MMA Live stacks the deck with recaps of UFC 105 and WEC 44, as well as a preview of UFC 106: Ortiz vs. Griffin II. Also, MMA legend Dan Henderson is in Bristol with an update on his fighting future.
Besides having a fantastic name, Dan Hornbuckle also has a magic foot which he planted on the chin of Akihiro Gono of former Afro Samurai UFC fame at Sengoku over the past weekend.
Gono is expected to make a full recovery from head and neck injuries that resulted from the KO.
So we watched Sengoku last night, and holy crap! One fight took 30 minutes because Stanislav Nedkov could not figure out why he wasn’t allowed to destroy the other poor bastard’s hope of ever making kids. He launched knees into the poor dude’s nutsack not once, not twice, not three times or four, but eight times.
Eight. Fucking. Times.
There is obviously no justice in the world since Stanislav went on to finish Travis Wiuff in the 1st round by TKO. I’d like to believe that Travis didn’t want to chance getting kneed in the nuggets any more and just let himself get pounded out. Regardless, watching Sengoku provided our crew with an endless tutorial of how to get disqualified in an MMA fight (or at least how to try really hard to…).
And if knees to the junk don’t warrant a DQ in your book, I invite you to watch how the first fight ended between Maximo Blanco and Akihiko Mori. I still stand by my statement that his field goal attempt would have been good from 40 yards out.
