Jose Ramirez, annihilates opponent


2012 US Olympian welterweight Jose Ramirez (12-0, 9 KOs) impressed again, destroying David Rodela (17-10-4, 7 KOs) in the first round on Saturday before a sellout crowd at the Selland Arena in Fresno, California. A right hook put Rodela down for the count after just 50 seconds. With the win, Ramirez claimed the vacant “junior” NABF welterweight title, his first title as a professional. The bout topped a card billed as “Fight for Water 3″ to bring attention to the ongoing battle against water shortages in California’s Central Valley.






UFC 179  Results: Jose Aldo Defends Title in Memorable War

Many people believed the new-and-improved Chad Mendes would be Jose Aldo’s toughest test to date, and the featherweight champ survived a stern test tonight at UFC 179.

Aldo was sent to the mat early on in the bout, and took more than a few telling shots from Mendes, but he also knocked the challenger down on a couple of occasions. In fact, one of Aldo’s knockdowns took place after the bell, but Mendes was also warned two times for eye pokes.

After the thrilling, back-and-forth slugfest,  a bloodied Aldo was awarded a 49-46 score by all three judges, and retained the featherweight title. The renowned fighter has now won 18 straight fights. In 2012, Aldo KO’d Mendes in the opening round.
