What a night of fighting it was. We started off with the finals of The Ultimate Fighter.
Ed Herman vs. Kendall Grove
What a fight, Herman and Grove pounded it out for three strait rounds. I think Herman was cheated, he controlled Grove all three rounds except for the end of the third round when Grove had the advantage. Herman proved to me and the UFC, that he can be a strong competitor in the UFC. Grove still needs some work, but he has potential. Oh well you can’t let it go to the judges. Both fighter received UFC contracts.
Michael Bisping vs. Josh Haynes
This ended just like I thought it would. Bisping dominated the fight with his raw skill. Josh Haynes has the heart and will, but doesn’t have the skill of Bisping. Bisping did look a little less cut then he did in the semifinals.
Kenny Florian vs. Sam Stout
Florian came out and floored Stout taking him to the ground and submitting him via the rear naked choke. Stout was shocked and confused. Florian proved he is a serious contender in the newly formed lightweight division.
Keith Jardine vs. Wilson Gouveia
Jardine pull out a unanimous decision over Wilson Gouveia. Jardine started out slowly in the first round, taking a lot of leg kicks. Jardin pressed the actions in the second and third rounds. Gouveia talked shit the whole fight. There’s nothing I hate more then a talk shittier that is not even wining the fight.
Matt Hamill vs. Jesse Forbes
Matt Hamill was given the chance to show off his skills. He was far more energetic then he was on The Ultimate Fighter. He came out and boxed Forbes and pounded him. When he took him to the ground, Hamill continued to punch Forbes. This was a good showing for Matt Hamill and I look forward to seeing him fight in the future. I am looking forward for Ultimate Fight Night 4 this Wednesday.
