UFC on FOX 16 Chicago Results: Dillashaw TKO’s Barao in the Fourth to retain Championship


The UFC came to Chicago for round two; in the main event it was  T.J. Dillashaw who faced Renan Barao for the 2nd time to see if he could reclaim what was once his, the championship Belt.

But it was again T.J.Dillashaw who, kept onto his belt and standing firm to the naysayers that he won the belt by a fluke last time. Diĺlashaw  held onto the championship belt by defending it from Renan Barao and stopping him in the Fourth Round via TKO, after being in complete control throughout the first three rounds.

In the co-main event we saw Miesha Tate take a unanimous decision over Jessica Eye, for which she will now face the winner of Ronda Rousey Vs. Bethe Corriea who settle their ‘beef’ on August 1st.  I’m sure we will all get to see a Rousey vs Tate Trilogy very soon.

KAUFMAN ‘DELIGHTED’ OPPONENT HAS BEEN FOUND!


It has been no real news, that Sarah Kaufman has been struggling to get a new opponent as of late, even going as far as creating the ‘cupcake’  instavideo to ‘call out’ Miesha Tate, to no avail.

Fast forward to last when Kaufman sent out the following tweet and instagram  message.

In the latest of athlete’s to take to Twitter, I came across UFC female Bantamweight athlete Sarah Kaufman who had this to say:

Although to get the full appreciation you will have to go to Sarah’s Instagram page as it contained a 15 second Instavideo.  I have attached three pictures from this video, which is also accompanied by some ‘fitting’ music.  Enjoy. 🙂

Guess we will have to wait and see how long Miesha is out for with her Injury from the weekend. If Miesha responds and of course if Sean Shelby is considering the match up at all.

UFC 183 DIAZ VS SILVA THE FULL RESULTS AND PICTURES


It was the Superfight we was all waiting to watch, UFC 183 Diaz vs Silva and I must admit, watching the five round fight, go five rounds, was something spectacular, in a good way!

Nick Diaz played his part perfectly, with a game plan at times that was just so ‘Nick Diaz’. Unfortunately it was not to be his night as Anderson Silva took the Unanimous Decision by the Judges.

Here are all the results from UFC 183 :
