UFC FIGHT NIGHT 59 BOSTON – MY WINNERS


 

UFC Fight Night 59, Boston lived up to the hype from the very first fight on FIGHT PASS, for me though the pure transitions, fluidity and skill shown of his Jiu-Jitsu in the aired Prelim fights on Fox Sports 1 was Charles Rosa, to me it was so awesome to watch. With an array of submission attempts and one step ahead I felt, it was beautiful, with a tight D’arce choke sunk in the third round.

Another Prelim fight for which I personally enjoyed every single minute was Johnny Case, another example of beautiful short elbows (yes I love using my elbows too), amongst a great winning fight.

 

Paddy Holohan Weigh in
Paddy Holohan Weigh in

Patrick Holohan is always impressive, especially with his ground game, he came out fast, with intent on finishing Shane Howell within the first round. He almost succeeded several times with a rear naked choke, but credit where credit due, Shane Howell is tough, durable and managed to escape Paddy’s rear naked choke in the last ten seconds of the first round to end up on top. Although it was a one sided ‘beating’ for Shane, his skills on the ground amazed alot of people to escape several of Paddy’s Chokes.

Cathal Pendred and Sean Spencer Face Off
Cathal Pendred and Sean Spencer 

 

Wow is all I can say at the beginning of Cathal Pendred’s fight! Who else saw Sean Spencer  knee (accidently) Cathal when he was on the ground at 2 mins 32 seconds of the first round? Cathal clearly stated ‘woah, hang on’ but even the commentators by passed the incident and carried on commentating about the ‘over hand right punches’ that were then connecting with Cathal after that incident by Sean Spencer!

On the flipside of this, I feel Sean Spencer did a great job of working his boxing skills, Octagon control, damage and therefore I did not see what the judges saw (good job I am not a judge), then again I do not think I am alone in saying this!

Uriah Hall and Ron Stallings Face Off
Uriah Hall and Ron Stallings Face Off

I have to mention Ron Stallings for taking this fight against Uriah Hall on five days notice, not many athlete’s go ahead once it is fight week when it comes to Uriah Hall so full props to Ron. Uriah Hall is a beast on his feet and has a very nasty ground and pound game for which we saw again Sunday.

The below picture was taken straight after his fight with Uriah Hall and shows the Ground and Pound damage by the fighter.

Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone and Benson Henderson Face Off
Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and Benson Henderson 

The Co-Main event Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone vs Benson Henderson. What can one say. Cerrone is definitely in his prime and Henderson has been on the end of some shocking decisions as of late, but he will be back to winning ways I feel very soon. Again I did not see what the judges saw in this fight and I am sure I am not the only one!

Conor McGregor
Conor McGregor

Conor McGregor lived up to every bit of the hype, starting off with ‘flipping the bird’ at Dennis Siver as he did not touch gloves. Siver managed to keep his composure all week and not let McGregor get into his head one bit (unlike most of McGregor’s previous opponents).

McGregor did not dispose of Siver within the two minutes as he previously predicted, but he did dispose of him in the second round, convincingly. Next for McGregor is the featherweight champion Jose Aldo either in Las Vegas or Croke Park in Dublin.
