UFC Fight Night London LIVE: Silva vs Bisping

    2/27/2016 6:14:50 PM
    Hello! Welcome to the UFC London live blog, we've just seen David Teymur dispatch of fellow Swede Martin Svensson in dominating fashion with a second round TKO. Up next it's Teemu Packelan vs Thibault Gouti
    2/27/2016 6:04:16 PM
    Round 1: And it's over! Teemu Packelan with the quick submission victory after a swift punch lands and puts Gouti on the floor, whom then gives up his back leading to a guillotine choke
    2/27/2016 6:07:29 PM
    Dan Hardy asks Packelan if he expected the fight to go longer, "of course!"
    2/27/2016 6:09:01 PM
    Two heavyweight giants up next: Daniel Omielanczuk vs Jarjis Danho, if I manage to spell both those names right in every update, that's a win.
    2/27/2016 6:13:14 PM
    Both fighters throwing BOMBS early
    2/27/2016 6:21:21 PM
    Both fighters look exhausted against the cage, the referee steps in and seperates
    2/27/2016 6:24:18 PM
    Round Two: Much slower than the first, Omielanczuk still attempting the odd high kick, and big overhands, but nothing landing
    2/27/2016 6:28:32 PM
    Danho hasn't thrown anything for at least 30 seconds, breathing heavily, might be using this round to regroup ahead of a big finish
    2/27/2016 6:30:00 PM
    Danho falls to the ground for seemingly no reason at all, he just looks exhausted
    2/27/2016 6:31:00 PM
    Omielanczuk commits a stupid error and knees his opponent to the head while Danho's hand was on the ground
    2/27/2016 6:31:31 PM
    Second round comes to a close, Danho ran from his opponent towards the end, needs a big final round
    2/27/2016 6:33:42 PM
    OMielanczuk catches Danho with a low left hook, Danho goes down hard and the ref calls time out
    2/27/2016 6:36:30 PM
    Doctor has been called, Danho might need a count up
    2/27/2016 6:37:27 PM
    Danho is right in front of me near the press section, he looks unwilling to carry on
    2/27/2016 6:37:41 PM
    The fight has been called off over a low blow!
    2/27/2016 6:37:52 PM
    We're waiting to see whether or not the fight has been ruled a DQ, all very confusing here at cage-side
    2/27/2016 6:39:16 PM
    The blow was deemed accidental, and we go to the scorecards
    2/27/2016 6:41:21 PM
    Daniel Omielanczuk wins by decision
    2/27/2016 6:41:31 PM
    Khabilov 'answering the telephone' to stop Parke from getting the choke, Parke in no rush, knows he has plenty of time to get the submission
    2/27/2016 7:02:52 PM
    Khabilov manages to work his way out of the hold and turns the tide, landing in Parke's guard
    2/27/2016 7:03:35 PM
    Parke trying desperately to get up but Khabilov is relentless with the pressure
    2/27/2016 7:05:10 PM
    Khabilov wins the fight by unanimous decision, late dominance in the third was probably enough to seal it
    2/27/2016 7:07:38 PM
    Up next it's Bradley Scott vs Krzysztof Jotko
    2/27/2016 7:10:11 PM
    Both fighters happy to keep the fight standing early on
    2/27/2016 7:14:31 PM
    Scott controlling the centre of the cage and stalking Jotko, but the Englishman''s nose is busted open early
    2/27/2016 7:16:34 PM
    30 seconds to go and Scott continues to have the better of the exchanges with Jotko seemingly happy to stay on the outside
    2/27/2016 7:18:24 PM
    Round 2: after a good first round for Scott, he continues to control the centre, and ties up Jotko early on
    2/27/2016 7:20:42 PM
    Jotko looks to take the initiative and has Scott against the cage, landing savage knees. Scott spins and separates
    2/27/2016 7:22:40 PM
    JOtko tries to throw some flashy punches and elbow but not much lands at the close of the second round
    2/27/2016 7:24:44 PM
    Jotko goes over to his corner and balls up, looking exhausted as his coaches try to rally him for the third.
    2/27/2016 7:25:19 PM
    Third starts and both fighters land some flurries early, before settling back into the familiar rhythm of Scott controlling the Octagon
    2/27/2016 7:27:12 PM
    Jotko is DESPERATE to land an elbow on Scott, a collision leads to Scott on his back
    2/27/2016 7:29:56 PM
    Scott tries to get up but is quickly thrown by Jotko whom lands in side control before being pulled back into guard
    2/27/2016 7:30:24 PM
    Fight ends with Jotko standing over Scott and throwing down punches, both fighters will be confident of a win, let's see what the judges think...
    2/27/2016 7:31:30 PM
    Jotko wins by unanimous decision, with one judge scoring the bout 30-27. Harsh on Scott, in my opinion
    2/27/2016 7:32:44 PM
    Arnold Allen vs Yoatzin Meza next
    2/27/2016 7:33:22 PM
    Meza lands a straight right and is hitting home with some solid low leg kicks on Allen
    2/27/2016 7:36:52 PM
    Meza has Allen tied up against the cage right in front of us, Allen hasn't really got going yet
    2/27/2016 7:38:34 PM
    I must have jinxed it, Allen turns Meza and scores the first takedown
    2/27/2016 7:39:03 PM
    The fight gets stood up (absurdly) and now Allen appears much more confident, only ten seconds left of the first, though
    2/27/2016 7:40:54 PM
    Crowd cheers as the monitor shows Bisping arriving, guy in the front row thinks the cheers are for him...they're not
    2/27/2016 7:42:01 PM
    Just seen that Benson Henderson is Meza's coach, that must be where all the positivity is coming from within his corner
    2/27/2016 7:42:55 PM
    Round 2 and Allen controls the centre of the cage while Meza circles, eerily similar to the previous fight. Shots thrown in isolation, no combinations
    2/27/2016 7:45:53 PM
    Meza goes down complaining of an eye poke, replay shows he did take one as Allen defended the takedown
    2/27/2016 7:46:27 PM
