UFC 121 live results might be something that’s easy for you to come by, but live UFC 121 results with my play by play and worthless two cents is a treat that you won’t find anywhere else. Not even if you go to door to door looking for it. O.k. no sense in keeping up the non-sense, it’s been a long time since I posted live UFC results and I figured this Brock Lesnar vs Cain Velasquez UFC 121 event might be the perfect time to start again.

Gabriel Gonzaga vs Brendan Schaub
First fight of the night on the UFC 121 PPV fight card.
Schaub is doing a good job staying to the outside of Gonzaga and already the newbie UFC fans are booing, for no reason might I add. 4:30 in the first. Schaub is looking good working from the outside and getting inside when he needs to, walking through Gonzaga’s punches. Gonzaga and Schaub mixed it up for most of the first round with Gonzaga being rubber legged on two different occasions. Schaub knocked Gonzaga down to close out the first round.
The second round is underway. I can’t help but feel that Schaub is on a pace to KO Gonzaga if things continue in the fashion that they are. Gonzaga is finally starting to open up the leg kicks which has Schaub slowing down a bit. Brendan Schaub is back to controlling and pushing the action, which is exactly what seems to be throwing Gonzaga off his game plan.
Schaub continues to swarm Gonzaga against the cage and in the center of the ring, and it’s clear Gonzaga has nothing more then a few random kicks to answer with. Heading in to round 3 it’s all Brendan Schaub.
Round 3 is underway, Schaub looking as if he might be heading to the movies after the fight and Gonzaga looking like a meat cleaver met his face. Not much action in the first 2:30 seconds of the third round, small exchanges between both fighters. It looks like this fight will be going to a decision, without any weird “Londonish” judging issues I see Brendan Schaub winning this fight.
Winner by Unanimous decision Brendan “The Hybrid” Schaub.
Tito Ortiz vs Matt Hamill
Hamill is walking out to the cage now.
The first round is underway. Tito is attacking Hamill, even managed to nail Hamill with a head kick. Hamill just took Tito down, Ortiz manages to get to his feet and hits Hamill with a head kick. Both fighters seem to be staying in the center of the ring, Tito staying aggressive with kicks and punches. Tito does have a mouse under his right eye and a cut on the side of his head, I’m not sure what the cut on the side of the head is from but it’s not a game changer.
As the first round comes to an end I would have to say Hamill won the first round with solid jabs and better exchanges overall.
The second round is underway, Hamill’s corner was calling for Matt to let his hands go and be aggressive in this round. Most of the early part of the second round was spent exchanging punches and kicks in the center of the ring, nothing too exciting just keeping the pace. Matt Hamill controls position with a takedown and Tito on his back. Ortiz went for an ankle lock, now Hamill controls in side control.
Second round comes to an end with Hamill controlling position and Tito taking shots on the bottom. I would call second round for Hamill.
Ricco Rodriguez is in Tito Ortiz’s corner and yelling to Tito that he needs to knock Hamill out, you can see Tito fighting with a sense of urgency all though Matt Hamill is still winning the striking game. Tito just looked at the clock and it’s evident that his face has been on the receiving end of Matt Hamill’s jab for most of the night, Hamill just drove Ortiz to the canvas with 1:15 left.
Matt Hamill has Ortiz down and continues to ground and pound Tito, it’s clear the student has beaten the teacher. The fight will go to the score cards.
Winner by Unanimous decision Matt “The Hammer” Hamill.
Diego Sanchez vs Paulo Thiago
Both fighters are against the cage, Thiago has the better position and continues to try and knee and take Diego Sanchez down. Thiago has Sanchez down and continues to throw some pretty heavy hands as he controls Diego on the ground. For a quick moment Paulo Thiago had Sanchez in a choke, now both fighters are back standing. Thiago closed the first round pretty strong with a flurry, I would have to give the first round to Thiago.
Second round is underway. After some crazy exchange and some back and forth Diego is now sitting on top of Paulo Thiago. Now Diego controls via the top position, he’s in Paulo’s guard. Diego just slammed Thiago after carrying and screaming with Paulo Thiago in his arms across the ring. Diego has Paulo Thiago’s back and continues to punch Thiago against the cage as the clock runs down in the third.
Coming out for the third round Paulo Thiago looks gassed and his face is looking pretty abused. I’m calling Diego to finish this fight in this round, Diego has Paul Thaigo down again and in half mount. Diego Sanchez is working on a rear naked choke and has Paulo Thiago in a body triangle. At this point Diego is in full control, after a brief break Sanhcez is back on top controlling Thiago.
The round is getting ready to come to an end, we have another decision and this should be no different then the last two. Diego finished strong in full mount pounding on Paulo Thiago, my guess is going to be decision Diego Sanchez.
The winner by Unanimous decision, Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez.
Jake Shields vs Martin Kampmann
Round one kicked off with Jake Shields taking Kampmann down, Shields is on top in side control. Martin Kampmann escapes disaster and gets back to his feet, Shields is still hanging on ultimately looking for the takedown. As the first round comes to an end, Jake Shields look VERY tired and his strikes (which already seemed weak) are looking to be more soft then before, and Kampmann has managed to fight off Sheilds takedown attempts towards the end of the round. First round Sheilds, dominating on the ground.
Kampmann just leveled Shields with a knee, now has a front darce choke only for a moment. Sheilds has Kampmann back down and continues to fight for a mount position. Both fighters are back to their feet, Shields is showing the effects of a the knee and he seems to be extremely winded as he continues to look at the clock, Shields works a takedown and ends up back on top. This is going to be a tough round to score all though Kampmann did drop Shields with a knee earlier in the round which should give Kampmann the round. Shields is beyond exhausted.
Coming out for the third round Kampmann looks fresh and starts off the round stuffing a Jake Shields takedown. Martin Kampmann is dominating the round with kicks, knees and strikes. Shields continues to get stuffed on the takedown attempts and the night seems to be turning for the worst for Jake Sheilds who can barely seem to hold his own weight up.
Shields has Kampmann’s back and a body triangle, all thanks to Martin Kampmann trying to choke Shields out. Kampmann should have kept the fight standing instead of trying to choke out Shields, it might have cost him a very important round. Tough fight to score.
Winner is by split decision, Jake Shields.
Brock Lesnar vs Cain Velasquez
It’s time for round one. Lesnar comes out on fire and hits Cain with some big knees and strikes, works the takedown and Cain manages to get back to his feet. Lesnar is hurt Velasquez has Brock down. Cain is holding down Lesnar and pounding, picking his shots wisely.
New England PatriotsW Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez!!
