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.

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.

The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson

Featherweight Bout: Dustin Poirier defeated Jonathan Brookins via Submission (D’arce Choke) in Round 1 – 4:15

This was a highly entertaining bout for the four minutes that it lasted. The two exchanged wild punches at the beginning and that might be a slight cause for concern for Poirier. However near the end of the round he dropped Brookins momentarily, and then stuffed ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 150 Henderson Vs. Edgar II Results – Henderson Retains Via Decision

by

Frankie Edgar wasn’t supposed to be challenging for the UFC lightweight title at UFC 150. Yet after a public campaign, Edgar wound up getting the immediate rematch. Edgar and Henderson picked up where they left off in Japan and ended with even more controversy than before.

Ben Henderson retained the UFC lightweight title over Frankie Edgar via split decision in Denver, Colorado Saturday night at UFC 150. The five-round fight saw some high moments, yet I found it to be pretty disappointing as compared to their first fight. You won’t see any real highlight moments such as the up kick from their last fight but what you will see is a decision that I think was one of the worst in UFC history.

I was stunned when Bruce Buffer read the cards and announced Benson Henderson as the winner. I almost expected him to interrupt the post-fight interview and say that he ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 150 Henderson Vs. Edgar II Predictions & Analysis

by

The UFC will be looking to build on an impressive Fox card with their return to Denver, Colorado. The last time the UFC took to the mountains of Colorado, the card featured a number of big athletes slowing down in the thin mountain air, leading to lackluster affairs and slow paced brawls. The UFC seems to have learned from past mistakes, as this card features men no larger than the Middleweight limit of 185-pounds.

The main event features re-match virtuoso and former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie “The Answer” Edgar looking to regain his title from the man that took it from him “Smooth” Benson Henderson. The co-main event features a Lightweight tilt that seems to have Fight of the Night written all over it, as former teammates collide when Melvin Guillard battles Donald Cerrone. Other main card action features two Middleweight tilts and a potential Featherweight slugfest. In Middleweight action Jake ..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 , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

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.

UFC 136: Edgar Vs. Maynard III Results – Edgar & Aldo Retain, Sonnen Returns

by

Edgar Maynard IIIUFC 136 was headlined by two championship matches but it was a post match promo that will be most remembered. Chael Sonnen was the man who stole the headlines with his post fight challenge, turning the UFC upside down with his WWE style challenge to Anderson Silva.

Chael Sonnen returned after a fourteen month layoff and defeated Brian Stann in the second round with an arm-triangle. Sonnen just smothered Stann with ground and pound for a round and a half before finally ending Stann’s misery. As impressive as Sonnen was during the fight, it was what Sonnen said after the fight that is making headlines.

“Anderson Silva, you absolutely suck. Super Bowl, weekend, the biggest weekend but we’re upping the stakes. I beat you, you leave the division. You beat me, I will leave the UFC forever.”

Sonnen upped the stakes ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
