UFC

Edgar validates, Couture dominates

Octagonside by Robert Kravantka
Photos by Ed Mulholland

Many said that his first victory in April was a fluke and UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar willingly accepted a rematch. In the main event of UFC 118 Edgar defeated former champion BJ Penn for a second time via unanimous decision. Edgar controlled the pace of the fight with lightening fast footwork, slick takedowns, and quick in-and-out punching. Edgar was a step ahead of his opponent for all five rounds, and Penn appeared winded and off balance for most of the fight. In the fourth round Penn was able to take Edgar to the mat but failed to capitalize. Edgar stayed aggressive in round five and finished the bout still-pursuing the challenger. Scores all read the same, 50-45.

47 year old Randy “The Natural” Couture needed just 3:19 to hand  five-time world boxing  champion James “Lights Out” Toney his first professional defeat in the sport of mixed martial arts. Toney began the contest by assuming his traditional boxing stance but was taken to the canvas with ease by the Hall-of-Famer Couture. Once on the ground, Toney proved to be truly out of his element as he was unable to defend the punches raining down to his head from his well-positioned opponent. Toney was unable to produce any kind of effective defense against “The Natural” and soon found himself in a tight arm triangle choke. It was only a matter of time before Toney was forced to submit.

Undefeated super middleweight Farah Ennis (16-0, 10 KOs) scored a third round KO over Reggie Pena (6-4, 1 KO). Ennis bodywork too much and Pena sank to a knee at 1:56 after right to the body.

Lundy defeats Lowther

By Dave Spencer / Fightnews Canada

Coming in on three days’ notice, light welterweight Hammerin’ Hank Lundy (19-1, 8 KOs) took a workmanlike ten round unanimous decision Omri Lowther (14-2, 10 KOs) on Saturday night at the Club Metropolis in Montreal. Scores were 98-92, 100-90, 100-90.

“I still look pretty right?” said a pumped Lundy as he left the ring and returned to his dressing room afterwards. Lundy might have look pretty but the fight itself was often somewhat less than that with long periods of inactivity from both fighters. The Atlanta born Lowther who now fights out of Toronto under Chris Johnson, trainer of two-time world champion Steve Molitor often proved tough to hit and countered well but Lundy was just too strong for his opponent.

By Alexey “Oscar” Potapov at ringside

Former WBA bantamweight champion Wladimir Sidorenko (22-2-2, 7 KOs) returned with a unanimous decision win over Mbwana Matumla (19-5, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at Independence Square, Kiev, Ukraine to take the vacant WBC International Silver super flyweight title. This boxing show attracted more than10,000 spectators. Matumla competently worked jabs with his long reach and moved well in the ring, possibly breaking Sidorenko’s nose. But from the third round on, Wladimir dominated. He was always aggressive, threw many blows, and well worked with body-punches. In the seventh round, Sidorenko started to hammer in the Ugandian. Sidorenko was very fast and active, helped by Matumba who was passive surprising the onlookers. In the twelfth round, Sidorenko rocked his foe and looked for the knockout, but Matumba stayed on his feet. Judges scored it 120-108 (twice) and 119-109. Fightnews scorecard 118-110. (more…)

UFC 118 is LIVE on PPV TONIGHT

If Frankie Edgar hasn’t changed a lot – actually, not at all – since winning the UFC lightweight title from BJ Penn in April, it’s not hard to understand why.

As recently as mid-2007, before his third UFC bout, against Spencer Fisher, Edgar’s days weren’t filled with training, interviews, photo shoots, and time with the family.

Can Calderon do it again?

See it TONIGHT 9PM ET/6PM PT on PPV

By Graham Houston

There usually comes a time when great champions with long winning runs suffer their first loss and it always comes as something of a surprise. Antonio Cervantes losing to Wilfred Benitez, Eder Jofre to Fighting Harada, Pascual Perez to Pone Kingpetch, Ruben Olivares to Chucho Castillo, Wilfredo Gomez to Azumah Nelson, are all fights that come to mind in which champions who had been winning title fights almost as a matter of routine left the ring as ex-champs.

One wonders if Ivan Calderon might be coming to the end of his long winning sequence. The Puerto Rican southpaw is a magnificent boxer but at 35 he is at an age when a fighter in the lighter weight classes can suddenly not so much grow old overnight but become old enough to lose a fight they would once have won.

Calderon faces what I think is a dangerous fight in Puerto Rico on Saturday when he meets Mexico’s Giovanni Segura in a junior flyweight title unification match. (more…)

Matthysse destroys Castañeda

Lujan TKOs Julio in co-feature

Lucas Matthysse (27-0, 25 KO’s) of Argentina retained his WBO Latino junior welterweight title against Rogelio Castañeda (26-16-3, 8 KO’s of Mexico by way of first round KO on Friday night at the Estadio Cubierto Newell Old Boys in Rosario, Argentina. After a brief feeling out period Matthysse dropped Castañeda half way through the round with a left hook. Castañeda beat the count but was on unsteady legs and the bout continued on. Moments later a barrage of punches sent Castañeda to the canvas again but he again beat the count but visibly still shaken. Matthysse finished matters with a series of punches puncuated with an overhand right that sent Castañeda crashing hard to the canvas for the third and final time. The corner through in the towel and the referee waved off the bout at the same time. The bout was a rematch of a 2008 no contest where the bout was prematurely ended after an accidental clash of heads cut Castañeda.

Former two-time world title challenger Sebastián Luján (34-5-2, 22 KO’s) of Argentina successfully defended his WBC Latino welterweight title against Emilio Julio (16-8-1, 8 KO’s) of Colombia by way of seventh round TKO. Lujan dominated the fight swarming Julio with a volume of body and head shots. Luján had Julio reeling so bad in round 5 that Julio excessively held so much the referee deducted a point. More punishment followed in round six by Luján and Julio stayed on his stool and did not answer the bell for round seven. The event was promoted by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Arano Box Producciones.

Pacman-Margarito tickets

By Nick Giongco

From the deck of a cruise ship docked in the South of France, Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum said that a ringside ticket to the Nov. 13 world super-welterweight title fight between Manny Pacquiao and Antonio Margarito will be retailed at a reasonable $700 a pop. Arum told Manila Bulletin and Fightnews that other tickets will be sold at $500, $300, $200, $100 and $50 for the fight to be held at the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. These were the same prices when Pacquiao fought the last time in March against Joshua Clottey when he drew almost 51,000 spectators. Arum believes this fight will lure more than 70,000 fans since Margarito has a fan-base in Texas being Mexican and that the event will take place right smack in the (National Football League) season. “This is going to be a lot bigger than the March fight,” said Arum, who is in the final phase of his two-week European vacation. Arum will be back in the US in time for a three-city press tour that kicks off in Los Angeles on Tuesday. From Hollywood, the traveling circus’ succeeding stops would be New York and Dallas, where Texas billionaire Jerry Jones is rolling out the red carpet.

In the fourth round, Rios landed a right hand to the body that dropped Brea to one knee. Brea got up, but was dropped again to one knee by another right hand to the beltline. Brea remained on one knee, complaining that the punch was low as referee Jose Cobian counted him out at 2:59. For more details and photos click here…

After an extensive training camp in Big Bear, under Abel Sanchez, Peter departs for Germany on the 2nd.
