And we are live in Oklahoma. A lot of gold Tapout shirts in the crowd. Were they giving those out at the door? And hey, Kenny Florian is subbing tonight for Joe Rogan, who’s filming a movie with Kevin James. Christ. Dana White’s head must be spinning now. A cameo in a Paul Blart: Mall Cop sequel is gonna make you a movie star? Gimme a fuckin’ break.

Wow, this Assasin’s Creed commercial is lasting forever. Free TV is never really free, is it.

Creduer gets up and takes more punches to the jaw, but remains on his feet. He’s very unsteady. It devolves into a slugfest. Creduer gets caught again and falls to guard.

Quarry def. Credeur via unanimous decision (29-28 x 2, 29-27 from Cecil Peoples) Quarry has a massive mouse under his right eye. He says that first-round knockouts are a lot more fun than three-round wars, and he knew that Tim would come with everything. Credeur says he’ll fight like that every time, for the fans. Sure, dude. It worked for Jorge Gurgel.

And now an extended promo for Surviving Disaster. You guys better pick up the pace or we’ll be here all night.

Carlos Condit vs. Jake Ellenberger

Round 1: Ellenberger stalks forward. He catches a kick from Condit and punches him to the mat. He follows Condit to the mat and gets in his guard. Ellenberger throws down an elbow. Condit gets to his feet and eats a punch, and they separate. Ellenberger nails Condit with three straight right hands after Condit tries a kick, and Condit goes down.

Ellenberger shoots for a single and Condit sprawls, throwing down elbows and punches, then takes Ellenberger’s back and throws punches to the side of Ellenberger’s head to the final horn. He takes the round, but it may not be enough.

Condit def. Ellenberger via split decision (29-28 Condit x 2, 29-28 Ellenberger from Cecil Peoples. As usual, Peoples sees it differently then the other two judges, but I think he got it right this time.)

Hey, it’s good to see Carrot Top getting work again. He should endorse whatever steroids he uses.

Rich Franklin shows up via satellite. He says he’s going to have to keep moving his head against Vitor Belfort on Saturday night, because those punches are going to come at him fast.

Roger Huerta vs. Gray Maynard
Hey, another long commercial, this time for Saw VI. And look, Mr. Saw has something to say about health care reform. And he’s — Oh God. OH GOD THIS IS HORRIBLE! STOP! STOP, SAW!

Round 1: Leg kick Huerta. Maynard throws the right, and clinches, but Huerta gets out. Huerta whiffs the leg kick. Maynard charges forward with a right straight. Roger dashes forward with punches, but gets nothing. Huerta with a leg kick. They trade punches. Maynard with a fast overhand right. Maynard lands a left hook. Huerta stalks forward with a punch combo and lands a couple good ones that seem to briefly rock Maynard. Huerta the aggressor, but takes a shot in return. Jab Maynard. Finally Maynard comes for the takedown, but Huerta defends it against the cage. After taking a knee, Huerta comes forward with more punches. Close round. I might give it to Huerta for pushing the pace a little bit more.

Round 2: Leg kick Huerta, then a body kick. Maynard lands a hard right, snapping Huerta’s head back. More leg kicks from Huerta. Huerta gets tagged in a punch exchange. Huerta stumbles after taking a punch. Maynard goes to the body. A jab from Maynard briefly puts Huerta on his ass. Huerta rushes forward again trying to put something together, but Maynard dodges. Huerta with a leg kick, Maynard returns punches. Maynard with a knee. Huerta lands a left hook, and more punches in a combination. But the horn sounds, and Maynard most likely evens the scorecards.

Round 3: Maynard with the jab. Huerta chases, but doesn’t land on Maynard. Huerta with a knee. Huerta pushes forward with the jab. Maynard shoots, picks Huerta up and and gets the takedown. Roger gets to his knees, and to his feet, but the Bully pulls him back down. Roger flips to escape, but Maynard stays on and sets up a kimura with Huerta’s head caught between his knees. That kimura is nasty-deep. Somehow, Roger doesn’t tap, and gets to his feet. Maynard drags Huerta down yet again. Ah yes, this is the Gray Maynard we know and tolerate. Huerta up again. They dirty-box in the clinch to the bell.

Maynard def. Huerta via split decision (29-28 Huerta, 30-27 Maynard, 30-27 Maynard [Peoples])  No time for a post-fight interview. Guillard better pull off a 30-second KO, or the show’s going late.

Nate Diaz vs. Melvin Guillard

Round 1: After some epic mean-muggery, they get it on. Melvin lands a big right immediately, and sends Nate to the ground. Nate keeps him at bay with his legs, then gets back up. Melvin tries the big right again, but misses. Nate throws the jab and scores a takedown, but Guillard gets up and hip-tosses Diaz, then wisely gets back up. Nate is already bloody near his right eye. Diaz with the takedown. Guillard struggles up and separates. Guillard throws the left hook. Knee from Guillard in a clinch, then a sharp right. Diaz puts his hands up, Stockton-style. Guillard ducks Diaz’s punches. Leg kick Diaz. Diaz stalks forward, but Guillard dodges. Body kick from Guillard. Guillard clinches, and Diaz judo tosses. Guillard pops back up to the horn. I might give it to Guillard for inflicted damage, rather than Diaz for the takedowns.

Round 2: Hard body kick from Guillard. They clinch, and Diaz works his dirty-boxing. Guillard tosses Diaz to the ground, but lets him back up. Jab from Diaz. Guillard lands a nice punch combo. Guillard bounces off the fence and shoots forward with a right hand and a takedown attempt, but shoots right into a guillotine by Nate Diaz. Damn, Melvin. You got sloppy. And Nate Diaz breaks his losing streak.

Anybody who thought Guillard would do shit in that fight needs to go back to the start and begin again learning what mma is. He sucks and any time he hits somebody and they don't stay down, you can literally see the "oh shit" look on his face. Oh, and his name is MELVIN!! corny ass moniker if there ever was one.
ArmFarmer- September 17, 2009 at 4:10 am
I guess any fight that goes to the ground and doesn't end in a submission or tko shortly after is a lay n pray. Nevermind that he boxed for the first two rounds, spent less than a round on the ground, and was active throwing strikes, improving position, and damn near broke his arm off with a deep kimura. Don't you just hate these one dimensional wrestlers.. all they do is strike and grapple and go for submissions wtf.
Nippletwist- September 17, 2009 at 2:42 am
the nipple index (only for the main event)

definitily main event worthy. fight was ill start to finish.

melvin loses the same fucking way again after i keep talking about how hes going to be great. dammit. but did you see those punches he was throwing?? shit was so gnarly. the kicks too were fucking filthy. no one else at 155 has standup like that dude is retarded. and ya know hes 26 and hes won 40 out of 50 fights. and he was getting up really well when put on his back. theres still something there with him, you got to feel bad for the guy this is another big setback. it is starting to feel like if he doesnt knock you out in the first he just wont beat you though.

did you see those punches nate was getting hit with?? kids face is made out of stone. like nick, however his hands are not like nicks. he stockton boxes like nick but hes not as dangerous. takedowns, chin, and submissions still elite, if he learns to strike he'll be a badass.
MGalactic- September 17, 2009 at 12:38 am
Stan beats Cantwell! What the shit.

Dumb ass ref's.

some great fights overall. CP you called it about nate and tim with fight of the night. goddamn grey, fucking lay and pray bullshit in the third round. i'm a pretty big huerta fan, and while he did lose that fight, he did not lose 30-27. condit really needs to drop in weight, if diaz can make it, then so can he. condit is just to small to be a WW in the ufc, he's got great skills, he's just not strong enough to compete at WW in this oraganization. but f' it. as boring as everyone thought this card was gonna be, it turned out to be better than the last PPV and probably better than the next two coming up.
Nut Puncher 9000- September 16, 2009 at 9:06 pm
THAT CUT ON DUDE IN THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER WAS SICK ! ! ! !

Rampage = poor coach. Cool guy. Bad Coach.

se7ensenses- September 16, 2009 at 8:34 pm
That kimura was so deep, Huerta'a kids are going to be born with shoulder problems.
Sheps- September 16, 2009 at 8:32 pm
I know, Rampage was completely on Kimbo's dick.... that felt weird to say.

But yeah, I mean come on, its Kimbo Slice for crying out loud. The guy got knocked out by a jab thrown by a nobody. I think Rampage really is somewhat retarded. He makes Rashad look really smart.

Did anyone else catch the early convo between the two? Rashad said he was told to go up and square off to rampage after his fight, thats so pathetic that the UFC have to create their own rivalries, what the fuck is this? WWE?

If Bisping caught all that hate from last season, Rampage should get a shit ton judging from this first episode.
the glza- September 16, 2009 at 8:22 pm
i think he feels a lot of pressure to play up the rampaginess...

i think kimbo was a great move, but he was such a bitch about it -- it was like he was sucking up to ferguson...
"your name spelled right?" what kind of stupid crap is that?
One Two- September 16, 2009 at 8:20 pm
Damn it CP you talked me out of my Golden rule always throw 50$ bucks on the biggest underdog its MMA. oh well, cantwell another upset. don't know if you guys noticed but during all those commercials after fight night ultimate fighter was on. Boring fight i hate when people get pinned against the cage.
Sheps- September 16, 2009 at 8:09 pm
Rampage just comes off like an idiot in the show. He doesn't care about his fighters and he just seems really stupid and he isn't taking it seriously whereas Rashad comes off as intelligent and actually cares about his chosen fighters.

And Rampage calling that guy titties and pretending to pick him first is just a complete prick move, seriously I didn't know he was such a dickhead. The fact that he chose Kimbo first proved that he is either a huge moron or he just doesn't care, I think its a bit of both.
the glza- September 16, 2009 at 7:30 pm
this show feels different. it's got a different production company behind it, i'll bet.

nike sport combat... nike making fight gear. this sport is getting huge.

boxing is trying to dampen our sport, but mma is trying to compete with the nfl (and gaining ground)...

f those boxing numbnuts!
the glza- September 16, 2009 at 7:24 pm
i have a sinking feeling we're gonna hear a lot of nfl/ufc comparisons...

rampage is quite the prick, eh?

rashad is scared of rampage... he seems always to make passive movements around page

but rashad's gonna win TUF
LittleDoomsday- September 16, 2009 at 7:16 pm
Fucking Cantwell and fucking Cecil Peoples cost me $2,300. I had 50 a seven fight parlay. Thought Cantwell would win for sure and had Huerta upsetting Boring Gray Maynard. Fuck. Oh well.
the glza- September 16, 2009 at 7:11 pm
kimbo's bigger than big country
Frank Mur- September 16, 2009 at 7:10 pm
FUCKIN GUILLARD! Would somebody please train this kid. All He needs is a good trainer and he's instant Trouble for the top three at 155. Did any one see those Judo throws he put on Dias? This dude is a stud (as far as potential goes)
the glza- September 16, 2009 at 7:09 pm
wes shivers?
Sheps- September 16, 2009 at 7:03 pm
Lmfao, Diaz is such a skinny douche bag, watching him trying to act hard is just hilarious. and he's down already, awesome.

Edit: God damn Guillard has so much potential but his dumbass is still stuck fighting on these Fight Night cards. His dumbass needs to get to Greg Jackson if he ever wants to be anything other than a low to mid level fighter.

One Two- September 16, 2009 at 6:48 pm
two judges gave all three rou nds to maynard????? UFC is just like boxing now Bullshit.
Sheps- September 16, 2009 at 6:40 pm
Of for fucks sake, Maynard is such a fucking bore. I knew he couldn't resist the takedown. and what has he done since taking him down? Nothing... just holding him there. That guy is such a bitch.
Jubbie- September 16, 2009 at 6:39 pm
I don't know what's up with Condit. I guess the WEC WW division was just that weak. He's looked active but nowhere near as great in the UFC.
Sheps- September 16, 2009 at 6:36 pm
Why the fuck does Huerta keep fixing his hair. god damn its no where near his eyes, is that guy really that much of a pre-madonna?

Also a big WTF. So Maynard had decided he doesn't want to be a boring wrestler any more? Now he has become a boring striker, all he does is counter, he hasn't took one step forward all night. Man that guy is just boring all around.

He could ride a motorbike while juggling rats on fire and it would still be boring.
Gamecock- September 16, 2009 at 6:34 pm
Huerta is in the Tekken movie due to be out later this year. Not sure how he expecs that to parlay him into a movie career.
