UFC Fight Night 106: Belfort vs.Gastelum at Fortaleza Final Results

Brazilian icon Mauricio “Shogun” Rua took plenty of hard shots in Saturday’s UFC Fight Night co-main event at the Olympic Training Center in Fortaleza, Brazil, but the former light heavyweight champion gave opponent Gian Villante even more in return, allowing him to score a third-round TKO of the Long Island native and extend his current winning streak to three.
Beneil Dariush looked to be on his way to an upset win in his bout against fellow lightweight contender Edson Barboza, but the Brazilian bomber turned everything around with one shot, using a jumping knee to knock Dariush out in round two.
Albuquerque’s Ray Borg made a major statement in his bout against Jussier Formiga, winning a razor-thin three-round unanimous decision over the highly-ranked flyweight contender.
Alex Oliveira and Tim Means settled their score in welterweight action, Oliveira submitting Means in the second round of their rematch.
An illegal knee by Means rendered their first bout in December a no contest.
Kelvin Gastelum, Edson Barboza, Joshua Burkman and Paulo Borrachinha all earned the Performance of the Night bonus.

Michael Bisping remains to be the middleweight champion of the world after beating the legend and future Hall of Famer Dan Henderson via unanimous decision. This is his 20th wins which made the most wins in UFC history. Bisping just passed Gorges St-Pierre’s record. But it was never an easy one. Hendo gave him massive punches that broke Bisping’s face. The Count escaped the finish in the first and second round. The UFC 204 was held on October 8, 2016 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

Gegard Mousasi extends his win-streak with a huge win against one of the scariest fighters Vitor Belfort who was reportedly retiring after this fight. Belfort was throwing combos countering Mousasi. In the second round, The Armenian Assassin kicked The Phenom in the head then finished him off with ground and pound.

Ovince Saint Preux lost to Jimi Manuwa. He was brutally knocked out by The Poster Boy’s left hook. This competition was important for both men to move on up the LHW rankings and avoid adding one more in their loss record. Manuwa bounced back from a KO loss to Anthony Johnson at UFC 191, while Jon Jones defeated OSP in their short-notice bout at UFC 197.

The Michael Bisping vs. Dan Henderson bout was awarded FOTN. While Jimi Manuwa and Iuri Alcantara both earned POTN.

UFC 204: Bisping vs. Henderson Rematch

No. 13 Dan Henderson knocked out middleweight champion Michael Bisping at the historic UFC 100 in 2009. The Henderson vs. Bisping 2 is happening after seven years that will be held on October 8, 2016 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

Dan Henderson confirmed that he will be retiring after this fight in an interview three months ago.  “I probably should give more thought to it being my last fight than I do, because it is going to be the last time. I’m not emotional, I’m not anything about it, it’s just another fight. I was ready at the last fight to be done, but obviously I couldn’t turn down a title shot. My body could easily go another four or five years if I really wanted to.”

Vitor Belfort vs. Gegard Mousasi will headline the co-main event. Belfort lost to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza at UFC 198. The main event fighters Bisping and Henderson were both knocked out by Belfort as well as the former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold in 2013. Mousasi came from a win against Thiago Santos and Thales Leites and will be looking to extend his win-streak this year.

Ovince Saint Preux and Jimi Manuwa to cross paths in the light heavyweight division. Meanwhile, the bantamweight bout between Entwistle and Rob Font was scrapped due to medical condition. Entwistle slipped in and out of consciousness during the weight cutting process.

Belfort VS Henderson III – Weigh Ins

Both fighters have made weight and are ready to go! I can’t help but notice the deflated look of both fighters compared to how they looked in their second fight.

Check out the TRT filled versions of these two fighters back in 2013!  (Image below)

If both fighters are on PEDs, does that make it ok?  This might be the rare occasion where I would be ok with it!
