Yuta Kubo emerged as the winner of the drama-filled Featherweight Slam tournament at GLORY 8 TOKYO. The Peter Aerts and Jamal Ben Saddik fight is definitely a candidate for Fight of the Year as with youth and size on Ben Saddik’s side he was able to put Aerts down and nearly out in the first. But in the second round Aerts came out like a man possessed and staged one of the most remarkable comebacks in the sport’s history, scoring three knockdowns and winning by KO.
Chael Sonnen proved once again that trash talk doesn’t win titles, as Jon Jones made his fifth consecutive defense as he smashed Sonnen in round 1. Michael Bisping won a technical decision over Alan Belcher and Roy Nelson knocked out Cheick in the first round. Davis, Healy and Khabilov also left the Prudential Center victorious on Saturday night.
