Luiz Cane destroys Marshall with TKO win in UFC 128 Spike prelims

Saturday, March 19, 2011

Luiz Cane absolutely obliterated Eliot Marshall Saturday night at UFC 128, drilling him with a couple of big punches standing up in the early going and then finishing him off with dozens of punches on the ground.

Cane showed that he’s just a much better striker than Marshall, who never had much of a chance: Cane has power and accuracy with his punches, and Marshall doesn’t have much of anything in the stand-up for a striker of Cane’s caliber.

Edson Barboza capped a close victory over Anthony Njokuani with a highlight-reel kick in the final seconds of a good battle Saturday at UFC 128.

Barboza’s spinning back kick connected to Njokuani’s face with only a couple of seconds to go in the third and final round, and that highlight-reel kick may have been just enough to give the round and the fight to Barboza, who won 29-28 on all three judges’ cards.

The victory improved Barboza’s professional MMA record to 8-0. Njokuani improved to 13-4.
