This past Saturday UFC 130 took place and it was definitely what I expected and hoped for. The co main event of the night was between Frank Mir and Roy Nelson. All I got to say is Nelson is one tough dude for the beating he took but in the end it was Mir defeating Nelson by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-26). Mir has been pretty impressive as of late and I thinking he will be in the Heavyweight title picture again.
In the Main Event, Rampage Jackson took on Matt Hamill. Hamill was another one who I admired for taking the beating he did, but like Mir, Jackson defeated Hamill by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27). That’s two big wins for Quinton now and he’s got to be considered the number one contender at this point.
