UFC Fight Night 41 Results: Mousasi Dominates and Chokes Out Munoz

And so, the UFC’s terrifying “two events in one goddamned day” campaign is officially underway. Luckily, the promotion is starting out slow, with a Fight Pass card in Berlin featuring a decent middleweight matchup (Mark Munoz vs. Gegard Mousasi) and a bunch of supporting fights that you couldn’t possibly care about. If you want to skip this one and come back later for the TUF Brazil 3 Finale liveblog, that’s totally fine. And if you want to skip that card as well, we can’t really blame you. I mean, for God’s sake, it’s Saturday. Invite your friends over for a barbecue. Spend time with your family. Read a book. Seriously, when was the last time you read a book? Remember how nice that was?

Since very few of you will be watching, we’ve decided to break in a new liveblogger to see how he performs under low pressure. So please give a warm welcome to our brand-new CagePotato Fight Pass Correspondent Bear Siragusa, who will be plugging live results from the UFC Fight Night 41 main card after the jump, beginning at 3 p.m. ET / noon PT. Refresh the page every few minutes for all the latest, and please shoot us your thoughts in the comments section or on twitter.

Gegard Mousasi vs. Mark Munoz Booked as Main Event of UFC Fight Night Berlin on May 31st


(That was basically my reaction to this booking. / Photo via MMAJunkie)

The UFC Fight Night Berlin show on May 31st was originally supposed to be headlined by a “high-level featherweight contest.” Then, German 145′er Dennis Siver tested positive for a testicle-regrowing serum, and that idea pretty much flew out the window. So, new plan: How about a “winner almost leaves town” match between the last two middleweights to be beaten up by Lyoto Machida?

As announced today by the UFC UK twitter account, Gegard Mousasi vs. Mark Munoz will serve as the five-round main event for UFC Fight Night Berlin. The event will be broadcast on Fight Pass, so you’d have to be a super-hardcore fan to even have the ability to watch this fight if you wanted to. As for the local German fans…sorry guys, this is a rough one. It’s not like Mousasi and Munoz aren’t talented, exciting fighters, but there’s virtually nothing at stake in the matchup and there’s no local hook. Sheila Gaff vs. Benjamin Brinsa would have made more sense here.

Anyway, don’t blame us, blame Dennis Siver’s testicles. We’ll let you know if/when any other notable folks are added to the card.

UFC to Hold Simultaneous Events in Germany and Brazil on May 31st


(In Germany, male MMA fans wearing TapouT gear are commonly known as “douchebaggenbrös.”)

Potato Nation, the New UFC World Order is upon us: For the first time in the promotion’s history, the UFC will hold two events on the same night in two different continents.

UFC officials announced today that a Fight Night event will take place May 31st in Berlin, Germany, at the O2 World Berlin. That’s the same scheduled date as the The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale, which will be headlined by Wanderlei Silva vs. Chael Sonnen (assuming Sonnen is physically capable of competing without TRT, which might be in question at this point). The city and venue for the TUF Brazil 3 Finale card are still TBA.

If you’re an old-school MMA fan, you probably still remember when two UFC events in the same month was a big deal. (That first happened in April 2005, by the way.) UFC president Dana White has been suggesting the “two events, one night” plan as a possibility since 2011, and UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta also mentioned it in November.

The Berlin Fight Night marks the UFC’s first visit to Germany since the underwhelming “Marquardt vs. Okami” card in November 2010, and will reportedly be headlined by a high-level featherweight contest. (Start warming up, Dennis Siver.) Broadcast plans for the May 31st events haven’t been confirmed, but you can safely assume that at least one of these cards will be on Fight Pass. We’ll keep you posted…
