UFC is back in Berlin with two former lightweight title challengers Alexander Gustafsson (16-3) and Glover Teixeira (22-4) as the main event.

UFC Fight Night 69 will be held on June 20 at O2 World in Berlin, Germany.
Gustafsson was one step closer for a rematch with Lightweight King Jon Jones after the Swede's TKO victory over Jimi Manuwa in London, but in January in his home-country Gustafssons dream was broken by the fists of Anthony Johnson who is now scheduled to fight "Bones" instead.

Teixera must win this fight if he wants a chance for a second title opportunity in the near future. The Brazilian after first suffering a loss in the UFC to Jones next met Phil Davis in Rio who came as the underdog, but the American won in every round and walked away with a unanimous decision victory.

The WSOF 19 event at at Phoenix’s Comerica Theatre without doubt satisfied the fans. The main card was awesome where none of the four fights had no need for the judges and their score the cards. 

In the first main card bout, after a tough first round and some incidents in the second, Clifford Starks choked out (arm-triangle choke) Jake Heun at the last minute of the second round. Technical striker Timur Valiev needed only one and half minutes to destroy Ed West. 

In the co-main event Teddy Holder early i the match defeated Thiago Silva via TKO (punches) after he was himself rocked by the Brazilian. And in the main event Lightweight Champion Justin Gaethje and Luis Palomino stole the whole show already from the first minute of their fight where both men could have ended it in the first round. However, it was Palomino who mixed things up working with takedowns, clinch, elbows and even flying knees, but it was the low kicks which brought the victory to the American when in the third the challenger fell two times after a couple of them. The referee didn't want to stop the match and the Champion jumped with finishing blows to end the fight by TKO.

<![CDATA[Bellator 135 results: the new Champion Marcos Galvao submits Joe Warren]]>Sat, 28 Mar 2015 10:45:06 GMThttp://combatbear.com/6/post/2015/03/bellator-135-results-the-new-champion-marcos-galvao-submits-joe-warren.html
Marcos Galvao and Joe Warren met each others back in 2011 when the American won the match, but at the main event of Bellator 135 at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma, the two men were fighting for the bantamweight title and things turned out differently. In the opening round Warren was aggressive especially with his wrestling, scoring takedowns, while the Brazilian was more cautious he also scored some points with some punches and takedowns. In the next round Warren came out aggressively and was looking for a takedown from behind, but Galvao executed a sneaky role and Warren was in trouble as the Bazilian grabbed his leg and then submitted the American via verbal submission due to a kneebar.

In the co-main event the match up for L.C. Davis wasn't that easy when he faced Hideo Tokoro. The fight was intence. The American was better with his punches and looked stronger during grappling, while the Japanese was good with kicks and treathened his opponent with submissions. Both men survived all rounds inside the cage, but the judges gave the victory to Davis via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28).
