Guten Tag! UFC 122 is on the cusp of firing up from the Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany and Five Ounces of Pain will be here bringing readers live results as they unfold starting at approximately 12:30 PM EST. The event is headlined by a bout between 185-pound contenders Nate Marquardt and Yushin Okami with the added bonus of a middleweight title-shot on the line.
Okami has won five of his last six fights and is coming off back-to-back victories over Lucio Linhares and Mark Munoz. He has racked up a 9-2 record since signing with the UFC and is 25-5 overall.
Comparably, Marquardt has emerged with his hands raised four of the previous five times he’s stepped into the ring with the most recent “W” coming by way of first-round TKO over submission-specialist Rousimar Palhares. In addition to Palhares, the winner of thirty professional bouts thus far in his career has also beaten the likes of Demian Maia, Jeremy Horn, and Kazuo Misaki.
Also lined up for tonight’s show, Ultimate Fighter Season 7 champ Amir Sadollah will look to avoid a second consecutive defeat when he faces 23-year old German product Peter Sobotta. In addition to their match-up, light heavyweight journeyman Vladimir Matyushenko will attempt to bounce back from his vicious TKO loss to Jon Jones this past August against newly signed BJJ-machine Alexandre Ferreira (who has seventeen submissions in eighteen total wins), with Krzysztof Soszynski, Dennis Siver, Jorge Rivera*, and a slew of other talented fighters slated for action.
If you are hoping to flip on Spike TV tonight with the event left unspoiled, this is definitely the time you want to stop reading this page.
