UFC 160 Results: Cain Velasquez, Junior dos Santos both earn strike-based stoppages

UFC 160 Results: Cain Velasquez, Junior dos Santos both earn strike-based stoppages

Tonight’s offering from the UFC has a little something for everyone, as the main card features a decorated wrestler, a K-1 level kickboxer, one of MMA’s best boxers, a hard-hitting Brazilian behemoth with BJJ skills to boot…and that’s just the night’s top two tilts! Headlined by heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez putting his gold up for grabs against Antonio Silva, UFC 160 is also poised to present pairings like Donald Cerrone-K.J. Noons, Gray Maynard-T.J. Grant, Glover Teixeira-James Te Huna, and Junior dos Santos-Mark Hunt.

The evening’s early action was solid though had little on the PPV portion of the event. Cerrone peppered Noons with strikes, painting the canvas red en route to a decision win, while Grant and Teixeira went on to make their claims at top contendership with first-frame finishes. Finally, Dos Santos picked up an incredible knockout win thanks to a spinning kick landing flush to Hunt’s face in the final round of their rumble, while Velasquez retained his title with another TKO before the second period came into play. Velasquez’s finish came after landing a solid shot, then attacking the grounded “Bigfoot” to seal the deal.

    Always go with Bigfoot, I’ve been right the last two times when everyone said I was incredibly wrong to pick him

  • MCM says:

    I picked him over Overeem and Fedor, but also over Cain and Cormier. I want Bigfoot to win but I have to concede Cain is the more likely victor

    Good first round. Payan had the first half, but Stephens took it back with that cut and those big shots at the end.

    Good lord that’s a lot of blood. Props to Payan for not quitting, but damn he lost a lot of blood.

    Nice comeback. Holy shit! That was an awesome post fight celebration. His buddy didn’t even look irritated that he just got body slammed over the cage.

    I love watching Stephen Thompson’s striking, but his cardio is just insulting. He looks better than in his last fight, but there’s still no excuse for a welterweight to have questionable cardio at this level or competition.

    And if this decision goes the way I think it will, Thompson will be looking for a new job in about 18 hours.

    Well, nevermind then. I guess the judges saw things differently. I did miss the first two minutes of the first round, so maybe something impressive happened then that I didn’t see.

    Nurmagomedov may have set a UFC record for the number of takedowns in a single fight. This is ridiculous.

  • Dufresne says:

    He should get a bonus for mauling of the night. That was one of the most one sided fights I’ve ever seen. Didn’t they say Trujillo was a NCAA wrestler? If so, he either wasn’t very good, or Nurmagomedov is phenomenal grappler.

  • Dufresne says:

    I’ve got it at 1-1 at this point. But I guess I can see it being 2-0 Whittaker. Not sure Colton can recover at this point, he’s definitely beat up after that round and Whittaker looks fresh.

    Kinda looks like Noons needs to drop a weight class. He’s shorter and fatter than Cowboy. He may still win, but if he can cut weight life might be a little easier on him.

    Noons got taught the difference between boxing, kickboxing, and MMA. If he doesn’t lose I’m gonna be pissed. He got dominated in all three rounds.

    Much closer fight than I thought it’d be. I figured either Hunt would win by early KO or JDS would pick him apart from a distance.

    Never thought JDS would do that well by just standing against Hunt. When the f*ck did JDS learn to high kick? Looks like we’re headed to either JDS v Bigfoot or JDS v Cain III. great fight. Hate to see Hunt lose though. Looking forward to seeing him against Overeem soon.

    also 7-5 but Halloway got robbed so I’m gonna say 8-4. Catch the fights online mma-core

    Cerrone made Noons leak pretty heavy, but there’s already stains on the canvas.

    i didn’t see it either Stoppage, but if we go off of what Dufresne live commented, it was the Jeremy Stephen’s fight.

    Yeah, Stephens cut Payan up. There’s a pic of it in the Scrap Book slideshow I posted yesterday.
