UFC Fight for the Troops 2 Leftovers

The Ultimate Fighting Championships gave our troops the tribute they deserved with "Fight for the Troops 2." Ft. Hood was blessed with a stacked eleven fight card that shook the Robert Gray Army Airfield Hangar. Follow the bullet list for a "Fight for the Troops" quickie:
  • DeMarques Johnson's first round submission may have sent Mike Guymon to the unemployment line. The former Tapout member falls to 1-3 in UFC action. As for Johnson, a body triangle submission is an ill way to win any match.
  • Yves Edwards gave Cody McKenzie a taste of his own medicine, stopping McKenzie's eleven bout win-by-guillotine choke streak with a second round rear-naked choke. McKenzie gave Edwards a good fight before the sub. I'm sure getting put to sleep was a real wake-up call for McKenzie.
  • Matt Wiman owned Cole Miller. No need to type anymore here.
  • Pat Barry put his tree trunks for legs to work in a hard fought battle with Joey "The Mexicutioner" Beltran. Barry used his trademark power kicks to head off a unanimous decision victory, and send "The Ex-Mexicutioner" home with a severely swollen leg.
  • Mark Hominick TKO'd Roop in the first. Too nobody told Roop. A negligent referee walked away from Roop before the doctor entered the cage. Unattended, Roop wobbled toward Hominick as if the fight were still going. I think a CAT scan is in order.
  • Matt Mitrione made easy work of Tim Hague. The first round TKO might have Hague joining the unemployment line with Mike Guymon on Monday morning.
  • Three is a lucky number, and Melvin Guillard's victory over Evan Dunham made for three TKO victories in a row off the main card. Guillard went beast mode on Dunham, punching his way out of takedowns, following up with skull-crushing knees to end the night with a bang!
