ADCC 2011 Results - Galvao Domination

Andre Galvao is the talk of the Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling 2011 tournament, winning the absolute and under 88KG divisions. Braulio Estima, 2009's big winner, defeated Jacare in the superfight on points, 3-0. Mario Sperry also won a superfight against Renzo Gracie, 5-0.

Galvao, a BJJ blackbelt under Fernando "TererĂª" Augusto, now runs his own school. As you can see below, Brazilian fighters dominated the field, with the exception of Dean Lister taking the under 99KG division.

To win the absolute finale, Galvao defeated Shinsho Anzai, Sergio Moraes, Murilo Santana and Pablo Popovitch via toehold for the championship. In the 88KG division, he defeated Don Ortega, Gunnar Nelson, Pablo Popovitch and Rousimar Palhares. Galvao (6-2 MMA) indicated he may return to the MMA arena, though he enjoys running his school. Galvao's biggest MMA wins have come over John Alessio, Jorge Patino and Jeremiah Metcalf.

You'll notice plenty of high level MMA fighters including Vinny Magalhaes of TUF 8 winning the over 99KG division over Fabricio Werdum on points. 2009's over 99KG winner, this years 2nd place winner, Strikeforce/UFC veteran Fabricio Werdum.

Bobonis Notches Biggest MMA Victory

This past Saturday, Shah Bobonis won the biggest fight of his career, defeating American Top Team's Marcos da Matta at Bellator 50 via 3rd round KO. With momentum on his side, Bobonis has now won four MMA bouts in a row.

Da Matta is a serious talent in the BJJ game, winning a World Championship in 1996 in the purple belt division, a Brazilian National Championship in 2000, and silvers at the 1999 Pan-Am Games and 2000 Worlds.

Bobonis has been a friend of mine since I did a story on him in preparation for a bout back in 2008. I was recently able to catch up Shah and ask a few questions about his recent performance.

MMA Blaster: What did you know about Marcos da Matta and his BJJ credentials going into the fight?

Bobonis: Going into the fight I knew that he was the best BJJ player at 135 pounds in the Florida MMA scene. I didn't want to look him up before the fight because I didn't want to over think it. After the fight I looked him up, and he has more BJJ titles than I have MMA fights.

MMA Blaster: What was the game plan for the fight?

Bobonis: Master Marcos Avellan of FFA and I put together a game plan that seemed to pan out exactly the way we thought it would. We wanted to pot shot him with clean shots and keep distance. We wanted him to work hard for every take down and for me to keep getting up after being taken down. Then, when he started to tire from all the take down attempts, get more aggressive with the stand-up.

MMA Blaster: How did the fight play out? Did he have you any trouble with his submission attempts? What did you hit him with for the KO?

Bobonis: The fight played out according to the game plan. I hurt him, then dropped him with a few right hands in the first round. Almost took his leg off with a low kick, and made him work hard for every take down.

I was caught in a tight arm bar early in the fight that popped my arm a bit. Also, my back was taken twice, but besides the arm bar I never felt like I was in serious submission trouble. In the third I felt him fading and finished him with a right and left hook.

MMA Blaster: What is your next move?

Bobonis: I have a few offers on the table so I'm not sure yet what is next. I have to rest my hands a bit because they are pretty sore. I'd like to fight one more time this year.

MMA Blaster: Any shout outs? Sponsor mentions?

Bobonis: I want to thank my parents, family, friends, Marcos and David Avellan, everyone at the Freestyle Fighting Academy, Brawl and Maul, MMA Global Solutions, Swole Nutrition, Well Rounded Warrior, MMA Sporting Goods, Born Filthy MMA and Fast Graphics.

Fights to Make After UFC 135 and UFN 25

UFC 135 and UFN 25 were two solid events that shook up the landscape of the UFC. Most notable was another excellent performance by Jon Jones at UFC 135 and Jake Ellenberger's nasty KO of Jake Shields at UFN 25.
Here is a mock look-in at some potential bouts down the line:

Jon Jones against Rashad Evans- Jones is coming off a dominant performance against Rampage Jackson, utilizing his range, landing low kicks at will, and ending the fight with a 4th round rear naked choke.  Rashad has been chomping at the bit for a title shot, last fighting Tito Ortiz at UFC 133 and winning via TKO.

Jake Ellenberger against winner of Condit v. GSP- Ellenberger has been on fire since his insanely close loss to Carlos Condit, winning 5 straight fights. His last was the pinnacle with a destructive KO against title challenger Jake Shields.

Josh Koscheck against Tim Boetsch- Koscheck was able to stop Matt Hughes via TKO at UFC 135 as time was expiring. With hints at moving to 185, and the UFC not eager to see GSP v. Koscheck III, it is time for him to make the jump. Boetsch notched another big time peformance at UFC 135, crushing Nick Ring, before that he stopped Kendall Grove.

Travis Browne against the winner of Kongo v. Mitrione- Browne now stands at 12-0-1, taking a unanimous decision against Rob Broughton at UFC 135. With the draw coming against Cheick Kongo, a rematch would make sense should he win against Mitrione. Mitrione has confused many with his striking and athletic ability. Mitrione v. Kongo happens at UFC 137.

Nate Diaz against the winner of Mac Danzig v. Matt Wiman- Diaz is coming off a pinpoint performance against Takanori Gomi. Looking to make another run at 155, after alternating wins and losses at 170, the next logical step would be a fight against the winner of these two TUF vets.

Erik Koch against loser of Jose Aldo v. Kenny Florian- Koch was dominant in his decision win against TUF winner Jonathan Brookins extending his win streak to 4, defending takedowns and punishing his opponent. With Chad Mendes owning the title shot, Koch needs a high profile bout to push him into conention at 145.

How did Fox feel about MMA in 1998?

Fox and the UFC just signed a mega deal that promises four events to be aired on the broadcast network, sure to shatter all MMA ratings records in the United States.

But back in 1998, when MMA was only four years old in this country, Fox took another angle when covering MMA on it show, "Fox Files." It went the underground, illegal, human cockfighting, dangerous, next moral danger route. Headbutts, yeah, they are really dangerous doc, why they weren't the first thing against the rules is beyond me.

You'll see clips of Yves Edwards, Mark Kerr, Eugene Jackson, Tiki. Around the 8 minute mark is a unique clip of an event being busted by the cops, card shuffled after fighters leave; then continuing after the cops leave, which happened quite a bit back in the day.

Fights to Make After Strikeforce - Barnett v. Kharitonov

In a Strikeforce Grand Prix that has already lasted seven months, it is fair to say the luster has been lost to a certain extent. Add in a possible hand injury to finalist Daniel Cormier, as he punished the massive head of Junior "Bigfoot" Silva, and a possible finale might not reach us until the end of the year.

Josh Barnett v. Daniel Cormier- Barnett (31-5) enters the final of the Grand Prix on slick arm-triangle wins over Brett Rogers and Sergei Kharitonov. The former UFC champ, now known as "The Warmaster" will certainly enter the bout as the favorite, looking to strike to set up a takedown to use his vaunted submission skills.
(The Warmaster)

Olympic wrestler Daniel Cormier (9-0) tournament route has been off the beaten path, as he began by winning an alternate bout over Jeff Monson. Cormier then had his breakout win this past weekend knocking out the massive Bigfoot. Cormier will definitely let his hands fly again while mixing in takedowns against Barnett.

Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal v. Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante part II for LHW Title- Both men enter the bout on dramatic KO victories. King Mo won his return bout with a first round KO of uber BJJ fighter Roger Gracie, while Feijao (11-3) stopped hyped wrestler Yoel Romero Palacios.

The first bout saw King Mo (8-1), with one bad knee, fighting a stand-up battle and eventually gassing out. A second bout with a healed up Mo would certainly yield fireworks again. The bout could be for the title, as Dan Henderson is without a contract, and likely to return to the UFC.
(King Mo)

Luke Rockhold v. Tim Kennedy for MW Title- Rockhold (8-1) had a dominant performance against reigning champ Jacare to take the 185 pound Strikeforce title. The only other fighter on a roll is Kennedy (14-3), who has defeated Robbie Lawler and Melvin Manhoef since his decision loss to the aforementioned Jacare. Rockhold has rattled off 7 straight wins.

Jake Ellenberger Ready To Fight

Here is friend of MMA Blaster, Marcos Villegas, speaking to UFC Fight Night 25 headliner Jake Ellenberger regarding his upcoming bout with Jake Shields.

Ellenberger states that his 8 to 10 week training camp has gone well and he is injury free. He doesn't feel that Jake Shields is a big step up in competition, though Shields presents different problems. From bell to bell, Ellenberger promises to put the pressure on Shields throughout.

TUF 14 Rumors and Preview

The Ultimate Fighter 14 debuts tonight, September 21, 2011, with head coaches Jason "Mayhem" Miller opposite Michael Bisping. The show will be the first to feature the lighter weights, with tournaments for the 135 and 145 pound divisions.
(Michael Bisping pictured)

After multiple complaints, the show will again feature an elimination round to get into the house. As such, there will be 32 fighters starting out, with 16 in each bracket. In addition, there will not be a wild card fight. With injuries a constant in the show, that also is a good move.
(Jason "Mayhem" Miller pictured)

Listed below are the contestants which have been confirmed on numerous MMA websites and seen in the teaser videos.

The obvious front-runners in the 145 division are Micah Miller and Eric Marriot, each of whom have big show experience with solid overall skills. Hopefully Dana White doesn't match them up in the opening match-ups. The featherweight division has some interesting prospects as well, including KOTC's 135 pound champ Jimmie Rivera, undefeated fighter Stephen Bass, Jesse Newell and Team Alpha Male's Bryan Caraway.

The 135 division seems more open, with experienced John Dodson likely being the favorite, though he normally fights at 125. TJ Dillashaw is an interesting fighter, having wrestled for Cal Sate and training under at Team Alpha Male. Brandon Merkt is an undefeated fighter at 11-0, but really has faced only sub-par competition.

There always seems to be a well traveled veteran that rises to the occasion and notches some wins on the show. With it being the 135 division, several bantamweight fighters have usually fought up one or two weightclasses to get experience. We'll see how 24+ fight vets Matt Jaggers, Paul McVeigh and Johnny Bedford do in the tournament.
