UFC 67 ALL OR NOTHING Ultimate Fighting Championship Silva Is Winner

Anderson SilvaUFC 67 ALL OR NOTHING Ultimate Fighting Championship fight between Anderson Silva vs Travis Lutter in Las Vegas, on February 3, 2007. Lutter both disappointed mma fans in Las Vegas, Nevada real estate by being overweight at the weigh-ins and his second round submission to “The Spider” with 3-0 and 18-4 overall.

Silva thinks his jiu-jitsu skills can beat anyone in his weight class. Chris Leben and Rich Franklin UFC fights were both stopped in the first rounds. This fight in the Mandalay Bay Octagon was no easy match against Travis Lutter.

Lutter wanted an early takedown in this non-title UFC match but with Silva’s swift feet he made his moves effortlessly. A flying knee happened moments later with Lutter blocking, who got the takedown of the Brazilian. This was the first time in his Ultimate Fighting Championship time that Silva fought off the attack and stood back up. The mighty Texan then pulled him down again. Silva then fought back from the bottom. One minute remaining, Lutter took side control and a full mount. Silva took the beating by Lutter and regained his strength standing back up. The crowd’s cheers were loud.

The second round Lutter opened with a takedown and Silva kicked to the head from the mat. Silva used a triangle choke on the hurt Lutter. The Ultimate Fighting Champion used both hands to pound away at Lutter. At the 2:11 mark Travis had to tap out.

World Fighting Alliance Rampage Jackson Win Over Matt Lindland

World Fighting AllianceWorld Fighting Alliance MMA Rampage Jackson win over Matt Lindland. The Los Angeles Forum hosted about 8,000 people, I saw Jason “Mayhem” Miller choke his opponent into submission, then show love to his followers (he dubs them “Mayhem Monkeys”) by shouting: “Woo-WOO!” I saw a Dutch man with a Spanish nickname — Bas “El Guapo” Rutten. “El Guapo” means handsome, and when the bald-headed Rutten was asked where he ranks among the fighters, he said: “The best-looking one, that’s for sure.”

Finally, in Quinton “Rampage” Jackson’s split decision victory over Matt Lindland in Saturday night’s main event, I saw one of the most amazing feats of strength I’ve seen in sports. With Lindland trying to choke him into submission, Jackson was somehow able to get to his feet and toss Lindland off. When asked in the ring if he’d be down for a rematch, Jackson said: “As long as I get paid. Cha-ching!”

As Jackson explained, “A lot of people in my sport are crazy. You’ve got to be crazy to get locked in a cage.”

Among the faces in the crowd: Shaquille O’Neal and Bruce Willis. O’Neal, in town to fulfill his duties as a reserve member of the Los Angeles Port Police, said he was in his hotel room when he heard about the World Fighting Alliance event and decided to come over. O’Neal likes to consider himself a martial arts expert, well versed in his own discipline of Shaq Fu, but he said you won’t find him in the ring.

If you’ve heard of mixed martial arts — in which everything short of eye-gouging, rabbit punches and kicks to the groin are legal — you’re probably familiar with UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship, which pulled an almost $3-million gate and $24-million pay-per-view haul for an event at Staples Center in May and is selling out the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. One sign that mixed martial arts is gaining legitimacy is that one of the most familiar faces in boxing, Marc Ratner, whom you might remember from the Mike Tyson hearings, left his job as executive director of the Nevada Athletic Commission to become Ultimate Fighting Challenge vice president of government and regulatory affairs.
