UFC145: Thrills As Advertised

After a slow opening bout on the undercard, the highly anticipated UFC145 picked up speed and intensity. By the end a champion retained his belt and some up and comers announced they were a force to be reckoned with.

With twelve total fights on the bill for the evening, fans were treated to a bevy of styles, strengths and abilities. The preliminary bouts featured several rising stars and heavyweight Travis Browne. Browne (13-0-1) could have easily been on the main card and after Saturday nights’ performance it will be hard to keep him off in the future.

UFC President Dana White packed the undercard with some real go-getters. Mark Bocek kicked off the Pay-per View event with a grueling 3 round win over John Alessio in the lightweight division. Mark Hominick and Eddie Yagin followed that bout with a bloody war. Both fighters bloodied the other pretty good. Yagin prevailed with a split decision.

The third bout was a bit of a surprise. Veteran Miguel Angel Torres and rising star Michael McDonald was supposed to be a fight for the ages. It turned out to be a fight for the minutes. McDonald caught Torres with a jarring uppercut and early in the bout sending the bantamweight reeling. Torres was finished off shortly thereafter. Ben Rothwell finished off Brendan Schaub in similar fashion. Schaub brought the fight to Rothwell backing the 265 lb mountain against the fence. A quick flurry of punches landed before the Wisconsin-native leveled Schaub with a looping left hand. By the time Schaub’s shoulders touched the canvas, Rothwell was on him and so was the referee stopping the bout on a TKO.

The co-main event was over almost as quickly as the two bouts that preceded it. Twenty-two year old Rory MacDonald defeated veteran Che Mills in the second round. Mills found himself fending off a barrage of strikes from his back. A gracious bell ended the first round before MacDonald could lock in a submission hold. It only postponed the inevitable for a round. MacDonald pounced on Mills early in the second round delivering a multitude of strikes before the referee stopped the bloody contest.
