(MW) Jeremy Horn vs Rousimar Palhares
rd.1 – Jeremy survived. Barely. He got suplexed and ground and pounded pretty badly.
rd.2 – Jeremy actually got the full mount on Palhares and went for an arm triangle that was pretty close. Horn did a lot better that round and Palhares is looking gassed but so is Horn.
rd.3 – Horn lands a good head kick but Palhares gets Horn back to the ground. Once on the ground though Palhares can do nothing to Jeremy and just lays on him for the majority of the time. Somewhat of a moral victory that Horn could survive. Palhares said he broke his hand in round one after the fight. Interesting to note that Horn came closer to winning by submission than Palhares.
Rousimar Palhares defeats Jeremy Horn by unanimous decision
(LHW) Mark Coleman vs Mauricio “Shogun” Rua
rd.1 – Phil Baroni is back in the corner of Coleman. Hold onto your hats. Coleman looks in great shape. Coleman got the take down right away and got some decent ground and pound. Shogun got back up. Coleman looking gassed got busted up by Shogun with punches and leg kicks. Coleman is all but done. But Coleman did land some punches.
rd.2 – Now Shogun is looking gassed as well. Can’t believe Shogun can’t finish him off. The fight looks in slow motion. Coleman got a couple of takedowns and the round ends with Coleman in Shogun’s omoplata attempt.
rd.3 – An embarrassing third round for both fighters. Both guys extremely gassed. Coleman actually was on top of Shogun for much of the round. Shogun threw a knee the ref thought was to the head while Coleman was down so the ref stands them up. This allows Shogun to deliver an uppercut and a combination that knocks Coleman down for a TKO.
Mauricio “Shogun” Rua defeats Mark “The Hammer” Coleman by TKO (strikes) in rd 3
Coleman is so exhausted after the fight he can barely talk. He sounds drunk. They did squash the beef after the fight. Coleman says, “Let’s do it again Shogun, it’s 1-1.” Please, for the love of all that’s holy UFC, do not EVER make this fight again. UFC is better than this. This is not 1994.
