Due to serious injuries from the last WEC 51 event, a list of suspended fighters was issued. They are all suspended to be checked by doctors and to recover. This might sound to be an unfortunate event but it is for the good of the fighters.

Colorado Office of Boxing suspended eight fighters from last week’s WEC 51 event. Unfortunately, half of them might be out on the game for whole six months.

Among those who might be in serious half-year suspensions are main-card fighters Jamie Varner and Mark Hominick and preliminary-card fighters Mike Brown and Antonio Banuelos. WEC 51 will take place Sept. 30 at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colo., and the night’s main card to be aired on Versus.

WEC 51: George Roop KOs The Korean Zombie

Written on October 01, 2010 by John Paul Vill

Not much of a fight, George Roop gave with a fair kick that ended Jung's career. It was a short fight with flaws. Not much action but full of glory.

George Roop had a vicious left kick to Chan Sung Jung’s head in the second round of WEC 51. Knocking him unconscious and ending the fight with him on the spotlight.

The Korean Zombie became known after his fight with Leonard Garcia on WEC 48. But the fight was then sloppy and full of unnatiral defenses. Now Roop showed Jung how to fight roughly.

“He’s a brawler,” Roop said afterward. “I thought my precision striking was going to win the fight.”

Roop was good, standing up with Jung in the first round, and the one-kick knockout stopped the fight. A snap in a blink. The former TUF contender got his first WEC victory.

Garcia also fought and lost last Thursday night. A Jung-Garcia rematch is set for 2011.It would be an easy promotion to fans for sure. But it wouldn’t be promoted as MMA.

Roop demonstrated Jung’s flaw very dramatically. We believed that Garcia and Jung are way to far from being stars.

Jose Aldo Retains WEC Crown

Written on October 01, 2010 by Markham Mencken

The distance between World Extreme Cagefighting featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, and the rest of the 145-pound division may be wider than first thought. But with Junior retaining his crown, it seems otherwise.

Jose “Junior” Aldo stopped top contender Manny Gamburyan from taking away the belt at the WEC 51 last Thursday. At 92 seconds into round two, Gamburyan surrendered to Aldo’s second round punches and experienced his first defeat in his four WEC appearances. Surviving an early glance with Gamburyan, Aldo attacked his foe with a stream of leg kicks in the first round. He gave his opponent a straight right hand in the second round and approached for the finish. As Gamburyan dropped for a single-leg take-down, Junior handed him an uppercut and wheeled behind him followed by a furious stream of punches that left Manny Gamburyan unconscious.

Referee Herb Dean ended the fight at 1:32 and Aldo retained his crown. The 24-year-old Nova Uniao standout appears to have no equal in the featherweight division as he triumphed his 11th match.

Compiling a ten winning streak, Mike Thomas Brown was intercepted for a title shot via knockout loss courtesy of Jose Aldo. Now that he is re-making his trail to the mountain top, can he reach to the peak this time?

Already on the top of the mountain of mixed martial arts, Mike Thomas Brown was pushed down to the ladder with a knock out loss against Jose Aldo. Now, the 35-year-old fighter hopes to start another climb for a WEC title at WEC 51 on Thursday.

Brown has not competed since his defeat to Manny Gamburyan at WEC 48 last April. But nearly six years ago, he has not lost consecutive fights after his submission loss to Genki Sudo and Joe Lauzon. Brown scored 13 of his 23 victories by submission, and four via knockout. Also anchoring his resume are wins over Urijah Faber, Leonard Garcia, Jeff Curran and Yves Edwards. Still, Brown was not surprised that someone like Aldo came along to outperform him. Due to this, Brown has to face Cole Province in order to get a shot for the title.
