Valentijn Chokes Ray Sefo Out of Reserve Contention at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Silva

ValentijnSugar Ray Sefo, a K-1 star unlike most entered into his third professional MMA bout tonight, against the big brother of Alistair Overeem, Valentijn Overeem. Valentijn has been removed from the world of elite fighters for a while, while Sefo has yet to move up to elite competition in MMA. Both men met in a reserve bout, to see in case of an injury or draw situation who could possibly fill in during the Strikeforce Heavyweight GP.

Ray Sefo came in looking to counterstrike against the bigger and younger Valentijn, but Overeem was able to get Sefo onto the ground within one minute and twenty seconds, and about ten seconds later ha a neck crank on Ray Sefo against the cage and Sefo had no choice but to tap out. Sometimes it is heart-breaking to be a fan of Sugar Ray, as a lot of his focus of late has been on training other fighters in the fairer sport that is kickboxing, and there were rumors that he did not train as much as he should have for this bout.

Next time, Sugar Ray, next time.


Anderson Stands Alone in MMA Striking at UFC 126

Anderson SilvaAnderson Silva squared off with most recent challenger, Vitor "The Phenom" Belfort. After his last defense against Chael Sonnen there were many questions as to where Anderson Silva really stands. His stand up has always been his strong point, but Chael Sonnen was able to score on him and even knock him down in their fight. To many, this was a glaring hole in his game, and against a boxer like Vitor Belfort, could mean bad things.

Most of the first round featured both men tentative and afraid to strike until Vitor Belfort landed a one-two combo. Silva gets frustrated and throws a high kick that Vitor catches and takes him down with. Silva is easily able to hop up and get his back, then Vitor spins around and eats a clinched knee from Silva. Silva then channeled our favorite retired K-1 MAX fighter not named Masato and lands a Kohi front kick to KO Vitor, followed by a few follow-up shots for good measure. Anderson wins by first round KO.

Anderson Silva quietly sits upon his MMA striking throne, but we still have questions about where he stands against professional boxers, kickboxers and muay thai practioners.
