We all love a good scrap between two huge dudes, but one of these two competes as a light-heavyweight…
It’s been an insane weekend of mixed martial arts action. Two UFC Fight Night cards and Bellator 165 went down yesterday. Belfast and Brazil played host to the UFC action, but it’s not all about the major players.
People tend to forget that MMA is a global sport, and as such there are hundreds of promotions. Today we are going to take a look at a battle between two veterans of major promotions.
UFC Veteran Paul Buentello
Although he may be better remembered for his super-awkward post fight speech fail in the UFC, Paul Buentello is legit. Again, he may not be competing anywhere near the GOAT list, but this guy can punch really hard.
Facing a guy most likely remembered for finishing two fights with the same guy by groin kick, ‘The Headhunter’ took on Eric Prindle. Having fought in Bellator, Prindle was riding three straight wins from MFC and Pancrase going in to Abu Dhabi Warriors 4 this year.
Eric Prindle has to cut to make the heavyweight limit. This is a guy who just about gets to 264 or 265 on the scales. His opponent Paul Buentello is generally around 204-220 pounds, so pretty much a light-heavyweight.
When they met earlier this year, the result was one of the most crushing one punch knockouts you’ll ever see. Check out Prindle float through the air before crashing to the mat out cold.
Watch on the Youtube player below, the fight ending knockout is at the 1-minute mark:
There you have it. Paul Buentello, who has been fighting pro since 1997, can still put dudes to sleep with conviction. Thanks for stopping by to check out our site, make sure you check in again for more things fight related here at ScrapDigest.com
