This Week in Dumb MMA Stuff

Welcome to Leg Kick TKO, a MMA blog that’s more delusional than Phil Baroni.

Fights - A lot of fights from around the globe this week.  India, Canada, South Korea!

SFL 10 -What's this?  Super Fight League didn't have a fight go to decision?  Did someone not get the message that at least one fight has to go to the judges?

Kumar vs Farhan

Jagdish Kumar sloppily punches and kicks his way to a first round TKO (by retirement) over Shaikh Mohammed Farhan.

Check out way more fights after the jump!

Khan vs Sekhar

Javed Ali Khan wins by TKO at the end of round two as Srikant Sekhar gives up on the stool.

Janjic vs Ruhil

Nikola Janjic taps out Vikas Singh Ruhil with a rear naked choke in round one.

Solomon vs Rajput

Jason Solomon knocked out Suresh Rajput with a knee in round one.  It's a fun fight, with Solomon goofing around and after he wins, he humps the hell out of the O-Zone cage.  I like this guy.

Petkar vs Jha

Abhijeet Petkar wins because Sanjay Jha doesn't want to continue after the first round.  I like SFL, but three "retirement"/"forfeiture" victories is pretty bad.

Tweet vs Kadian

Charmaine Tweet taps out Puja Kadian in under a minute with a guillotine choke.

Ambriz vs Karim

Jimmy Ambriz taps out Mohamed Abdel Karim with an arm triangle in round one.  Ambriz might get to a .500 record if he sticks around in SFL!

Score Fighting Series 7 -Oh, Canada!  Score Fighting Series 7 was pretty cool, with some good fights and fun, new stuff!

McDonell vs Green

Rory McDonell tapped out Desmond Green with a cool gogoplata/armbar combination in the first round.  Neato torpedo, Rory!

Dickson vs Dewsbery

Ryan Dickson forced Brandt Dewbery to submit to a rear naked choke in round two.  Maybe not as crazy and cool as McDonell's sub, but it got the job done, and that's all that matters.

Saggo vs Hadin

Jason Saggo also submitted Iraj Hadin with a rear naked choke, also in the second round.  Spooky!

Ronson vs Healy

Jesse Ronson beat the crap out of Ryan Healy en route to a unanimous decision, including this moment where he lands three head kicks in a row in about five seconds.  WOW!

Mein vs Petz

Jordan Mein is pretty dang good, as he beat up Forrest Petz and got a TKO victory.  However, the bigger issue is that referee Yves Lavinge was pretty dang bad, letting a lot of blows to the back of Petz's head go without a warning or a stop in the action or anything.  SHEESH BO-BEESH, YVES!

Mestre do Combate - Mestre do Combate is Rickson "Armbar" Gracie's new MMA organization that is built around finishing fights.  Rounds are allowed to extend past the time limit if a submission or knockout is close and a decision is rendered by Rickson, the referee, and fan vote.

Petter vs Maffort

News - Not a lot to discuss, but there was one thing of note.

Book Club!

 I have, on occasion, made a entry about a live discussion happening over at With Leather (The world's best comedy sports blog) because With Leather is way cool.  When word got out that Tank Abbott wrote a novel, I knew I had to buy it, and since With Leather is way cool, they offered to host my review of the book.  So go read my thoughts on the first parts of "Befor There Were Rules:  Bar Brawler" over at With Leather!  Yay!
