UFC 210 RESULTS
LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
(C) CORMIER vs JOHNSON 2
Take Down + Trip + On Top + Hammer + Punches + Choke = Game over.
Almost two years of wait, and this is what we get? As it happens almost always the more you expect the least it is at best, and this time it was no different.
CORMIER – THE MEAN MACHINE
DC (38) is one of those guys who makes you pay for your weakness, no matter how much strong points you have in your arsenal. That’s what happened again, even after losing the 1st round and getting his nose reshaped (broken), middle of the second round, Rumble was taken down, tumbled and made to tap bringing memories of their previous encounter, it seemed as of nothing had changed and all were watching the same fight again.
‘Johnson The Rumble’ was on a Ruthless role, knocking whatever he faced in the octagon to the floor, but as they say someone somewhere has your number and this time was no different and he experienced what he had been dishing in last 3 fights, since loosing to DC, when last time (May 23rd, 2015) they tested each other’s might.
Was the loss too much to digest or he did it in heat of the moment with too many emotions, would the decision be the same if the fight outcome was different only he and his team know we can only dissect.
Hopefully, Rumble takes time and reflects on his decision because of the too good a champion and age on his side (31) to leave on a loosing note is just not acceptable for the scariest artist in the octagon.
FACE IN THE CROWD
Hope DC gets his wish?
MIDDLE WEIGHT DIVISION
CHRIS WIDMAN (4) VS GEGARD MOUSASI (5)
Stats don’t lie, and that’s what GEGARD has going for him if his career is analyzed as time goes by, 50th match of his career at just 31 shows his talent and perseverance.
Coming into this fight, once again he was not expected to win from his more celebrated opponent, but how to turn the tables, this fight turned out to be the perfect example.
Former champion Wideman must be shattered man
after the controversial loss which later turned out to be genuine as the replays showed, but that’s how sport and life are in general, once a king, now a popper what with third straight loss putting a question mark on his getting a title shot.
It seemed both the Co-main events first rounds were where eventual losers turned out Victor’s only to experience heartbreak in the subsequent round and initial expectations went for a toss.
Octagon can be a harsh place and anything can happen within a fraction of a second as Weidman found out after he took the upper hand by two takedowns in the round one but as the second round was rolling a knee in the head, doctors intervention and rest is history.
