UFC 69 middleweight bout: Kendall Grove (185.5 lbs) vs. Alan Belcher (184)
Kendall Grove -- a Team Punishment fighter -- walks to the Octagon wearing a mask over his mouth and nose. He also appears to have some new ink on his body. Big John McCarthy is the referee.
In the first round, Belcher scores the first takedown and gains side control. But Grove gets the fight back standing. Grove scores two straight kicks to Belcher's body and then scores a knee to his body. The action slows down a bit towards the end of the round. It's a close round. I give it to Grove for impressive activity over the last few minutes.
In the second round, Belcher attempts unsuccessfully to take Grove down and Grove ends up on top of Belcher with side control. Belcher is bleeding badly from his head. Back standing, Grove hurts Belcher with a kick and batters Belcher against the fence with knees and punches. Grove then body slams Belcher to the mat. On the mat, Grove gains side control and puts on a finishing choke to end the fight in the second round.
Belcher is asleep when the ref ends the fight.
Result: Kendall Grove wins by submission due to a D'Arce choke at 4:42 of the 2nd round.
