This turned out to be one of UFC’s better cards in the past months. The fights were exciting, and only one of the televised fights went to decision.

Kenny Florian Def. Takanori Gomi (Submission: Choke)

– Gomi’s ground game is amateurish at best. Gomi, is this so hard to figure out? Go practice BJJ for a year. To top it off, Florian was picking Gomi apart in the stand-up. It was an embarrassing night for one of Pride’s top fighter.

Roy Nelson Def. Stefan Struve (TKO)

– Good stand-up by Nelson, he had to step in deep to get through Struve’s long reach. He caught him with an over-hand right, and the rest is history.

Jorge Rivera Def. Nate Quarry (TKO)

– An entertaining fight, both fighters were willing to slug it out. Rivera came out on top as he rocked Quarry towards the end of the first. He finished him in the beginning of the 2nd Rd.

Ross Pearson Def. Dennis Siver (UD)

– This fight went to a decision, but this was a good fight. Both fighters came to fight, and entertained the fans. Pearson was a better wrestler, he was able to take Siver down over and over again.

Rousimar Palhares Suspended by the New Jersey Athletic Commission

palhares MMA Weekly Report   Short and Sweet

Palhares held on to the heel hook for too long. Tomasz Drwal was tapping, and the referee stepped in, but Palhares did not let go. The New Jersey Athletic Commission decided to suspend Palhares for 90 days. This may seem like a punishment, but it’s not since most UFC fighters don’t fight every 3 months. But, this will go on his record, and I’m sure that he’ll be more careful next time.

Here’s one of his older fight, he yanked it hard, even when the ref stepped in.
