UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva Results and Wrap Up

by

It wasn’t the most highly anticipated card of the year, but it was an entertaining one nonetheless last night from Las Vegas. In the main event and co-main event of the evening, Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos both proved why they are the top of the heap in the Heavyweight division, with each man earning impressive stoppage victories over their opponents.

In other main card action Donald Cerrone battered and bloodied KJ Noons, giving him a rude welcoming to the UFC in a bout that left the octagon covered in blood. Canadian Lightweight TJ Grant continued his career resurgence since dropping from 170-pounds, as he blitzed former title challenger Gray Maynard in the first round, to earn a TKO victory and a title shot against Benson Henderson. In the other main card bout streaking Brazilian prospect Glover Teixeira earned a first round submission over James Te Huna.

UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva Predictions and Analysis

by

The UFC is back on Pay Per View this weekend and once again the Heavyweights are the main attraction. The UFC’s Heavyweight title is on the line in the main event as Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva gets a second crack at reigning UFC champion Cain Velasquez. The co-main event was expected to feature a grudge match between former champion Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem, however an injury forced Overeem to withdraw from the event and he was subsequently replaced by surging New Zealand-based banger Mark Hunt.

UFC 160 takes place live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada this Saturday night. In other main card action Gray Maynard and TJ Grant will scrap it out for a UFC Lightweight title shot against Benson Henderson.

UFC Signs Two Big Heavyweight Fights For UFC 160

by

The UFC is gearing up for another top heavyweight May event. A new report indicates that the UFC will roll out its two biggest heavyweight fights on deck for the event which should set the table for the remainder of 2013 in the heavyweight division at UFC 160.

Dave Meltzer reports on his latest F4Wonline.com podcast that while the UFC aren’t committing to another all-heavyweight card, they are coming back with heavyweight headliners for their May event. If all things go as planned the event will see a rematch one year in the making with a lot more at stake than was in their previous battle.

Cain Velasquez will likely defend the UFC heavyweight title against Antonio Bigfoot Silva in the main-event. I have to admit that this surprised me. I’ll give the UFC a lot of credit here. The fight certainly isn’t what’s best for business right now. ..click here to read more , , , ,

UFC Champ Cain Velasquez: Who’s Next?

by

The UFC is still reeling days after their planned heavyweight championship showdown fell apart thanks to a big, nasty giant. So what is next for Cain Velasquez? Let’s take a look at the division and breakdown some possible matchups for the champ.

It was too easy yet the UFC got cute and fell on their faces. Alistair Overeem walked into the UFC looking like a Greek God and sent the former heavyweight kingpin Brock Lesnar into retirement. The aura was created, the fans bought in, and a million dollar challenger was born.

Even with a failed PED test (which had a ton of comedy around it), Overeem was still promised the next title fight. Then Overeem and the UFC made the ultimate gamble and set up their golden challenger with a tune up fight. Unfortunately this isn’t pro wrestling and there is never a guaranteed win in MMA. They both found out ..click here to read more , , , , , , , ,

Alistair Overeem Licensed To Fight Big Foot At UFC 156

by

Alistair Overeem is signed to fight Big Foot Silva at UFC 156. Overeem however is suspended and needed to plea forgiveness to the NSAC on Tuesday to get re-licensed. He did and will take only his second UFC fight in February.

Overeem was suspended for nine months after returning a testosterone-to-epitestosterone (T/E) level of 14:1 prior to his scheduled UFC 146 title fight last year with Junior Dos Santos. The UFC had booked Overeem tentatively to return at UFC 156 provided he could get licensed. After all was said and done it was nothing but a mere formality for the Strikeforce heavyweight champion.

If you expected the Nevada State Athletic Commission to grill Overeem you were mistaken. The hearing was more about what they could do better to test as opposed to Overeem and the shenanigans he pulled up through the last hearing. The quack doctor, the elaborate tales, and running away from ..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 , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

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 Heavyweights Analyze Dos Santos Vs. Velasquez II

by

UFC 155 will feature one of the most anticipated heavyweight clashes in UFC history. Junior Dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez will fight a second time and even after a convincing KO win, not everyone is convinced that JDS can do it twice…especially his peers.

It is easy for a blogger like me to sit here and make UFC predictions but even I’ll admit it is more interesting to hear them from the pros themselves. So let’s hear what the heavyweights that have stepped into the UFC octagon have to say about Velasquez vs. JDS II.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture is going with the challenger.

“The rematch is gonna be interesting, I think you’ll see Cain back at the top of his game and sharp it was a question with the shoulder issues he had. Coming back and fighting a guy the caliber of Dos Santos. he was just ..click here to read more , , , , , , ,

Alistair Overeem “I Want Dos Santos To Win”

by

UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem is turning into one of the most quotable fighters in sports. Overeem is not shy when it comes to his thoughts on champion Junior Dos Santos. That is why it is no surprise that Overeem is pulling for the Brazilian in his next title fight.

Overeem may be on suspension but he hasn’t stopped talking about UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos. Overeem tells the Las Vegas Sun that he hopes Junior wins his upcoming title defense against Cain Velasquez so he can have his shot at knocking out JDS.

“I want dos Santos to win so I can beat him, but I think Cain is going to take care of him for me, unfortunately,” Overeem said. “Junior is going to get taken down. He’s going to get ground-and-pounded.”

The K1 Grand Prix winner and former Strikeforce champion is not amused at Junior’s recent wavering on ..click here to read more , , , ,
