Bj Penn Vs Matt Hughes 3, Fans and friends. UFC 123, that is. “Machida vs. Rampage” is a thing of the past. It was a night full of surprises and a quantity not carelessness on the controversy. In the main event, former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton Jackson won against other former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida in a fight that even “Rampage” felt was so incredibly close that it deserves an immediate rematch. In addition, the long-standing rivalry between the former UFC Welterweight Champion BJ Penn and Matt Hughes came to a dramatic end to the UFC 123, with Penn KO’ing Hughes before the half-minute. Here are the full results and some comments for the UFC 123: “Rampage vs. Machida.
Quinton Jackson defeats Lyoto Machida via Split Decision. BJ Penn defeated Matt Hughes by TKO (strikes) at 0:21 of Round 1. Falcao Maiquel defeats Gerald Harris by unanimous decision. Phil Davis defeats Tim Boetsch via Submission (Kimura) at 2:55 of Round 2. George Sotiropoulos defeated Joe Lauzon via Submission (Kimura) at 2:43 of Round 2. Brian Foster defeats Matt Brown via Submission (Guillotine) at 2:11 of Round 2. Mark Munoz defeats Aaron Simpson by unanimous decision. Dennis Hallman defeats Karo Parisyan via TKO (strikes) at 1:47 in Round 1. Edson Barboza defeats Mike Lullo by TKO at 0:26 of Round 3. Paul Kelly defeats TJ O’Brien by TKO (strikes) at 3:16 of Round 2. Nik Lentz defeats Tyson Griffin by split decision.
I very, very mixed feelings regarding the main event. I consider myself a fan of both men, but a bigger fan of Machida. I think it’s a fight that will be discussed extensively in the weeks to come, at least. I think it was a very close fight with the third round wills undoubtedly Machida. However, with or without controversy this game managed to live up to most of its potential. I’m excited for a rematch, and I think we’ll get it sooner than later.
I guess that’s what I get for doubting BJ Penn. It is indisputable and undeniable: BJ Penn is back on the comeback trail and perhaps better than ever. He looked incredible against Matt Hughes, who I and many others had more than a passing thought to fly “Baby Jay.” BJ needed a large and dominant win almost the worst possible way, and it was just that at UFC 123. Whatever the future holds for BJ Penn is in the Welterweight or Lightweight division, an important question has been answered at UFC 123: BJ Penn does not. Not far from there.
I also noticed that the “123 Series UFC Live” special delivered an hour of action to be taken in the television official Pay-Per-View. Mark Munoz and Aaron Simpson gave us three good action-packed rounds, while Brian Foster and Matt Brown fought to a finish very entertaining presentation. Add to the projection of the Parisyan / Hallman fight which took place earlier in the evening and you had reason enough to tune and watch TV for free on MMA.
Overall, the UFC 123 was a very strong event with several notable battles. I think we will feel the impact of this event for some time and I look forward to seeing what the future holds some of the big winners of the night and losers.
