UFC 159: Jones Vs. Sonnen Results and Wrap Up

by

The fight has come and gone, and at the end of the day it appears as though the Light Heavyweight title fight between Chael Sonnen and Jon Jones was indeed the mismatch that so many people thought it would be. The rest of the card was a mixed bag, including some highly entertaining bouts, some thoroughly lackluster bouts and a few controversial stoppages mixed with borderline terrible officiating in some cases. Let’s take a look back at the card that was UFC 159 and see what’s next for the main card fighters involved.

Lightweight Bout: Pat Healy defeated Jim Miller via Submission (Rear Naked Choke) at 4:02 of Round Three

The opening round of this bout went almost exactly as most people (including the bookies) expected it to. Miller dominated much of the action both standing and on the ground, in fact he came close to stopping the fight at one point. ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 159: Jones Vs. Sonnen Predictions and Analysis

by

It’s been an exciting couple of weeks with loads of free fights for fans to sink their teeth into. But all of those free shows come with the knowledge that eventually it’s back to the land of Pay Per View where the UFC saves the really big marquee matches.

Top 20 MMA Fights Of 2012

by

2012 was a mixed year for Mixed Martial Arts on the biggest stages. There were some major highs and some serious lows. Let’s start with the highs which included the emergence of several big name MMA promotions including One FC in Asia and the World Series of Fighting in the USA. Other highs included the addition of Women’s MMA to the UFC as the women will finally get their chance to shine on the world’s biggest stage for fighting, and they owe a lot of that to the work of all-female fight promotion Invicta FC. Georges St. Pierre, the UFC’s king of Pay Per View made his long awaited return from injury in a classic bout against Carlos Condit, the addition of the UFC’s Flyweight division has yet to put out a boring fight and the UFC’s deal with Fox continues to prove a strong move for both the UFC ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

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 , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Nate Diaz Shines At UFC On FOX 3

by

Nate DiazThere are those special moments when a star is born and for Nate Diaz, his star was born on Saturday night in front of a national audience. A dominant performance by Diaz topped the most exciting UFC on FOX broadcast of the three specials.

Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller headlined a four-fight UFC on FOX 4 prime time special that saw three finishes and one exciting three-round welterweight eliminator that went to the judges. But it was Diaz’s win in my opinion that was the most impressive as he tapped out Miller in front of his home town audience.

Diaz and Miller fought in what turned out to be a top contender’s fight. Miller came into the fight 2-1 against Diaz’s 3-0 winning streak. Yet even with the better winning streak in his last three fights, Diaz was a light underdog going ..click here to read more , , , , ,

UFC On FOX 3 Predictions & Preview

by

UFC On Fox 3 predictionsGood day CCB readers hopefully you’re all still reading this despite my awful prognostication skills at UFC 145. I’ll admit that many of those bouts didn’t go nearly as expected and some serious hype trains were derailed, but hey that’s the breaks in the sport where “anything can happen.” The UFC continues its onward march into the busy summer schedule with a free offering on network television this weekend. The UFC presents UFC on FOX 3 live from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey this Saturday night.

The UFC on FOX shows have been a bit of a mixed bag so far for fight fans. The first offering, which the UFC openly admitted was a bit of a trial run, was widely criticized by fans. Despite offering a Heavyweight Title fight for free, ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 2011-12 Winter Events Preview

by

The UFC will be gearing up for one of its most exciting winter seasons in years. With three UFC championship matches and a heavyweight collision for the ages, the UFC is posed for one of its most exciting winters in company history.

The UFC have borrowed pro wrestling’s “card subject to change” a lot lately due to a collection of injuries which have taken a number of fights off the summer and fall schedule. The good news is that summer and fall losses are winter’s gain.

Keeping in mind recent history of match changes, here is a quick UFC 2011 winter events preview. Come back closer to fight day to read full previews of the cards. Today I take a look at the biggest fights of the summer and how they will impact future UFC matchups going forward.

Finally, as of this writing there are no matchups available past the UFC 143 show. ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

TUF 13 Finale Results – Ferguson Wins, Guida Upsets

by

The Ultimate Fighter 13 closed out one of its most disappointing seasons with a memorable finale. Tony Ferguson won the UFC contract with a fantastic performance over Ramsey Nijem. Yet it was Clay Guida’s upset over Anthony Pettis that had people talking.

Clay Guida has turned into something of a “Mr. Spike TV” for the UFC. Guida fought in his third live The Ultimate Fighter finale special but did something he hasn’t done in his previous two fights…won. Guida defeated Anthony Pettis by unanimous decision in one of his best technical showings to date.

Anthony Pettis was the last WEC lightweight champion before the UFC integrated the WEC into the company. Pettis was set to fight the winner of Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard UFC 125 fight for the UFC lightweight title. Unfortunately nobody expected ..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 ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
