Fight For The Troops 2 seemed in complete disarray, the card didn’t disappoint when the lights went down and action got underway, with knockout action throughout the night and a couple of memorable upsets that made the event one to remember. With the Super Bowl betting just a week away, here is a quick look at what went down:
UFC Results Melvin Guillard via TKO over Evan Dunham
It seemed as though Evan Dunham would not be stopped at UFC: Fight For The Troops 2, especially after his original opponent Kenny Florian was forced off the card due to injury. UFC President Dana White found a replacement for Florian in Melvin Guillard, who he elevated from the preliminary card to the main event, and it seemed at the time as though it was a major mismatch. Dunham was coming off his first career loss, a defeat at the hands of Sean Sherk that went the distance and earned Fight of the Night honors, and he would be trying to bounce back against an opponent that had struggled against the top fighters in the division. That wasn’t the case however as Guillard put him under right away, burying him with a fury of strikes to score a TKO UFC Picks victory just 2:58 in to the first round, and earning Knockout of the Night honors.
UFC Results Matt Mitrione via TKO over Tim Hague
After clinching three straight wins to open his career, the pressure was on Matt “Meathead” Mitrione to continue his run against one of the established fighters in the Heavyweight division. Mitrione had already scored two of his first three victories via knockout, but provided an even more impressive performance with a first round TKO win over Tim Hague. The match lasted just a second longer than the main sports betting bonus event would, the second of three straight first round knockouts.
UFC Results Mark Hominick via TKO over George Roop
That streak got underway in the third fight on the main card, a battle between Mark Hominick and George Roop that lasted just a minute and 28 seconds. White had told Hominick that if he scored the decision at UFC: Fight For The Troops 2 he would be elevated to No. 1 contender status for the UFC Featherweight championship. Hominick wasted little time dropping Roop, and will now face Jose Aldo for the title.
UFC Results Pat Barry via Unanimous Decision over Joey Beltran
Barry bounced back from a tough loss to Mirko Cro Cop by earning the decision over Beltran in a fight scored 30-27, 29-28, 29-28 in the first of two heavyweight bouts on the main card. Beltran has now dropped consecutive pay per head bouts to Mitrione and Barry.
Cole Miller via Unanimous Decision over Matt Wiman
The night got underway with the first of back-to-back victories that were clinched via unanimous decision, as Miller tagged Wiman in a fight scored 29-28, 30-27, 30-27. This fight was originally supposed to take place at UFC 125, but was moved in a sports betting effort by White to fill the card.
