UFC On Fox 16 Recap
UFC on Fox 16 has come and gone and the fight world saw another masterpiece by bantamweight champ T.J Dillashaw. The consensus after Dillashaw’s dominating knockout in the 4th round of Renan Barao was that it’s time for Barao to move up a weight class. Bantamweight is obviously too hard of a weight cut for him at this point in his career. Dillashaw is the man and ready for Dominick Cruz, the next anticipated bantamweight superfight on the horizon.
Miesha Tate dominated Jessica “Evil” Eye to win by unanimous decision. After absorbing some early damage from Eye, Miesha caught her with a heavy right hand and then it became the Miesha Tate show for 3 rounds. Miesha wants Ronda Rousey for a third time and she thinks that she has the right hand to do it.
Heavy kicking Edson Barboza squeaked out a decision against Paul Felder that was 29-28 on all three scorecards. They both came out winners in this one, fighting a scrappy technical fight that drew them praise.
Joe Lauzon showed up and knocked out Takanori Gomi with ease in the first round. Herb Dean took a while to stop the fight, and even Lauzon stepped away thinking that Gomi was unconscious after punching him repeatedly on the back and sides of his head from his back. As Lauzon came back for more, Dean finally stepped in and ended this one-sided strike fest. Lauzon put quite the exclamation point on another great fight.
