[VIDEO] Spong, Newell Victorious at World Series of Fighting 4


(Tyrone Spong vs Angel DeAnda.)

It may not have been the barnburner that we hoped it would be, but Tyrone Spong improved his MMA record to 2-0 in the main event of last night’s WSoF 4 by earning a unanimous decision over Angel DeAnda.

Spong fought smart, utilizing leg kicks throughout the fight while avoiding DeAnda’s heavy hands for most of the fight. To DeAnda’s credit, he was never dropped by Spong, but he also never mounted any significant offense. At least I don’t think he did; one of the judges scored this fight 29-28.

Okay, so it wasn’t exactly the most exciting fight in recent memory. Fortunately, the rest of the WSoF 4 main card made up for the disappointment that was the main event. After the jump, there’s also videos of a knockout and submission for your viewing pleasure.


(Ray Sefo vs Dave Huckaba)

Though JZ Cavalcante’s (questionable) knockout over Tyson Griffin earned him a spot in the upcoming lightweight tournament, my favorite knockout from last night involved heavyweights Ray Sefo and Dave Huckaba. Yes, you read that correctly.

It’s funny how the fight that many of us were expecting to be one of the ugliest bouts of the year – two old-timers engaged in a conflict of interest will drastically lower your expectations – turned out to arguably be the best fight from last night’s card. Sefo was in control for most of it, but he was caught by a fierce counter left hook that put him out on his feet. A few follow-up punches later, and Huckaba was awarded the standing TKO.


(Nick Newell vs Keon Caldwell)

Also from last night’s card, Nick Newell’s WSoF debut ended predictably. We were given a few takedowns by Newell, a comparison of Newell to Anthony Robles from Todd Harris, and then Newell locked in the fight-ending choke before the end of the first round. Don’t look now, but Newell is now 10-0, with nine of those fights ending in the first round and seven of those fights ending by submission. Expect him to receive a step up in competition for his next bout.

It was entertaining. I couldn't find any streams that worked for the prelims but I would have missed 80% of them and it sounds like I didn't miss much. The event was decent but there were some peculiar things going on that threw it off a little for me. I thought the Griffin stoppage was definitely a bit early, he definitely could have eaten quite a bit more leather he was just stuck at the moment. Hempleman was tough but Moraes really let off the gas and coasted at the end, I felt he could have finished him if he wanted to. Pretty underwhelmed with Spong. I don't think you let a guy with his amount of experience slide on an iffy performance just because he doesn't have that many MMA fights. The hype behind him is that he's a world class KO machine who was going to come right over and start taking names but I don't see him having much to offer against top MMA competition. In what was pretty much a kickboxing match he got tagged quite a bit with some sloppy boxing before his leg kicks set in. Schiavello's right, Newell is a crazy one armed bastard.

If you want a good laugh check out a MMAJunkie "discussion thread" during an event. Jesus.

#1: Martherine! Fuck off and Die!!!
#2: WSOF 4 was an awesome event and if you didn't like it your crazy.
#3: Seeing Sefo get in there and mix it up with a fellow can was tits. It reminded me of watching Tank Abbott fight the Pitbull Fatguy in his backyard just for the hell of it. Great shit.
#4: Nick Newell is inspiring as hell. I winced the whole fight, just hoping his crippled ass wouldn't get crushed and then he pulls off that crazy submission. The spinning elbow he threw was awesome...albeit he was genetically designed for that move.
#5: See number 1!!!

I think I know what you mean, dano. Seeing Nick fight makes me feel like I've wasted my goddamned life (and all inspired, sure, but that's very much parenthetical). Whatever ... It's all so much easier for people with disabilities. Right? Yeah, that's why.

that was the first nick newell fight I've seen. I didn't think it was possible to feel both inspired and disappointed in myself at the same time, but somehow I did. Does anybody know why he fights with his good hand forward?
JayJitsu310- August 12, 2013 at 7:00 am
Maybe so he can jab, and grab easier? I don't know, but it seems logical.
