UFC 155 Dos Santos Vs. Velasquez Results and Wrap Up

by

The UFC made its return to the land of Pay Per View last night and although some fights left fans wanting a bit more, the other bouts were loaded with action that more than made up for it. If you were unable to see some of the undercard bouts, I highly suggest you try to do so by any means possible. Melvin Guillard versus Jamie Varner, while slightly slower than expected was an entertaining bout. As well the Featherweight tilt between Leonard Garcia and Max Holloway was a highly entertaining slugfest that went for a full fifteen minutes. Add in impressive TKO victories for Heavyweight Todd Duffee and Bantamweight Erik Perez and there is some top shelf violence for those of you that like it that way.

Moving on to the main card, some of the bouts didn’t quite live up to the hype. Others such as the co-main event between ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 155 Results: Cain Velasquez Regains UFC Title

by

Cain Velasquez is an animal! Velasquez mauled Junior Dos Santos in their UFC 155 rematch proving to the MMA world that his 64 second loss to the JDS was a fluke. Velasquez won a unanimous decision to regain the UFC heavyweight title in one of the most one-sided UFC title wins in years.

Dos Santos could not stop the shot. Velasquez dominated the former champion on their feet and taking him to the ground. Velasquez had his way with Dos Santos at UFC 155, absorbing very little to punishment at all from the champion. UFC commentator Jor Rogan proclaimed at one point that he had not seen such a dominant performance by a challenger over a champion since Anderson Silva defeated Rich Franklin for the middleweight title several years ago.

Velasquez opened up looking to strike and takedown the former champion. Dos Santos did a good job early on of avoiding any ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 155 Dos Santos Vs. Velasquez 2 Predictions & Analysis

by

The UFC returns to the land of Pay Per View this weekend with their traditional New Year’s Eve card. Despite not technically taking place on New Year’s Eve, the UFC has more than made up for it by packing this card with talent and intriguing match-ups from top to bottom. Headlining the card is a rematch that everyone has been clamoring for since their first meeting as the headliner for the UFC’s first event on the Fox Network as UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos battles the man he defeated for the title Cain Velasquez.

The co-main event of the evening features a Lightweight tilt that will move the winner significantly up the ladder in terms of placement in what is arguably the UFC’s deepest division as Joe Lauzon battles Jim Miller.

UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit Winners and Wrap Up

by

UFC 154 has come and gone and admittedly things didn’t go exactly as I predicted they might. Such is often the case with MMA though, as it’s one of the toughest sports to predict. But luckily for me there’s another card in only a few short weeks and another chance to right the ship of my predictions. And for the fighters that competed on the main card there’s always looking forward to their next bouts. Let’s take a look at what happened and who they should be battling inside the octagon next.

First a couple of notes about the undercard fighters. A bout between Middleweight fighters Nick Ring and Costa Philippou was scheduled for the main card, but was called off at the last minute due to an illness to Ring and him being deemed unfit to fight by UFC doctors. A rematch between the two is expected to take place ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit Results – GSP Retains In Thriller

by

The question going into UFC 154 was whether a 19-month layoff would hamper Georges St-Pierre. The UFC welterweight champion answered that with a thrilling victory over Carlos Condit. Now the question is whether GSP will continue to defend the championship or accept the challenge of Anderson Silva.

A rabid Montreal crowd welcomed back George St-Pierre at UFC 154. GSP pushed forward early with strikes. GSP swung for the fences a few times with no luck early. GSP got the first takedown. Georges got into half guard in the final two minutes-plus and dropped a few strikes. Condit tried going for the arm bar with no luck. GSP really pushed the pace here with strikes. Georges dominated the first round with the bell ringing with GSP on top. Condit was cut really bad from an elbow.

St-Pierre nailed Condit with a right hand at around 3:58. Joe Rogan pointed out right about here ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 148 Silva Vs. Sonnen II Results – Silva Stops Sonnen In Round 2

by

Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen had the improbable task of living up to two years of hype in 25 minutes at UFC 148. Remarkably they did just that in close to 7 minutes of intense action which saw a costly mistake result in a victory for Anderson “The Spider” Silva.

The first round started off where the fifth round left off of their UFC 117 fight. Silva came out looking to stand and Sonnen took him right down. Unlike their first fight, Sonnen was held at bay on the ground by Silva. Silva held Sonnen in the half-guard for the majority of the round, locking up Sonnen’s leg, preventing him from advancing or teeing off. Sonnen eventually got free and got a full mount on the champion in the final minute. Sonnen controlled the action as the round ended. It appeared that this was Sonnen’s fight to lose going into Round ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 148 Silva Vs. Sonnen II Main Card Predictions & Analysis

by

One of the biggest grudge matches in UFC history goes down this weekend as the UFC returns to the world of Pay Per View for UFC 148.

There have been some notable grudge matches before; Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir, Urijah Faber vs. Dominick Cruz and Rashad Evans vs. Jon Jones all come to mind, but this one may be the biggest of them all as Anderson Silva once again defends his Middleweight title against Chael Sonnen. That championship bout caps off what was once an amazingly stacked card, but has been hampered by injury problems. Still the main card features a number of big names and a few intriguing match-ups and if there’s one thing that we’ve learned in the past, it’s that grudge matches do big business for the UFC anyways.

As mentioned the card is headlined by a UFC Middleweight Title Bout between champion Silva and challenger Sonnen. The ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 133: Evans Vs. Ortiz Results – Rashad Wins Via TKO, Belfort KO’s Akiyama

by

Rashad Evans vs. Tito Ortiz picked up right where they left off four years ago with an exciting UFC 133 main-event. Ortiz put in a valiant effort after taking the fight on short notice, but he was no match for Evans in Philadelphia.

They opened up tentative, feeling each other out in the early moments. Ortiz went for takedowns and took down Evans during the first round. He wasn’t able to hold him long and Evans came up swinging. The two broke out into a wild slugfest, with Tito coming out on the losing end of the stick. Evans trapped Ortiz against the cage at one point but was unable to finish. The round ended with Evans dropping down strikes on a fallen Ortiz.

The second round started with both fighters circling looking for position. Evans finally charged but ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 133: Evans Vs. Ortiz Betting Analysis & Predictions

by

UFC 133 is set to air this Saturday night, live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This might be one of the most injury-plagued cards that the UFC has seen in a long time. What was once a stellar fight card has been bitten several times by the injury bug and has caused a number of fight changes or cancellations.

Just to punish ourselves about what might have been, let’s take a look at some of the fights that we are no longer seeing on Saturday night, before we get into the ones that we will see. Let’s start at the top, the original Main Event of this card was set to feature Rashad Evans challenging new Light Heavyweight Champion Jon “Bones” Jones for the title, however, a ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 133: Evans Vs. Ortiz Preview & Predictions

UFC 133: Jones vs. Evans, I mean Evans vs. Davis, I mean Evans vs. Ortiz

This Saturday’s UFC 133 card has gone through some major revisions as you can see by my sarcastic headline, but I’m in a positive mood today so I should point out the following: I like Phil Davis and think he’s a future title contender in the division, but Tito Ortiz versus Rashad Evans is an improvement to the headliner, especially given Tito’s recent upset over Ryan Bader. Even with the litany of other injuries (Lil Nog, Vladimir Matyushenko, Alessio Sakara, Riki Fukuda), the Philly crowd will still be ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
