Paul Felder Took a Heck of a Beating on Saturday Night

In case you missed it, lightweight Muay Thai ace Paul Felder was in desperate need of an opponent for Saturday night’s UFC 226, so he agreed to face welterweight slugger Mike Perry. And Perry beating him to a bloody pulp.

Usually, Felder is the most technically superior striker in the cage, and that was true when he faced Perry. But it was almost like a boy fighting a man the way Perry hoisted Felder up and threw him down, and though Felder was sharp with his knees and elbows, Perry just walked through it all.

Don’t weep for Felder, though. He’s still got that commentator and fight analyst gig (that he’s really good at), and though he lost, his stock probably went up a bit. After all, he never wavered, and went the distance with what was probably a broken arm (sustained landing a spinning backfist on Perry’s head in Round 1).

UFC Fight Night 132 Results: Donald Cerrone Too Old and Slow for Leon Edwards

Donald Cerrone has been fighting a long, long time, and has made a ton of fans along the way because of his aggressive, take-no-prisoners style. Sadly, all those fans must now watch as their hero ages out of being effective in the Octagon while being fed to younger guys.

One such younger guy is Brit Leon Edwards, who’s done well in the UFC’s UK circuit, and will likely make the jump to pay-per-view on the back of someone like “Cowboy”. This is our UFC Fight Night 132 main event.

I want to say Cerrone revealed flashes of his old self, but that wouldn’t be true. He was too small against Edward’s larger frame, and his speed – which made him dangerous in the past – has left him. So we got to see Cowboy bloodied in the first, and throughout the bout, Cerrone was getting out-struck at distance with Edward’s body-kicks, and out-struck in close with Edward’s elbows and knees.

Cerrone scored a takedown in Rounds 4 and 5, but he was otherwise stymied, and when time ran out there was no mystery as to who won.

 

Results: Leon Edwards def. Donald Cerrone via Unanimous Decision
