I hear Renzo. It's always nice to hear that crazy bastard. Both guys cut promos claiming that they will win. I simply don't know who to believe. This fight proves to be a one sided beating for the Malaysian Peter Davis. He comes in utilizing his reach well, and quickly rocks Hock before pinning him against the cage with strikes that are mostly blocked. The legendary Matt Hume calls it off, perhaps a bit quickly, but whatever. I'm sure Davis was going to continue the beatdown.

We're off to an explosive start. Up next are two Brazilians: Marcos Escobar and Rodrigo Praxedes. In the first round, both fighters appear to be fairly evenly matched both on the feet and on the mat. Despite the back and forth action, it is a pretty clear round for Escobar, as he finishes in full mount, raining down blows. The second round is also very even until the last minute, where Escobsr again works his way to full mount and works his ground and pound. Hume appeared to be seconds away from stopping the fight, but Rodrigo survives to see the third. The third opens with a quick takedown from Escobar. He very quickly finds himself in half guard, where he snakes his arms around the neck and armpit of his opponent, securing a tight darce choke. It proves to be enough, as Rodrigo taps. A decent battle, with a nice submission finish.

Interestingly. during this fight, Renzo remarks that he will be returning to the ring. Anybody who watched the Hughes fight dreads seeing him back in the cage, but hey, he is a legend, and I suppose that entitles him to do whatever the **** he wants. I am sure he will get his ass kicked by any opponent that can even be mistaken for live. I don't look forward to his next fight.

The third fight is between two more guys that I have yet to ever see fight; Mitch Chilson and Al Lias Mansor. The fight opens up quickly with both fighters exchanging takedowns. Mansor appears more desperate for the fight to take place on the mat, but this proves to be a mistake as he gets sloppy and the Renzo Gracie bluebelt quickly works his way to back control and secures a tight rear naked choke. Pretty easy work for Mitch Chilson.

Thats a wrap for the prelims.

The first fight of the main card sees Brian Choi up against Arnaud Lepont. The fight opens with the two brawling like madmen before Choi secures a powerful double leg takedown. He stays sticky on top with a blanketing top game for the majority of the round before Yuji Shimada stands them back up. They brawl for the remainder of the round. Choi likely wins the round with his ground control. The second round opens with the two hugging and making out for a little bit before beginning to brawl again. Choi's wrestling proves to be the biggest difference between the two, as he spends the majority of round either inside of Lepont's guard landing meagre ground and pound, or Choi pinning him against the cage. Another round for Choi. They embrace again at the beginning of the first, as if this has been some sort of war. Choi takes him down again, but the tables are turned when Lepont goes for a guillotine. Choi defends well, but Lepont works his way to a very tight rear naked choke. A very nice come from behind victory for Lepont. Far from a great fight, but a nice finish nonetheless. He calls out Aoki in the post fight interview. Naturally, he would lose that fight, easily, but it makes me wonder if we will for sure see Aoki's next fight in One FC.

Next up is Bae Young Kwon vs Eric Kelly. They open up at a very high pace with Kwon scoring some nice takedowns, and Kelly playing excellent defence. As the round comes to a close, it becomes apparent that this is a clear striker vs. grappler match. Kelly does some good work in the final minutes, and it appears that his defence on the ground may be enough to get him through. The second round starts off as a continuation of the first. Kelly controls the standup, and Choi scores a takedown that he is able to do little with thanks to Kelly's defensive skill.I'm not sure whether Kelly's defence and scrambling is stunning at this point, or Young's ground work isn't as proficient as it appears, as he fairly easily gives up back control. The end of the round sees the fighter in a wild striking exchange that lands Kelly on Kwon's back. He sinks a rear naked choke, but is saved by the bell, similar to Mayhem vs. Shields. The third round is full of scrambles and submission attempts. It's hard to give either fighter the edge after the first four minutes. It's really a BJJ fan's dream. I feel as if the majority of the offence was done by Kwon, so I give him the edge, as the fights are not judged round by round like in North American, but rather as a fight as a whole. A fantastic battle between two skilled, yet unrefined competitors. The judges disagree with me, but **** it, I may even disagree with me at this point. No one is even reading this. **** you.

Now we have Gregor Gracie vs. Adam Shahir Kaydom. Gracie is obviously a submission specialist, but Kaydom also claims to be, so this may be an interesting one. Naturally, the vast majority of the first round takes place on the round, with both guys putting up defence, with Gregor getting the better of it with his back control and ground and pound. The second round opens up with Kaydom kicking Gracie directly in the ****. Fair enough. I think I may have fallen asleep for a little while here, but Gregor spent the majority of this round on top on the ground, and Adam finished up strong with retorted looking leg kicks, one after the other, in the last minute. The second round opens up on the feet, naturally, with Adam throwing a lot of kicks. Gregor seems to have gassed hard, and Renzo seems to have abandoned his commentary position, which I just noticed. Gregor looks like Mousasi, kind of, but a Mousasi that is far worse at fighting. At this point, I can't see Gregor securing any sort of submission, but he has controlled the majority of the fight, so he will likely get the decision if we make it that far. I would say that Kaydom is being more offensive from the bottom than Gracie from the top, and I hope that the judges note this as well. Gregor is gassed as **** at this point, lazily shooting for a takedown and getting reverse for the rest of the round. I give the fight to Kaydom. I just realized now that I have been calling him Kaydom this whole time despite his name being Kayoom. I will not be correcting this, **** you. The judges agree with me, and Kayoom takes the victory. I wouldn't say that this was a terrible fight, but probably the worst of the night, thus far.

I am sorry if you are actually reading this. It must be a mess. I think it changed to a straight up play by play at one point. That wasn't what I intended. I was just going to write a small note about each fight, but I seem to have abandoned that plan in place of this idiocy.

Now it's time for one of my favourite's in Masakazu Imanari as he takes on Leandro Issa. Who doesn't love a leg lock specialist? If you don't love a leg lock specialist, go **** yourself. Learn to enjoy better things.

Imanari comes out in his usual hands down, I don't give a ****, stance. The first few minutes has Issa controlling the action with low kicks before dropping Imanari with a big left hand. Issa stays in guard for the remainder of the round throwing the occasional big elbow, while Imanari is unable to get anything done from his guard. Imanari doesn't chance facial expressions, despite this. Again the round starts out with Issa throwing a lot of leg kicks, and actually dropping Imanari with one. Imanari isn't setting any of his striking up, and is simply throwing wild haymakers and stupid looking spinning back fists. So he kicks him the ****, instead. Issa scores a nice takedown that I am sure that Imanari is thankful for. Again he rains down nice elbows while Imanari is unable to get anything going. Imanari makes his way back to his feet, but in the closing seconds, he is dropped by a left hook. Things are looking grim. The third and final round is more of the same in the opening minutes, as Issa kicks the shit out of Imanari's leg. This is probably some sort of karmic payback for all of the legs that Imanari has injured throughout his career. Issa scored another nice takedown, but I doubt that his attempt was met with any real resistance. Imanari just can't get anything going, so far. Imanari tries to muster up his last bit of craziness and walks down Issa with wild hooks. He gets taken down again, and that's the end of the story. Issa's defence was too good for the leg lock specialist.

That one was disappointing. Oh well. I think there are only two more fights left.
tl;dr

Just kidding. Kudos for such an epic post.

Bibiano focused on One FC, explains why he didn't sign with the UFC

By Guilherme Cruz

Photo personnel file



Owner of two belts of the extinct Dream, in Japan, Bibiano Fernandes wants other title in Asia. The Brazilians is one of the new hires at One FC, event that came up with the intention of waking up the Asian market, and the fighter wants to be a part of it.



ďItís an event that needs to be watched, needs to grow too because that way the competition comes. UFCís going to win it all. Thereís no competition, none whatsoeverĒ, said Bibiano, on an exclusive interview with TATAME. ďI guess itíll grow, Iím sure of thatĒ.



The Jiu-Jitsu black belt is focusing on conquering his fourth MMA title, but still has no opponent set for his debut, scheduled for August 31st. ďOh man, Iíve fought the toughest guys from both feather and bantamweights. Iíll welcome whoever they ask me to fight against. Letís go to warĒ, warns.



Red below the complete interview, on which the athlete explains all the confusion about a possible hiring by the UFC.



What are the expectations for your One FC debut?



Iíve fought all my life in Japan. Most of my fans live there. I guess One FC is just an extension of Dream. Itís not Dream, but the guys there have been helping one another at One FC. If you really look at it, youíll see the guys that used to work on Dream here.



Do you think they learned their lessons and now their gathered to do it right this time at One FC?



One FC is One FC. They hired the good employees from Dream. They picked some people up and brought into their organization. I guess itís gonna grow. Actually, Iím pretty sure of it. I believe in them.



They releases the date you will debut but not who your opponent is. Do you know his name already?



Oh man, Iíve fought the toughest guys from both feather and bantamweights. Iíll welcome whoever they ask me to fight against. Letís go to war.



Howís their broadcasting system?



All I know itís on ESPN Asia. When I finish my fight at the 31st, Iíll call you and tell you what my impressions of the event are (laughs).



Do you think One FC will be a huge success in the Asian market?



Itís an event that needs to be watched, needs to grow too because that way the competition comes. UFCís going to win it all. Thereís no competition, none whatsoever. Even at my weight class, and I hope they hire good fighters in other classes too, but in all light divisions so things are balanced.



There was a surprise when UFC announced you signed in for the Canada event but days latter it was announced they let you go. Days later you said you didnít even sign that same contract. What really happened?



Apart from family, itíd be a great opportunity for Bibiano, but when you put the family in the picture itís not worth it. I donít fight for me. I have people who rely on me. Iíve built what I had to build in MMA. It can be many peopleís dream to fight in the UFC, but it ainít mine. Itís all business to me. Iíve dreamed about being a champion, I earned three belts: one in Canada and two in Japan. If you have a dream, keep dreaming. If you want to fight, keep on trying. But this Iíll tell you: worship yourself otherwise nobody else will. And itís not only on the fighting business, but in everything in life. People use you, use you, use you and them through you away like garbage.



MMA is getting big in Brazil. Do you want to fight here?



I dream on fighting in Brazil, of course. I want that. Iím an athlete and I like to compete. If it was at my hometown, Manaus, it would be even better. Fighting in front of my family and friends would be amazing but maybe in the future. We carry on and follow Godís plan.

Why is anyone sad Huerta is getting ****ed up?

He was never more than average.

If he wasn't good looking and hispanic, the UFC would've never given two shits about him.

That or they would've actually made him fight decent fighters from the start, and he would've gottin exposed earlier.

If you really want to see a horrific piece of shit, check out Never Back Down 2. It's hilariously bad.
