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


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 here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

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


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 here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit Predictions and Preview


The UFC makes it’s long awaited return to La Belle Province this weekend as it also makes its return to the airwaves of Pay Per View. Live from the Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec, Canada the UFC brings UFC 154 live this Saturday night. Featuring the return of UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre defending his title against Interim Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit, this card should bring tons of excitement. And with the potential of Anderson Silva being in the building, possibly or possibly not to call out St. Pierre after the bout, this Saturday should hold a lot of intrigue for a number of fight fans.

As usual the UFC has loaded a lot of the preliminary card with local Canadian grown talent and although this card has been criticized for lacking big name value outside of the main event there are a number of bouts that should offer sufficient here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC Targets Two Big Fights For The Fall


Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos SantosWe aren’t even into summer yet and the UFC is moving ahead with some big fall plans. According to several reports, two big championship fights are heading your way and the UFC has tentative dates for both headline fights.

The first big and I do mean big fight will head to Toronto, Canada on September 22. The UFC have targeted UFC 152 to hold the highly anticipated Junior Dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez UFC heavyweight championship rematch. The fight will be supported underneath in the co-main event with BJ Penn returning to the octagon to fight Canadian Rory MacDonald.

Jon Fitch Is Irritated & Wants To Hurt Some People


UFC fighter Jon Fitch told this week that he is angry at himself, the UFC, Nick Diaz, and just irritated in general. The irony here is that if Fitch fought with this same kind of aggression in the UFC, he probably would be a much more likeable fighter.

Jon Fitch is one of the most polarizing fighters in MMA. There is no denying his skills and the fact that he is one of the best fighters in the sport, arguably the second best overall in his division. Yet Fitch is undefeated in his last six fights and continues to be overlooked in championship fights. Needless to say, Fitch is angry and appears to be done playing Mr. Nice Guy.

For those of you that don’t know Fitch’s story, Fitch fought BJ Penn to a draw in his last fight at UFC 127. Fitch here to read more , , , , , , , , , ,

Matt Hughes Vs. Diego Sanchez Official For UFC 135


A long rumored UFC welterweight clash is now official. Former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes vs. The Ultimate Fighter Season 1 winner Diego Sanchez is signed and the UFC will deliver the fight at UFC 135 on September 24.

This is certainly one of the more interesting fights on remaining 2011 UFC calendar. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a must-win fight for either guy. I think that term is thrown out way too often and is just more drama than reality in most cases. But for Diego Sanchez, he will be doing a lot of soul searching if he can’t put away the aging Hughes.

About the only thing that these two warriors have in common other than weight is the fact that they were both recently dominated by former UFC champion BJ Penn (both also have finished Joe Riggs here to read more , , , , , , , , , , ,

15 UFC Main-Events That Needed Five Rounds


Dana White announced last week that all UFC main-events will be five rounds going forward. I have seen mixed reaction on the move in the MMA community. Yet in my opinion, I don’t think there is anything wrong with more fighting.

The move is certainly a big game changer. Fighters will now have to come into to non-title main-event fights with a bigger emphasis on cardio. Fighters who are known to strike early and fast will now have to pace themselves for a potential grueling two additional rounds. Fans will also get more bang for their buck with the addition of more rounds to their headliners. It seems good to me.

This isn’t to say that there aren’t drawbacks with the change. With the addition of two more rounds, we probably will see less classic non-title headlining fights as guys will be more cautious with their pace. The intrigue of here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez Preview and Predictions


UFC 121One week removed from a solid UFC 120 in the UK, the promotion returns stateside for what will more-than-likely be one of the biggest, if not THE biggest, PPV of 2010 as heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar takes his slightly slimmer, bearded physique into the Octagon to face undefeated Cain Velasquez.

I sincerely hope Lesnar keeps the beard for fight night because the clean-shaven, flat top WWE thing is getting stale. In the event that the Yankees somehow push the ALCS to game 7 on Saturday, I will no longer be watching this fight at home and will instead relocate to a bar where I can watch both events and lose my sanity in a public setting with lots of beer.

UFC officially signs Jake Shields


Jake ShieldsGet your pillows and blankets ready UFC fans. It is now confirmed that Jake Shields has signed with the UFC. The ex-Strikeforce Middleweight champion confirmed the news on Twitter. Shields will debut at UFC 121 facing Martin Kampmann at welterweight.

The news is hardly a surprise to anyone who has followed this story over the last few months. Shields became a free agent after fulfilling his contract to Strikeforce at Strikeforce: Nashville. Shields headlined the CBS event defeating former UFC and Pride superstar Dan Henderson by decision. Strikeforce never signed Shields to a champion’s clause, thus allowing Shields contract to expire while holding their middleweight title. Strikeforce refused to get into a bidding war for Shields and let their champion a couple of weeks back.

The UFC signing Shields is hardly here to read more , , , , , ,
