MMA Confidential Anderson Silva MMA vs BOXING Roy Jones Machida Weidman

by Bruce KiVo

So many want a piece of Anderson Silva, but who does “The Spider” Silva want?

Anderson vows to KO undefeated Division 1  All American Wrestler and new 185-pound UFC Champ  Chris Weidman in their rematch at UFC 168.   Expect the unexpected from both fighters.The rematch is anybody’s fight.  Weidman’s ko of Silva was no fluke.  This boy can do it all.We’ll see who carries out their gameplan better.

If Anderson loses the rematch, Lyoto Machida can vy for a shot at the middleweight crown as teamates Lyoto and Anderson have vowed never to compete against one another.

Considered by many to be the best MMA fighter of all time, Anderson Silva has a hard time with wrestlers as demoed in his near loss to Chael Sonnen in their first fight.

If he beats Weidman, Anderson wants Roy Jones and so does the UFC.  It would be epic… MMA vs BOXING.      One can wonder why Silva would want to compete in boxing.  Of course the payday would be off the hook,but   Roy Jones believes testing oneself against one of the best boxers of all time is the real incentive for The Spider.  With a big size and reach advantage and similiar style to Roy, it seems unlikely that  the 38yr old Silva could avoid being decimated by Roy Jones.  Chael was able to knock him down and Chris Weidman ko’d him. Roy Jones Jr.  At 44 and past his prime has accepted the challenge as long as it comes pretty soon.

The reality of this match really happening seems a bit unlikely as the UFC’s 185lb division is stacked and the clock is ticking for Roy Jones Jr.  It’s up to Dana White and the UFC.

I say “let the games begin”.  Win or lose vs Weidman, we want to see this fight!

Until next time!

 

 

 

 

 

Kings Of New York Amateur MMA Rocks The Hammerstein Ballroom MMA Confidential

by Bruce KiVo

It was standing room only as history was made Sat, March 23rd @ NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

Featuring 13 amateur bouts including an action packed female fight and superhot ring girls,  fans

came out in droves to support  New York’s first ” sanctioned”  Mixed Martial Arts event in 11 years.

KO’s, TKO’s, Submissions….

Here’s how it went down:

Awesome opening match was 140 lb Diego Lopez submitting Jimes Casserly via real tight triangle choke round 1.

145 lb Felix Perez gets TKO, ground and pound win over Kimson round 2.

155lb devastating striker Jose Mariscal TKO’s Ethan Gomez end of round 1

135lb Abner Hernandez totally beats down Vernon Lodman round 1. Lodman takes tremendous beating. Hernandez looks gassed end of round 1.  Round 2, Hernandez repeats the beatdown from the mount.  Lodmannever tried for a sweep, has no clue what to do on the ground and and just gets pounded.  Ref stops fight and warns Abner to stop holding the cage.  Abner is just too gassed to go on and verbally submits.  Lodman was dominated totally but gets the w round 2.

155lb Next up was Team Renzo fighter  Ronmy Davila of The Bronx.  In spite of a kidney problem gets split dec win over a very game Fabian Llerena.

135lb Carlos Hernandez submits Jeff Balladares  round 3 via vicious rear naked choke. Carlos trains under the legendary Bob Shermer out of Chicago.  Just love a good submission win.

145lb  Jose Torres gets a UD dec win over Jarelle Marcalle.

110lb Women’s MMA…Krav Maga Acadamy’s  Victoria Markarova gets UD victory over Phil Dunlap’s Jodi Lynn Reicher Both girls came to bang.  At one point Jodi had a nice guillotine clamped on the Krav Maga fighter, but Victoria maintained her composure and was able to slip out. Victoria continued to dominate Jodi with takeddowns and strikes from the ground and standing.  Jodi showed a lot of heart and and fought hard till the end, but Victoria’s  arsenal was too much and earned her the Unan dec victory. As in all the previous bouts, these athletes bonded and showed true sportsmanship, or should I say sports”woman”ship after the match.

175lb Angelo Rivera wins via tko ref stoppage round 2 over Chris Miller.  Miller showed good wrestling and came out very strong round 1, but gassed.  Rivera stayed composed and the rest is history.

170lb Main Event Time  Mathew Perez came out with very aggressive attack, but the very composed Simmon Sara locked on a real nice armbar round 1.  Perez slammed him and Sara improved  the armbar even more and got the tap. Loved this fight.

Quite a few celebs were in the house including legendary MMA fighter, Shonie Carter,  MMA ‘s Seth Petruzelli who KO’d Kimbo Slice, ‘ONE Tough Cop” Bo Dietl,  Matan Gavish, Sambo Steve and Champion Boxer Mike Corleone to name a few.

Thank you Frank Babcock,  Anthony Medina,  Bob Shermer,  Renzo Gracie,  Dan “The Beast” Severn, Pat Militich, Matt Hughes and everyone else @ Fighters Source who made the event possible.

Until next time!
