Mac Attack, Ultimate Fighter Episode 9

Mac Danzig is one cranky, moody guy but you can’t dispute his skills in the octagon, and who knows maybe that sour attitude adds to his skill set. He sure took it to John Kolosci by stuffing every takedown attempt and just whaling away on him the whole time with hard shots to the face and elbows to the ribs. It was just a matter of time before Kolosci couldn’t absorb anymore and gave up his back to Mac’s rear naked choke near the end of round one.

Matt Serra had to have 2 of his guys go over to Hughes’ team since he had so many fighters in the semis. Needless to say he and the team are not happy at all. None of his fighters are jumping up to go over the Hughes team and I think says a lot about Hughes.

Since Serra refuses to pick 2 guys to go over he will leave it up Dana and a coin toss. That toss results in Richie Hightower and Matt Arroyo being sent over to team Hughes.

I can understand Richie wanting to clear the air so to speak with the coaches but leave it up to jackass Hughes to dismiss and wave off their concerns. Plus he walks out of the room without so much as a hand shake, at least his coaches had enough class to acknowledge them. Personally I would have just rolled with the change and tried to learn as much as I could from Matt and his coaches, Hughes might be an ass but he is a pro.

So we’ll see what happens next week in a doubleheader episode…

Kimbo Slice and KJ Noons Shine at EliteXC Renegades.

YouTube sensation and street fighter turned pro Kimbo Slice needed only 19 seconds to defeat MMA vet Bo Cantrell in last nights EliteXC Renegades event. Kimbo advanced steadily on Cantrell and scored a hard uppercut to the upper chest followed by a sweet elbow to the eyebrow area which the commentators seemed to miss. Cantrell went down at that point and was tapping almost as soon as he hit the ground.

KJ Noons had a great night picking up the EliteXC Lightweight Belt after defeating hard hitting Nick Diaz. Noons was able to land some big shots on Diaz including a devastating knee to the face served up when Diaz tried to shoot opening up a nice cut on his eyelid.

KJ went on to pound Diaz with more hard shots and the ringside doctor was forced to end the fight. Diaz was understandably upset and left the arena with a 2 finger salute for the doc and promoters.

All in all a pretty entertaining card and EliteXC production gets better with each event they put on.
