TSN 2 MAIN CARD 

“STORMIN'” NORMAN PARKE VS GLEISON TIBAU

WISEMAN PREDICTION: GLEISON TIBAU VIA UNANIMOUS DECISION

WINNER: GLEISON TIBAU VIA SPLIT-DECISION (28-29,29-28,29-28)

Wiseman: Tibau continued to grow as a mixed martial artist. Parke was expected to have an edge in the striking department, but tonight Tibau showed that he is not someone you want to mess around with in that department either. Parke showed good striking, but Tibau put together his own combinations with more power. The takedowns and grappling in the second showed the power of Tibau. Parke showed technique, but just not able to show brute force to measure up to Tibau.

“PRIMETIME” URIAH HALL VS RON “CHOIRBOY” STALLINGS

WISEMAN PREDICTION: URIAH HALL VIA TKO

WINNER: URIAH HALL VIA FIRST ROUND TKO (DOCTOR’S STOPPAGE) 3:37

Wiseman: Stallings threw great kicks, had Hall circling around the cage, but it only took one clear right by Hall to rock Stallings. Hall pounced with vicious ground-and-pound, sliced open Stallings’ face and received a doctor stoppage for the win. Hall is just such a precise deadly striker. However, props to Stallings for taking this fight on five days notice and from what I saw, will be a challenge in the division when he has a full training camp.

#3 DONALD “COWBOY” CERRONE VS #5 “SMOOTH” BENSON HENDERSON

WISEMAN PREDICTION: DONALD CERRONE VIA UNANIMOUS DECISION

WINNER: DONALD CERRONE VIA UNANIMOUS DECISION (29-28,29-28,29-28)

Wiseman: Henderson came out tonight using kicks like they were going out of style. The front side kick he threw continuously throughout the fight, jabs to the thigh, and mixing up levels. Cerrone owned the center of the octagon throughout the fight and pressed forward more with his precision striking. Cerrone scored a few takedowns in the second and third which is what gave him the decision win. Great fight!

MAIN EVENT

#5 “NOTORIOUS” CONOR MCGREGOR VS #10 DENNIS SIVER

 WISEMAN PREDICTION: CONOR MCGREGOR VIA TKO

WINNER: CONOR MCGREGOR VIA SECOND ROUND TKO 1:54

Wiseman: The first round had McGregor making it look simple against Siver. His kicks and precision striking busted open Siver and kept him circling around the octagon from McGregor. The second round had McGregor pressing forward, but mounting Siver for the ground-and-pound finish. Connor, as per usual, couldn’t stop at the finish. He had to jump out of the cage and go after Aldo. It’s going to be a great fight!
