On the line in the Co-Main Event is the #1 contender spot at Middleweight. Nate "The Great" Marquardt has been there before. Chael Sonnen wants to be there. Nate has been ultimately impressive, submitting Jeremy Horn at UFC 81, taking out Wilson Gouveia at UFC 95, and knocking out Demian Maia cold at UFC 102. Marquardt had his chance at Anderson Silva at UFC 73, and he wants another one. He has to get through Chael Sonnen. At first, Sonnen's UFC career was less than impressive, losing his debut at UFC 55 to Babalu, and at UFC 60 to Jeremy Horn. WEC, however, would put Sonnen in a different light, winning against Bryan Baker, and even against Paulo Filho. Returning to the UFC would give Sonnen a rude welcome back, as Demian Maia would put him away rather quickly at UFC 95. That's when a fire would be lit under Chael, and at UFC 98, he dominated Dan Miller, and more importantly, Yushin Okami, winning unanimously over both at UFC's 98 & 104. On a personal sidenote, I've never liked this guy, and more recently (which I'll mention after the fights) he's given lots of people good reason not to like him.
All in all, I thought this was pretty good, just not AWESOME after the whole thing took place. In saying that, this really isn't a bad collection of fights. There are 11 of them, and I'll list 'em all below!
Rolles Gracie vs. Joey Beltran: Well, for the first time since the legend himself, we get a man in here from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu's legendary family. And we also have a man known as "The Mexicutioner," making his UFC debut as well, ready to bring it. What starts off as a decent scrap ends in pathetic fashion, because one man just loses his gas, and is TKO'd in the 2nd!
Tim Hague vs. Chris Tuchscherer: Both of these guys come into this with something to prove. Hague was knocked out in 7 seconds by Todd Duffee. Chris Tuchscherer caught a low kick, and continued to fight Gabriel Gonzaga, getting taken out. This is a grinder, and not a bad fight, just a crappy MAJORITY decision, where Joe Rogan said it might be the worst decision he's ever seen. Not sure I can disagree with that.
Brian Stann vs. Phil Davis. Experienced striking meets a national wrestling champion. This was a good fight, but it sure was dominated! Unanimous decision, and impressive!
Phillipe Nover vs. Rob Emerson: Nover looked great on TUF 8, but didn't win TUF 8, and got screwed against Kyle Bradley at UFC 98. Rob Emerson has had great scraps, and has knocked out another TUF runner-up. This is a decent battle that goes to a unanimous decision for a well fought fight!
Melvin Guillard vs. Ronys Torres: Everybody knows what Guillard wants out of a fight, and newcomer, Torres, probably wants the submission. But, neither fighter gets what they want, but one does get a unanimous decision. Good fight!
Mac Danzig vs. Justin Buchholz: Remember when Danzig was on top of the world on TUF 6? He won that show! But he hasn't been impressive lately. Justin Buchholz's claim to fame is a submission over Corey Hill, and bringing it every fight. This is a loser leaves town match-up. I thought it could've been finished a time or two. But in the end, a unanimous decision was settled for.
Matt Serra vs. Frank Trigg: Could we just save the drama and call this THE BATTLE OF THE BIG-MOUTHS?!!? Ok, ok, fine! They've both fought a who's who of opponents, including Matt Hughes and Georges St-Pierre. They've both fought for the title while at their best. But one of them gets a beautiful KO in the 1st that I really liked!!
Demian Maia vs. Dan Miller: Both of these guys come into this fight coming off of losses, but with the ability to scrap! This is a decent match that stays mainly stand-up, and while the winner earns a title shot, the loser still gets the Co-Main Event at UFC 114. Unanimous decision!
Mike Swick vs. Paulo Thiago: What can you say? Swick got handled by Dan Hardy at UFC 105, and Thiago got his rhythm back against Jacob Volkmann at UFC 106. One of them impresses BIG-TIME with an impressive submission in the 2nd!!
Nate Marquardt vs. Chael Sonnen: Unanimous decision, fight of the night, and I don't really care. I feel the man who lost could still have won on any other night. And I suppose it was a good fight, I just can't stand the man who won it!
Randy Couture vs. Mark Coleman: I just have one thought...WHO WOULD'VE THOUGHT? This really wasn't too bad, but the man who took this home, did so with a sweet anaconda choke in the 2nd round! And he's still the man!!
Usually, I really don't have a lot of afterthought. This time I do. Chael Sonnen has really embarrassed himself lately, cheating in his title shot against Anderson Silva, STILL getting submitted. If that weren't enough, he has also pled guilty to money laundering, and will more than likely get probation. This man is supposed to be a leader, and should be an example. You want to live your life like that, FINE! But don't think people like me are going to be a fan any quicker because of it. Chael Sonnen has a competitive spirit, there is no disputing that. But he also has a big mouth, and such a desire to be #1, that he goes to such levels to do so. Get your act together, Chael! Turn this personal low into something you can be proud of in the future. I doubt such a thing will ever happen though.
I'm not going to spend much time reviewing this one, lets just say the main event was hard to watch one time, and republican steroid boy lays on top of another man for 15 minutes. Most of the fighters played it safe, and really most of them have already peaked as fighters years ago, some needing steroids to stay in the mix. I'm not sure why anyone would rate this more than 1 star unless they were trying to sell it.
