Hamman vs. Philippou Wiki Update Wiki

The sixth bout of UFC 140 featured Jared Hamman taking on Constantinos Philippou in the middleweight division.


Philippou landed some good strikes in the early exchanges of the fight. Philippou countered a leg kick with a big right hand, sending Hamman crashing backwards badly wobbled. Philippou attacked forward, looked briefly for a choke, and Hamman escaped back to his feet. Hamman ate another monster punch and again was in deep trouble. Referee John McCarthy watched closely as Hamman stumbled up to his feet, was nailed with one more punch, and the fight was called.


The official end came at 3:11 of the first round for the knockout victory for Philippou. Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Philippou commented, "It was about time, this is it, this is who I am and I belong here... that's all Ray Longo right there, we've been practicing that for the past two months... this is the best day of my life."
