Belcher d. Patrick Cote via choke in the second round
round: Belcher opens with several body kicks. Cote
keeps trying to punch but can't get past the kicks.
Cote takes down Belcher and works for a Kimura but
Belcher escapes. Belcher ends the round with some
punches. Close round, I'd give it to Cote.
round: They trade punches before Belcher pins Cote
against the fence. Cote takes Belcher down. Belcher
gets back up, picks up Cote and drops him in a face-first
piledriver. That gets the crowd fired up. Belcher
then chokes Cote out.
Matrione d. Kimbo Slice via TKO, second round
round: Kimbo rocks Mitrione with a right. Kimblo slams
him down and gets on top, but Mitrione almost locks
in a triangle. Slice escapes and both men are back

up after another triangle attempt. Mitrione gives
Kimbo a couple of body kicks and tries to slap on
an anaconda choke when the round ends. Round to Mitrione.
round: Kimbo looks gassed already and the round just
started. Mitrione sends Kimbo reeling with a punch.
Kimbo looks ready to quit. Two body kicks by Mitrione.
More punches and knees by Mitrione. Mitrione with
several unanswered blows until the ref finally stops
it. That should be more than enough to kill off any
remaining mystique surrounding Kimbo Slice.
Stephens d. Sam Stout by split decision

like Stephens might end it early, but Stout rallies
with some hard, low kicks. A hard left to the nose
has Stout bleeding. Stephens lands a hook. Stout ends
the round with a late flurry, but it's clearly Stephens'
round: Stephens knocks Stout down with a series of

lot of blood coming out of Stout's nose. Another round

Stephens should win the fight.

Koscheck works for the choke but Daley escapes. Daley
gets up and kicks Koscheck in the head when Koscheck
is still down. End of the round. Slow fight. Round
round: Koscheck takes Daley down again but doesn't
really do much with him. Very slow round as Koscheck
keeps trying to get past Daley's defense and can't.
Round to Koscheck.
round: Daley opens with some punches, but Koscheck
keeps circling around, as if he is trying to just
run out the clock. Koscheck takes Daley down and throws
some punches. Now some knees. And the fight is over.
Daley sucker punches Koscheck after the fight. Now
Dana White is screaming at Daley. Bye bye Daley.
are 30-27, 30-27, 30-27 Koscheck.
Rua d. Lyoto Machida via TKO in first round to win
the light-heavyweight title

from Shogun. Machida takes him down but Shogun escapes
and pops right back up. More knees by Shogun. Shogun
rocks Machida with a punch, knocks him down and lands
several unanswered blows before the ref stops it.
113 will be quickly upon us this weekend May 8th,
2010. I thought Id send out a quick reminder
and an highlight some of the matches. Im not
sure about you, but I seem to have to constantly reminded
of these dates or these events will just pass me by.
Anyways, the last event for WEC 48 was really cool
and featured some great bouts. I hope UFC 113 will
do the same.
The big fight of the night is the re-match Machida
vs. Rua for the Light Heavyweight Championship belt.
I see things going a little better this time around
for Machida. Last fight he got beat up a bit but retained
the belt on a split decision. This time he knows hell
have to be the aggressor and Rua will get caught with
his chin out. My pick Machida KO 3rd round.
The fight between Koscheck vs. Daley should be fight
of the night and all stand up. Koscheck the more experienced
and superior wrestler has indicated hell stand
and bang with Daley. The brash, cocky Daley has secured
a staggering 78% of his 23 wins by knockout. "If
he wants to stand-up, that's easy", says Daley.
"If you're gonna stand up with me, you're gonna
get knocked out--I've said it time and time again."
These guys dont like each other now and Koscheck
is going to hate him later after he gets KOd.
My pick Daley KO 2rd round.
Another potential KO bout is the Kimbo vs Mitrione.
Kimbo should be vastly improved skill wise from his
showing against Houston Alexander over 6 months ago.
Hes got the right work ethic and training now
and should be a force at this weight class. Mitrione
was one of the better athletes on the TUF 10 season
and should be as he did play in the NFL. He only got
one of two fights under him so I dont give him
much of a chance. My pick Kimbo KO 2rd round.
One last bout which could also vie for fight of the
night is the Stout vs. Stephens one. Stout is one
of the fiercest brawlers in the UFC and among all
the Canadian fighters on this card hes the one
with the most skill. Stout made his pro debut at the
age of 19 and has since racked up a slew of victories.
Stout will surely be a crowd favorite as he defends
his home turf against human pitbull Jeremy "Lil'
Heathen" Stevens at UFC 113 in Montreal. If both
fighters' past performances are any indication, then
this fight could be worth the price of admission all

Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed
martial arts (MMA) organization, currently recognized
as the largest MMA promotion in the world. The
UFC is headquartered in Las
Vegas, Nevada and is owned and operated by
UFC was started as a tournament to find the world's
best fighters irrespective of their style, and
was based upon Brazilian vale tudo fighting. Although
there was a limited number of rules, the UFC was
initially known as no holds barred fighting and
contests were often violent and brutal. Early
UFC fights were less sport than spectacle, which
led to accusations of brutality and "human
cock fighting" by opponents. Political pressures
eventually led the UFC into the underground, as
pay-per-view providers nixed UFC programming,
nearly extinguishing the UFC's public visibility.
political pressure mounted, the UFC reformed itself,
slowly embracing stricter rules, becoming sanctioned
by state athletic commissions, and marketing itself
as a legitimate sporting event. Dropping the no
holds barred label and carrying the banner of
mixed martial arts, the UFC has emerged from its
political isolation to become more socially acceptable,
regaining its position in pay-per-view television.
a cable television deal and expansion into new
markets within the United States and Europe, the
UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge
in popularity, along with greater mainstream media
coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on Spike
TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other
countries worldwide. (Credit:
