Craziest. Comeback. Ever. (gif via Smoogy on the UG)
Awards for the night were at 50k each and went to Cheick Kongo for KO of the Night and Joe Lauzon for Sub of the Night (he nearly ripped Curt Warburton’s arm and shoulder off in the prelims). FOTN went to another prelim, Charles Oliveira vs Nik Lentz. It was a sick fight and deserved the award even though the ref missed a clear illegal knee to a grounded Nik Lentz and the fight will probably end up being a No Contest. Unfortunate that Versus was too busy showing Colon Flow ads to fit it in!
Casey from All Elbows got this post-fight shot of Lentz’s fucked up face. He was getting the ketchup squeezed out of him at the end there by Oliveira.
Cagewriter’s got pictures up from the event, including a couple great ones from that effing retarded Kongo comeback / knockout.
Pat Barry talks about how close the fight came to stopping and if he felt Dan Mirglioatotaoa almost pull him off Kongo during one of his knockdowns.
Joe Lauzon savages Curt Warburton in the prelims for a zesty 50k bonus. This gif and 200 more at Iron Forges Iron.
Cheick Kongo proves that Kimbo style beards help protect your chin from knockout blows. Thoughts? Do you dig his noble facial stylings or does it look more like the pube-stache from Jackass?
Matt Brown talks about seeing a sports psychologist and how he’s “gotta be smart, gotta have a strong enough mind.” I think the stress of staring into the abyss of unemployment got to him a little.
