There is a lot of history between these two! I have read the verbal jabbing back and forth between the two on the UG. Not to mention when they trained together No Love use to get the better of him everyday from what I have read! So to answer you question yes!

PostSubject: Weigh-In Results for UFC 79   Fri 28 Dec 2007, 9:08 pm



The field of 20 fighters for UFC 79: “Nemesis” have all weighed-in this evening for the blockbuster pay-per-view (PPV) event tomorrow night from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

For those who didn’t catch the Internet broadcast we have the weigh-in results below. I missed the first three fighters because of technical difficulties; therefore, I’ll update them as soon as possible.

Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva had a HEATED staredown. Toward the end Silva did a little head fake and the two fighters were separated immediately. Then Liddell flipped of Wanderlei and it caused some havoc on the stage.

Amazing. Totally sets the stage for a ridiculous brawl tomorrow night.
Anyway, here are the official results:

170 lbs.: Matt Hughes (170) vs. Georges St. Pierre (170)
205 lbs.: Chuck Liddell (204) vs. Wanderlei Silva (205)
Hvywt.: Eddie Sanchez (230) vs. Soa Palalei (262)
205 lbs.: Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (205) vs. Lyoto Machida (204)
155 lbs.: Rich Clementi (155) vs. Melvin Guillard (156)
205 lbs.: James Irvin (205) vs. Luis Cane (205)
155 lbs.: Manny Gamburyan (155) vs. Nate Mohr (155)
185 lbs.: Dean Lister (186) vs. Jordan Radev (185)
170 lbs.: Roan Carneiro (170) vs. Tony DeSouza (170)
155 lbs.: Doug Evans (154) vs. Mark Bocek (154)
The televised portion of the pay-per-view (PPV) event begins Saturday, December 29, at 10 p.m. ET. We will provide LIVE blow-by-blow, round-by-round coverage of the main card action at this time.

UFC 79 quick results, however, will begin to flow earlier than that here at MMAmania.com at about 8:00 p.m. ET with the prelim fights.

PRELIM FIGHTS


Fight #1:

-Doug Evans vs. Mark Bocek

Round 1: Round one opens with Bocek looking for a takedown immediately. No luck, but Bocek throws up a sloppy high kick that misses, which Evans responded to by landing a hard one-two combo that stunned Bocek. After defending more takedown attempts Bocek finally gets Evans down near the end of the round, but does nothing with the position. Likely 10-9 for Evans.

Round 2: Bocek comes out again looking for a quick takedown only to see it well-defended by Evans. A few attempts later, Bocek scores a double leg that puts Evans on his back. Evans works back to his feet only to be taken down again - this time by a big slam. Bocek works some solid elbows to close out the round, cutting Evans over the left eye in the process. 10-9 Bocek, with the last round likely deciding the winner.

Round 3: Bocek gets Evans down immediately to start the final round. He's not doing much with the position and the referee stands the two back up. Bocek again quickly gets Evans to the ground. Evans is now working for submissions from the bottom, but Bocek is avoiding them pretty easily. Referee again stands the combatants up as the round runs out. Should be Bocek's round and fight.

Mark Bocek def. Doug Evans via Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28 after 3 Rounds.

===============================================================

Fight #2:
-Tony DeSouza vs. Roan Carneiro

Round 1: Carneiro gets a takedown quickly on DeSouza to open the first. DeSouza is working for submissions from his back but doesn't lock any up enough to finish. Carneiro gets DeSouza's back and is looking for the rear naked choke. He transitions to a kimura attempt but DeSouza uses it to sweep Carneiro and take top position. The two battle for position to finish out the first round.

Round 2: The two are clinched against the cage here early in the second. Not a lot going on and the referee has enough. We get a restart. Carneiro gets an easy double-leg takedown but as DeSouza quickly gets back to his feet, Carneiro takes his back. He has him back on the ground now and is pounding away. The ref jumps in to stop the action, giving Carneiro the victory.

Roan Carneiro def. Tony DeSouza via TKO (ref stoppage - strikes) at 3:30 of Round 2.

===============================================================

Fight #3:
-Dean Lister vs. Jordan Radev

Round 1: Lister is working for a takedown here in the first. He's landing leg kicks and a few kicks to the body, but is only trying to distract Radev to get him down on the ground. Lister tries pulling guard, but that isn't working either. Radev is defending well the whole round, but Lister is more aggressive in terms of offense - so as the boring round ends, it should be 10-9 for Lister so far.

Round 2: The second round isn't giving me much to type about (and I struggled in round one as it is to find stuff to write about) as it's very similar to the previous round. The crowd is letting them have it, filling the sounds of the air with "boo's." Lister finally gets a takedown - and a big one at that near the end of the round. Lister gains mount and is working for an armbar. No dice. Lister is landing elbows to Radev's face as the round ends. Another 10-9 for Lister. Boring fight so far. Final round up next!

Round 3: Lister comes out again looking desperate to get Radev to the ground. He's not having much success yet either. Lister finally gets a takedown about half way through the round and quickly passes to half-guard. Nothing much happens as he remains on top doing little in terms of offense as the horn sounds to end the round, and probably wake up 80% of the audience that fell asleep during this contest.

Dean Lister def. Jordan Radev via Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) after 3 Rounds.

===============================================================

Fight #4:
-Manny Gamburyan vs. Nate Mohr

Round 1: Gamburyan comes out aggressively seeking a takedown, but fails in two attempts. Gamburyan gets Mohr down on attempt numero tres, and quickly drops back for a leg submission that forces a tap out quickly in round one.

Manny Gamburyan def. Nate Mohr via Submission (ankle lock) at 1:31 of Round 1.


===============================================================

Fight #5:
-James Irvin vs. Luis Cane

Round 1: Cane lands two big shots early in the round that hurt Irvin. Irvin decides to brawl back wildly himself. Cane is back-peddaling now and Irvin is bull-rushing in looking for a guillotine choke. While still on the ground, Cane crushes a knee into Irvin that knocks him out and ends the fight - but giving the the unconscious combatant the victory due to the finish being an illegal strike.

James Irvin def. Luis Cane via Disqualification (knee on ground) at 1:51 of Round 1.
