UFC 62 Recap

Liddell vs Sobral

Chuck Liddell Vs. Renato Sobral
With a first round TKO of Sobral, Chuck Liddell proves his supremacy in the UFC. Chuck Liddell is like a shark, he tastes blood and attacks his prey. In an earlier prediction I had it Liddell By KO in the second. I keep thinking that Chuck is just getting lucky, but every fight he seems to be getting stronger and more dominating. I thought Sobral would take the fight to the ground.

bonner vs griffin

Forrest Griffin Vs. Stephan Bonnar
In their first meeting I gave the fight to Bonnar. This fight went Griffins way. He showed he is one tough son of a ******. This match up is perfect for the UFC. Both fighters styles match up well. Neither one is a finisher, both are hard to submit, and they both have celebrity status from The Ultimate Fighter. I bet we will eventually see a third fight between these two. Score: Griffin, Bonnar, Griffin.

Josh Neer Vs. Nick Diaz
Both these fighters have defeated some powerful opponent’s. Nick Diaz proved he was the better fighter. I wasn’t surprised, Diaz gave Diego Sanchez a hell of a fight. He really impressed me in that fight. I didn’t think Diaz would submit Neer because his stand up was dominating the whole fight. The kamora was fierce. What a good way to win.

Cheick Kongo Vs. Christian Wellisch
I thought Wellisch had the arm bar sunk in . Kongo proved his skill by escaping the arm bar and making Wellisch pay with a barrage of punches and a bad ass knee. You have to love KO’s.

Hermes Franca Vs. Jamie Varner
What a brawl, Varner took an big knee and gassed out. Franca did good for only having two weeks to train. He probably could have KOed Varner earlier, but he wasn’t very accurate with his ground punches.
