UFC 109: Relentless LIVE Play-by-Play Commentary, Results and Discussion

Ultimate Fighting Championship will return to the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada to present a full of legends UFC 109: Relentless.

Former UFC Welterweight Champion Matt “The Terror” Serra will open the main card against Frank Trigg, who fought twice for the UFC Welterweight crown. Both Fighters will look to establish themselves in The UFC, as the loser will probably get cut from the promotion.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Demian Maia will look to rebound from his embarrassing loss to Nate Marquardt at UFC 102, against Dan Miller who comes to this fight as a slight underdog. Dan Miller is a legit Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt himself, but the AMA Fight Club product knows that in order to defeat Maia you have to test his chin.

American Kickboxing Academy prospect Mike “Quick” Swick and Paulo Thiago will go to war against each other in a very entertaining fight on the paper. Paulo Thiago is 11-1, with his only loss coming by the hands of Swick’s teammate Jon Fitch at UFC 100.

Co-main event of the evening will feature Nate “The Great” Marquardt who will face the loudmouth Chael Sonnen. Marquardt will look for an impressive victory to make a statement that he is “Anderson Silva worthy”, as Sonnen will try to show that talking about Anderson Silva’s pink shirt is not the only thing he can do. Sonnen proved he is a character during the recent days, and an impressive victory over Marquardt can produce a very entertaining fight against “The Spider” Silva.

Finally, with a combined age of 91 years, two UFC Hall of Famers Randy “The Natural” Couture and Mark “The Hammer” Coleman will go to war against each other. Coleman and Couture have 27 years of Mixed Martial Arts experience, and 8 titles between them. While many people have doubt in the abilities of these legends to go toe-to-toe with today’s Light Heavyweight prospects, this bout still promises a lot of entertainment. Randy Couture is still a huge draw in Ultimate Fighting Championship, what according to the reports, could get him a shot at the Light Heavyweight title if he impressively beats Mark “The Hammer” Coleman.

Matt Serra def. Frank Trigg via TKO
Round 1: Fight starts with Matt Serra measuring up Trigg’s distance. Serra swings in attempt to catch Trigg, but “Twinkle Toes” seems to be relaxed. Serra lands some body shots, but nothing serious that could trouble Frank Trigg. Serra is measuring…. and finally lands a devastating combo of his famous overhand right and uppercuts that rock Trigg and earn “The Terror” a victory via TKO 2:20 minutes into the very First Round. I feel sorry for Frank Trigg.
Demian Maia def. Dan Miller via Unanimous Decision
Round 1: Miller looks bigger than Demian Maia, who is not too desperate to take this fight to the ground. Dan Miller goes into a quick clinch to land a good knee and jab, Maia tries to respond with combo of his own, but Miller manages to dodge these attempts. Maia finally attempts a takedown. but Miller who is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt himself, survives this attempt. The American looks like a much better striker, with cross and jab attempts which disturb Maia, who pushes Miller to the fence and langs an illegal knee to the groin. Miller looks hurt and the referee gives him time to recover. Maia is not as dangerous as Miller, but looks to have a more effective gameplan. 10-9 to Maia at the end of the First Round.
Round 2: Second round begins with no take down attempts from Maia. Dan Miller’s looks crisp, as he disturbs the Brazilian with jabs and short combinations. Maia is going to lose a decision without takedowns and submission attempts. Miller continues his work with lowkicks and a good Octagon Control, keeps good distance from Demian Maia and looks relaxed. Wonderful round for Dan Miller who earns a 10-9 score from LowKick.
Round 3: Final round begins with a more aggressive Maia who tries his best to catch Dan Miller. Miller somehow rocks Maia with a kick, but the Brazilian manages to achieve a good takedown. Maia works his way with an effective Ground-and-Pound; Dan Miller looks very frustrated as he attempts to stand up. It is Demian Maia’s turf here; he completely dominates bloodied Miller on the ground. Dan Miller in desperate attempt to pull a submission, but it is Demian Maia’s round, who gets a 10-9 score. We might have a Split Decision here…. No. It is a Unanimous Decision victory for Demian Maia (30-27, 29-28, 29-28).
Paulo Thiago def. Mike Swick via Submission (Anaconda Choke)
Round 1: They touch gloves quickly, and the fight is underway. Paulo Thiago gets the center of The Octagon with Swick moving around. Swick has a reasonable 3 inch advantage that might help him if this fight will become a slugfest. Careful approach by both fighters, but Thiago catches Swick with a good legkick-jab combo that stuns “Quick” for a split second. Swick looks more aggressive now, but it is again a devastating legkick that disturbs the American. Paulo Thiago looks very good in this fight, with a relaxed and cautious approach that frustrates Mike Swick who works well with his left hand, but without contact just yet. Thirty-two seconds to the end of the round Swick manages to takedown Thiago, without much damage via Ground-and-Pound. Good round. 10-9 for the Brazilian.
Round 2: Second round begins with a good pace, Swick looks very aggressive with fast combos and a clear Octagon Control. Paulo Thiago is not impressed and sticks to his effective gameplan. Swick continues his pressure, but Paulo Thiago counters with powerful shots that rock Mike Swick! Decorated BJJ Black Belt attempts a quick submission and sends “Quick” Swick to sleep via Anaconda Choke at 1:55 minutes of the Second Round.
Chael Sonnen def. Nate Marquardt via Unanimous Decision
Round 1: Fight starts with Marquardt trying kicks. “The Great” is a much better striker and Chael Sonnen understand that….We are going to have a very fast pace here. Sonnen pushes Marquardt to the fence and manages to take down the number one contender. Devastating elbows by Chael Sonnen, Marquardt looks clueless on the ground. Like it or not, Chael Sonnen is leading this round. Bloodied Marquardt manages to stand-up and tries a flying knee; Sonnen is stick to his gameplan and takes the Greg Jackson product to the ground once again. Marquardt is bleeding from his nose and looks hurt. Chael Sonnen d-o-m-i-n-a-t-e-s! Elbows, punches; vicious Ground-and-Pound game. First Round ends, and it is a clear 10-9 for Sonnen, if not 10-8.
Round 2: Sonnen takes down Nate Marquardt at will. “King of Pancrase” tries a submission, as he is taking a constant punishment with Sonnen on top. Desperate Marquardt looks just too heavy to get up, he knows that Sonnen is leading the fight. Marquardt cuts Sonnen with an elbow, but the loudmouth gets up and lands some vicious shots from side-control. Nate Marquardt gives up his back in desparation, it might end here…. Blood is pouring out of Sonnen’s head. Nate Marquardt just cannot improve his position; Sonnen takes him down too easily. Another good round for Chael Sonnen who is very close for an upset. 10-9 Sonnen.
Round 3: Chael Sonnen is just one round away from meeting Anderson Silva or Vitor Belfort. Marquardt is simply unable to defend himself. Chael Sonnen improves his position to half-guard after punishing Nate Marquardt on the ground. Sonnen is seriously cut with blood all over The Octagon. Marquardt manages to get up for the first time in three rounds. Sonnen takes him down but “Nate The Great” counters with a Guillotine Choke…. he holds it tight but seems to be exhausted. Sonnen escapes. Marquardt is desperate in the dying seconds of the fight. He gives everything he has, but Chael Sonnen will get the victory as he manages to survive the onslaught. 10-9 to Sonnen once again, we are going to have a Unanimous Decision here… 30-27, 30-27, 30-27 Chael Sonnen. WOW!
Main Event : Randy Couture def. Mark Coleman via Submission (Rear Naked Choke)
Round 1: They were supposed to fight at UFC 17, but now it is the main event of UFC 109: Relentless as these two Legends go to war against each other. Couture looks very good on feet; Coleman is just too slow to dodge his jab. Couture connects with his jabs very well as the applause of the Las Vegas crowd. No ground game meanwhile; Coleman looks too slow for “The Natural” who seems to be in a very good shape. Couture lands very good punches and knees as Mark Coleman pulls the clinch at the fence. No striking or whatsoever from Mark “The Hammer” Coleman meanwhile; Couture completely controls this fight with an effective striking and now a good clinch game. First Round ends with Coleman slightly bloodied from his lip. Randy Couture is in full control, clear 10-9 Round for “The Natural”.
Round 2: Mark Coleman looks clueless against Randy Couture who is simply in a better shape at his advanced age. Couture pushes coleman to the fence, and manages to get a fantastic takedown from a Greco-Roman clinch. Mark Coleman gives up his back as Couture punishes him on the ground. Couture sees an opportunity and he takes it; Strong Rear Naked Choke that sends Mark “The Hammer” Coleman to sleep at 1:09 seconds of the Second Round. Good performance by Captain America.

    Nice to see these two finally fight but I wish it would have happened 13 years ago but it was great to see Randy put Coleman to sleep. Chael beat Nate but you all still forget that Anderson still has to fight Vitor and in my opinion Vitor is gonna walk away from that fight with the win. Nate is still great but I think Sonnen still did a great job of showing him up. WOW to Serra clubbing Trigg. He smoked dude bad lol. Paulo is going to be someone to be reconed with in the future for sure. Good card over all.
