Admit it. You’ve been bad. Real bad. And you deserve a good ol’ fashioned beatin’. Guess who’s gonna provide it? Yeah. MMA Beatdown Radio, that’s who. The B-to-the-D is back for another star-studded episode. This week on the DieHards Radio Network, Mike, Amy and Alex Donno (790 AM The Ticket in Miami) will be joined by Sean McCorkle and Mike Dolce.
The gang will catch up with former UFC heavyweight Sean McCorkle (13-2), who has won three straight fights since his release from the UFC nearly a year ago. “Big Sexy” will talk about his upcoming super heavyweight fight for North American Allied Fight Series on Saturday in West Virginia, plus his fight on Bellator’s season-opening show in March a couple hours north of his Indianapolis home in Hammond, Ind.
Dolce has carved out arguably the most unique niche in mixed martial arts. And in the process, he’s become just about the busiest man in the sport, too. “The Dolce Diet” has become synonymous with the man behind it, who has helped clients like Thiago Alves go from brutal weight cuts – and brutal missed weights – to worry-free Fridays. Dolce is fresh off a big win for big client Vitor Belfort at UFC 142 in Brazil – ironically against Anthony Johnson, who had perhaps the most epic missed weight in UFC history. Dolce will talk about what’s next for him this week in Chicago and beyond, plus he’ll help steer us regular folk in the right direction on his Living Lean program.
The show streams live here at MMADiehards.com at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 PT. If you miss the live broadcast, you can catch it on the flipside. It’ll be available on demand RIGHT HERE after the completion of the broadcast or as a download at iTunes.
Jim Miller defeated Melvin Guillard after a close call early in the match.
Josh Neer choked Duane Ludwig unconscious, Pat Barry knocked out Christian Morecraft in the first round, and Mike Easton earned a decision win against Jared Papazian.
Miller had problems taking Guillard to the ground and even got rocked early in the bout. Guillard clearly had the upper-hand in the striking department, but Miller regained composure and continued to try to take “The Young Assassin” to the canvas. Miller got Guillard to the mat briefly. Guillard almost stood up, but Miller jumped on his back and secured a rear-naked choke. Guillard tried to withstand the submission, but the ending was near and Miller forced the tap-out.
Barry has been claiming his grappling game has improved since training with Brock Lesnar and it showed at UFC on FX 1. Barry stuffed a few of Morecraft’s takedown attempts, but the bout ultimately made it to the mat. Morecraft locked on a deep armbar and the fight appeared to be on its way to being stopped. However, Barry defended the submission and got back to his feet. Morecraft dared to trade punches with Barry and got clipped with a left hook. Barry planted four more punches on the downed Morecraft until the referee deemed the bout as over.
Neer and Ludwig engaged in a stand-up battle, but “The Dentist” continuously tried to bring the bout to the ground. When Neer would attempt a takedown, Ludwig would make him pay with knees and punches in the clinch. Neer accomplished a takedown, but Ludwig scrambled and tried to get the fight standing again. As Ludwig was standing up, Neer latched on a guillotine-choke and applied pressure. Neer held on until Ludwig was unconscious and the referee stopped the fight.
Easton came out of the tunnel fired up and ready for battle and he got one. No matter what Easton hit Papazian with, “The Jackhammer” would not quit. The two combatants stayed in each other’s face for all three rounds, blasting each other with punches and kicks. The action went until the final bell, with both Easton and Papazian battling for the victory. In the end, Easton managed to earn a majority draw from the judges in a tough fought battle from both parties.
