Beating the Odds: UFC Fight Night ‘Rodriguez vs. Penn’

Persistence has never been an issue for Ben Saunders . Twice released by the Ultimate Fighting Championship , “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 7 alum made a triumphant return to the promotion at UFC Fight Night “Rodriguez vs. Penn” and did so against the odds. Saunders -- a modest +120 underdog, according to BetDSI.com -- took a three-round unanimous decision from Court McGee (-140), earning 29-28 nods from all three judges on Sunday at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix. Kicks were the story for Saunders. He unleashed a seemingly endless string of them, zeroing in on McGee’s legs, arms, body and head. Saunders was not surprised by the inability to finish “The Ultimate Fighter 11” winner. “I knew he was going to be tough,” he said. “He’s got a hardcore chin, [and he has] never been submitted. He’s got endurance for days. Heart and endurance are a big part of his strength. More power to him. Both of us had nothing but respect.” Only one other favorite was bitten by the upset bug. Former King of the Cage champion Frankie Saenz (-156) continued to crash back to earth after a 3-0 start to his UFC career, as he wound up on the wrong side of a split decision against MMA Lab rep Augusto Mendes .

Opinion: The Final Pass of the Torch

Illustration: K. David Bena/Sherdog.com 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. * * * There are few people in the fight game with better highlight reels than B.J. Penn . He knocked Din Thomas silly with a knee and blitzed Caol Uno in 11 seconds in 2001, both of which continued to make cameos in pre-fight promotional videos for the next decade. His list of rear-naked chokes alone is enough to get grappling nerds giddy. Takenori Gomi, Matt Hughes , Jens Pulver , Joe Stevenson and Kenny Florian all ended up seconds away from sleep, usually after one of their arms was pinned by one of Penn’s legs. Even some of his losses have provided sensational moments: How he pieced up George St. Pierre on the feet for a round in their first fight, when he inexplicably slithered to take Hughes’ back and moved into a triangle in their rematch or how he pushed back a 218-pound Lyoto Machida with clean shots to the face in K-1.

UFC Fight Night 103 medical suspensions: Yair Rodriguez, B.J. Penn among potentially long sits

Main event winner Yair Rodriguez (9-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) was given an indefinite suspension after his second-round TKO win over UFC Hall of Famer B.J. Penn (16-11-2 MMA, 12-10-2 UFC), who was handed a 180-day sit. Reasons for the medical suspensions were not disclosed by the commission, though in the case of Rodriguez, an indefinite suspension typically can be lifted after the fighter receives the clearance of a physician. In the case of a six-month suspension like Penn’s, the same usually is true.

But his story is not over yet, we were competing in a 4 man tournament last Saturday, this meant 2 fights in 1 night. I took this fight with a previous injury and after the first fight my injury was bothering me. So I pulled out of the 2nd fight and he took my spot. It was awesome though because he got the win. He succeeded & redeemed himself and won the 2nd fight in the 1st round via TKO and then he proposed to his gf right after…she of course said yes! #LifeIsCrazy 😂 Really crazy but also really awesome. #MMA #LoveStory #Redemption #China #Ningbo #Fighters #FightLife #NagaConglomerate #Rubatek #WBK #WBK21 @thenagaconglomerate”

Pena Calls For Fans To Be Grateful For Her Next Fight!

“I think this fight is a long time coming and this is a fight that the fans have been dying for. It’s a fight that the fans have been chirping in my ear about nonstop and people have been telling me that I’m scared to take the fight, but it has nothing to do with that and more so the fact that I felt if I wouldn’t have fought, I probably would have been fighting for title anyways right now, if I would have just sat and waited. But that’s not the way the cookie crumbles and unfortunately the fans wanted to see me fight one more time before I fight for the belt, so I’m actually doing this fight for the fans and doing a fight which they have asked for and have requested for me for a long time now, so I hope that I make them happy and then they can be a little bit grateful for the fact I am putting it all on the line for them.”
