Just a few days after the biggest fight of the summer is a middle of the road card coming out of my backyard. UFC on Fuel 4 is at the Shark Tank and I’m not there. Why? Because it’s a Wednesday and people who live in the Silicon Valley work until 6 or 7PM. And also, I’m hesitant to pay good money for a show that’s low on interest and star power. And also, also, I have Fuel so I get to watch it for free (or 1/500th of my cable bill).
That being said, the main event should be good stuff.
1. Anthony Njokuani vs. Rafael Dos Anjos
Dos Anjos connected with a left that put Njokuani on the floor and he also had two takedowns in the round, though Njokuani did a great job getting up immediately.
Dos Anjos succeed twice more in getting Njokuani down including a big slam late in the second. Njokuani is clearly the better striker, but Dos Anjos is moving in and out, not letting Njokuani to really let anything go.
Njokuani could never really get off. Dos Anjos took him down 6 times in all and he’s going to win an easy decision.
Winner: Rafael Dos Anjos by way of unanimous decision
2. Vaughn Lee vs. TJ Dillashaw
Lee threw a kick, Dillashaw caught his leg and did something between a suplex and a fallaway body slam. Lee was stunned and Dillashaw took him down again. Dillashaw jumped on top of his back and sunk in a rear naked choke for the win.
Winner: TJ Dillashaw by way of 1st round submission
3. Francis Carmont vs. Karlos Vemola
