Ronda Rousey defeats Bethe Correia

Discussion in 'Sports' started by PurpleFox, Aug 2, 2015.

  1. Ronda Rousey defeats Bethe Correia
    Well, that was fast. As expected, Ronda Rousey kicked Bethe Correia’s . She beat the Brazilian trash-talker in the first round not via her famous armbar, but with punches. Correia went down in the first round. Rousey won via knockout in 34 seconds.

    Mauricio Rua defeats Antonio Rogerio Nogueira

    If you felt tired watching the penultimate bout of the night, think of how Mauricio Ruo and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira felt. Rio is an hour ahead of the Eastern time zone, so it was approaching 2 a.m. by the time these two guys, who met 10 years go, made it to the Octagon. Despite the time, however, these two fighter gave it all they got, going all three rounds in a match that looked like anyone’s game. There were blows, body strikes, take downs, submission attempts. Rua, who goes by the name Shogun, quite possibly even broke his ankle, but neither fighter ever gave up. After three rounds, Shogun won via unanimous decision.

    Glaico Franca defeats Fernando Bruno

    Glaico Franca provided the night’s first win via submission by putting Fernando Bruno down with a rear *phcorner* choke in the third round. That ending seemed inevitable, however, as Bruno seemed to lose all steam during the second round. After the bell rang before the third, he even wandered into the wrong corner. (Awkward!) Bruno wasn’t a total layup, however. He got a few strikes in and fought well enough in the clinch to tire out Franca, but it wasn’t nearly enough to stop Franca’s overall momentum.

    Reginaldo Vieira defeats Dileno Lopes

    Got blood? Both Reginaldo Vieira and Dileno Lopes do, or did, rather. See, after three rounds, a whole bunch of both of theirs was splattered across the ring like a Jackson Pollock painting. This bantamweight bout didn’t start off so bloody, however. The first round was a battle of back-and-forth guillotine attempts, none of which the fighters could lock in. And so they both changed their strategies to punch without abandon. When the bell rang after the third round, the two were just hammering each other without really even looking at where their fists were flying. Vieira may have won by unanimous decision, but to a lot of spectators, the whole thing looked like a tie. It helps that the two ended with a hug.

    Stefan Struve defeats Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

    In Vegas’s view, this was one of the most evenly matched fights of the night, although looking at the fighters side-by-side, you’d never know it. Dutch fighter Stefan “Skyscraper” Struve (29-7-0) is 6-foot-11-and-half. He’s also just 27 years old. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (34-9-1), meanwhile, stands 6-foot-3 and is 39 years old. Struve didn’t take full advantage of his reach advantage in the first round, but he revved it up in the second and third, landing almost twice as many strikes as his opponent. Nogueira managed to get one takedown in, but he couldn’t keep Struve on the ground long enough to make it matter. Struve won the non-title heavyweight fight by unanimous decision after a full three-round bout.

    Antonio Silva defeats Soa Palelei

    Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva (18-7) definitely entered this non-title heavyweight bout looking like the more fired-up fighter. He literally ran to the Octagon, leaving his entourage in his dust. But he had something to prove — Silva went in the underdog against Soa Palelei (22-4) and he clearly was excited to prove the odds wrong — just like he did when he beat favorite Fedor Emelianenko in a 2011 Strikeforce fight. And well, history did repeat itself, but even fiercer this time. Early in the second round, Silva managed to pin Palelai against the cage and a few solid uppercuts and knee strikes later, referee John McCarthy stopped the fight 41 seconds in to declare Silva the winner by TKO.

    Claudia Gadelha defeats Jessica Aguilar

    Claudia Gadelha (12-1-0) went in as the favorite against Jessica Aguilar (19-4-0) in this 115-pound non-title fight and she proved why just about as soon as it started. The fight got off to a bloody start with Gadelha quickly taking control and possibly breaking Aguilar’s nose, which painted the American’s face red. Aguilar went the distance, however, lasting a full three rounds, even getting in some solid strikes in the third. In the end, however, it wasn’t quite enough to overcome Gadelha’s superior moves. She landed more strikes and completed four successful takedowns compared to Aguilar’s zero. Unsurprisingly, Gadelha won by unanimous decision to make her record 13-1, and afterward, the fighter rightfully demanded — in two languages not less — that UFC chief Dana White give her a title shot next against current strawweight champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk.
