Damacio Page dominates at WEC 39

Page stunned Galvao with a right hand and never let up punishing him with hard punches to earn a quick knockout and his second win in the WEC promotion.

Mike Brown post-WEC 39 interview

WEC Featherweight Champion, Mike Brown, gives his thoughts on defeating Leonard Garcia Sunday night at WEC 39 in Corpus Christi. Brown addresses the issue that people may have considered him a “fluke” champion and that maybe it was just a lucky shot against Urijah Faber that won him the title.

Mike Thomas Brown is for real

Mike Thomas Brown did tonight at WEC 39 what no other man has been able to do, he finished Leonard “Bad Boy” Garcia. Not only did he finish him, he demolished him in the first round of a five round featherweight title fight.

Garcia was coming off a very impressive win over Jens Pulver and his only three losses have come by decision to fighters like Cole Miller and a war that people still talk about that made the cover of Sport’s Illustrated with Roger Huerta. Garcia was a slight underdog coming into WEC 39 but probably no one expected the fight to end so quickly. He’s known for his toughness, he’s known for slugging it out, being able to take punishment, and to keep going.

Marcus Hicks vs. Rob McCullough: The great fight that almost was

Marcus Hicks vs. Rob McCullough; the fight started off very slow with both guys circling and circling and circling and circling, throwing feints, and jabs that weren’t meant to land. For some reason, they would not engage each other. This is often called the “feeling out” period, except their “feeling out” period lasted the entire first round.

The second round from Hicks vs. McCullough was an amazing round. Hicks landed a big overhand punch that dropped McCullough, instead of going for ground and pound to try and finish him off, Hicks tried to secure a guillotine choke to submit the former lightweight champion. McCullough survived and Hicks found himself underneath his opponent eating a few punches.
