UFN: Shogun vs. Henderson 2 & Bellator 113 in review, plus Bellator 114 preview

We are finally coming to a off week for the UFC. However, Bellator is still going and there are still some good fights to do reviews on:

UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Henderson 2

Main Event: Mauricio “Shogun” Rua #7 Light Heavyweight vs. Dan Henderson #10 Light Heavyweight

Prediction: Rua by strikes. Result: Henderson by strikes. Henderson proved that he isn’t going out quietly and that he’s still a heavy hitter.

Co-main Event: Cezar Ferreira vs. CB Dollaway

Prediction: Ferreira by strikes. Result: Dollaway by strikes. Dollaway successfully rebounded from his loss against Tim Boetsch.

Leonardo Santos vs. Norman Parke

Prediction: Parke by submission. Result: Draw. This happens when someone grabs for something they shouldn’t and get points deducted.

Fabio Maldonado vs. Gian Villante

Prediction: Maldonado by strikes. Result: Maldonado by decision. Fabio Maldonado is a puncher but he wasn’t able to get the finish.

Michel Prazeres vs. Mairbek Taisumov

Prediction: Prazeres by decision. Result: Same. Prazeres did exactly what was expected of him and got the win everyone expected of him.

Rony Mariano Bezzerra vs. Steven Siler

Prediction: Bezzerra by strikes. Result: Same. Jason as he is known successfully got his rebound and can now look for a win streak.

Overall score: 3.5/6; 0.583 prediction percentage. 1 for Prazeres, 1 for Bezzerra, 0.5 for Maldonado, 0.5 for Dollaway, and 0.5 for Henderson.

Bellator 113

Note: Even though it’s a preliminary fight, one of the lightweight tournament fights was scored as a tournament bout with the main card.

Main Event: Attila Vegh vs. Emanuel Newton

Prediction: Vegh by submission. Result: Newton by decision. Newton learned from their first encounter and became the new champion.

Co-main Event: Patricky Freire vs. David Rickels

Prediction: Rickels by submission. Result: Freire by strikes. The larger of the “Pitbull” brothers has finally advanced to the second round.

Marcin Held vs. Rodrigo Cavalheiro

Prediction: Held by submission. Result: Same. Toe holds are not an easy submission to execute so Held needs to be acknowledged for it.

Tim Welch vs. Derek Campos

Prediction: Campos by decision. Result: Same. Campos finally got his weight under control and is now into round two of the tournament.

Brandon Girtz vs. Derek Anderson

Prediction: Girtz by submission. Result: Anderson by strikes. Even with Girtz making weight Anderson proved to be the better fighter.

Overall score: 2/5; 0.4 prediction percentage. 1 for Marcin Held’s toe hold submission victory and 1 for Derek Campos’ win by decision.

Bellator 114

Main Event: Alexander Shlemenko vs. Brennan Ward

Prediction: Shlemenko by strikes. Shlemenko demolished Doug Marshall in his last defense and will in all likelihood defend against Ward.

Co-main Event: Kendall Grove vs. Brett Cooper

Prediction: Cooper by strikes. This tournament is supposed to be a shortcut for Kendall Grove to a title shot but Cooper can play spoiler.

Desmond Green vs. Will Martinez

Prediction: Green by decision. Green defeated Mike Richman in the first round and will now face a dangerous Will Martinez but can win.

Daniel Weichel vs. Matt Bessette

Prediction: Bessette by decision. Bessette was able to pull what can be an upset against Diego Nunes and now is a win from the finals.

Will you be watching the Bellator fights this weekend and do you think the UFC should have more Sunday cards? Leave a comment!
