UFC 138 Aftermath: Mad World

(2 rounds…10 minutes…600 seconds…that is when this fight will end.)

The UFC’s first ever 5 round non-title affair started off on a rather eerie note last night, as Chris Leben crept toward the octagon accompanied by the song that did for Donnie Darko what “Lux Aeterna” did for Requiem for a Dream. And perhaps the haunting ballad was a sign of things to come, as it took just 2 rounds for Mark Munoz to make Leben hide his head and drown his sorrow like there was no tomorrow, no tomorrow. We can only hope now that Leben doesn’t decide to go joyriding after drowning said sorrows.

Leading up to the fight, many pundits out there believed that Munoz’s wrestling and clinch game would be a deciding factor, but for most of the first round, Early 90′s Scott Weiland was able to keep Munoz at bay, even managing to secure a couple takedowns of his own. But as the second round got under way, it was clear that Leben was much worse for the wear, throwing increasingly slower and sloppier combinations and allowing “The Filipino Wrecking” Machine to unleash some of the vicious ground-and-pound that has become his M.O. And then, in perhaps the most shocking turn of events in Leben’s career, he quit. Think about that for a second. A man who has earned his reputation from absorbing near Noguerian levels of punishment (I said near) decided that he had had enough. A mad world indeed.

Now, I’m not going to argue over how bad the cut was, or whether or not the doctors would have allowed Leben to continue for that much longer, but I must say that I never thought I would see the day that the granite-skulled TUF 1 alum would go out on anything but his shield. I’m also not going to over analyze the fact that Munoz called out Anderson Silva in his post-fight interview, because I’m pretty sure even Munoz didn’t think that one out. Take a number, bro.

And if, like myself, you were unconvinced that Renan “Barao” was for real, well then kids, sit and listen, sit and listen. Backing up the hype of his 26-1 record, Barao looked like a man possessed in his bantamweight contest with Brad Pickett, unleashing beautiful combinations at every turn before dropping the Brit with a knee and leaping like a goddamn spider monkey into a rear-naked choke to spoil Pickett’s UFC debut in just over 4 minutes of the first round. A disappointing start to Pickett’s UFC career, but I imagine the $70,000 Fight of the Night check he received helped mend some of his wounds.

In other action, Thiago Alves battered UFC newcomer Papy Abedi with strikes before dropping the Swede and securing a first round rear-naked choke victory. I find it kind of funny (I find it kind of sad) that this is the first time we’ve seen Alves utilize the skills that earned him a brown belt in BJJ, but I guess there’s a time and a place for everything. Let’s hope Abedi, on the other hand, gets another chance to showcase his skills inside the octagon, because the man has potential if nothing else.

After more than a year on the shelf since his armbar loss to Rafael Dos Anjos back at UFC 112, Terry Etim showed up bright and early for the daily races, putting away Edward Faaloloto with a guillotine choke in just 17 seconds. Etim walked away with not only the victory, but a $70,000 Submission of the Night award as well. Considering the time it took him to earn it, Etim may have made more money per second than James Toney did when he was schooled by Randy Couture at UFC 118. I’m not going to do the math, because my religion prohibits it on weekends. All hail Zorp.

But even Etim’s victory was not the most impressive of the night. UFC 138 was just as much Che Mills’ coming out party (not that kind) as it was for anyone else. The Gloucester, England native needed just 40 seconds to uncork a Muay Thai ass whooping on Chris Cope that he won’t soon forget. Scratch that, I’m pretty sure Cope won’t remember a damn thing until he sees the fight replay in a couple days. Mills’ brutal series of knees earned him Knockout of the Night honors and household recognition for at least a couple weeks. Not bad for a night’s work. Full results from the event are below.

RIP Smokin Joe Frazier, one of the greatest fighters we've ever seen
fatbellyfrank- November 7, 2011 at 10:26 pm
hahahahaha j3t is not a very clever fellow is he
dranokills- November 7, 2011 at 10:23 pm
Let me make it real simple for everyone. J3T is nothing but a poser troll. We can all ignore him now, he has run out of excuses, and words to say, it is now repetition.
Between the fucking children like jack off 3 times, and the captha, and the goddamn lame spam I am beginning to wonder if Ben likes this shit. Hey Ben you ever gonna give us a STRAIGHT answer on removing trolls and spam? TODAY would be great. We don't mind arguing amongst ourselves cause it is mostly MMA related but this troll has wasted enough space don't you think?

And if anything its your lame fatass who is barking louder and louder cause you live far away. I ain’t know where your fatass stayed when I called you out just like these others faries who talk but back down like ninja
So you didnt know where i stayed when you called me out, but on Sunday, in one of your frothing at the mouth "lets get it on" posts you state "LMAO fat ass frank, I knew all Aussies were pussies." So, you must have had some idea where i was from. You need to keep a record of all your mouthin off, you cant even remember what you said, and now your just making shit up and catching yourself out, and your right, Drano and i do deserve each other cuppla fucken CP legends, and dont you forget it little boy
NinjaVanish- November 7, 2011 at 8:52 pm
Who is backing down? I could meet you at 205 lbs (One weight class up from what I fight at) and you'd be paid a hundred bucks for travel (most state law will allow for ammy travel.) More than you would get flying across the world, and since I live in the exact middle of the country, its the easiest availability to you. I give you two months, which is enough time to get ready. You are so sure of yourself, why not give it a try? People would at least respect you for putting your money where your mouth is.

I just want commitment, commitment you would actually not waste my time by backing out and not showing up. Also the knowledge you don't have fucking Hep would be reassuring. I have an ammy record of 1-1 and a handful of unsanctioned fights in fight night organizations that existed before the state passed laws here in 2010. I'm by no means looking to fight an easy fight, I'm not a pro, you very well could whoop my ass.

So I'm not backing out of shit, you're just to pussy to sign your name on the dotted line and actually take a fight. Stick to playing UFC undisputed from your mom's basement and talking about how tough you are.
fatbellyfrank- November 7, 2011 at 8:47 pm
^ so thats your answer, your a confused little troll arent you
NinjaVanish- November 7, 2011 at 8:41 pm
@j3t: Oh okay so you were just talking out your ass, cute.
J3t- November 7, 2011 at 8:36 pm
You scared boy, I told you I don't want to talk about shit else but that so contact me so we can fight or STFU. You just trying to put on a show for your boyfriends on here.

And if anything its your lame fatass who is barking louder and louder cause you live far away. I ain't know where your fatass stayed when I called you out just like these others faries who talk but back down like ninja

Oh well maybe you can stay up and read all of dranos long ass paragraphs nobody pays attention too. Yall two losers deserve each other, pussies!

fatbellyfrank i told your fat ass what ima do stop talking around it and contact me already.
So let me get this straight, even though you said you'll come to me, and I've said fine, and asked you to post your flight details at least a dozen times now, thats not contact? your not gettin any contact details of me fucktard, your the only one stupid enough to give out those sort of details. We have a public forum right here which we seem to be able to contact each other on, so just book your flight, use your $1000 dollars, no need to put up a purse, and post your flight details, and I'll pick you and drano up from the Airport
fatbellyfrank- November 7, 2011 at 7:16 pm
@ Drano, its obvious he doesnt wanna know anything about someone who can actually get to him within 24 hours, there were 4 posts before mine tellin him to put up or shut up, he chooses to call out the guy 10,000 miles away, I think we can all draw our own conclusions from that
fatbellyfrank- November 7, 2011 at 7:11 pm
j3t, ok fuckwit, as your memory seems a bit suspect, i'll remind you of what you said:
so your coming to me, send your flight details
I got vacation time saved up at work and everything so ain’t not excuses from this side baby boy, lets get it
So you've got plenty of time, post your flight details
Put up or shut up. I’ll put up $1000 that you can’t see these hands.
So you've got plenty of cash, post your flight details

Stop trying to weasel out of the situation yer dopey fucken mouth dropped you in.
Book a flight, post the details on CP, I meet you at the airport, we take it from there, just post your flight details.
J3t- November 7, 2011 at 6:58 pm
fatbellyfrank i told your fat ass what ima do stop talking around it and contact me already.

dranokills- November 7, 2011 at 6:53 pm
hey jackoff 3 times, if you fly to oz i will be on the plane with ya, and when my brother from down under begins to beat your ass, I'm gonna hand him a beer, and ask him ever s nice if I can jump in, and Im gonna beat you half to death. when Im done, and when FBF kills the beer, I'm gonna get up shake his hand and smile and let him beat you the rest of the way to death, then we are gonna leave your corpse in the outback for the dingos........and go have many beers.
No matter where you go, I will be there to whip your ass, so if your a pussy and wont go to Australia, and your to big of a cunt to fight karma, I guess you can go to iowa......and I will go there as well, just to rip your head off and shit down your neck. have a nice day cyber troll.

@Ninja: Homie if you wanna thump we can thump, I don't want to hear shit about rules and weightcuts this ain't the UFC this the real world. If you want to fight lets do it, if not shut up!!

@Everyone else: Hahahahaha I can say the smallest things and you get so pissed off!! Emotional bitches
KarmaAteMyCat- November 7, 2011 at 1:05 pm
Whoa Whoa, Who's hiding? Hey FBF if this fight goes down Lemme know I'll come watch it. This would be awesome, don't underestimate the little guys there Mr. Six foot Two. That never works out well for people.
Hank Mardukis- November 7, 2011 at 12:28 pm
Gotta love when a brain damaged person figures out how to use the internet. And a computer for that matter, its really quite an accomplishment.

@ j3t
y u be trollin? u mad tuff guy? Seriously, even for a troll you're fucking retard. Cunt.

Don't even bother with this clown. However, if this fight ever goes down, please record and post the ass beating you're sure to inflict for all the potato nation to see.
fatbellyfrank- November 7, 2011 at 1:15 am
@ j3t. OK i think everyone else has had enough of this shit so heres my final comment to ya
You've called me out for a fight in at least 6 comments
You've said you'll come to me
You abused my wife
You abused my country
You abused my countrymen
You've called me a coward in at least 4 posts
You tell me your gonna smash my fucken face in
You say i'm ducking you?
You say you'll put up $1000? use it for the airfare

This aint going away fuckwit, but from now on its just between me and you, no one else needs to be bored with our shit.
As I've said post flight details on this site once you book, you need to fly into Cairns. failing that, as I've said, I'm heading Stateside next year.(early, by Easter)and unless you've posted a bullshit e-mail address, I'll contact you and we'll catch up and sort this out once and for all.
PS you seem to have this idea I'm 5'4' and 130lbs, you prepare for someone that size and we'll see how it works when I land on your doorstep
NinjaVanish- November 7, 2011 at 1:02 am
J3t, can you make 185 by January? I'll fight you in an ammy fight if you want to come to Iowa and throw down. All you need is bloodwork and I know a couple of solid promoters.
J3t- November 7, 2011 at 12:22 am
Thanks I try =)
RwilsonR- November 6, 2011 at 11:31 pm
Yeah, I read the thread and how it unfolded J3T. I just came away with the distinct impression that you're a loser.
jfjjfjff- November 6, 2011 at 10:11 pm
very funny recap. write-ups like this are why i keep coming back here.
fatbellyfrank- November 6, 2011 at 9:57 pm
^ OK, this was entertaining at first but now your being even more stupid.Cuppla points;
You keep bagging out Karma, i tell you put up or shut up
You lose your shit and call me out from 10,000 miles away
Dont know how you can back away from someone 10,000 miles away
I talk shit and YOU accept my challenge???,sounded like you callin me out,I just told ya to put up or shut up. It takes a special kind of stupid to call someone out from 10,000 miles away over the internet and then be all surprised that I didn't show up at your door, but, as we've seen from you posting an e-mail address, you are a special kind of stupid.
Bottom line. If I dont see your flight details to Australia posted on CP in the comments section, I'll assume your not coming, and i'll be sure to get in touch when I get to the US next year.
J3t- November 6, 2011 at 9:16 pm
Lmao wow. So I'm the big tough guy? I'm not the one who picked a fight. I never once said I wanted to fight or I was going to kick someones ass until FATASS FRANK opened his mouth and started talking shit saying like "why dont you fight karma" and I say sure. I say how about me and you fight, Sir fatass since you like to instigate and he backs off scared and that MAKES ME the fake tough guy? Because he talks shit and I accept his challenge, call his bluff and raises him one. And now he's trying to make fun of me because I'm not a midget and use it against me? "DUDE YOUR 6'2 WHAT A LOSER!! HAHA 215 lbs HAHAHA!!!" I'm sorry I can't be cool and 5'4 that's out of my control bro.

Hilarious! Anyone with there own mind can go read the thread and see what happened.
netterbog- November 6, 2011 at 8:28 pm
Fighters Only reporting that Leben's cut was insane - 21 lbs in 24 hours. I thought he looked gassed at about 2 minutes into round one, and just not himself all night. Bummer, but he'll be back in the mix soon enough.
