The Battle at the Bayou is over and the results are in:
Main Card Bouts:
In tonight's bouts, Mr. Shields and Mr. Brookins helped illustrate the point I was trying to make in my "The Evolution of the MMA Fighter" article. Brookins tried repeatedly to get the fight to the ground and ended up getting nothing more than a pale version of an old Randy Couture performance while Shields ate a knee when he attempted an ill conceived take-down.
The big winners tonight are clearly Ellenberger and Belcher who both can become relevant in a title picture in divisions where it's becoming difficult to find a compelling opponent for the champion.
