Rich Franklin could take a note from Day’s response to the clinch. Good fight.

thanks for posting this fight

gotta be happy for jason day, the guys been travelling around canada for years, and does awesome when he gets his shot in the ufc

Excellent Stoppage!

That was absolutely amazing work on the ground by Jason Day. Belcher had to be sorry he ever got the take down. I have not seen someone so completely own from bottom position with strikes for a very long time.

Also… that is what you get for wearing the gay trunks. If you are going to wear that crap you better Fing bring it.

KieranMac Says, in 4-22-2008 at 12:34:15 from    

Day brought it big time, Belcher was completely outclassed on the ground. He got crushed in the one area of his game he’s supposed to dominate.

I can’t believe that they did not show that fight on the PPV!!!!!!!!!! I also can’t believe that he didn’t get knockout of the night!!!!!! I just became a fan of Jason Day.

thats embrassing for belcher.. got beat in his own game.. that elbow finished him.. i though belcher would dominate the stand up.. but nope..(guess that fight against kalib made him look alot better :D) day dominated this fight.. belcher didnt have a chance

The refing in canada sucks

Brandon Says, in 4-22-2008 at 15:24:34 from    

I thought most thai kick boxers use that style of trunks , I also remember seeing Melvin Manhoef wearing that style and I’m sure he isn’t gay.

Either way great fight for Day awesome work on the ground and the feet and he should poise considering it was his UFC debut.

“The refing in Canada sucks.” – AJK07

lol @ that. Those are the same group of refs that work all the domestic promotions that the UFC, WEC, EliteXC, ect. That Canadian air really f**** with their heads.

I don’t have any problem with that fight getting stopped when it did. Belcher was done.


That was an impressive showing for Day. He looked good with his rubber guard and the stand up was crisp as well. I’ll be looking forward to seeing him fight again.

No Name Says, in 4-22-2008 at 17:37:15 from    

Nice call that guy was getting beat!

TriGGz Says, in 4-22-2008 at 18:12:42 from    

wow AJK you are a tool its the same refs that ref in the US too….. I live about 3 hours away from lethbridge where jason day trains, great fight for him, look forward to seeing him some more he was very impressive!

GREENMACHINE Says, in 4-22-2008 at 19:16:34 from    

The UFC provides the refs. It has nothing to do with the fact that it was in Canada.

“I thought most thai kick boxers use that style of trunks , I also remember seeing Melvin Manhoef wearing that style and I’m sure he isn’t gay.”

Brandon, true enough that many Muy Thai kickboxers wear that type of trunk, but they don’t make it bright green and frilly. When guys like Manhoef and Kevin Randleman wear it, it’s usually leather and at least attempts to look like the gladiator shorts that they’re modeled after.

Belcher’s trunks looked like they were designed by a drunken gay leprechaun.

BakaSurvivor Says, in 4-22-2008 at 23:17:46 from    

That was a ton of damage from the rubber guard.

Hopefully Bisping gets either Cote or Day next. Day looked pretty solid in his ufc debut.

A Says, in 4-23-2008 at 00:01:53 from    

I hate it when they stop the fights like this; they even made a mess out of the GSP Serra fight.

THAY GUY Says, in 4-23-2008 at 02:24:15 from    

that was crazy. Great fight. Eddie Bravo should be proud!

Dogg Says, in 4-23-2008 at 09:39:02 from    

Lets not get homophobic here. The trunks just looked s***! Nuff said!

WINDSOR MMA Says, in 4-23-2008 at 18:57:30 from    

A what the F*** are you talkin about Serra was gettgin owned on the ground and wasnt defending the knees to the body plus he looked up at the ref i bet he said im a little bitch stop it please!!!!

Drew Says, in 4-23-2008 at 19:47:01 from    

Impressive performance by Day. He slides right in the mix with that win and replaces Starnes. Belcher just couldn’t get it going. He never seemed to recover from those blows inside Day’s guard.

c4 Says, in 4-23-2008 at 20:33:01 from    

whats up with the new annoucer?

smack Says, in 4-23-2008 at 21:12:39 from    

im gonna just start boycoting the f****** ufc if they dont start letting there fights actually f****** finish he was protecting himself he wasnt that hurt he was moving well WHY THE F*** DID THEY STOP THE FIGHT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

G Lowe Says, in 4-23-2008 at 22:50:15 from    

Nice fight Jay. They should have put it on pay per view, for your Lethbridge fans. Good elbow work – great energy on the finish.

AuSteve Says, in 4-24-2008 at 06:03:30 from    

good to see some standing elbows, dont see enuf of em.

Cazador Says, in 4-24-2008 at 18:31:35 from    

SMACK – Yeah, I totally agree. I mean, it’s not like Belcher just took it straight for an entire round, and couldn’t even side-step to avoid the raining of punches. UFC will miss you and your sharp wit. AK up there…you too. Wow. Totally unreasonable. Let’s encourage these Refs to let people die in the ring, so that the sport can get demonized and banned outside of Asia. It’s tools like you guys that give fighting bad representation. We – as a culture – haven’t digressed into the Roman gladiator days just yet, but I’m sure someone will let you know when it’s time to do the ol’ thumbs-up/thumbs-down.

Now, as for my response for the fight…

Alan Belcher just learned a lesson in sportsmanship. He clearly let his head get too big after his win over Kalib Starnes. Hopefully, just hopefully – with this impressive TKO by Day – he’ll think twice before coming into the octagon with anything other than good training and respect for his opponents. And, as for the Ref’s decision…if it’ll keep fights coming (to Canada, and PPV from the UFC, without any sort of over-dramatized flak), I’ll gladly see a few end abruptly.

Jazzy Jessen SR Says, in 4-24-2008 at 22:29:57 from    

Awesome fight Jay Day…wish it was live on PPV..big daddy Lee was pumped as were lots of people here at the Fort!! Keep up the great work and press forward all the way..all the best!!! Jazzy (the best v-ball coach you ever had!!)

Mike Says, in 4-25-2008 at 02:58:09 from    

Good stoppage, Belcher was a sitting duck against the fench. He was getting tee’d off on without anything coming back in return. He was rocked with an elbow and it was down hill from there. Never saw any of Belcher’s previous fights but he looked like an amateur here.

LAZER212 Says, in 4-25-2008 at 11:35:16 from    

Great standing elbows in the clinch, that was the begining of the end for Belcher.

Sarah Says, in 5-15-2008 at 21:24:55 from

Good luck in England
