When I heard that the UFC 125 fighters were making a video of their New Year's resolutions, the only thing I could think of as a good resolution for them was to stop getting hit in the head.
Obviously I was not surprised when most of them talked about beating each other up.
What I was surprised about was the fact that most of the guys seemed to have a sense of humor about the resolutions. My personal favorites were Gray Maynard saying that he wants to help solve the world peace problem after he “kicks Frankie’s ass,” Clay Guida saying that he wants to travel more in his R.V. (of course he has an R.V.), and Dong Hyun Kim saying that he wanted to “bitch-slap Nate (Diaz) back to 2009.”
While this shows the fun side of the UFC 125 fighters, the real story was what happened in the ring.
In the fight between Guida and Takanori Gomi, Guida won via submission in the second round. Kim was able to “bitch-slap” Nate in their match, winning by unanimous decision.
Brandon Vera was not able to live up to his resolution as he fell to Thiago Silva by unanimous decision.
The only knockout of the night came when Brian Stann beat Chris Leben in the first round.
Lastly, Frankie Edgar and Maynard fought to a draw in the championship bout, meaning Edgar held onto his belt.
UFC 126 will be held February 5 and feature a championship bout between Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort.
