UFC 112 Preliminary Card Results and Bonuses

Since UFC 112 featured two title fights that both went the distance in completely baffling fashion, we didn’t get to see much preliminary card action, with the exception of Phil Davis’s first-round stoppage of Alexander Gustafsson. Here’s how the dark matches shook out…

– Phil Davis def. Alexander Gustafsson via submission (anaconda choke), 4:55 of round 1. 
Rick Story def. Nick Osipczak via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)
– DaMarques Johnson def. Brad Blackburn via TKO, 2:08 of round 3
Paul Kelly def. Matt Veach via submission (guillotine choke), 3:41 of round 2
Jon Madsen def. Mostapha Al Turk via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

With three straight losses, Al Turk is definitely heading to the scrap yard after this one, while Blackburn and Veach may also be in trouble after suffering their second-consecutive defeats. But enough about those poor losers. Blackburn’s opponent DaMarques Johnson picked up a $75,000 Knockout of the Night bonus for putting Bad Brad away with a body kick in the third round of their fight after getting handled for most of the first two frames. Rafael Dos Anjos was awarded the Submission of the Night bonus for his armbar of Terry Etim, while the Fight of the Night was given to Mark Munoz and Kendall Grove for their two-rounder, which Munoz won via TKO after almost getting finished repeatedly in round one.

"Maybe Silva's fight will turn out like the last time he fought a submission expert so these jackass fans that didn't like the GSP/Hardy fight will remember what a real boring fight looks like. Oh, that reminds me of another reason Anderson Silva is a giant douche. GSP apologized to the fans after having what he considered a bad fight, while Anderson claimed that his fight with Leites was flawless and that the fans were just too dumb to appreciate what they were seeing."

This was my comment a week ago in the ufc 112 video hype article. Am I a fucking Nostradamus or what? Not only did I predict it would turn out like the Leites fight but I also predicted that he would pull that same bullshit of apologizing in the ring and then taking it back afterwards and defending his shitball performance. Other things I was ahead of the curve on include: UFC blatantly exaggerating carwin's height and the odd fact that there seems to be more more giant sized condoms in Walgreen's than there are people who can wear them. oh, and that BJ isn't p4p better than GSP

edit: other things include that there is no time travel because there is no such thing as time, and that there are no such thing as alternate or multiple universes, but those aren't mma related.

Hey CP,

"Dark Matches" I really like that term. The undercards are the where the heart is. I think there is a higher degree of respect for the undercards these days (especially in light of 112). New blood, urgency, violence. Much like the do-or-die vibe within the WEC.

Overall I think UFC 112 will be remembered as a much needed shake-up for the current UFC downfalls. The LWD looks more interesting now, Silva will be forced into harder fights and fans won't tolerate mediocre showings. I think "Finish" is the new necessity of the UFC. Only wars should go to decisions.

I believe Silva's comments translate to " shut the fuck up you whining bitches, I do what I fucking like so the whole MMA comunity can go fuck itself, eat my shit I am the Spider and I have nothing but contempt for you all, especially you Dana"
or something along those lines, I think

Guys, I figured it out. B.J. Penn threw the fight so he can go fight Aoki in Strikeforce.

i really dont see what the fuss is all about. i guess he is suppose to go in and just knock the guy out asap....i liked seeing him show off. he has so much talent so lets see it, i dont have a problem with it. until someone is good enough to stop his "show-boating" who cares?

I think its pretty obvious what needs to heppen with Anderson....

Dana White needs to steal Scott Smith back from Strikeforce and have him fight Silva

Silva can clown around for 4 rounds and then get knocked the fuck out
