UFC 150 Results/Meds/Bonuses/Salaries/Gate

UFC 150 was ‘like WHOA son’. Seriously, like WHOA. Nik Lentz looked like he dropped from LW to beast mode. Erik Perez served notice all over Ken Stone, the Bantamweights have some real competition. Michael Kuiper and Jared Hamman put on an entertaining back and forth punch fest then Dennis Bermudez outlasted Tommy Hayden’s submission attempts to come back in the second and drop him before slapping on a tight standing guillotine.

On the Main card Max Holloway showed Justin ‘the white anderson silva’ Lawrence just what it means to be Bas Rutten’d. Now, we aren’t being racist here, ‘The White Anderson Siva’ is something people have been calling Justin for sometime, due to his training at Blackhouse with Anderson and his accurate striking. Unfortunately for him, Holloway was able to figure out his range and timing in the later part of round 1, giving him a noticeable edge as round 2 started. Yushin Okami bounced from defeat and a first round that we thought was gonna be his 3rd loss in a row by putting it to Buddy Roberts for the entire 2nd round before picking up the TKO. Jake Shields is unstoppable, he’s a machine that just keeps moving forward, grinding you down like a ped egg on your calloused feet. Shields isn’t the prettiest fighter, but his never quit attitude serves him well and gave him the hard fought W over a clearly frustrated Ed Herman. Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone. Donald ‘MotherF23kin Cowboy’ Cerrone! What can we say? Melvin Guillard made every mistake possible here, he came in overweight, then when he had Cerrone out on his feet, he reset, giving Cerrone the opportunity to fire off a head kick which wobbled Guillard, he then followed that with a straight right to put Melvin out. Cerrone won by KO after being almost completely out on his feet. It was the most exciting 1 minute 16 seconds of the entire night! The main event saw another controversial decision in the career of Frankie Edgar. On our scorecards, we gave it to Frankie. We do understand how Benson got the nod. It’s a controversial decision, but one we are okay with, since the winner has to fight Nate Diaz, and we would rather see Bendo lose to Nate than Frankie.

Two fight cards in a row have been spectacular, next up is Rousey vs. Kaufman…oh is that gonna be a fun card!
