Default UFC 134 ***SPOILERS***

Loveland v. Jabouin

Missed the first round because me & my buddy went shopping in Hurricane Irene, but the second round seemed clearly to be Jabouin's. 3rd was actually pretty close, but I think that Jabouin prolly pulled it out since prevented Loveland from instituting his gameplan.

Judges give it to Jabouin in a SD. Who the eff saw that as 30-27 for Loveland????

Man, that was really weird to see a Brit who focused on his wrestling. You'd think that coming from a country with such poor wrestling, he may want to change things up...

From MMAFighting.com:

Round 1: Here we go. A little history for the first UFC card in Brazil in 13 years. And we start with the only fight of the night not involving a Brazilian. Jabouin is from Canada, Loveland from the U.S.A. Crowd sounds very loud as they meet in the middle. Loveland comes at Jabouin early. Spinning back kick from Jabouin, a Tristar Gym product. Loveland is a wrestler, and he tries to tie things up momentarily. And about a minute in, we get another kick from Jabouin, then some nice short punches from Loveland. Another Jabouin kick is caught by Loveland, and he takes Jabouin to the ground with it. Loveland trying to work some short ground and pound from half guard. He tries to pass, but winds up in butterfly guard. Loveland gets to half guard and looks for an arm, but abandons it. The ref stops the fight and has Stitch Duran cut off a loose piece of tape from Loveland's glove but doesn't put them back on the ground on the restart. That's a big advantage for Jabouin, who was being controlled on the ground by "The Barn Owl." Good left body kick from Loveland, but Jabouin counters with a kick to the ribs of his own. Right hand from Loveland backs Jabouin up. Loveland rushes in and just misses with a few wild punches. Jabouin throws a low kick. Then another, which Loveland counters with a nice punch. Jabouin throws another back kick that just misses, then absolutely rocks Loveland with a right that backs him up and just misses a follow-up knee. That made the round a lot closer, but we'll give it to Loveland for his control and aggression though it's close.

Round 2: Pretty easy takedown from Loveland in the first three seconds and into side control, but a nice reversal from Jabouin, who gets back to his feet. Loveland gets a guillotine for just a moment, but it's not there and Jabouin now has top position on the ground in Loveland's guard. Loveland tries for a triangle that isn't there, then sweeps and gets to half guard looking for ground and pound. Back on the feet, the pace slows for a few ticks. Jabouin throws a left kick and follows it with a beautiful spinning back kick that pushes Loveland to the cage. They re-set, and Jabouin again throws a spinning back kick at the same time as Loveland looks for a front kick, and Jabouin's lands in the nether regions. We get a very brief pause, but Loveland's OK. Spinning back fist from Jabouin lands he's a tilt-a-whirl in there tonight. Loveland gets another takedown, though a nice Jabouin sprawl limits its effectiveness. Big body shot from Jabouin, and then a double-leg takedown from Jabouin with 10 seconds left should give him the round. We'll score it 10-9 for Jabouin, and that makes it 19-19 on the MMA Fighting card heading to the last round.

Round 3: Early kick from Jabouin is countered by a short combo from Loveland. Jabouin looking for his next opening, then lands a couple outside leg kicks. He stuffs a Loveland takedown attempt, and at this point Jabouin looks like he has a little more left in the tank. Jabouin shoots for a takedown and gets it, but Loveland pops back up immediately. Right uppercut by Loveland just misses. He counters with a right that lands, then some jabs. Jabouin shoots, but pushes off when he sees it's not there. Spinning back fist again lands, and Loveland ties him up looking for a takedown that doesn't happen. High right kick from Jabouin is partially blocked. With two minutes left, Loveland probably needs to mount some decent offense. A side kick from Jabouin lands. Spinning back kick to the body lands, which is followed by two near misses with head kicks. Loveland's takedown is stuffed, and Jabouin gets a small takedown on the fence. Back up, Jabouin lands a right and the last few seconds see a short flurry and a takedown attempt from Jabouin that isn't there. We'll give the third to Jabouin, 10-9, and the fight to him 29-28 though it could be a 30-27 from some judges.

Result: Yves Jabouin def. Ian Loveland, split decision (27-30, 29-28, 29-28)

I thought the same thing, typical lousy judging by one of them.

Man, these two are scary! Came out firing, but Alcantara is getting the better of the exchanges. He's more aggressive, both standing & now on top in the half guard. I'd give the first to Yuri.

Man, Alcantara is really slick on the ground! He just had a nice guard pass to knee on belly to full mount to triangle attempt! I effing hate Mario Yamasaki! He stands you up if you stop to take a breath on the ground!!! Rnd 2 should also definitely be in favor of Yuri.

Man, great timing on that takedown & straight to the back! Arantes rolled nicely into guard, but Yuri's throwing some nice chipping elbows from the bottom a la Kenny Florian (who's filling in for Joe Rogan tonight, FYI). Mario stands 'em up again when Filipe's throwing GnP. Arantes tries a flying knee, but Alcantares catches it & takes him down immediately. Another stand up & yet another great takedown by Alcantares. Yuri stuffs a triangle attempt & steps over into mount.

Oughta be 30-27 for Yuri. Judges agree.

Round 1: Nice hand for Alcantara, a Brazilian. Arantes, also a Brazilian, trains out of New Jersey. And Alcantara moves in quickly with a combination against the fence. Then he counters a leg kick with a nice combo. Spinning back kick from Arantes is nice, but Alcantara comes back with a nice elbow. Another Arantes kick is checked by Alcantara. Southpaw stance for Alcantara, and he throws a big looping left that is blocked. He catches a kick, then clinches and gets an easy takedown. Arantes on the bottom in half guard as Alcantara tries to pass. He can't, and settles back into half guard. Nice left hand from the bottom by Arantes. Alcantara tries to soften Arantes up with some body shots. Then he postures up and delivers a handful of lefts to the head, passes guard to side control and then tries to mount. He can't, and it's back to half guard. Arantes is cut under his right eye. Mario Yamasaki stops the fight with a minute left in the round to stand them back up though they hadn't been dormant down there for very long. Good left jab form Alcantara. Spinning back kick from Arantes doesn't land in the last 10 seconds. MMA Fighting scores the round for Alcantara, 10-9.

Round 2: High kick from Arantes is partially blocked. We trade jabs and kicks, but nothing of much consequence until Alcantara gets the fight back to the ground, then passes to side control. He spins and works his way to mount quite nicely, and Arantes could be in a world of trouble now. But Arantes is able to wriggle out when Alcantara looks for an arm triangle from the top. Alcantara has to settle for full guard again, but soon after Yamasaki again stands them back up. Arantes lands a nice knee from the clinch, but Alcantara uses the clinch for a nice takedown against the cage and lands some body shots from half guard. It's another 10-9 round for Alcantara on our card.

Round 3: Early takedown from Alcantara, who pretty easily takes Arantes' back and looks to secure a body triangle. But Arantes gets a nice reversal and spins out. He gets top position and tries to land some ground and pound from Alcantara's guard. Arantes probably needs to do enough this round to actually end the fight, not just win the round. Alcantara holds onto an arm to try to limit the damage. Arantes stands up and looks to land leg kicks while Alcantara is on his back, then dives in to look for some power bombs. Halfway through the round, Arantes continues to land some decent ground and pound. And even though he's working on landing shots, Yamasaki stands them up. Arantes throws a quick flying knee, and Alcantara catches it, takes the fight to the ground, and Arantes is on his back. With about a minute left, Arantes looks to scramble out. And again Yamasaki stands them with 45 seconds left and that was a reasonably good standup. Alcantara gets a single-leg and gets the takedown. The fight will end on the ground with Arantes having nothing he can do offensively. Round 3 is much closer, and MMA Fighting will give it a 10-10. But the fight should go to Alcantara, 30-28 on our card.

Result: Yuri Alcantara def. Felipe Arantes, unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)

Round 1: Silva wings a punch and dives in for the takedown right off the bat, but Ramos stuffs it and comes back with a flurry that pushes Silva back. Silva throws out a jab and comes in low behind it with a right that lands cleanly on Ramos' jaw. Ramos goes down and Silva follows with several more rights on the ground. Herb Dean gives it a second, then steps in to stop it. Ramos staggers up to complain, but he can barely stand, proving Dean made the right call.

Erick Silva def. Luis Ramos via TKO (punches) at 0:40 of round one.

Pair of vets here, odd that only one of them has been in the UFC before. Nice counter right from Eduardo! Assuncao (my iPad keeps wanting to auto-correct his name to "Andy Cap" ) had a nice takedown & was landing some nice elbows when the ref stood them up. Nice back & forth round, tough to call it. Eduardo was better standing, but Assuncao hit that nice TD & GnP. I think Eduardo took it.

Matt & Mark just got a shout out from Goldie! Brought up the "brother tandems" in UFC history. Very impressed by the increased TD defense from Eduardo this round. He's not allowed a single one 3min deep into the 2nd. Assuncao finally drags him down with about 45sec & takes his back, working for the choke. Striking was about even, but I think the TD & sub attempt swung it in Assuncao's favor.

Goldie calls Kenny "Joe" & Florian's gracious enough to gloss over it & move along with the commentary. Eduardo is fighting like he lost the first two, so maybe I missed something from round 1, maybe the takedown counted for more than I thought? Assuncao gets a nice high crotch single & lands some nice GnP from standing half guard. Now Eduardo's swinging for the fences. Huge spinning back high kick barely misses!

I give the fight to Assuncao 29-28, Florian was calling it 30-27. We'll see what the judges say: they agree.
