Lawler vs MacDonald was a war to end all wars

Tag: Robbie Lawler, Rory MacDonald, UFC 189, Events

UFC 189 will go into the record books as on of the best fight cards of all time.  I’m not spewing unsubstantiated opinion here, I mean of all time.  Fact of the matter is that there has not been as universally recognized night of fantastic fights on a PPV, in well, ever.  Credit goes to the fighters who all collectively brought their “A-game” to what was one of the most hyped and anticipated fight cards in modern history.  While the card was filled, repeat filled, with fantastic fights and finishes the real winner of the night has to go to the instant classic brought fourth in the battle between UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald.

XKO 26 goes down with a bang at Gas Monkey Live

Saturday night marked a culmination of sorts for Arlington based MMA promotion Xtreme Knockout.  For a little over five years the promotion, headed by the brothers Thomas and Chris Bussey along with their father Mike, have worked tirelessly to not only grow their promotion but elevate the MMA scene in North Texas behind fan-friendly fights and a fight atmosphere that can best be described as a massive block party. 

This brings us to Saturday night in what will go down in history as XKO 26.  XKO has left their home confines of the XKO Arena (a massive warehouse in Arlington) before.  The promotion had a pair of shows at the Dallas Convention Center in the past.  But this event, XKO 26, stood out as it was the premier of the promotion’s first fight card at the brand spanking new music venue, Gas Monkey Live.

MAIN EVENT UPDATE: Eduardo Galindo hit the scale at the weigh-in yesterday for the WBO NABO Junior Welterweight title 5 lbs over the limit at 145. He refused to lose the weight in the allowed 2 hour period (and in fact, gained slightly at the 2nd weigh-in). Galindo was fined and had to weigh-in this morning before NABO supervisor Porfirio Betegon at no more than 150 lbs. Galindo weighed in at 151. In spite of this, the Hooker camp is going forward with the fight.
