WEC 43: Cerrone vs. Henderson; TONIGHT 10/10
« on: October 09, 2009, 12:12:38 AM »
MAIN CARD
Donald Cerrone vs. Benson Henderson (for WEC interim lightweight title)
Dave Jansen vs. Richard Crunkilton Jr.
Will Campuzano vs. Damacio Page
Rafael Assuncao vs. Yves Jabouin

PRELIMINARY CARD
Muhsin Corbbrey vs. Anthony Njokuani
Scott Jorgensen vs. Noah Thomas
Wagnney Fabiano vs. Mackens Semerzier
Manny Tapia vs. Eddie Wineland
Charlie Valencia vs. Coty Wheeler
Deividas Taurosevicius vs. Javier Vazquez
------------------------------------------

Fabiano on the undercard? Still got Assuncao on the main, who needs to improve on his performance last time out. Damacio Page, who is always entertaining and could be a contender.

Main event: I favor Cerrone. Henderson flat out said this week that it's a big jump for him going from undercard all the time to main event and he's nervous. I think Cerrone will win convincingly and then call out Varner in a pretty vicious manner. That's some HATE right there.

Fabiano on the undercard?

Unfortunately, Fabiano's in the unenviable position of playing second fiddle in the division to Jose Aldo.The two obviously aren't going to fight each other, so with Aldo being the more exciting and dynamic contender, he's the one tat's being groomed for a title shot. Unless Aldo either drops a division or gets knocked from contention, Fabiano's stuck in limbo so as to avoid potentially stifling the division.

I trained with Yves Jabouin. I rolled with him and was doing pretty well.

Seeing as how I'm not a BJJ Black Belt, I don't really like his chances in this fight. I hope he can pull off the KO though, his striking is pretty fucking sick.


I can't believe a guy can be that big, and jump around like he does what a great athlete!

And after I just got into WEC with their last show, I can't watch this one due to the DirecTV/Versus debacle.

Good card so far, but 30-27 Jabouin? Cmon man.

YPOV's boy gave a good account of himself.

And Semerzier over Fabiano is your runner-up for Upset of the Year.

Damacio Page is a beast, with Bowles out until next year he needs to fight Cruz or Torres next.

Good fight between Assuncao & Jabouin, i had it for Assuncao but it was close enough that you just knew at least one judge would score it something crazy.

And Semerzier just solved the Aldo/Fabiano problem at FW, never heard of him before but subbing Fabiano puts him on the map big time.

Jansen/Crunkilton is like a better version of Couture/Van Arsdale. Fuck this crowd for not appreciating grown wrestling like this.

I love that Jansen didn't realize that Crunkilton let Franca wreck every one of his limbs without tapping.

Another undercard bout despite still having a 5 round title fight to go through? Viva WEC.

Awesome opening round, and Mir's right, I can't think of anyone who's survived the grovit before.

I'm glad to hear Yves didn't get tapped and took Raph to a split and hoe-lee shit on WagFab getting tapped.

Cerrone isn't pulling the trigger on anything standing.  And, seriously, let's see some x-guard on the ground, cowboy.

I kinda want Ben Henderson vs. Clay Guida.

This fight is really magnifying how retarded it is that Henderson, Cerrone & Varner aren't in the UFC.

Great fight, and utterly ridiculous submission escapes from Henderson. Chokes, Triangles, Armbars, judging from this fight it's impossible to make Ben tap.

I have it 3 rounds to 2 for Cerrone, but it could really go either way.

Ugh. I thought the rounds were easy enough to score. 48-46 Cerrone was the only right decision, IMO.

Fuck.Golf.

I had to settle for watching Shine Fights II on TFN last night instead of what was apparently a FOTYC in Hendo/Cerrone. Props to Ben for the win, I've been a fan of his since I caught a few of his bouts with MFC and he deserves the accolades. Sounds like they'll just do Varner vs Henderson and the winner will face Cerrone.

Another very entertaining card with an excellent main event.
