UFC 2013 Spring/Summer Events Preview

by

As the UFC schedule continues to roll along at breakneck speeds, MMA fans should be gearing up for an action-packed Spring-Early summer schedule as the world’s leading promotion has a number of events scheduled over the next few months. In this blog we’ll take a look at a schedule of the upcoming cards and highlight the fighters and fights to watch out for. Before we get started, I should point out the usual UFC disclaimer that all fight cards are scheduled to change, and if the past is any indication, there could be a number of these cards shuffled, main events scrapped or changed as fighters become injured.

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. Three Middleweight bouts are on the docket for the rest of the main card and many of them feature ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 2012-13 Winter Events Preview

by

Happy Holidays, CamelClutchBlog faithful.  I sincerely hope everyone enjoyed whatever holiday they may or may not have celebrated this year.  I don’t think there is a politically incorrect way (and if there is, please tell me) for me to address the arrival of 2013 so I’d like to start by wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year.

Speaking of healthy, I think we’d all like to wish a healthier 2013 for so many fighters who’ve been injured.  Yes, there is the purely selfish part of all of us who wants them healthier so they can entertain through this sport we love so much, but they obviously suffer from the lack of a paycheck.  Is GSP’s “Camp For Only One Fighter Like In Boxing” approach the answer, as Dana White recently mentioned? I have no idea.  If I knew how to stop fighter injuries, I feel like that information would be very valuable to promoters, gyms ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC On FX 3: Johnson Vs. McCall Predictions & Analysis

by

The UFC returns to the land of free television with two of the world’s top Flyweight fighters set to headline. The UFC returns to Southern Florida for the first time since 2007, as the UFC heads to the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. After a tabulation error caused their first bout to end in controversy, Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall will lock horns once again. Initially announced as a victory for Demetrious Johnson, at the post-fight press conference it was revealed that a math error was the culprit and the actual result of the bout was a Majority Draw.

Although somewhat lacking in big name talent, the card has a number of intriguing bouts. Not to mention the fact that Johnson vs. McCall has the potential to be an extremely exciting bout. The other bouts on the four fight main card on FX feature Erick Silva and Charlie Brenneman in ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 128: Shogun vs. Jones Predictions & Preview

by

Shogun Rua vs. Jon Jones headlines UFC 128To say it’s been a big week in the MMA world is a bit of an understatement. I mean, our very own editor and CamelClutchBlog overlord, Eric Gargiulo, got married! That is HUGE. That is way more important than Zuffa purchasing Strikeforce and creating a virtual monopoly on the sport’s landscape (in all seriousness, EG, congrats to you and the new Mrs. in case some of my sarcasm was lost).

Love them or hate them, you have to give Zuffa/UFC credit: a mere week before a huge PPV that pits your rising star against a revered veteran champion, you drop the biggest news the sport has seen in quite some time. In the process, you create a lot of headlines and leverage since, not-so-coincidentally, this event is also ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
