Report: Wiman vs. Danzig Rematch Being Targeted for UFC Fight Night 22 On September 15

Heavy.com is reporting that the automatic rematch Dana White promised Mac Danzig after a questionable stoppage in his fight with Matt Wiman at UFC 115 will take place September 15 at UFC Fight Night 22 in Austin, TX.

The controversy arose when Danzig, caught in a guillotine, seemed to be unresponsive to referee Yves Lavigne’s inquiries about whether he was okay or not, prompting Wiman to inform the experienced French-Canadian official that Mac was indeed unconscious.

The problem was, Danzig was still wide awake; he just didn’t want to shift his position as it may have closed the space he had made between Wiman’s forearm and his corotid artery, causing him to fall asleep. 


It was a rookie mistake for Lavigne to take the word of a fighter to end a fight, rather than check on Danzig for himself, but in his defense, Danzig did fail to communicate that he was still conscious.

Semantics aside, Danzig will get another chance to convince the UFC brass that they should keep him in the organization.

1-4 in his past five Octagon appearances, many felt that Xtreme Couture fighter who was The Ultimate Fighter Season 6 winner should have been cut after losing three in a row before Danzig snapped the losing streak with a decision victory over Justin Bucholtz in the fight prior to his loss to Wiman.

Wiman’s future in the UFC also hinged largely upon the pair’s last meeting as he came into the fight 1-2 in his previous three bouts.

The card that will be broadcast live on SPIKE TV and will act as a lead-in into TUF 12.

The rumored card for the event is as follows:

UFC Fight Night 22
Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Frank Erwin Center
Austin, Texas

Demian Maia vs. Alan Belcher
Jim Miller vs. Gleison Tibau
Ross Pearson vs. Cole Miller
Matt Wiman vs. Mac Danzig

Thanks for answering my questions.
However I think you should continue to train. There is something very cathartic about Martial Arts. I can't imagine not doing it 5 times a week. Been going for 15 years now.
I still grin from ear to ear when I land a roundhouse kick on one of my fighters heads and it is even more fun to see a 20-something guy realize a 47 year old was the one that did it to him.
See, your never too old for this shit.
Find a new Dojo or club that isn't so full of themselves or testosterone.

It would seem the only martial art to do in Little Rock Arkansas would be Tae Kwon Do, Being the headquarters for the ATA.

Were you lucky enough to train with Soon Ho Lee?

Why do you not continue your studies and what level belt did you attain?

Also as a Muay Thai instructor I have to ask, what did you like about Kickboxing and why did you not continue?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes it was indeed the headquarters back then, not sure if it still is.

Yes I did train under sensei Lee, but to be honest, he was full of himself, he bragged about his many movie roles.

I did not continue with him past my red belt for the above reason, the lack of respect I had for him, and the fact that I was stationed at LRAFB and was sent overseas for a few reasons during that time.

It's funny that you ask this question about kickboxing. What I liked best about it was the full contact of it, it was boxing with kicks, and I thought thats great, it's good for tournaments and such, but I found as I got into it for about a week or more my instructor would ask me all the time if I had taken Muay thai before I came to him....he admonished me daily that my push kicks, and all front kicks , when I kicked , and my hands were up, as I kicked my hands opened, or widened as I kicked. he said I looked just like a Muay thai person. I "opened" as I pushed, as if to grapple and grab a neck or head lock.
he hated it, and he would kick the living fuck out of my chest each time I did it.....so I stopped taking it.
I stopped for that reason, and the fact I was getting to damn old for it.

A ball kick is another name for a Teeb, or push kick in Muay Thai, also it is referred to as a front kick.
I like the name as it obviously has dual meaning,...and is also one of the kicks I like to land into someones face......which I do, successfully quite often.
My hero at doing this is a Thai named Buakaw por Pramuk he is a master.

Ballkick sure likes to ask questions. Also, I find it kind of funny that a muay thai instructor would go by the alias ballkick. Must teach a lot of "inside leg kicks" I guess.

Drano,...
Just out of curiosity,...do you train in Martial arts?
..are you a fighter?
Or just a fan?
....and if you do train, where do you train and what discipline?
Have you been in the cage or ring?
....what is your record?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
not anymore
not anymore
yes still a fan
little rock Tae kwon dojo---Tae kwon do
I fought in a ring only
5-1 WAS my record.
did a little kickboxing back in the day as well, but not much.

Danzig's a bust. Humans have canines because we're meant to eat meat. Back to the minors vegan.

@dranokills Im sure if you were first you would do it to... Dont be a hater!!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have been first many times, I just post a normal post, saying FIRST every time is just dumb, so yes I am a hater for sure. don't do it anymore it's fucking annoying.

and back to topic: I am glad vegan danzig is getting a rematch I can't wait to see Wiman beat his ass again.

Why is there a picture of Screech up there?
Dick_Misanthropenis- June 29, 2010 at 7:47 pm
Why does Wiman get a pass for claiming a guy who was still resisting him was unconscious when that was clearly not the case? You can tell the resistance between a conscious animated body when you are choking somebody and an unconscious limp body. Wiman desreves to get choked unconscious in this re-match. Yves Lavinge would have been fired a long time ago if he didn't have all of his criminal connections to the Montreal underground.
As Good As Anyone- June 29, 2010 at 5:54 pm
CP: Danzig didn't know Yves was even touching him, his head was located under Wiman. He MAY have been able to hear him, but definitely couldn't see the ref.
Jim Harbaugh Scramble- June 29, 2010 at 5:25 pm
Fuck that self righteous vegan, but he deserves this rematch.

@Rayce
Hold down the left ctrl key and roll the scrollwheel on the mouse towards you.
Now you owe me a tater t-shirt should you ever win one!
jgrant- June 29, 2010 at 5:14 pm
They had Dan Hornbuckle vs Mike Swick, Bryan Baker vs Mario Miranda, Ralek Gracie vs someone and Raphael Davis vs someone listed like it'd be the prelim card for this crappy card that only has one good fight (the main event).
macreadysshack- June 29, 2010 at 4:59 pm
@FreddyFangers It's not really a question of 'What the fuck are you talking about??'

More a question of, 'why the fuck are you talking about this here?!?'

Is this some kind of spam-bot malfunction? Is there a secret code in there about using Axe spray to clean your balls? I guess I'll die not knowing because I'm pretty sure I'm going to die on this evening's commute. Just a gut feeling.

First, I've gotta make a quick stop by the store and get some of that ball spray. I'm pretty sure it's awesome. Again, just a gut feeling.

Liking the rumored card here, especially because it's free.

Does Yves Lavigne get to re-ref the rematch? Seems like it would answer some questions.

Are you making up the Hornbuckle, Gracie, Davis and Baker bouts just because this card sucks? Because I would too. Because this card sucks.

It'd be fun to say some of Bellator guys are coming over but don't just say that. People are idiots. They'll see Hornbuckle and either go "Ugh UFC taking up all the talent" or "Wow glad he got his shot but wtf why would they take him after a loss? He sucks can't even stop a takedown". You can play jokes but not with MMA fans. They have no sense of humor about fighters and news and stuff.

hey guys hoping you could help me out?... How do i fix the spacing on the front page of C.P.? It cuts off the first bit of every sentence/picture and is really annoying. Is it a browser thing?? cause it doesnt do it on my phone browser. Is there a setting I can change??
