Highs, Lows, and Oh-No’s UFC 152 Edition

Welcome to a new feature here at MMARecap entitled Highs, Lows, and Oh-No’s where we talk about all the good, the bad, and either an extremely good or bad thing about an event. For our inaugural article we figured we would spotlight UFC 152.

Highs
Jon Jones retains his title with his fourth round submission over Vitor Belfort. The victory marks the eighth straight victory for Jones and fourth successful title defense. He is slowly creeping in on Tito Ortiz’s rein as it seems no one has the answer to stop Jones.

Cub Swanson finishes his third straight fight making a big name for himself in the featherweight division. Right now most people are talking about Jose Aldo and his fight against Frankie Edgar. Others were talking about Ricardo Lamas as he is arguably one of the top guys in the division. And even though Lamas has a victory over Swanson, it is hard to ignore what Swanson has done since earning either a knockout or technical knockout against his opponents.

Lows
The crowd booing during the Demetrious Johnson – Joseph Benavidez flyweight title fight. The fight was non-stop action from start to finish and was twenty-five minutes long. Rogan commentated how it seemed like Johnson was seeing everything before it happened and for most of the fight it was. Benavidez nearly finished after landing a big punch and jumped on with the guillotine choke, but Johnson escaped and the fight went on. How the crowd was booing that fight is beyond me. Even Dana White had something to say to those fans stating “Don’t ever buy another UFC card. I don’t want your money. You’re a moron, you don’t like fighting, you don’t appreciate great talent or heart, if you didn’t like that flyweight fight.”

Oh-No’s
Vitor Belfort almost became the UFC light heavyweight champion just minutes into his fight with Jones. After Jones took him down as part of his game plan, Belfort locked in an armbar that was extremely tight Jones’s elbow popped a bit. Belfort released the pressure just for a second after hearing the pop and that enabled Jones to escape the submission. The mma world would be completely abuzz in a different manner had Belfort actually broken the arm of Jones and walked away the victor.
