Now that is one BADASS kick. Right after Anderson Silva pulls a similarly awesome kick to the face of Vitor Belfort at UFC 126, Lyoto Machida replicates nearly the same devastating front kick and along with it takes away the spotlight, knockout of the night, Randy's career and front tooth.
Vitor Belfort would have you believe that Anderson was lucky to have landed that one in a million kick, but not soon after Lyoto was able to pull off the same kind of finish. How is that possible you say? STEVEN SEAGAL, that's how.
Now time for the injuries...
The poster below shows what UFC 130 would have looked like had both Frankie Edgar AND Gray Maynard not received injuries at the same time!
The new revised UFC 130 poster now shows this:
The bad news? Rampage vs Hamill is now the main event. The good news? Thiago Alves vs Rick Story has been bumped up to the main card.
Our next injury is none other than the new UFC lightheavyweight champ himself, Jon Jones.
After claiming the belt and then going through MTV Real World-style drama with Rashad Evans, the two were supposed to fight but Jones had to pull out due to a serious hand injury.
Brock's diverticulitis has resurfaced and it looks like the former champ is going to out of action for awhile, which means the return of Shane Carwin to fill in for him at UFC 131, which also means the return of Brock's uber beard.
UFC 131: Dos Santos vs. Carwin!!!
When it was against Brock, I had my bet on JDS for sure. Now that it's Carwin, who knows how the fight is going to end up; both of these guys sure know how to finish! I would give the raw power and take down technique to Carwin, but the cardio and boxing technique to JDS. My money still goes to JDS (via KO), but this has become more interesting to me than the original JDS vs Brock.
