super-sized JUAN ADAMS opened up this weeks DWTNCS with a vicious TKO win over SHAWN TEED. Heavyweights don’t normally need to cut weight. But Juan does and he just cleared at 266lbs; to go with his 6’5″ body and wild hair. He looks the part of what the UFC is looking for. Immediately he had Shawn back peddling as he “teed” off on him. On the ground Adams’s no novice. He rolled out of a heel hook attempt by Shawn, gaining top position. Juan tried to lock in a RNC to no avail and then reigned down GNP; forcing referee MARC SMITH to stop it at 4:17 into the opening round. JORDAN GRIFFIN and MAURICE MITCHELL opened up playing rock em sock em robot. Jordan connected with a left that put Maurice on the mat. Jordan quickly worked his way to get back control and locked in a RNC that Maurice tapped out to at 3:17 of round 1. LFA middleweight champion; IAN HEINISCH  improved to 11-1 after he wrecked JUSTIN SUMTER on the mat. Justin got a quick takedown but it led to a scramble with Ian gaining top control. He landed GNP as they moved to along the cage. With Justin’s head trapped; Ian blasted him with short elbows till he KO’d him 3:37 into the 1st round.

As is the case in many heavyweight fights; a hard pace slows quickly. That was what happened with  DON’TALE MAYES and MITCHELL SIPE. They traded leather early on stinging each other. As the pair became more tentative Don’tale sliced open a nasty cut on Mitchell thanks to a driving elbow. The 26 year old “KONG” then took the action to the ground. That’s when he unloaded some GNP and busted Sipe up more. With 11 seconds left in round 2 referee MARC SMITH stopped the fight.

Including his amateur record; ROOSEVELT ROBERTS is now 10-0 all via finishes ( 7 in the 1st round). This time he took out GARRETT GROSS 2:13 into round 2 by submission. The 24 year old also has a win in BELLATOR. He dominated Garrett in standup as well as on the mat. He attempted submissions from the opening horn and his striking was piston-like constantly finding a home. Eventually he was able to gain Gross’s back and locked in the tight RNC for the win.

Just a handful of times DANA WHITE has had to give 3 contracts. This time he went one better and handed out 4 UFC contracts. Picking them up were ROBERTS, HEINISCH, GRIFFIN, and ADAMS. In a way you have to feel for Mayes; who’s CURTIS BLAYDES’s training partner. He lost his 1st time on the show, dominated this time; well…. perhaps third time will be the charm.
