THE FINAL WEC: UGLY TRIANGLE FOR COWBOY. BUT, WE'll TAKE IT.


Of course you stayed home last night to watched the last WEC on Versus.  Maybe you got a little teary eyed thinking about how it's going away and being absorbed in to the UFC.  That's pretty weird, but we understand.

Not too much high level jiu jitz/sub grappling throughout the event from our POV.  The main event  (Henderson v. Pettis) had the most athletic and consistent ground fighting of the main card.  Lots of back and forth between standing and ground with multiple submission attempts (including the patented Henderson guillotine).  Check the play-by-play here.

The only submission on the main card was a clumsyish, rather ugly, triangle applied by Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone on Chris Horodecki.  It wasn't pretty, but it got the job done.  Not overly impressive considering Horodecki is not a skilled ground fighter, but the guy does have a decent resume and hadn't lost by submission before.

  1. It wasn't jiu jitsu and I didn't see the fight, but damn, that kick which has been popping up all over the forums was very cool.

  2. The kick was cool but the result was an advantage. It did not knock out Ben. That guy is a piece of steel. Henderson competes in bjj tournaments in Arizona his home state which is pretty darned cool. Good for Pettis. Hes a likeable guy.
