Mirsad Bektic vs Russell Doane
Impressive and efficient 1st round finish by Bektic. Definitely a fighter to keep an eye on. The bet is off to a winning start.
Stefan Struve vs Daniel Omielanczuk
Although there were a couple of wobbly moments early in the 1st round where Omielanczuk was able to land a few shots on Struve’s noggin, once the big Dutchman got going, the jump in class showed, especially on the ground. 2nd round submission keeps my bet going.
Ovince Saint Preux vs Jimi Manua
Jimi Manua is a bad dude. He was a little slow to get going and OSP was the looser fighter early doors, but once Jimi started landing his strikes, it was an execution. What a savage?!?
Vitor Belfort vs Gegard Mousasi
Fabulous performance by Mousasi. He picked Vitor apart throughout round 1, then moved through the gears in the 2nd and got the finish. Vitor looks done, at least at this level.
Michael Bisping vs Dan Henderson
Damn, what a war. Three H-Bombs landed, but this time Bisping survives it to take a well-earned decision win. He’ll be glad he doesn’t have to fight Henderson ever again. And eurgh, that face. Bit of recovery time required before he meets any of the other middleweights that he gave a bollocking to in his post-fight interview.
Tidy win of £10 returned £73.22
