UFC Fight Night: Silva vs Irvin


Recommended Posts

Comes on tomorrow night. Afflictions first show is on PPV tomorrow as well.

 

Here's the card/weigh in results.

 

-Anderson Silva (206) vs. James Irvin (207.5)

 

-Brandon Vera (204) vs. Reese Andy (206)

 

-Frankie Edgar (155) vs. Hermes Franca (155)

 

-Jake O'Brien (236) vs. Cain Velasquez (236)

 

-Anthony Johnson (170) vs. Kevin Burns (171)

 

-Jesse Taylor (184) vs. C.B. Dollaway (186)

 

-Rory Markham (170) vs. Brodie Farber (171)

 

-Nate Loughran (183) vs. Johnny Rees (183)

 

-Brad Blackburn (170) vs. James Giboo (170)

 

-Dale Hartt (156) vs. Shannon Gugerty (156)

 

-Tim Credeur (185) vs. Cale Yarbrough (186)

 

Apparently Irvin was given time to lose the 1.5 pounds he needed to cut before his final weigh in. I think he made 206 in that time frame.

 

Predictions?

**SPOILERS***

 

Not doing as well in my predictions for this card.

 

Cain Velasquez def. Jake O'Brien by TKO at 2:02, R1

-Kevin Burns def. Anthony Johnson by TKO at 3:35, R3

-C.B. Dollaway def. Jesse Taylor by submission (peruvian neck tie) at 3:58, R1

Kevin Burns did not actually deserve the win though IMO. He continuously poked Johnson in the eye and then in the final moments he got Johnson with a very bad eye poke, but the ref still stopped it and called it a win for Burns by TKO. Not sure why he didn't rule it a DQ or No Contest...

B2R, I believe Silva is going to defend his middleweight belt at UFC 88. I heard he wants to fight again in September, which would be awesome since I'm going to be there.

 

Silva is unbelievable. He completely destroyed James Irvin with one punch.

Yes, it will be the first time I've attended a UFC event live. Rumors are flying around that Silva was supposed to fight Okami at UFC 88 if he was healthy after the Irvin fight. He is probably healthy unless he broke his hand on Irvin's face :lol:.

 

Only problem now is Okami broke his hand and is most likely not going to be ready by September. Hopefully they'll still put Anderson on that card against Cote, or another 205er.

I'd give it to Markham since he's probably not got as much $$ as Silva.

 

That's what Dana should do. :ylsuper:

 

Markham's kick is the new standard for head kick KO's now, ahead of Gonzaga's kick on Cro Cop (both fights were freebies, ironically). I go Markham with Silva's KO of Irvin getting honarable mention for KO of the night.

Too close to call. Maybe Dana can give both of them KO of the night :lol:.

You've gotta go with Markham, Silva's whole set up was impressive, catching the kick, delivering the punch. But as for best KO, that's gotta go to Markham, he did it on the defensive, with one kick. That was it, ha when Markham nailed him the other guy fell like a pencil.
