Bellator Just Had Another ‘WTF’ Moment

Bellator 194 is going down in Uncasville, CT right now, and though the main event is all about UFC refugees Roy Nelson and Matt Mitrione going at it, there’s still all the usual undercard goodness.

And by “goodness”, I mean, “WTF did I just see?”

Because Bellator undercards – especially the prelims – are where the crazy stuff happens.

You know, stuff like spinning back-elbow knockouts, and this:

Tonight, just moments ago, a Bellator 194 prelim pitted Ross Richardson against Ronie Arana Leon. Neither person is anyone you should know about at this point in their careers.

What you should know is that Leon did his best imitation of a frog, which, um, was kind of crazy.

The dude lost via TKO in the second round, but man, give him points for doing something wacky.

Bellator 194 ‘Mitrione Vs Nelson 2’ Recap And Highlights!

Bellator 194 ‘Mitrione vs Nelson 2’ aired Friday night (Feb. 16, 2018) from Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. MMA Mania brings you a post-fight recap, results, .gifs and interview highlights from a card where Matt Mitrione and Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson met for a second time!

Bellator 194 “Mitrione vs. Nelson 2” took place last night (Fri., Feb. 16, 2018) at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The second bracket of the Heavyweight Grand Prix was filled out by two former UFC fighters who know each other of old.

Both “Big Country” Roy Nelson and Matt Mitrione competed on season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter, but would not meet until “Meathead” Mitrione filled in for Shane Carwin at the TUF 16 Finale. Mitrione lost that first encounter by TKO. How would he fare in the rematch?

The first round went solidly to Matt Mitrione. Multiple takedown attempts were stuffed all while “Meathead” punished Nelson with leg kicks and uppercut hands. Nelson finally got a takedown with a minute and change left but scored no offense on top even while he had side control. Round 2 was as Mike Goldberg would say “virtually identical” right down to the late takedown, only Mitrione was also able to open up a cut around Nelson’s left eye, giving him multiple bullseyes to target.

Nelson got the takedown much earlier in Round 3 and it proved to be a huge difference maker, leading to an eventual mounted crucifix where he was pounding on Mitrione. He repeatedly told referee Dan Miragliotta “I’m good. I’m good!” Miragliotta did not stop it. Nelson went for an armbar instead and Mitrione was able to escape. Nelson took him back down again with under a half minute left. “Big Country” won Round 3, but what about the fight?

The judges scored this contest 28-28 and 29-28 X2 for Mitrione by majority draw.

Mitrione spoke to “The American Gangster” Chael Sonnen after the scores were announced and Mitrione begged his daughter to go to the father-daughter dance the next night.

“Why is he so damn tough? I hid that cat so damn hard with so many shots. I’m not a judge. I’ll see you guys the next round. I think I’ll see Bader (in) the next round.”

That was not the only rematch in Uncasville. Lightweight fighters Patricky Freire and Derek Campos squared off, with “Pitbull” Freire having won the previous battle via TKO.

The second fight looked much like the first one, only it happened a lot faster this time. Freire let Campos be the aggressor and danced back and forth on the outer circle, making him spin around when he occasionally landed the leg kick, picking the perfect moment to uncork a left hand. When Campos wobbled Freire poured it on, making him stumble a second time, then drop to his knees and face plant for the finish at 2:23 when Kevin MacDonald stopped it and made “Pitbull” the TKO winner.

Chael Sonnen spoke to Freire afterward when he picked up his third straight win.

“It felt great! Like a fun day where I play with my kids at my house. My motivation is the belt. I will beat the champion easy. Mark my words. I’m the next champion!”

Something Freire said was bleeped out after that. Sonnen wasn’t done yet and tried to follow up.

“I don’t know. I don’t know. I want just the belt, and beat the champion, I want to beat all champions in my house, HERE, BELLATOR IS MY HOUSE.”

A former Light Heavyweight champion looked to get back on track against a hard hitting Russian as Liam McGeary donned the four ounce gloves to face Vadim Nemkov.

Even though McGeary is the taller man with the longer reach, Nemkov showed no fear of either advantage and continually had McGeary backpedaling. At one point Nemkov unloaded four straight kicks to McGeary’s lead left leg. It was a dominant and one-sided first round for the Russian.

The second round was just as lopsided in Nemkov’s favor. The lone chance that McGeary had was when Nemkov got on top after a clinch and McGeary tried to cinch up his patented triangle. Nemkov quickly backed out and threw kicks until McGeary stood up at 1:20, then battered the left leg with heavy kicks until the bell ended Round 2.

The end was inexorably and inevitably coming as Nemkov continued to hammer the kicks home in round three. It was quickly clear that McGeary was having problems standing when he fell down throwing a kick and couldn’t get back up. Nemkov targeted the bullseye on the left leg when he finally stood up again and each time McGeary winced and wobbled. When one final kick caused McGeary to turn his head away and fall to the ground Dan Miragliotta waved it off at 4:02.

Two MMA fighters with boxing know-how put their records on the line in the first of two contests between them as Heather Hardy (1-1) faced Ana Julaton (2-3) at Flyweight.

The first round was not the fireworks and excitement that many expected from the experienced strikers. We had long stalemates against the cage with Julaton looking for a takedown and Hardy looking for a choke. Hardy finally won that war in the last minute and was going for the finish on the ground until the bell but Julaton resisted and did not tap.

Julaton did marginally better in Round 2 by scoring a takedown 45 seconds in, but she felt so threatened by Hardy’s submission attempts that she backed away when it got near the fence and let Hardy get her back and go for a second choke. Hardy had more chances to win so she barely edged out Round 2.

The third round was so dull that referee Kevin MacDonald stopped the clinch against the fence and reset them to the center multiple times. Each time Julaton would drive Hardy back into the cage… and do nothing. By all rights this should be a 10-10 round. Even when Hardy got a late takedown Julaton swept her way on top before the bell, meaning neither fighter gained anything from it.

The judges sorted out this snooze fest and handed down a 29-28, 30-27, 30-27 Hardy decision.

After scoring a highlight reel flying knee knockout in his Bellator debut, Featherweight Tywan Claxton returned for a main card fight against Jose Antonio Perez.

This one won’t get a million views on YouTube, but it was no less of a one sided victory. In the first round Claxton took Perez down and unloaded heavy right hands and elbows from half guard. In the second frame Claxton did more of the same only he managed to pin Perez’ head against the fence, forcing referee Keith Peterson to step in at 3:39 after seeing Perez take an uncontested battering.

Despite the domination Claxton sounded frustrated in his interview with Chael Sonnen.

“Yeah I’m just really disappointed you know. My debut I got a beautiful flying knee, and I wanted to come out and put on a show. I had to take him down and finish him with elbows but I wanted to get another knockout and it just didn’t happen. I’m going to go back to the gym and start working again. I went for it. I wanted to hit it again. I’m just going to have to come back with different set-ups. I changed my name to ‘Air’ Claxton so I’m going to have to try for it in every fight.”

Fallout: Chokes, Referees, and Kevin Lee, Tony Ferguson Talking Major Trash

UFC Fight Night 112 saw some major controversy in the main event. The fight between Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee was anticipated to be a high stakes game between two fighters hoping to enter title contention with a win Sunday night. But instead of everyone speaking on how great the main event was, everyone is talking about Mario Yamasaki’s supposed “flub.”

Watch the fight the first time around, it appeared that Michael Chiesa was still conscious and willing to continue his grudge match again Kevin Lee. Yamasaki intervened and called the fight which seemed to many observers to be an early stoppage. Here’s the thing about being a ref: it’s an absolutely thankless job. No one appreciates what these refs have to go through with each and every fight they have to call. The thing about this fight was that it was apparent in multiple viewings that Michael Chiesa was on his way to blacking out completely.

The choke was locked in tight, there was thirty plus seconds left, Lee was cranking his choke and Chiesa’s arms went limp, eyes fading and rolling back into his head, a clear response from a blood choke rather than a wind choke. With Yamasaki on top of the action he had the best view out of anyone present. Rather than letting Chiesa go out like a “warrior” Yamasaki instead stopped the match. Sure, we want fighters to be given a chance at victory, at accomplishing the goals they’ve been obsessed with for weeks of training. Problem is that their ego can get in the way of their health at times and that’s what the refs are there for. As a result we have an angry fighter, angry fans, and people cursing the ref for his utter stupidity. Funny thing is, while the tough call may not be the most popular, Yamasaki had a job to do, did what he thought was right and shouldn’t be demonized for it.

On a side note, I never knew I wanted a Kevin Lee versus Tony Ferguson fight before last night. Ferguson congratulated Lee like a true class act, but the brash Detroit native took things a different way. In true McGregor form, Lee wasted no time in his additional time on television as he relegated the rest of the lightweight division as chumps and potentially set up a match between himself and Ferguson.

It was entertaining as hell and is just the kind of thing you want to see if you’re the UFC. Two personalities clashing making for a potentially exciting grudge match in the cage. It’ll sell and at the end of the day this sport is a business. Dollars and cents rule the day and Kevin Lee is setting himself up nicely to start making a nice profit.

Final result:


Liam McGeary vs. Vadim Nemkov

Nemkov has the black trunks with red trim and blue gloves. He comes in with a record of 8-2 and a reputation as a stand-up striker with heavy hands. The former champion McGeary has black trunks and red gloves, a record of 12-2, and so far his biggest weakness is his takedown defense. We’ll see how that plays out tonight. McGeary is 35 out of Brooklyn, NY, Nemkov is 25 out of Stary Oskol, Russia. McGeary owns the reach advantage at 81” to 75.5”. Our referee is Dan Miragliotta.

Round 1: Nemkov lands a solid right hand at 32 seconds but McGeary seems unfazed. Nemkov continues to chase with the hands and throws an uppercut. McGeary is staying on his back foot and being patient until he can unload a kick to the body. Another overhand right by Nemkov. Nemkov paws the range with his left jab and then uses the right to do the damage. Another uppercut by Nemkov at 2:25. A good left hand follows 7 seconds later. Nemkov is owning the fight thus far. The right hand finds a home again for Nemkov at 3:01 and McGeary tries to push forward. Nemkov backs him up again and stings McGeary’s left leg with four hard kicks. McGeary tries a head kick and falls down. He’s back up before Nemkov can pounce. Nemkov and McGeary trade kicks as the final minute of R1 winds down. Left hook lands for Nemkov. Nemkov shoots and gets a takedown at the bell. 10-9 for Nemkov.

Round 2: Nemkov blasts McGeary with a right hand standing and then gets on top on the ground when McGeary tries to lock up. McGeary tries to catch him in a triangle but Nemkov quickly senses it coming and gets out of danger, content to stand and kick until McGeary stands back up at 1:20. Nemkov continues to fish out the range with the left jab and left hook. McGeary is taking more leg kicks as we pass the halfway point. There might have been an accidental low kick to the cup at 3:50 but McGeary waves it off and accepts a glove tap. Nemkov misses with a high kick. He connects with the leg kick and McGeary switches his stance. He’s feeling it. Nemkov continues to target it. 10-9.

Round 3: McGeary is in a huge hole going into R3 for the second straight fight of his career. He’s also been immobilized by the leg kicks from Nemkov, who easily takes him to the ground at 54 seconds and then backs away so he can kick the legs. McGeary stands back up at 1:23. McGeary falls down trying to throw a kick because he can’t stand up. He can’t even stand back up because his leg gives out. Nemkov stands at range and kicks it until McGeary can finally limp back to his feet. McGeary winces and stumbles as another kick lands at 2:55. This is close to being a TKO via leg kicks. McGeary is hobbling and bobbling. Every step he takes with his left foot is a ginger one. He can’t do it any more at 4:01 and as he turns away and falls Dan Miragliotta waves it off.

Final result: Vadim Nemkov wins by TKO (leg kicks) at 4:02 of the third round.


Heather Hardy vs. Ana Julaton

Round 1:

Round 2:

Round 3:

Final result:


Tywan Claxton vs. Jose Antonio Perez

Blue gloves, white trunks, 0-1 out of Newark, NJ is Jose Perez. Red gloves, black trunks, 1-0 out of Cleveland, OH is Tywan Claxton. Our referee in charge is Keith Peterson.

Round 1: A tap of the gloves gets us underway. Claxton is crouching down and dancing back and forth on his feet. Perez throws a kick. Claxton feints with the left and continues to bob and weave. Front kick with the left foot for Claxton then a leg kick with the right. Claxton shaves Perez’ head with a head kick and comes forward with a knee and right hands. Perez blocks a potential takedown. Perez comes at Claxton throwing rights and Claxton ducks under them for the takedown at 1:48. Claxton has half guard and is trying to push Perez flat to the mat so he can drop bombs, settling for short right elbows in the interim. The ground and pound is doing damage either way. Peterson is keeping a close eye on Perez. Claxton really lays it on heavy as we pass the four minute mark. Perez survives but Claxton was drilling him hard at the bell. 10-9 or better for Claxton.

Round 2: Perez attacks with leg kicks early in R2. Claxton throws a kick of his own to the body, chases with his hands, then gets the takedown at 50 seconds. It’s virtually identical to round one except now Claxton has Perez’ head pinned against the fence. Right hooks and elbows pour down at 2:05. Peterson warns Perez to fight back. Claxton postures up again at 2:45 and Perez gets another warning. Claxton just continues to unload with those elbows. Perez’ face is getting bruised and bloodied. He finally dives in at 3:39 for the merciful save.

Final result: Tywan Claxton wins by technical knockout at 3:39 of round two.


Marcus Surin vs. Dean Hancock

Surin has the black trunks and red gloves and is 4-1 out of Spring Valley, NY. Hancock has the blue gloves and black trunks and is 3-1 out of Danbury, CT. Surin holds a 2” reach advantage 72” to 70”. Keith Peterson is our referee.

Round 1: Gloves are tapped and R1 is underway. Hancock presses forward right away and gets a takedown, slipping off the back when he tried to get in the hooks. Surin pushes forward throwing a left jab and cocking a big right hook which occasionally sneaks in. Hancock starts to press forward again and Surin uses his hands to reverse the momentum. Hancock throws a spin kick to the body that seems to momentarily stun Surin. Surin clinches and Hancock is momentarily on top, they get back up and Hancock nearly got a warning for grabbing the cage before Surin took him back down. He gets one hook in but loses it with a little under two minutes left. Hancock goes for a single leg but can’t get the hooks in and then Surin gets another takedown and is on top landing heavy right elbows. Hancock sits up and sweeps with 58 seconds left. Surin counters and has side control at 4:32. Hancock gets up again but eats some knees against the fence and one right elbow to the face at the bell. 10-9 Surin.

Round 2: Hancock pressures to open R2, throwing hands and leg kicks, Surin makes him retreat with the right hook. Surin and Hancock tie up and Surin wins as they go to the ground, having the mount and taking the back with both hooks in. Hancock tries to buck his way out but Surin rides and drives elbows to the body. Hancock escapes at 2:30 and throws punches to the body and hip as they clinch. Surin pulls him back down to the ground and Hancock turtles up trying to avoid having his back taken. It works. Hancock stands up and gets double underhooks and turns Surin into the fence then suplexes him through the air but it’s Surin who gets the back and both hooks in. He tries a rear naked choke but Hancock escapes at 4:14. Surin goes for the arm triangle choke and gets it at 4:50.

Final result: Marcus Surin wins via arm triangle choke at 4:50 of the second round.


Walter Howard Jr. vs. Jarod Trice

Trice is 2-0 in the red gloves, Howard is 3-4 in the blue gloves, but Howard has a 4.5” reach advantage at 80”. Howard sports checkerboard red/black trunks and fights out of Newark, NJ. Trice has black trunks and fights out of Tempe, AZ. Our referee is Dan Miragliotta.

Round 1: A tap of fingers starts R1. Trice is quickly moving forward and firing his left hand, keeping his right up defensively. Howard is warned by Miragliotta to watch his fingers. Trice fires shots to the body and a right hook as Howard circles on the outside. Kick to the body from Trice. Trice eats a stiff left jab and teases shooting for the legs. Trice starts to wing out the right and then comes over the top with the left. Trice tries to shoot at 3:30 but can’t grab onto anything. Trice starts talking trash and telling Howard “I’m right here” then whistles at a leg kick before throwing an overhand right. Trice nearly throws himself off balance with the next one he throws. Trice comes over the top at 4:50 and his corner is yelling “That hurt him though!” 10-9 Trice.

Round 2: Trice continues to hunt for the overhand right and lands it at 44 seconds. He grapples and pushes Howard around but loses the grip at 1:02. Howard draws a hard warning and is told he’ll lose a point as Trice gets a timeout for being poked in his left eye with a thumb. Miragliotta takes the point and the round resumes with Trice being reminded to watch his fingers too. Trice lands a couple of nasty left hooks and continues to fight through even though he’s having a hard time keeping one eye open. Trice ties up with Howard at 2:54 for a potential takedown. Howard gets free at 3:18. Left hook loops and lands for trice but he eats a right jab in return. Another left for Trice gets in and Howard responds with kicks. 10-8 Trice thanks to the deduction.

Round 3: Trice stuns Howard with a big left hand at 23 seconds and comes forward looking to land an uppercut in the dirty boxing clinch, but it’s Howard who responds with a furious flurry and suddenly it’s Trice who is in trouble, and he goes defensively for a takedown at 1:03 to try to clear his head. They break at 1:19. Miragliotta continues to warn everybody to watch their fingers. Trice whiffs on the left hook and seems to be sucking wind. Trice gets lucky though as Howard throws a kick and he catches it for a takedown — then again maybe not so lucky as Howard counters and takes the back. Trice escapes and takes Howard down again, taking his back against the fence. Trice is unloading with right hands and heavy elbows even as Miragliotta warns him to watch the back of the head. Howard gets back up at 3:25. Trice ties him up against the fence but Howard circles off at 4:14. Trice goes back to the dirty boxing and Howard responds with a head kick. Howard comes forward battering Trice and lands a big head kick at 4:48 as Trice was looking away. 10-9 for Howard.

Final result: The judges score it 28-28, 29-27 and 29-27 for Trice by majority decision.


Peter Nascimento vs. Kastriot Xhema

Round 1: Unaired on the prelims.

Final result: To be determined.


Regivaldo Carvalho vs. Tom English

Carvalho is in the red gloves and black trunks, his record 4-2, fighting out of Danbury, CT. English is in the blue gloves and white trunks with a record of 6-8 from Dix Hills, NY, and Carvalho’s biggest advantage is his age – 24 versus 42. Our referee is Kevin MacDonald.

Round 1: Carvalho just finished by knockout in 17 seconds! The fight’s over so quick the replay of his right hand is the entire fight. He landed one good one to the chin when English was on the ground and that one made it 100% over. Good to see English get back up afterward. Carvalho gives him a hug and lifts him high up in the air.

Final result: Regivaldo Carvalho wins via knockout at 0:17 of the first round.


Tyler Hamilton vs. Pat Casey

Round 1: Unaired on the prelims.

Final result: To be determined.


Ron Leon vs. Ross Richardson

Richardson is in the black trunks and red gloves, age 22, fighting out of Bronx, New York. Leon is in the gray trunks blue gloves, age 25, fighting out of Queens, New York. Both men are making their pro debut. Richardson has a 2” reach advantage at 73.5”. Our referee in charge is Dan Miragliotta.

Round 1: After a weird crawl and leapfrog by Leon to start things out we get a takedown and Richardson is on top throwing elbows. Leon tries to close guard to avoid damage or set up a potential submission. Richardson throws lefts to the body and head and keeps on dropping elbows. Leon eats a left elbow and a right to the chin as we pass the 2 minute mark. This fight has been entirely one sided thus far but Richardson hasn’t landed anything hard enough to stop it. Leon manages to kip up and Richardson trips him right back down to half guard. Richardson tries to jump over the top and winds up in closed guard. Richardson continues to mash the hands and elbows as he postures up then tries to scramble for a better position but he’s back in guard again. It’s a definite 10-9 for Richardson borderline to 10-8.

Round 2: Miragliotta warns the fighters to close their hands 30 seconds into R2. Richardson ties up with Leon looking to take it back down to the ground and completes it with a leg trip at 58 seconds. Left hands and left elbows to the head follow. Full mount is achieves at 1:27 and the ground and pound gets really vicious. Miragliotta waves it off at 1:41.

Final result: Ross Richardson wins via technical knockout at 1:41 of round two.


Mike Kimble vs. Geoffrey Then

Kimble is making his pro debut in the black trunks and red gloves fighting out of Waterbury, CT. Then is 0-1 in the blue trunks and blue gloves fighting out of Danbury, CT. Kimble has a 7” reach advantage, 74” to 67”. Our referee is Keith Peterson.

Round 1: A quick tap and both men are quickly dancing. Kimble is trying to come forward with power up the middle and Then is letting him by backing up to the fence. Then is dropped by a right hand at 44 seconds. Then is looking for an armbar when Kimble dives on top, but Kimble powerbombs him to break free and continues to throw heavy ground and pound blows once he gets loose, forcing Peterson to wave it off. Those right hand hammerfists were NASTY.

Final result: Mike Kimble wins via knockout at 1:03 of the first round.
