411’s UFC 229 Report 10.06.18

October 7, 2018 | Posted by Robert Winfree

Hello everyone and welcome to 411mania’s LIVE coverage of UFC 229. I’m Robert Winfree and I’ll be your host for the evening, relaying all of the action to you good people just as I see it. This is the big one folks, the event that could become the biggest success in UFC history. In the main event former two division champion Conor McGregor returns after a near two year layoff, and failed bid at defeating Floyd Mayweather Jr. in a boxing match, to try and reclaim the lightweight title. Standing in his way is an undefeated smashing machine, Khabib Nurmagomedov who hasn’t lost a single round in his UFC career. The combination should make for the most purchased PPV in UFC history on the business side of things, and make for one of the most anticipated fights in years on the sporting side of things.

The co-main event should crown the next lightweight title challenger as former interim champion Tony Ferguson returns after a knee injury to take on former champion Anthony Pettis. Elsewhere we’ve got a relevant heavyweight fight between Derrick Lewis and Alexander Volkov which would normally crown a number one contender, but the current heavyweight division is going to be held up with Cormier vs. Lesnar so it’s unlikely to actually do that. Also rising prospect Dominick Reyes takes on Ovince Saint Preux. The rest of the card isn’t terribly inspiring on paper, but this entire card is built around the top fight anyway.

UFC 229 comes to the world from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. On commentary we have Jon Anik, Joe Rogan, and Dominick Cruz. As for the rules, Nevada has not yet adopted the new rules. That means anything besides the soles of your feet on the mat means a fighter is considered downed, scoring language isn’t the best and discourages 10-8’s, but we will have the use of instant replay for fight ending sequences.

One minor production note. I know a few of you give me grief about “Face the Pain”, some of you just to poke at me a few of you sincerely. My own hatred for that song and it’s continued use to punish fans for being able to hear is well documented. Tonight the UFC plans to open the PPV with the following.

More of this please, less crappy nu metal.

Ryan LaFlare has been a solid but somewhat unremarkable welterweight for his UFC tenure. LaFlare is coming off of a win though and is looking for his third UFC winning streak. Tony Martin was a middle of the road lightweight but looked decent in his return to welterweight, now he’s trying to keep that streak going and assert himself in his new division. LaFlare is a slight -140 favorite to +110 on Martin.

Welterweight Bout: Ryan LaFlare (14-2, 171 lbs.) vs. Tony Martin (13-4, 171 lbs.)

ROUND ONE: LaFlare is an inch taller and has half an inch of reach on Martin. They touch gloves to start things off, LaFlare fighting southpaw. Both guys flashing and pawing with the lead hand, LaFlare lands a couple of leg kicks. LaFlare seems to be working inside leg kicks and front kicks to the body, and he’s got one that hit the groin of Martin. Martin is good to continue rather quickly and we’re back to fighting. Another body kick from LaFlare, there’s already redness on the ribs and belly of Martin. Martin is struggling to find the range here and LaFlare is picking at him with kicks. They clinch up and hit the fence. Martin has a body lock but can’t get anything going so he breaks the clinch. Front kick to the body from LaFlare lands. Bit of a counter right from Martin, LaFlare isn’t moving his head when he tries to close distance and Martin might be getting a read on that. Hard couple of body kicks from LaFlare, that’s easily been his best weapon so far. Martin lands another straight right that off balances LaFlare. Right uppercut lands for Martin but he eats a hard body kick and LaFlare shoots a double leg. They hit the fence and stall out with LaFlare looking for a takedown.

SCORECARD: 10-9 LaFlare but with that knockdown could go to Martin

ROUND TWO: Both guys back to pawing with the lead hand. Martin lands a bit of an inside leg kick. A couple of front kicks to the body from LaFlare land. Another counter right from Martin drops LaFlare, this time he gets on top and starts pounding from the guard as LaFlare works to control posture. Martin to half guard, and LaFlare is cut over the left eyebrow. Martin is setting up a pass and threatening the far side of LaFlare’s body but LaFlare is good about keeping on a hip and defending. LaFlare to his knees and Martin looks to get the back from a ride position. Full back mount now for Martin and he’s close to getting the rear naked choke. LaFlare is able to spin and wind up on bottom again with Martin on top. Martin is setting up a d’arce choke, one of LaFlare’s legs is hooked but he doesn’t have the choke cinched up all the way yet. The choke tightens up but LaFlare spins free and regains his feet. Martin lands that counter right again, LaFlare seems to have learned nothing from his bad distance closing in the Alex Oliveira fight. They just circle away the last thirty seconds or so.

SCORECARD: 10-9 Martin, might be 10-8, 19-19 overall

ROUND THREE: Bit of a one two from Martin starts the last round. Body kick from LaFlare but he’s still squaring up too much from that kick. Hard inside leg kick from LaFlare then Martin lands a right that wobbles him. Head kick from Martin ENDS LaFlare’s night but the ref wants to see him get slammed with a few hammer fists before he’ll call the fight.

OFFICIAL RESULT: †WINNER – Tony Martin via KO, head kick, at 1:00 of Round 3

The Final Round Finish Club thanks Mr. Martin for his work this evening. Mic time for Martin now, he puts over LaFlare as tough but calls himself a bad man. He puts over his new striking coach for getting him here and says he knew he’d beat him, puts over his work ethic, then says all the other welterweight’s better start shooting on him because his striking is coming up.

Here’s the finish. Martin had been landing that straight right with more and more frequency, this time Martin throws the right as a feint more than anything else and when LaFlare bites on it to bat it away he’s wide open for the follow up head kick that ends him.

Gray Maynard is returning to lightweight after going 2-1 at featherweight, but that weight cut was just too much for him apparently and he’s back in the division where he twice fought for the title. Maynard hasn’t won at lightweight since beating Clay Guida back in 2012 and he’s hoping to remind people that he can be a force in the division. Nik Lentz is another fighter who’s been very hit and miss, he’s coming off of a loss to David Teymur and is mostly trying to avoid his first losing streak in more than six years. The odds are with Lentz at -250 to +200 on Maynard.

Lightweight Bout: Nik Lentz (28-9-2 1 NC, 156 lbs.) vs. Gray Maynard (13-6-1 1 NC, 156 lbs.)

ROUND ONE: Maynard is an inch taller and has two inches of reach on Lentz. Lentz fighting southpaw, and he starts out circling. Bit of a right from Lentz then Maynard misses a kick. Leg kick from Lentz, who seems to be doing a bit of stance switching now. Another leg kick from Lentz lands and he avoids a right hook from Maynard. Solid right then a left from Lentz. Counter right hook from Lentz wobbles Maynard and Maynard puts his back on the fence to try and recover. They clinch and Lentz has the back standing and is landing lefts to the head of Maynard. Lentz gets that takedown briefly, he’s landing lefts as Maynard tries to wall walk from his knees. Maynard is back up but he’s not getting free. Lentz lands a knee as they break. body kick from Maynard but Lentz lands a counter right hook. Another right from Lentz then a knee to the body, Maynard is down but bounces back up and eats elbows and knees. There’s an uppercut from Maynard but Lentz takes him down and starts elbowing from half guard. Now a guillotine from Lentz, he sits for it, arm in, rolls to mount then releases it to settle into top position half guard. This is getting hard to watch, Maynard isn’t all there. Another few elbows from Lentz land, he’s keeping Maynard flat on his back and is hurting him. There’s swelling around the left eye of Maynard and Lentz is just abusing him. A hard flurry of punches from Lentz nearly finish things, Maynard to his knees again and Lentz to the ride position to land more punches. Maynard keeps moving, he’s up but eats a few knees to the head then another elbow as the round ends. Maynard’s corner should consider stopping this.

SCORECARD: 10-8 Lentz

ROUND TWO: Of course, MMA cornering being what it is, Maynard is allowed to come back out. Lentz opens southpaw but will change his stance a lot. Bit of a right from Maynard but he complains of an eye poke and we’ve got time. Replay confirms the eye poke and the doctor is in to check on Maynard, time to see if he wants a way out or not. The doctor says he can continue and we’re back to fighting. Bit of a counter right from Lentz. Maynard seems to be moving well now at least, then Mayanrd lands a right but eats a couple of hard counters. These two are throwing bombs but Lentz cracks Maynard with a head kick that floors Maynard and the ref immediately halts the action.

OFFICIAL RESULT: †WINNER – Nik Lentz via TKO, head kick and punches, at 1:19 of Round 2

I’m fine with that stoppage, though Maynard is complaining a bit. He wasn’t out cold but after all the damage he took in the first I’m OK with it. Lentz on the mic now, he gives a shout out to freshly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and you can tell the crowd isn’t really here because there’s no reaction positive or negative. He says he’s worked hard on his striking and feels at his best southpaw, then says he’ll fight anyone in the UFC be that at the top or bottom.

Here’s the finish. They trade some power punches then Lentz uses a similar set up to Martin in that he reaches with the power hand to draw a reaction then kicks over the shoulder with the power leg. Maynard nearly face plants and the ref saves him from taking more damage.

Lina Lansberg has been trading wins and losses in the UFC, she’s coming off of a win though and is after her first UFC winning streak. Yana Kunitskaya lost her UFC debut when she ran into Cris “Cyborg” Justino but is trying to get that all important first UFC win under her belt. Kunitskaya is your favorite at -225 against a +175 comeback on Lansberg.

Women’s Bantamweight Bout: Yana Kunitskaya (10-4 1 NC, 134.5 lbs.) vs. #12 Lina Lansberg (8-3, 135.5 lbs.)

They’re up but Lansberg is still on the fence while Kunitskaya lands a few knees. Both seem content to fight in the clinch for a bit and trade knees to the body while looking for a throw of some kind. Kunitskaya holding the head, bad idea as it let’s Lansberg slide out and get the back then move back chest to chest with a body lock. They jockey for position and Kunitskaya gets another hip toss into side control. Kunitskaya is after a mounted crucifix but can’t get it. There’s a north-south choke possible but Kunitskaya either doesn’t know it or doesn’t like it. Elbows to the body from Kunitskaya close out the round.

In case you missed the finish. This includes the pull back counter right from Holtzman that floored Patrick, he baits Patrick into extending then angles and cracks him. As for the elbows on the mat, those are academic from mount with all of his weight behind them and Patrick goes to sleep.

Aspen Ladd is coming off of a successful UFC debut when she beat Lina Lansberg and found herself as a ranked contender. Ladd is hoping to continue that momentum here and position herself more towards the top of the division. Tonya Evinger just had a long winning streak snapped by Cris “Cyborg” Justino when Evinger made her UFC debut, now she’s trying to re-establish herself as a bantamweight contender while getting that all important first UFC win. Despite Evinger’s veteran status the odds are with Ladd at -165 against a +150 payout for Evinger.

The First Round Finish Club thanks Ms. Ladd for her work this evening. That was very impressive from Ladd. Ladd gets an interview and puts over her preparation for this fight. She says she’s been looking at Evinger for a long time as Evinger was the former Invicta champ but they wound up fighting in the UFC instead. She says that in the cage you have no friends to close her interview.

Here’s the finish. Once Ladd got on top she had incredible control and found every opportunity to land blows on Evinger until they added up to the stoppage.

To kill time we head to the analyst desk, which is Karyn Bryant, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, and Michael Bisping in this case. Woodley is solid as usual, Bisping needs to redeem himself after his last trip on the desk made it seem like he was on some kind of drugs.

Vicente Luque has had a solid UFC run so far, he’s 6-2 in the promotion. Luque is currently on a two fight winning streak and trying to get another shot at ranked opposition. Jalin Turner is on a three fight winning streak and was last seen on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series where he was successful when his opponent broke his foot. Turner is looking to spring a considerable upset and announce his arrival in the UFC in a big way. Speaking of the odds, they’re heavily with Luque at -900 to a whopping +575 comeback for Turner.

Welterweight Bout: Vicente Luque (13-6-1, 170.5 lbs.) vs. Jalin Turner (7-3, 169.5 lbs.)

The First Round Finish Club thanks Mr. Luque for his work this evening. Luque gets an interview after that emphatic finish, and he starts by giving glory to God and insists he never underestimated Turner. He talks us through the finish and says he knew he couldn’t give Turner the chance to recover and rather than ask for a top fifteen guy he wants a top ten guy and says he wants to get to the title.

To fill broadcast time we get a replay of Maynard vs. Lentz.

Sergio Pettis has spent a lot of years in his brother’s shadow but is coming off of a massive win when he bested Joseph Benavidez. Pettis is looking to position himself for a rematch with Henry Cejudo with another win here. Jussier Formiga has been one of the best flyweights for a few years now but he’s always stumbled when placed on a bit stage. Formiga is on a two fight winning streak and has finished both of those fights, if he can keep that streak alive here he could be the one in title contention next instead of Pettis. The odds are close but favor Pettis at -175 to +145 for Formiga.

Pettis gets that arm out from under his chin but he’s still in a bad position. Pettis is trying to get the body triangle off but he can’t and Formiga is landing punches to the body and head. Now they move to the middle of the cage but Formiga just will not be removed from the back of Pettis and that’s how the fight will end.

SCORECARD: 10-9 Formiga, 30-27 Formiga overall

OFFICIAL RESULT: †WINNER – Jussier Formiga via unanimous decision (30-26, 29-28 x2)

The third round would be a 10-8 under the new rules, not the old ones though. Mic time for Formiga as the crowd boos, the Cult of Conor has clearly arrived, and he dismisses the boos and says you do what you have to do and then take the next step in your career. Asked about a rematch with new champion Henry Cejudo he tells Cejudo that he’s next.

That’s it for prelims, to PPV for the main card. We open with a brief tribute to the mass shooting that took place in Vegas a little over a year ago, then get that excellent video package embedded above.

Michelle Waterson has gone 3-2 in the UFC but only recently broke a two fight losing streak with a somewhat dubious split decision, now she’s trying to get another winning streak up and running.

She puts over Herrig and says she’s excited to be putting her practice into real time.

Derrick Lewis is on a really good run right now, he’s only lost once in his last nine fights and is on a two fight winning streak right now. Lewis could essentially force a title shot with a win here, assuming the division operates normally. Alexander Volkov is on one of the best runs of his career, he’s on a six fight winning streak including being 4-0 in the UFC an he’s coming off of a big win over former champion Fabricio Werdum. Volkov is also looking to get himself into the title picture, mostly an effort wasted as the division will be tied up with Lesnar based shenanigans for another six to seven months. Volkov is your favorite at -155 to +125 for Lewis.

Lewis on the mic now, he says he took his pants off because his balls were hot, there is only one Derrick Lewis people. He says he’s nothing but heart and people keep under estimating him because he’s not technical but he’s getting there. He jokes that President Trump called him and told him to knock out the “Russian Mother F*cker”. To close he says he needs more cardio and says he’s not viable for a title fight with cardio like he’s got right now and wants to smoke some weed with Joe Rogan on Rogan’s podcast.

The finish in case you missed it. Volkov’s decision to step forward and look for that knee was the absolute worst thing he could have done, just needed to stay safe for 20 seconds.

Ovince Saint Preux is rapidly running out of time to make good on the potential that people have spent the last ten plus years talking about.

OFFICIAL RESULT: †WINNER and STILL UFC Lightweight Champion – Khabib Nurmagomedov via Submission, rear naked choke, at 3:03 of Round 4

Naturally I’m missing the announcement and interview, because FML. Apparently McGregor and Nurmagomedov got into an altercation after the fight, corners involved, even Daniel Cormier basically jumped the barrier to calm things down. Insane. The bruhaha calms down but commentary buries the whole thing.

Guys, Nurmagomedov is from one of the most violent places on the planet and McGregor threw a hand truck at his head. You can’t be surprised by this. Commentary tries to turn McGregor into the victim here, I need a full replay to confirm but I can’t buy that. Dana White wont put the belt on Nurmagomedov in the cage, fearing a riot as the Irish are in force here and not happy. Security escorts Nurmagomedov to the back. Bruce Buffer still announces the decision amid boos, but Khabib is still the champion officially.

You promote a fight with wanton criminality, you shouldn’t be surprised when fighters act like this.

Well that was a thing that happened. The UFC likely buries Nurmagomedov going forward, then uses all of this to promote a rematch because they’re shameless like that. I need time to sort out my feelings on this whole thing, but I’ll have them in some form ready for the 411 Ground and Pound Radio Show tomorrow. Thank you for being here guys, through the good and the bad, and the insane. That wraps up UFC 229, on that insanity. I’ll be reviewing all of this tomorrow on the 411 Ground and Pound Radio Show, feel free to leave questions or comments below or tweet me @WinfreeMMA and I’ll try to get them on the air.

Until then everyone, thank you again for the support, stay safe out there and keep checking 411mania for all of your pop culture needs.
