UFC 169: Renan Barao vs Uriah Faber
 
1 Attachment(s)
Alright... Thought I'd get a headstart on this thread, seeing how I fell down on the job for the free fights last week (UFC on FOX 10)! :lol:

Some great action on this one! I'm stoked for the Mir/Overeem match up. Both have losing streaks that include vicious KO's. Mir has the better ground game and underrated stand up while the Reem can deliver heavy handed punishment, but he is a smaller guy since stopping his regime of roids!

CRAZY headkick KO by "Cowboy" Cerrone! Cool as can be and he acted with class in not punishing him while unconscious!

Yeah, that was classy. He could have rained a few blows down for sure but there was no need. He was out!

I like Faber but I think he gets beat tonight.

Faber has lost to Barao before and probably will again, though he could steal a split decision. I've only seen Uriah finished one time, in the WEC vs Mike Brown. Barao has all the tools and should keep the strap but I'm rooting for the "California Kid"!

Last pre lim of the night! John Makdessi (155) vs. Alan Patrick (155.5)

Rd 1- Patrick comes in strong but can't take John down. Misses a spinning back fist but is showing more offense than John at this point. Patrick misses a capouero kick! Makers so is mainly countering and defends another takedown. Clinched on the cage to finish the round.

Patrick 10-9

Rd 2- Makdessi defends another TD but eats a good right from Patrick. John holding the center of the Octagon but not much going on that round. I want that 5 minutes of my life back! Lol

Rd 3- Patrick much more aggressive this round. Patrick drills john in the chops with a left foot but minimal reaction from Makdessi. Both exchanging kicks and Patrick gets knocked down from a teep to the 'nads... Ouch. Again Patrick attempts a throw but Makdessi defends with a good whizzer.

I'm calling Patrick the winner, 29-28

The judges agree... Patrick wins via unan decision

Main card is on! First up, Abel Trujillo (155.5) vs. Jamie Varner (156)

Varner has fought for the title before. He is a beast...

Re: UFC 169: Renan Barao vs Uriah Faber
 
Rd 1- Varner comes on strong and lands some early combos. Trujillo stands and swings, both in the pocket. Varner throws Trujillo down and takes his back and works to a north south choke position. Varner squeezing but Abe isn't doing any movement. Varner mounts him and loses the choke. Back on the feet they both land hard shots and Trujillo staggers Varner but eats a couple himself. Big knee by Abe to end the round.

Varner gets round 10-9

Re: UFC 169: Renan Barao vs Uriah Faber
 
Rd 2- great action as both guys land heavy shots, both get staggered. Now Varner is teeing off on Trujillo against the cage but Abe continues to throw! Trujillo puts Varner to sleep with a right cross to the beak!!! Varner drops in a heap at 2:34 of round 2, Trujillo wins by KO

That's 8 wins in 9 fights by Trujillo, all by finish.

Rd 1- Lineker counters a punch by getting a double leg takedown and is in guard but gets swept. Now Lineker has a deep heel hook in but let's it go. Gets it again but they both get up to the feet. Lineker taken down and is in half guard trying a kimura from the bottom.

Lineker 10-9

Re: UFC 169: Renan Barao vs Uriah Faber
 
Rd 2- flurries from both fighters and Lineker defends a TD attempt. Lineker is cornering his opponent and throwing strong combos. Now he defends a double and both on their feet again. Lineker countering off of strong leg/hand combos of the Russian!

Lineker 10-9

Rd 3- Lineker gets back tripped to the mat and let's the Russian get side control. And he promptly gets pounded in the ribs by big elbows. Lineker still on bottom but defending well, though he can't get up yet. Now he's up... And the fight ends with an attempted heel hook submission and some showboating by Lineker!

I call a decision to who I thought was Lineker, but it was the Russian! So all the info above is correct if you switch the names.

Note to self... Slow down on the craft beer! Lol

Now, the heavyweights! Mir vs Overeem!!

Rd 1- the Reem cuffs Mir but no damage. The Reem drops Mir! Starts G&P and ties up Mirs arm but Frank gets to his feet. Now clinching, Mir drops into guard and is weathering some moderate striking from Reem.

Overreem takes the round, 10-9
