UFC on FX Alves vs. Kampmann Results/Gate/Meds/Salaries/Bonuses/Ratings

UFC on FX2 in which we saw a veteran snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, while his opponent kept his wits and pulled out a much needed last minute hail mary win, 4 of the best flyweights in the world (well, maybe 3) fight for a belt they won’t get to see for quite sometime, a controversial decision victory followed by a controversial draw, math at its elementary finest, and the introduction of an Australian beast. Again? You didn’t watch? It was ‘free’ if you had cable, and you still didn’t watch…shame on you.

Kampman and Alves was a solid fight all the way up to Alves going for a takedown and losing a fight he had clearly won on the scorecards by guillotine choke with less than a minute to go. Joseph Benavidez put a spectacular KO on Yasuhiro in all of 11 seconds, securing his spot in the Flyweight final. Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall put on the FOTN, seriously, it was great. I had Ian McCall wining, but at the least I felt he deserved a 4th round. Unfortunately due to some rudimentary math skills or lack therein, the fight was incorrectly awarded to Demetrious, robbing us of what surely would have been a spectacular 4th round. Ian McCall proved to everyone that he is the ‘elite’ of the Flyweight division, and I fully expect him to take the ‘W’ when he rematches Mighty Mouse. James Te Huna showed us just how scary he can be, handing Aaron Rosa a TKO loss, Rosa looked good regardless, Te Huna is scary. Anthony Perosh and Neck Penner put on an good back and forth right up until Perosh TKO’d Penner. Steven Siler has now beaten both Miller brothers and looked good doing it. Andrew Craig gave a great performance defeating Kyle Noke after a rocky start. Expect Craig to improve as he gets more cage time. TJ Waldburger put a Jiu Jitsu clinic on defeating Hecht in the first minute of round 1 by armbar. Daniel Pineda mad a statement in the FW division with a beautiful triangle armbar over Makens Semerzier. Despite the snafu with the Flyweight Tournament, the show was solid and we have some fighters to keep our eyes on, not to mention a great storyline to help promote the new Flyweight division. War Uncle Creepy!
