UFC 87 Play by Play

Stuck without tonight’s UFC pay per view? Still want to experience the magic of Brock Lesnar’s cock chestnar, or Roger Huerta getting sliced up by Kenny Florian? Then you’re in the right place! We’ll be providing blow by blow coverage of the fights and everything else happening on the pay per view!

So you ready for this shit? Then let’s get it on!

9:50 Leading up to the show. I’ve got my snacks all lined up and we’re ready to go!

10:00 The gladiator once again. He is a rock in these uncertain times. I was kinda hoping that there’d be an update on par with what they did with UFC Fight Night but so far, same old.

10:05 They somehow manage to string together enough ‘highlights’ out of Lesnar/Mir for Lesnar’s segment of the “Bring the Pain” montage. Impressive. Goddamn, the Target Center looks full to the tits. Joe Rogan’s stubble etc is looking less ‘carefully manufactured’ and more ‘three day bender’. I guess that’s what happens when you have a new kid.


As Jason MacDonald gets cockier, his head seems to be looking more and more like a bright red cock. Appropriate. Maia is looking ready to take Miguel Torres on in an Eddie Guerrero lookalike contest.

Jason MacDonald seems to think he’s the underdog somehow in this fight. Does he know how to read odds?

Maia comes in with Wanderlei Silva in his corner. My hopes of him being able to throw a non-embarassing punch increases.


Maia lands a good leg kick and follows upwith a high kick. MacDonald steps in and clinches, Maia jumps into guard and pulls MacDonald down. Oh shit, MacDonald is about an inch away from getting subbed out with a triangle. And Now Maia locks the triangle up and is applying pressure … somehow MacDonald isn’t tapping, so Maia starts unloading with elbows to the head.

What the fuck is this! MacDonald turns around and pops out of the triangle and immediately takes Maia’s back, grabbing a choke. It’s looking pretty damn good for about 30 seconds until Maia escapes and they’re back with Maia on bottom in guard. 2 minutes left.

MacDonald is trying to pass but ain’t getting anywhere. So he then stands up and starts throwing punches down. After a few punches he follows his punch in and goes for a guillotine choke. He gives up position to work the choke and Maia’s on top now, and escapes the choke. He twists onto MacDonald’s back and tries to work a choke for the final 30 seconds, nearly getting it but the horn sounds and MacDonald is okay.

My Scorecard: 10-9 Maia

MacDonald is complaining that Maia stuck his finger in his eye. No replay on that though.


The two walk right out to eachother and exchange, with Maia landing a nice hit and MacDonald pushing forward into the clinch. After rolling along the cage, Maia starts working some muay thai knees before they kinda stagger and fall to the ground, with Maia on top. Oh boy, Maia is in full mount.

MacDonald is bucking and half-rolling trying to get something going. Maia is starting to throw some solid elbows down. MacDonald survives and is looking fine. 2:30 left.

Maia tries for an arm triangle but nothing is there so he returns to throwing down elbows. They’re looking okay but he’s not gonna finish a fight with them. Win the round? Oh yeah. Stop the fight? Nah. Maia throwing throwing throwing. No real brutal damage being done.

MacDonald is scooting around on the underneath while trying to buck off Maia. He’s doing a decent job of avoiding blows and tying Maia up. He now manages to bump Maia up high and slip out between his legs. He leaves an arm behind but pulls it out seconds later, finishing the round on top of Maia.

My Scorecard: 10-9 Maia


MacDonald’s corner is telling him to knock Maia out. They know they’re down on the scorecard.

Maia immediately shoots and takes MacDonald down. MacDonald had a guillotine but it’s gone before it starts. He reverses Maia and is now on top. MacDonald maneuvers around working on passing. He’s better do something, he’s pissing this round away.

Oh, Maia gives up his back. MacDonald goes for a choke but Maia somehow manages to reverse and get into mount again. He’s throwing down strikes and MacDonald gives up his back. Maia’s got one arm under MacDonald’s neck and is just hammering Jason’s face with punches. With 2 minutes left he sinks in the RNC and gets MacDonald to tap.



Wow, they’re showing this fight early. I was expecting this to be co-main event. Guess they’re giving that shit to Lesnar / Herring.

Huerta comes out to a rousing samba tune. I feel like I’m at a mexican restaurant. Where’s the tortilla chips? Kenny Florian comes out wearing the most horrific yellow tracksuit, a la Kill Bill. I hope he’s getting paid well for that shit, because it’s embarassing. One More Round outdoes itself.

Bruce Buffer is gonna suffer some whiplash with his crazy ‘Buffer turn’. People are going bonkers for Huerta. They gotta stop showing hairy linebackers chewing cud.


Florian opens up with a leg kick. Huerta responds. This is a kicking battle thus far with each guy taking their turn. Kenny’s staying out the outside and moing backwards. Now Huerta goes for a kick and Florian suprises him with a hoot and takes him down. One hip movement later and Huerta is mounted with 3:20 left.

Huerta rolls over after one good strike. Klorian flattens him out and is now throwing decent strikes. Roger rolsl back over and forces himslf to his feet! Impressive. They seperate.

Again, Kenny staying on the outside and moving backwards whenever Huerta advances. Florian does a retarded hop into range thing and gets pummeled for it, Huerta knees an punches Kenny an rags him to the cage, peppering Florian with strikes. They seperate with a minute left.

Kenny clinches up again an they exchange knees before splitting, neither worse for wear. Kenny works on punches while Huerta works the legs with kicks. The horn sounds, round 1 is ovah

My scorecard: 10-9 Florian

UFC is doing a much better job than usual of getting what the corners are saying.


Huerta chases Florian with kicks and finally ties up, trying to bring Florian down. Florian leans against the cage and kills Huerta’s attempts to drag him down. They seperate. Florian again does his little retard jump tackle and eats a punch doing it. Now he’s trying to take Huerta down but Huerta grabs an arm working on a kimura.

That doesn’t work out for him and faster than you can say “Oh noes my jits!” Florian has Huerta’s back. But after 30 seconds Huerta slips out the backdoor and they’re up and standing again. Impressive. This isn’t a barn burner but it’s a very decent technical match.

Florian sweeps Huerta and Huerta lands on his ass. He manages to get back up before Kenny can capitalize. Huerta shoots in and eats a knee. He then fakes a superman punch and now ties them up. Florian locks up a good muay thai grip on Huerta’s head but doesn’t manage to do more than a few strikes before Huerta pulls out. With seconds running down they’re starting to let their hands go. The round ends with no one the worse for wear from the final exchanges

My Scorecard: 10-9 Florian

My scorecard: 10-9 Florian

Here’s the scores: All 3 score it 30-27 for Kenny Florian


They cut to a very fat looking BJ Penn, who does not look impressed.


Rob Emerson comes out to MIA’s Paper Planes. He’s pumped, high fiving people who don’t even want to be high fived. One guy flinches back when Emerson comes for him.


Manny taps gloves, no sucker punch this time. Wow, Emerson lands a KO punch that puts Manny on his back. Manny looks up just in time to eat another strike which KO’s him completely.

Lensar charges out with a flying knee Now he steps in with a huge punch that knocks Herring on his back. Herring rolls backwards onto his feet in time to be tackled by Lesnar.
