After winning the game of S.K.A.T.E. in Milan Italy, Alex Mizurov earned himself a trip to San Diego to compete at the world finals at last weekends ASR tradeshow. Just like last year Alex sailed through the AM competition securing another victory. Last year if you won the Am event you were able to compete in the PRO event, but this year GOS officials decided to change the rules. Should he have been able to compete? Would he have won again? I guess we'll never know.
Last night, before a sold-out crowd of 16, 235 at the O2 Arena in London England, it took 25 minutes for Quinton â€˜Rampageâ€™ Jackson to become the first man in mixed martial arts history to unify a major title, decisioning Dan Henderson over five hard-fought rounds to defend his UFC light heavyweight championship and take home Hendersonâ€™s PRIDE 205-pound belt in the process.
â€œA lot of people donâ€™t know that Iâ€™ve got Jiu-Jitsu,â€ said Jackson, whose ability to fight on the ground with the two-time Olympic wrestler may have been the deciding factor in the bout, which was scored 48-47 and 49-46 twice. With the win, Jackson improves to 30-6. For a post fight interview, photos, and full results from UFC 75 check out UFC.com.
