UFC 158 is well under way and if you are like some of us, you don’t have time for those pesky prelims, even though you’d like to be one of those “prelims people,” and that is alright, because you read MMANuts.com and we have you covered. The prelims were a wild affair by most standards with some big TKO finishes up and down the card. Stay tuned to MMANuts for more UFC 158 updates.
The biggest stories walking away from the prelims has to be the huge KO that T.J. Dillashaw scored on Issei Tamura as well as the way that Jordan Mein obliterated UFC vet Dan Miller in the first round. John Makdessi and Daron Cruickshank had an entertaining stand up scrap that featured a few too many fouls, but was still entertaining. The stoppage in Elkins vs. Carvalho was unfortunate, to say the least, with Carvalho popping right back up and walking back towards Elkins when Yves Lavigne stopped the fight, many believe prematurely. Patrick Cote’s Welterweight debut was met by a very, very game Bobby Voelker who took the fight to Cote throughout. Cote was able to do just enough to eek out the decision in a rather lackluster Welterweight debut.
