MooPig Sports Trough :: "UFC Fight of the Night"

Eight Up UFC Fighters 
Discombobulated by Pat Darnell  |  Dec 21, 2013  |  Bryan TX

[Picture LINK] Women participate in UFC mixed martial arts octagon fighting on Sat Dec 6th.

The UFC had a reputation, especially in the early days, as an extremely violent event, as evidenced by a disclaimer in the beginning of the UFC 5 broadcast which warned audiences of the violent nature of the sport.

If there is a body part that receives the most damage in mixed martial arts, I would have to say the ears. If you ever question whether a person's claim is that they are a fighter, look at their ears, and if they look like cauliflower, then his claim is probably true.

EXCERPT | " ... Hunt, who battled Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva in the night's heavyweight draw-card, required surgery after suffering a broken hand and face during the bout.

[Picture LINK] Although these two fighters went five rounds only to end in a majority draw, they both won their bonuses from UFC and FON -- Fight of the Night -- honors. That's Silva on the right.

" ... It was no surprise both Hunt and Silva required medical attention. The pair recorded a combined 184 strikes during their bout - the highest amount in UFC heavyweight history. (December 11, 2013. Marissa Calligeros. LINK) ..."
" ... The caged ring, known as the Octagon, is banned in Western Australia and Victoria.
However the sport's popularity appears to be growing, with the takings at the gate on Saturday, December 6th, 2013, topping $1.8 million. ... "
Eight UFC fighters in hospital after Brisbane fight night: "More than one-third of participants in the Ultimate Fighting Championship Fight Night held at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre ended the night in hospital. Main card Australian fighters Mark Hunt, 39, and Dylan Andrews, 34, topped the long injury list coming out of Saturday's event. Eight of the 22 competing fighters were taken to hospital, including two rushed by ambulance to St Andrew's Hospital."

MooPig has a jones for bloodsport UFC style. We like to find clandestine cage fighting on late night, early morning, cable TV. We watch and squirm as the fighters unleash hours of trained, specialized, blood letting techniques in mixed martial arts upon each other.

Edge of suburbia, white flight we city dwellers desire and cherish blood sport. The sport of blood has developed NERO-ian dirty boxing face of chain link with sponsors like Jack's Links. Barefoot and almost bare knuckled, almost Colosseum gigantic, due to TV audience, and wearing garb from their Dojo's, MMA participants are amazing athletes. (LINK)

We found this report from the Brisbane Times of a recent bout where a third of the contestants were hospitalized after their bouts. YIKES!
"... In one of the greatest fights in Ultimate Fighting Championship history, Mark Hunt and Antonio ''Bigfoot'' Silva battled to a majority draw on Saturday. ... The UFC's Australian director of operations, Tom Wright described the fight, seen by 11,383 fans at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, as the best heavyweight contest he'd ever seen.(December 7, 2013. Dan Nancarrow. LINK) ..."
" ... ''Bigfoot'' was bleeding heavily in the final round, and two judges scored it 10-8 to Hunt. The result was one judge scoring the fight 48-47 to Hunt while the other two judges scored the bout 47-47, leading to one of the rarest decisions in mixed martial arts: a majority draw. (December 8, 2013. Liam Ducey. LINK) ..."

MooPig has been watching the UFC from its beginning. The first UFC event was held in 1993 in Denver, Colorado. The purpose of the event was to identify the most effective martial art in a real fight between competitors of different fighting disciplines, including Boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Sambo, Wrestling, Muay Thai, Karate, Judo, and other styles.

UFC has its roots in clandestine bare knuckle fighting, correlated with mixed martial arts training. Its octagon shaped cage gives fighters greater room to use their skills, more area to set up kicks and perform take downs. In take downs, grappling occurs as fighters use wrestling, and jiu jitsu joint locks, and throw downs. Most fights are three five minute rounds. Most fighters throw up to a hundred strikes in a fight, sometimes more. Take downs also score points if the fight goes to a decision by the three judges.

There are some rules like not hitting or kicking the back of the head, and not hitting or kicking below the belt, no head butting. Sometimes a fighter gets a finger to his eye, and the fight is paused for him to recoup. Gloves are worn to cut down on cutting that would come from bare knuckles. Elbows, shins, feet, knees, dirty boxing, are all otherwise fair to use in this modern day bloodsport.

" ... Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, who fought for the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title in
May, tested positive for an excessive level of testosterone after his Dec. 6 draw in Australia against Mark Hunt.

In addition to surrendering his $50,000 fight-of-the-night bonus following the bloody battle, Silva is suspended for nine months, the UFC said in a statement. (Lance Pugmire. December 18, 2013. LINK) ..."
