Vitor Belfort TKO’s Michael Bisping! Belfort vs Sonnen?

This past Saturday we were treated to an entertaining MMA event for free 99 on FX.

The first bout in the main event at UFC on FX 7 was Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Thiago Tavares.

Tavares had been on a winning streak tearing through his opponents, however this streak came to an abrupt halt with he met Nurmagomedov in the cage. It only took a couple of minutes for Nurmagomedov to TKO Tavares, and validate to the MMA world that he is yet another UFC Lightweight that is quickly working his way into title contention.

Nurmagomedov now boasts an MMA record of 19-0, while having a 3-0 record with the UFC. In a heavyweight match we witnessed Gabriel Gonzaga go back to his roots, and submit former IFL champ Ben Rothwell.

Gonzaga was craft with his BJJ, and even used the big screen to his advantage while trying to position himself for a submission of Rothwell. Meanwhile, CB Dolloway defeated Daniel Sarafian by split decision and made it two wins in a row. This fight was competitive from beginning to end and earned fight of the night honors. Last but not least was the main event, which ended pretty quickly.

I think most people thought that it wouldn’t last long once they saw a chiseled Vitor Belfort enter the Octagon. Belfort skills were on point as he easily defeated Bisping by TKO. However, his physique and physical appearance might have gotten more attention than his accomplishments in the ring that night, which raises the question, is Belfort back on the PED program.

UFC 110: Mirko Cro Cop vs Ben Rothwell

Looks like Mirko Cro Cop will stay true to his word and finish his current UFC contract. The Croatian fighter is expected to take on “Big” Ben Rothwell on the main card of UFC 110 on Feb. 20 at the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia.

Cro Cop (25-7-2) is coming off a disappointing verbal submission loss to Junior dos Santos at UFC 103. He continues to state that a mental block is the reason preventing him from being the great fighter he was in PRIDE and has since seeked psychiatric therapy.

Rothwell (30-7) was welcomed into the UFC by heavyweight contender Cain Velasquez at UFC 104. The former IFL standout was floored by a fire storm of punches from Velasquez, forcing Steve Mazagatti to step in and halt the fight at 0:58 of the second round. The stoppage was met with criticizing from fans and well as Rothwell who stated, “I was climbing back to my feet and unless he drops me or my eyes roll back in my head, the fight shouldn’t be stopped in that situation,”
