Bellator 202 Results: Michael McDonald Utterly Destroys Eduardo Dantas

To say that former UFC title challenger Michael McDonald wrecked former Bellator champ Eduardo Dantas at Bellator 202 would be an understatement. “Utterly destroyed” would be more apt.

It took all of 58 seconds for McDonald to drop the fearsome Brazilian striker with a punch, and swarm him with fists until he was slumped unconscious on the canvas. But in the act of getting dropped, Dantas also suffered a broken ankle – which was visibly twisted and hanging limp on the slow-motion replay. Wowsers.

I don’t know where this puts McDonald in the Bellator food chain, but this was his second fight with the organization, and he looked like the bantamweight killer of old.

That was the co-main event of Bellator 202. The main event saw featherweight champ Julia Budd dominate and beat up challenger Taita Nogueira pretty soundly. It didn’t matter if it was on the feet or on the ground, Budd was smashing her nonstop, and the TKO came in the third.

UFC 226 Results: Anthony Pettis Chews Up Michael Chiesa, Spits Him Out

Anthony Pettis was a superstar champ at one point in the distant past. Still, he’s considered on the lightweight division’s elite.

Michael Chiesa won a season of TUF, has won more than he’s lost in the Octagon, and failed to make the lightweight cutoff for this bout.

That size works to his advantage in the first, with Chiesa getting Pettis down twice and trying to bully him from top position. Pettis ain’t having it, and since he’s got pretty good jiu-jitsu as well, he either escapes trouble or threatens with submissions. Ultimately, that means they’re back to fighting on their feet, where Pettis is far superior.

That superiority shines in the second round, courtesy of a Pettis right hand that rocks Chiesa and makes him forget his jiu-jitsu on the ground. When the former lightweight champ slaps on the triangle choke-armbar combo, Chiesa is too befuddled to do anything but tap.

 

Results: Anthony Pettis def. Michael Chiesa via Submission (Triangle Choke-Armbar) at :52, R1

UFC Fans Want Queen Elizabeth To Knight Michael Bisping

Where’s Uryens when you need him?!?

“Sir” Michael Bisping?

The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion recently retired from mixed martial arts (MMA). Not only because he accomplished all the goals he set out to achieve, but also because he’s trying to preserve the sight in his “disfigured” right eye.

But now that he’s gone, some combat sports fans across the pond want “The Count” to join the Queen’s Knighthood. To get the ball rolling, an online petition has been started with a goal of 2,000 signatures (see it here).

As of this writing they have 1,163.

“Michael Bisping has established himself as one of the most successful and longest tenured fighters in UFC history while also becoming a pioneer for MMA in the United Kingdom,” the petition reads. “He is an inspiration for young fighters around the country and this should be recognized with a knighthood. All hail The Count!”

I’m not sure what it takes to get knighted, but sure I hope it looks something like this.
