In a meeting between two of Bellator's more exciting fighters, it was David Rickels that got the better of Lloyd Woodard to the tune of an unanimous decision win in the main event of Bellator 87 on Thursday night.

Woodard did not go down without a fight, however. The Montana native took control early on with an early slam and a mix of ground and pound and submission attempts from top position.

Demetrious Johnson successfully defended his UFC flyweight title on Saturday night, but took all he could handle from prepared challenger John Dodson in the main event of Saturday night's UFC on FOX 6.

"I got dazed a little bit," Johnson said after the fight. "It's going to happen. It's like swimming, you're gonna get splashed. I'm going to get hit."

Despite displaying a crafty ground game and an effective arsenal of punches and kicks, Hatsu Hioki came out on the losing end of a split decision to Clay Guida in the featured bout during the UFC on FOX 6 prelims on Saturday night.

The crowd inside of Chicago's United Center was clearly behind their native son in Guida, but "The Carpenter" drew scattered boos over the course of three rounds due to a stagnant offense, which saw Guida controlling Hioki on the ground, but not offering much in terms of punishment.

Hioki took the the first round on two of the judge's scorecards by making Guida miss on the feet, while scoring with a barrage of punches, kicks and knees. The second stanza saw Guida turn the tide with some hard leg kicks and a huge slam that put Hioki on his back for the majority of the round. The Japanese veteran still managed to keep things close however courtesy of a couple of submission attempts and a head kick that landed flush as the round closed.

Ben Askren is evolving.

On a night that many expected Askren's smothering top position and submissions to do Karl Amoussou in, it was Askren's new ground-and-pound that put away the Frenchman in his latest Bellator welterweight title defense in the main event of Bellator 86 on Thursday night at the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma.

The Daily Recap: Price Demands, Hendricks Staying Put & More

Last week on MMA Fighting’s “The MMA Beat”, Mike Straka stated that he's heard through sources that Georges St. Pierre is requesting $50 million to fight Anderson Silva. Straka said, “I was told by somebody very close to Georges that Georges today makes close to $8 million a fight. So to fight Anderson Silva he’s going to ask for $50 million.”

St. Pierre, who is currently in Paris, France, joined 98.5 FM Sports and shot down the report saying it was not true.

Johny Hendricks recently told MMA Junkie Radio that he has no intentions of risking his status as the number one contender for the UFC welterweight title. Hendricks said, “I’m not going to fight unless it’s for a belt. Nothing else matters but the belt.”

It’ll be interesting to see how the UFC handles the current welterweight title picture. Will it be the lesser known yet more deserving Hendricks or the outspoken and brash Nick Diaz?
