Dustin Barca vs. Isaac Hopps

Red gloves and white trunks for the 2-0 Barca, blue gloves and blue trunks for the 4-3 Hopps. Barca is the elder fighter at 36, Hopps is just 26. Hopps fights out of Waimanalo, Hawaii. Barca fights out of Kilauea, Hawaii. Our referee is Kevin Yoshida.

Round 1: Barca lands the first leg kicks and Hopps returns the favor. Barca lands a counter left hook when Barca rushes in. Barca keeps his right hand high and dangles his left out, though it’s a knee he lands for the best strike early in this fight. Barca continues to hunt for a left hook and throws out a front kick. Hopps with a 1-2 as Barca moves into range. Barca throws a right head kick that’s partially checked.

2:20 gone thus far. Barca is forcing Hopps to work off his back foot and throw leg kicks. Hard body kick from Barca. Right hand from Hopps followed by a stiff jab. Hopps with a right uppercut. Low kick by Barca. Hopps takes a groin kick straight up the middle on a right kick and Yoshida calls time.

Heavy right hand and leg kick for Hopps before the bell. Close round. McCarthy sees it 10-9 Barca. Hopps almost stole it back late.

Round 2: A frenetic pace of fisticuffs opens the round. Barca lands a body kick. Both men trade leg kicks. Hopps looks more and more like a boxer as the fight goes on, and he keeps working hands to the body to soften Barca up. Left hook lands for Hopps, Barca grazes him with a left high kick in return. Hopps lands a combo and Barca misses with a knee, but the second one connects.

Half of round two (and potentially the fight) is in the books. Hopps comes forward with a left to the jaw. Barca tries to respond in kind. Hopps circles and lands the outside low kick, then Barca returns with a combo. Hoops with body and head work. Barca tries and fails to get a muay thai clinch. The speed of Hopps seems to be a real problem for Barca, and worse still he’s slowing down. Barca shoots late and Hopps blocks it until the last second. 10-9 Hopps.

Round 3: Barca tags Hopps with a left 8 seconds into the third. He lands it again at 41 seconds. Hopps works leg kicks inside and outside to the left leg repeatedly. Barca knocks Hopps off balance with a hard leg kick. Barca tires of the leg shots and pushes Hopps into the fence with heavy hands and then gets a takedown at 2:08. Hopps eats a right knee when he gets up and is taken back down again at 2:57. Hopps pushes Barca up out of half into the full guard and tries to wall walk to his feet. He’s back up at 3:53, almost gets taken down again, but switches and lands on top in half trying to throw hammerfists. Barca pushes him off, stands up, takes him down at 4:30 with authority. That should seal it. Hopps opens Barca up with a late elbow. 10-9 Barca.

Final result: The judges score it 29-28 Barca, 29-28 Hopps, 30-27 Barca by split decision.


Kai Kamaka vs. Shojin Miki

Red trunks and red gloves for Kamaka, 4-2, fighting out of Ewa Beach, Hawaii. Blue gloves and black trunks for Miki, 4-3, fighting out of Honolulu, Hawaii. Our referee is Chris West.

Round 1: Kamaka quickly rushes forward to control the cage, throws a right hook and drops levels for a takedown. Miki tries to trap his head in the process for a guillotine choke with no luck. This turns into a stalemate that drags on as neither man improves their position. Mr. West seems to be in no hurry to break it up.

Kamaka finally pops his head free at 2:44 and he’s in the closed guard. He throws lefts and rights to the body as he looks to posture up for elbows. Some get through at 3:35 and then he backs up to drop down with heavy rights, having to avoid upkicks in the process. He passes to half, unloads with lefts, then both men stand up at 4:13. Kamaka takes him down right to full mount and takes the back with short time left. 10-9 Kamaka.

Round 2: Kamaka shoots hard for a takedown 5 seconds in, it’s momentarily stuffed, he finally gets it then has to avoid a kimura attempt from Miki.

Both men trade kicks and Kamaka hits another takedown at 2:53. Miki is trying to get a kimura again. Kamaka breaks free and bashes him with a left elbow to the jaw. Miki tries one more time to get the kimura but Kamaka takes the back and jacks him up with rights to the head. 10-9 Kamaka.

Round 3: Kamaka presses Miki into the fence and takes him down 25 seconds into the round. Mauro Ranallo dubs this “takedown, rinse, repeat.” He’s not wrong. It certainly worked for Michael Chandler in the main event last night. Miki sweeps Kamaka and is looking for the kimura but Kamaka escapes — however this lets Miki take top in guard.

Miki has just over three minutes to turn the fight around. Kamaka is using his legs and arms to flatten Miki into him chest to chest. Kamaka tries to escape, Miki looks to take his back, it’s to no avail as Kamaka is able to stand back up. Miki tries to elbow him in the head as Kamaka looks for a single leg takedown. Miki is briefly on top on the failed attempt, then a stalemate leads West to reset them with 22 seconds left. Miki comes forward swinging but can’t land a big blow. 10-9 Miki.

Final result: All three judges score it 29-28 for Kai Kamaka.

115 lbs.: Jessica Aguilar vs. Weili Zhang

Round 1: JAG in black (and white rashguard), Zhang in red, Hickmott our ref. Aguilar goes for a takedown early. Zhang defends very well and after about a minute of clinch work, she gets her own trip and is in side control. Aguilar is bleeding near her left temple. Elbows from Zhang. She’s striking well from top with elbows and backfists. Zhang grinding her elbow and forearm into that cut. Halfway through the round and it’s been a dominant bit of top game from the Chinese woman. Great GNP and she goes to mount. Aguilar uses it to roll out, but she goes directly into a triangle. This is reminiscent of Anderson Silva smashing Travis Lutter as she’s smashing JAG with elbows in that triangle attempt. Zhang switches to an armbar and gets the tap! Wow, that was a hell of a win for what is her 18th win in a row now.

Final result: Weili Zhang defeats Jessica Aguilar via submission (armbar) at 3:41 of Round 1

115 lbs.: Syuri Kondo vs. Yan Xiaonan

Round 1: Xiaonan in red, Kondo in black, John Sharp the ref. Xiaonan starting out aggressive and lands in a nice mix of kicks and punches. Low kick and a nice right from Xiaonan. Kondo returns fire, but definitely had the bad end of that exchange. Kondo with a good leg kick. More exchanges from both fighters. Xiaonan with a stomping straight kick into a lead-hand hook. Loud chants for Xiaonan from the crowd. Xiaonan outlanding Kondo at least four to one here, I’d love to see the stats, if the booth would be so kind. Fast right hand for Xiaonan. The Chinese fighter tries a spinning backfist, but Kondo gets away from it. Kondo still pressing forward, but mostly just walking into strikes. Xiaonan tries a couple more spinning attacks as the round slowly comes to an end.

10-9 Xiaonan

Round 2: Not much landing in the first minute, despite both fighters trying their same strategy – Kondo walking in and throwing single shots, Xiaonan throwing volume and running out a spinning backfist for variety’s sake. A clinch changes the tempo briefly and Kondo gets in a knee to the gut. They break after that. Xiaonan keeps trying that spinning backfist with no setup. Kondo eating shots, but now she tries and succeeds with a spinning backfist of her own, which gets her into another clinch. Another nice clinch knee as they break for Kondo. She’s still eating combos at distance. More spinning shit from both women. Good left from Xiaonan. Kondo with a right as she eats a body kick. The… fifth? spinning backfist attempt of the round from Xiaonan. Sixth.

10-9 Xiaonan

Round 3: “Xiaonan” chants from the crowd again. Low kick from the Japanese fighter is answered with a straight right by Xiaonan. Second spinning backfist attempt of the round gets in clean. Third does not. Finally Dan Hardy spits out the unofficial striking stats and it’s 99-52 in favor of Xiaonan. That’s barely half the correct number, in my opinion. The same thing is playing out again this round as has the past ten minutes – Kondo is walking forward, trying to get in a good shot here and there, but mostly just walking into a buzzsaw. I almost feel bad for continuously pointing this out, but yet another spinning backfist from Xiaonan with no setup, and is thus ineffectual. Yet again. Kondo gets a clinch, but Xiaonan gets out of danger without any damage. Side kick to the face from Xiaonan. Nice right hand from Xiaonan as well. Xiaonan spamming those same, dumb spinning backfists again – four in a row to close out the fight.

10-9 Xiaonan

Final result: Yan Xiaonan defeats Syuri Kondo via decision (unanimous) 30-27 x3


185 lbs.: Kevin Holland vs. John Phillips

Round 1: Crowd shots during the entrances show a half-filled arena for these prelims so far. Holland in light gray, Phillips in black and our ref is Peter Hickmott.

Phillips kicks the legs out from underneath Holland but just backs off and lets him up. Holland with a front kick to the chin. Another to the body hurts Phillips.

Phillips is holding up fairly well from the onslaught and trying to catch Holland on a counter, but Holland is using his length well and staying away from the returns.

Holland finally backs off and they’re back to center. They clinch and the Texan gets in some very nice knees on Phillips. A kick to Phillips’ pills gives us a break in the action as the Welshman recovers. Good shot from Phillips after they resume has Holland stumbling back momentarily, but he gets his feet and seems fine. Flying knee from Holland plants Phillips on his butt in the closing seconds.

10-8 Holland.

Phillips brute forces his way up, and is trying some GNP now. Holland with a triangle attempt, but Phillips gets out of it quickly. They keep scrambling and Phillips snatches up the rear naked with about a minute left and gets the tap.

OMG! Watch Rogan’s Live Reaction To ‘Zombie’ Killer

There used to be a time when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) color commentator, Joe Rogan, was calling every televised live event, including those on FOX and FOX Sports 1. But in the twilight of his career, the former Fear Factor host can provide similar sound bites from the comfort of his podcast chair.

Alongside regulars Brendan Schaub and Eddie Bravo.

That includes the UFC Fight Night 139 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which took place last Sat. night (Nov. 10, 2018) inside Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. The headlining act featured Yair Rodriguez flatlining Chan Sung Jung with just one second left in the fight (watch it).

Rogan, much like the rest of us, was aghast at the buzzer-beating finish.

The stoppage was good enough to earn two post-fight bonuses for Rodriguez. “Fight of the Night” for his five-round war, and Knockout of the Night “Performance of the Night” for his no-look elbow that put “Korean Zombie” on ice.
