Tito Ortiz Keeps His UFC Job, Cruz Retains Title
UFC 132 Play by Play
The UFC bantamweight grudge for the title is settled as there was real hatred between the two 135 pound fighters. Both fighters came out with a frenetic pace and Cruz’s unorthodox style confused Faber as they traded shots. In a very close fight Faber finally landed a shot that sent Cruz to the ground in the forth.
By the fifth and final round Cruz got a couple of takedowns and was more aggressive in the round and retained the UFC 153 pound bantamweight title.
The first fight on the pay per view was Dong Hyun Kim versus Carlos Condit. Condit was able to wait and finally land a flying knee that KO’ed Kim in the first round. He is definitely the number one contender to face Georges St Pierre for the title. The problem is that GSP and Condit are teammates.
Tito Ortiz’s back was against the wall as he came in to fight Ryan Bader. Dana White said he would get cut from the UFC if he lost. But Tito showed everyone he is back and healthy as he was able to almost KO Bader with a right hand and Ortiz pulled guard and choked out Bader with a guillotine choke to keep his job in the UFC.
Both Matt Winman and Dennis Siver came into their fight with 3 fight win streaks and one fighter would move up the ladder and one would fall. In the second round Wiman was able to get the takedown and he cut open Siver with elbows from the guard cutting Siver in two different spots.
The fight ended going to the judges and Dennis Siver won a unanimous decision victory that stunned the crowd.
The next fight was a fight that had fight of the night all over it, as Wanderlei Silva and Chris Leben squared off. This was a fight that everyone wanted to see as both fighters like to put on a show. Silva came out swinging but Leben came back and stops Silva. This might be Silva’s last MMA fight.
As sad as it seems, Silva is way too old and too slow to fight anymore.
All preliminary fights went the distance as Jeff Hougland, Anthony Njokuani, Aaron Simpson and Brian Bowles won all their fights with a three round unanimous decision victories.
The preliminary fights on Spike TV started out with Rafael dos Anjos just leveling George Sotiropoulos with a first round KO. Melvin Guillard had a tough test in his fight with All American wrestler Shane Roller. Guillard used his speed to counter the shot attempts but Guillard’s striking was way too much as he was able to KO Roller in the first round. With 50 MMA wins he must be in line for a title shot soon.
The next UFC event will be UFC 133: Evans vs. Davis that will be held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on August 6, 2011 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
