Default UFC 159: Jones vs Sonnen

Here we go!! Tonight's card has some great match ups on it but the main event isn't one of those But it still may be entertaining. We all know anything can happen in the Octagon, but Vegas feels that it wont be a contest, giving Jones the advantage -1100/+700 over Sonnen. That means if you bet on Jones you would need to lay down $1100(!) to get back $100 in profit, but if you bet on Sonnen you would get back $700 for a $100 bet.

Also, after not making weight and forfeiting 20% of his purse, Nick Catone was hospitalized for dehydration and his bout with James head was cancelled. Head will still receive his money to show.

So, the initial 2 bouts are on Facebook at 6:30 pm, followed by prelims on FX at 8 pm. The main PPV card kicks off at 10 pm. See you there!

MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET)
Jon Jones (205) vs. Chael Sonnen (205)
Michael Bisping (186) vs. Alan Belcher (185)
Roy Nelson (258) vs. Cheick Kongo (237)
Phil Davis (205) vs. Vinny Magalhaes (205.5 )
Jim Miller (155) vs. Pat Healy (155.5)
PRELIMINARY CARD (FX, 8 p.m. ET)
Johnny Bedford (136) vs. Bryan Caraway (136)
Ovince St. Preux (206) vs. Gian Villante (206)
Sara McMann (134) vs. Sheila Gaff (133)
Rustam Khabilov (156) vs. Yancy Medeiros (155.5)
PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook, 6:30 p.m. ET)
Leonard Garcia (145) vs. Cody McKenzie (145)
Nick Catone (173)* vs. James Head (170.25)
Kurt Holobaugh (145) vs. Steven Siler (145.25)
* Catone will not weigh-in again. He has been fined 20% of his purse, which will go to Head. (this fight has been cancelled as noted above)

It seems like Bisping continues to have a problem being civil. He does tend to back it up, though. I have begrudgingly given him his due respect (gggrrrrrrr!!) as a fighter... dammit!

It does look like Cody McKenzie has ridden the back of Leonard Garcia almost half of the first round. Looking for the RNC but Garcia is defending... McKenzie also has a body lock so Garcia isn't going anywhere.

Second round went pretty much the same way...

Now it's Bedford vs Carraway.

Carraway throwing a lot of left hooks out of the gate. Carraway gets behind Bedford and takes him to the mat. Doling out punishment. Bedford now up and out, and pressing the fight. He lands some on Carraway but then he gets taken down. End of round one.

Round 2- trading small combos, Bedford lands some nice blows on Carraway against the fence. Talk of Carraway may be fighting with and injured right hand. Carraway gets another TD and passes to side control momentarily, now half guard. Bedford scrambles and throws upkicks as round ends.

Round 3- trade kicks without landing, Bedford again lands near cage. Carraway turns and gets takedown but Bedford trying a choke then armbar attempts off his back. Slow work on the ground here, one minute left. Carraway looking for guillotine and gets it after mounting! Finish for Carraway I've Bedford by guillotine choke in 3rd round!

Default Re: UFC 159: Jones vs Sonnen

it's a girlfight! McMann vs Gaff

McMann is a silver medalist in 2004 Olympics and Gaff has finished all 10 of her victories...

McMann is out of Gaffney, SC!!

Rd1- McMann takes down Gaff immediately! How do you do that knowing she is a wrestler? SM throwing body shots on ground. Gaff hanging on for dear life... Doing nothing offensively is Gaff, now back to the feet. Now Gaff throwing knees to body against cage. McMann now getting pummeled by McMann and the fight is stopped round 1 for TKO via ground and pound for Sara McMann!

Next up is Ovinse St. Preaux (former UT football player) vs Gian Villante at light heavyweight...

Rd 1- both start with hard kicks and GV going for TD but can't finish. OSP fights off of cage and throws some southpaw lefts. Nice combo by OSP and now has hurt GV! OSP can't capitalize on it and back to midle of octagon. Struggling against cage GV throws an elbow after defending many TD attempts. End round 1.

Wow, the ref really screwed up by not letting the fighter know what the rules are.

rd 2- GV catches OSP with big kick. GV with a lot of low kicks from left and right and OSP looked gassed.

Start of third round and GV gets poked in eye, but the ref asks him if he can see the fighter says no. End of fight!!

Dumbass ref should know immediately after a poke the fighter can't see but if given a few moments it could clear up!

Next Yancey Moderos vs Rusta Havilav (?), the suplex king!

Rd 1- Moderos with better striking so far but no damage done. Havilav takes back and tries a duplex but misses. Moderos hurts his thumb and the fight is called due to a thumb injury... Winner is Havalov. WTF?!

Thank God Jon Jones won. I hate Sonnen. Then after the fights over with, Jon realizes his foot is all janked up and still does the interview while they are putting his foot back together. Dudes a beast.

I like Sonnen. He is a modern day Ali but without the fighting ability. I think that is what annoys people the most about him. He can't back up his words. He is a promoter first and fighter second. Honestly, he would be better off in the WWE.

Jon Jones is my favorite fighter in the UFC so I was happy with how dominate he was. I knew it was going to be that way. The man in my opinion is the best P4P fighter in MMA and if they ever make a Super Fight between him and Anderson Silva you will see that first hand. Silva has the striking advantage and speed but I don't think he is far enough ahead of Jones in those categories to counteract the things Jones has over him. Size, Strength and Wrestling ability.

I question if he would be able to beat Silva.

however, there is another "super fight" that I would be interested in seeing Jones lose.......I mean participate in. Jon Jones vs Cain Velasquez
