Nogueira reclaims dominance at UFC 102

UFC 102 didn’t leave my disappointed Saturday Night. The long awaited fight between Randy Couture and Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira didn’t let down at all. But before I get to that lets talk about a few other fights. For example Todd Duffee knocked Tim Hague in seven seconds a new UFC record. Hague is from Calgary, Alberta Canada and now might just be as famous as Bret Hart. Gabriel Gonzaga got back into the win column with a victory against Chris Tuchscherer. Brandon Vera defeated Krzysztof Soszynski in a good three round battle. Also Nate Marquardt defeated Demian Maia in 21 seconds which shocked me because Maia is a really good fighter and was undefeated up until that point. And what about Keith Jardine getting beat by Thiago Silva in 95 seconds. I thought for sure that fight was going three rounds with as many 3 round fights Jardine has had.

The finally the battle of two legends, Couture vs. Nogueira. The fight didn’t disappoint but it was mainly dominated by Nogueira. Couture did counter a lot of Nogueira’s submission attempts which kept him in the fight for the whole duration of it. I have a lot of respect for both fighters. With this victory Nogueira is probably next in line for Lesnar that is unless Shane Carwin somehow beats Lesnar at UFC 106 which I doubt will happen. UFC 103 is September 19th so I will be back then with more UFC news. The Ultimate Fighter starts September 16th and It’s going to be great. Stay tuned for more…
