Walt Harris: ‘I Wanna Be a Company Man; I'll Fight Anywhere, Any Time’

Heavyweight contender Walt Harris looked terrific on Sunday when he tore up Chase Sherman from start to finish before knocking him out in spectacular fashion. After tagging his foe with a plethora of strikes from the outside and picking Sherman apart rather easily, “The Big Ticket” unleashed a dazzling combo to put his opponent away. Harris delivered a knee to Sherman’s face in the clinch and immediately followed that up with a crisp right-left hook to the jaw, ending the fight. Al Guinee had to pull Harris off the fallen Sherman after a follow-up hammerfist landed and officially ended the mugging at the 2:41 mark of the second.

Oliynk saw a disadvantage in size and he struggled to find a distance to strike from. However, he overcame that by constantly applying the pressure and ultimately trapping Pesta against the fence for a takedown.

Opinion: An Aging Prodigy

Illustration: K. David Bena Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * When the bout between B.J. Penn and Yair Rodriguez was announced, my immediate feeling was that it was stupid. Part of that opinion is rooted in the fact that Penn was one of the first fighters that brought me into the sport, and he has captured my imagination of what is possible as a mixed martial artist like no one has before or since. To say he’s a legend in the sport is trite; to my mind, the highs of his career represent the absolute ceiling of competitive martial arts. One of the primary appeals of martial arts is the idea that technique trumps physical advantages. Bruce Lee, for instance, was the introduction of traditional martial arts for many of us. Perhaps his most famous fight scene is against the 7-foot-2 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in “The Game of Death.” In that scene, the 5-foot-8 Lee uses a variety of techniques from different disciplines to eventually overcome an opponent who absolutely dwarfed him.

39
The Bottom Line: UFC’s Mexico Hopes Hang on Yair Rodriguez

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * Yair Rodriguez on Sunday in Phoenix will compete in the most important bout in Ultimate Fighting Championship history for a Mexican-born fighter. B.J. Penn , the celebrated former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion, returns to action for only the second time in over four years. Part of the reason Penn is so popular is that throughout his career he has fought pretty much exclusively against consequential fighters. The UFC’s decision to match Penn against Rodriguez is a signal that it sees big-time potential in the 24-year-old Mexican competitor. The stakes have been ratcheted up by the time and place: a main event slot on a Fox Sports 1 show after the NFL on Fox, a position that has led to big ratings in the past. This is a huge opportunity for Rodriguez, a chance to create the UFC’s first genuine Mexican-born star.

Explaining Alexey Oleynik's Improbable Ezekiel Choke

By “low on the hips,” I mean that Pesta’s own hips and knees were near Oleynik’s own hips and legs. The alternative would have been to enter into a high mount, with his hips and knees up in Oleynik’s arm-pits - that could have helped him A. break Oleynik’s grip on his head and isolate that offending arm, possibly setting it up for an attack of Pesta’s own, and B. flare out Oleynik’s arms with his legs, taking away their power and once again exposing them to danger.

Brunson: ‘It’s lights-out if Silva starts to showboat’

“He’s not going to be doing what he did against Weidman. And he won’t be doing what he look like he did against Cormier. He had nothing to lose against Cormier, so he went into that fight completely out of shape,. I don’t expect him out there dropping his hands, pulling his head back because if one of these punches catches you on the chin, it’s lights out. I expect the best Anderson Silva and I don’t think he will play with me, I don’t think he will toy with me like he does other guys because I can explode in and touch his chin. All it takes is one shot and I am sure his camp is like, ‘This guy can crack you.”

It was just a different deal in terms of, not only the techniques, the training, the coaching, but the level of athlete as well. And you do have some guys from back then who got a really good run, and Tito was the best. There was no one who could beat him, but it just also is a true statement to say that guys were not very good back then.”
