  • MMA Records: Arlovski (15-6); Rogers (9-0)
  • Result: Rogers winner by 1st round TKO. Rogers rises to 8. Arlovski drops to 9.
  • This was not the same Arlovski that fought Fedor. He overlooked a legit Brett Rogers and his glass chin paid the price.

205

Mike Whitehead [26] vs. Kevin Randleman [NR]

  • MMA Records: Whitehead (23-6); Randleman (17-12)
  • Result: Whitehead winner by unanimous decision. Whitehead rises to 23.
  • Randleman is trying to evolve his game but he forgot his wrestling in this one.

Rafael Cavalcante [30] vs. Mike Kyle

  • MMA Records: Smith (16-5); Diaz (19-7)
  • Result: Diaz winner by 3rd round submission (rear-naked choke). Diaz rises to 20. Smith drops to 29.

170

Joe Riggs [NR] vs. Phil Baroni

  • MMA Records: Riggs (29-10); Baroni (13-10)
  • Result: Riggs winner by unanimous decision. Riggs debuts at 67.
  • I’m always amazed at Baroni’s chin. Maybe the best in the sport. But Riggs racks up the win with improved striking.

Mike Brown [1] vs. Urijah Faber [2]

  • MMA Records: Brown (21-4); Faber (22-2)
  • Results: Brown winner by unanimous decision. Brown stays at 1. Faber stays at 2.
  • More impressed by Faber fighting for 4 rounds with his elbows because his hands were broken than i was with Brown getting a decision win.

  • MMA Records: Aldo (14-1); Swanson (13-2)
  • Result: Aldo winner by 1st round TKO. Aldo rises to 3. Swanson drops to 26.

  • Result: Grispi winner by 1st round submission (guillotine). Grispi rises to 14. Pulver drops to 25.
  • I hate to admit it but i”m finally convinced Pulver is done.

  1. You mention Randleman trying to evolve as a fighter and losing his wrestling. Did you see any sign of the evolution? Because all I saw was him forgetting his wrestling…

  2. Gutu,

    I could hear Shawn Tomkins shouting out combinations for him to throw and Randleman was actually listening to him!! Those left hooks in the 3rd round were all shouted out by Tompkins. Also, the fact that he was winning the 3rd round was a major step forward IMO. He usually dominates the 1st and falls apart after. The major evolution was getting rid of Coleman as his main corner man. Instead of receiving instructions to “get him”, “kill him”, “show me the monster”, etc. He was receiving and listening to, sound advice.

  3. Well, that does seem like a big step forward, but how many strikes did Randleman throw during the entire fight? Are you hopeful for Randleman’s future?

  4. Gutu,

    Honestly, I think he’s too old to make a title run. I’m not saying i agree with his choice to evolve but i get the impression he is trying. That impression comes from interviews he’s done and i may be wrong but from the fight with Whitehead. Yah, he didn’t throw too many punches but i think that was because he is still uncomfortable with doing so.

  5. I get the same impression. He’d been on Inside MMA and it sounded like he was really working on improving. I was looking forward to the fight to see how far he’d come.

    It didn’t look like he’d gotten very far in his evolution and at this point in his career he probably needs to evolve faster.

  6. This must have been quite a bit of work holmes. Great post. Alot of these fights I never would have seen.
    In just what I seen in this .gif I think Tom Attencio would whopps Dana’s ass real quick.
