UFC 89 With Michael 'The Count' Bisping v Chris 'The Crippler' Leben

Liverpool Trio At UFC 89

British MMA Sensation Michael Bisping notched up another convincing win at UFC 89 in Birmingham on Saturday night with a unanimous decision. Michael put on a technical performance doing all he could to avoid the full power of Leben's hard left. It worked and British fans who had openly booed the two previous fights left happy.

Keith Jardine in his after fight speech said he had never been booed before and Joe Rogan in his defense accused British UFC fans of being drunk. In reality the fight between Jardine vs Vera was nothing less than lackluster and boring to say the least. Not what dedicated MMA fans here in the U.K. expect for their hard earnt cash. Keith Jardine won via a split decision.

Fight live 'Fight of the Night' goes to Sam Stout Vs Terry Etim. Liverpool's Etim dominated Stout firing off fast head strike combinations. Although Stout soaked up Etim's punches and kicks, he just couldn't get through the oncoming onslaught to deliver anything convincing in retaliation. Clearly Etim was the better fighter on the night. Paul Kelly was hoping to make it 3 - 0 for Liverpool, but was defeated in the second round by a guillotine choke.
