Matt Brown VS Jordan Mein

My only previous knowledge of these two fighters are their last fights. Though this only lasted 6 minutes, it was awesome. Brown’s straight right changed the momentum of this fight more than once but Jordan Mein will definitely be something big one day. Matt Brown seems to destroy up and coming fighters who aren’t ready for his style. I can’t wait for both of their next fights.

Nate Diaz VS Josh Thomson

Thomson’s head kicks seems to be tailor made for Diaz’s hand positioning. The extended right hand and lowered left allowed Thomson to throw his right head kick with full force.Three head kicks later with the third one landing solidly and Diaz was somewhere else. I guess the third time’s the charm. Thomson took this without question by a very nice TKO. Excellent UFC re-debut.

Frank Mir VS Daniel Cormier

Round 1 had Cormier one small step ahead of Mir the whole time, which was enough to take the round. I dont think Mir expected Cormier to be as fast as he was. Round 2 is the same story as round 1 with Frank Mir visibly gassed in the end. Mir had some striking success in Round 3 but as soon as the clinch was initiated, it was all Daniel Cormier. Cormier outclasses Frank Mir 30-27 and Mir goes back down the ladder. It seems to me that Mir doesnt have a very good fight IQ.

Benson Henderson VS Gilbert Melendez

I originally thought this would be complete leg kick and wrestling domination via Henderson,it was not. The first round has Gil landing some nice shots and catching Benson’s mid kicks. The 2nd round had pretty much even striking. If I had to pick a Round winner, it’d be Melendez. The next 3 rounds were Henderson slowly getting the better of Melendez and landing more significant strikes giving him the split decision win at UFC on FOX 7.
