UFC 112 - performance, bonuses, conference
Behind us is the first ever UFC event in the United Arab Emirates. Behind us are two more fights for the top trophies - the championship belt and a lightweight belt. After the first UFC event was held outdoors in the Ferrari World Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
In the first duel for the championship division fought 155 current champion BJ Penn and challenger Frankie Edgar. The Answer from the first minute he became known for its incredible mobility . Edgar was also the first player in lightweight, who performed the Takedown Pennie effective. BJ Penn has consistently, however, seemed to be, controlled the fight by asking for more celniejszych beats. The whole encounter lasted the full five rounds and when it came to the decision of judges seemed to be quietly BJ Penn defended his title. But nothing further from the truth, the judges, once again, however, saw it differently to win unanimously punktując Frankie Edgar, who thus became the new UFC lightweight champion. While the duel was indeed aligned with a predominance of BJ Penn, that one of the judges scoring 50-45 for Frankie Edgar seems to be at least a scandal.
A duel of the evening, which was the title of the division rate was also 185 for a distance of five rounds. In this battle we had to deal with the situation radically different. Anderson Silva in a confrontation with Demian Maia showed how much I respect the opponent, the federation and its fans so that makes a living. Spider behavior during the fight can not be compared to anything else so far we have seen in octagonie. Silva gestures insulted his countryman, knelt, and sometimes even perform the steps of the famous Brazilian Copeiry. Anderson Silva was by far the better player in this duel and won by unanimous decision, but the style of this victory clearly skwitował at a press conference after the ceremony UFC president Dana White - I do not want to watch these fights. It was embarrassing and I apologize to you for that. In all my 10 - year adventure in the sport have not seen anything like this. Anderson Silva may be the first champion, which will see the fight outside the main card. -
At UFC 112 also saw a duel MMA legends. Debuting in the Ultimate Fighting Championschip, 43-year-old Renzo Gracie, met in the future octagonie Hall of Fame member of the federation, the former owner of the waist Matt Hughes welterweight division.
