  1. belfort tko half way through the first round
  2. Two more bouts have found their new homes in the wake of Thursday's cancellation of UFC 151, but they'll have to wait an extra 10 weeks. A bantamweights booking between Takeya Mizugaki (15-7-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) and Jeff Hougland (10-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and a flyweight contest between Yasuhiro Uru****ani (19-5-6 MMA, 0-1 UFC) and John Lineker (19-6 MMA, 0-1 UFC) have been moved to UFC on FUEL TV 6. UFC on FUEL TV 6 takes place Nov. 10 at Cotai Arena at the Venetian Macau Resort Hotel. Macau is a special administrative region of China, marking the UFC's first trip to the country. The card is expected to be headlined by a middleweight clash between former champions Rich Franklin and Cung Le. Mizugaki looks to get back in the win column following a split-decision loss to Chris Cariaso at UFC 144 this past February in his native Japan. Now he again will fight in Asia, but as part of the promotion's China debut. The onetime WEC title challenger has wins over Jeff Curran, Rani Yahya and Cole Escovedo on his resume. Hougland was outpointed by Yves Jabouin at UFC on FUEL TV 3 in May. In July 2011, he won his UFC debut with a decision win over Donny Walker at UFC 132. Uru****ani, another Japanese fighter on the UFC's roster, returns after a second-round TKO loss to Joseph Benavidez in the UFC's flyweight tournament this past March. The loss snapped a five-fight win streak for the former Shooto champion. Lineker fought in a "Fight of the Night" slugfest with Louis Gaudinot at UFC on FOX 3 this past May, losing by guillotine choke in the second round and having his 13-fight win streak snapped. He became the first UFC fighter to get a post-fight bonus award despite missing weight.
  3. Belfort for the fact that he is as fast as machida hand speed wise, while bringing hendo like one punch power, also with the aggression of a sonnen.Just my 2 cents
  4. Another change from the UFC 151 fallout is in the books, and UFC on FX 5 has yet another fight. A lightweight fight between Dennis Hallman (51-14-2 MMA, 4-5 UFC) and Thiago Tavares (17-4-1 MMA, 7-4-1 UFC) will shift to October in Minneapolis following the Thursday cancellation of next week's UFC 151 show in Las Vegas. UFC officials on Friday announced the change, just a day after moving three other fights from Las Vegas to Minnesota. UFC on FX 5 takes place Oct. 5 at Target Center in Minneapolis and airs live on FX and FUEL TV. The card is headlined by a heavyweight bout between Travis Browne and Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva. It is the UFC's first trip to Minneapolis since UFC 87 in 2008. UFC 151 on Thursday was canceled when light heavyweight title challenger Dan Henderson was forced out with a knee injury and, according to UFC President Dana White, champion Jon Jones turned down a fight against Chael Sonnen, who had offered to step in for Henderson for the main event. Hallman is coming off a submission over John Makdessi at UFC 140 in Toronto to get back in the win column after a first-round TKO loss to Brian Ebersole at UFC 133. He is 8-2 in his past 10 fights. Hallman was scheduled to fight "TUF 13" winner Tony Ferguson at UFC on FOX 3 in May, but was forced to withdraw with an injury. His replacement was Tavares, who then was forced out, as well. Tavares has won back-to-back fights against Spencer Fisher at UFC 134 and Sam Stout at UFC 142. Both those fights took place in his native Brazil. Before his current two-fight win streak, Tavares was knocked out by Shane Roller at UFC on Versus 3. On Thursday, the UFC announced that the UFC 151 co-main event welterweight rematch between Jake Ellenberger and Jay Hieron had moved to UFC on FX 5 in Minneapolis. And the company moved Danny Castillo-Michael Johnson and Shane Roller-Jacob Volkmann to the card, as well. The changes for UFC on FX 5 likely are not over. The card now contains 14 fights that have been announced or rumored by the promotion in some way. The UFC regularly has cards with 11 bouts, and occassionally 12. The latest UFC on FX 5 card now includes: Travis Browne vs. Antonio Silva Jake Ellenberger vs. Jay Hieron John Dodson vs. Jussier Formiga Rob Broughton vs. Matt Mitrione Josh Neer vs. Justin Edwards Phil Davis vs. Wagner Prado* Dennis Hallman vs. Thiago Tavares Danny Castillo vs. Michael Johnson Shane Roller vs. Jacob Volkmann Mike Pierce vs. Aaron Simpson Yves Edwards vs. Jeremy Stephens Marcus LeVesseur vs. Carlo Prater Phil Harris vs. Darren Uyenoyama Diego Nunes vs. Bart Palaszewski
