UFC 163 Aldo Vs. Jung Results and Wrap Up

by

Apologies for the lateness of this wrap up everyone. Some plans from this weekend got in the way of me viewing UFC 163 live, so I was a day and a half behind before I was finally able to catch a replay of the event. Despite me taking the card to task a little bit beforehand for lack of big name recognition, the card mostly delivered. Although the main event failed to live up to the expected fireworks, it still provided a relatively entertaining scrap, there was also a Light Heavyweight robbery, a return to form from a Brazilian Middleweight as well as an exciting Flyweight scrap. Let’s take a look at what happened and what’s next in the fallout from UFC 163 from Rio de Janeiro.

UFC 163 Aldo Vs. Jung Predictions and Analysis

by

Last weekend was a bit of a downer for the UFC as an organization. Despite a highly entertaining main event featuring a championship bout which itself featured the champion defending the title in his home state, the event was widely considered a ratings flop. It did pretty awful numbers on Fox, ranking as dead-last to second-last in terms of ratings depending on the varying reports that are making rounds on the internet. With that said, I’m going to take the UFC to task a little bit more than I usually do. They are following up a free card on Fox that did poorly with underwhelming results in live attendance and live viewership on television with a Pay Per View offering, that in my opinion and the opinion of several others leaves a lot to be desired in terms of name value.

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. Things are no different this week as the UFC returns to the PPV airwaves with UFC 159 from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. After spending a season coaching opposite one another on the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter, supposed rivals, but sometimes frenemies Chael Sonnen and Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones will battle for the title in the main event.

The co-main event of the evening is a Middleweight slugfest between two fighters who really don’t like each other. There have been a number of proposed car and tattoo bets between Alan Belcher and Michael Bisping, as well as ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Monday Morning Retrospective: A Look Back at UFC 153 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The dust has settled and once again UFC fans were treated to a highly entertaining night of fights. A main card that featured six bouts completely delivered in every fight. Five out of six fights on the main card ended without the need for the judge’s scorecards and the only one that required the services of the judge’s won the bonus check for Fight of the Night. Let’s take a look at all of the fights from Saturday’s Pay Per View card and examine what went wrong for each fighter, what went right for each fighter, and most importantly, where they go from here.

UFC 153 Results: Silva TKOs Bonnar In Round 1

by

Anderson Silva came to Brazil, he saw, and he dominated. Silva earned his sixteenth UFC win at UFC 153 with a brutal win over Stephan Bonnar. The strange main-event was every bit a mismatch inside the octagon as it was on paper.

Bonnar charged Silva immediately. They fought up against the cage as Bonnar hit a few knee strikes on Silva’s leg. Bonnar and Silva exchanged knee strikes against the cage. Bonnar was trying to take Silva down unsuccessfully. They fought for position up against the cage for about two minutes. Bonnar got a few short punches in. They exchanged a few strikes briefly. Silva hung out by the cage waiting for Bonnar. Bonnar missed a spinning kick. Silva appeared to be mocking him at this point with his defense. Silva laid flat against the cage with his hands down while Bonnar struck to no avail. Silva tripped Bonnar, followed in ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC On FOX 4 Shogun Vs. Vera Predictions & Analysis

by

The injury-bug has continued to plague the UFC this summer and after a fairly disappointing effort in Calgary, Alberta for UFC 149, the UFC is hoping to right the ship this weekend on network TV. The UFC rolls into the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California this weekend for their fourth offering on Fox.

Dana White and the hype machine have stoked the fires in an effort to try and gain casual fan interest in this card by promising that one of the Light Heavyweights in the Main and Co-Main Event will be one of the next men to challenge for the Light Heavyweight Championship. As Eric has discussed already in a couple of excellent blogs, the effort is almost laughable from a credibility point of view, but it’s a stroke of marketing genius that is surely going to get a few more eyeballs on the product come Saturday night.

Sonnen & Evans Winners On UFC On Fox 2

by

UFC on Fox 2 resultsIt was a bitter sweet night for the UFC when it comes to UFC on Fox 2 results. On the bright side, they got the right winners for their future UFC money matches. On the downside, they probably won’t have many new viewers the next time out on Fox after tonight’s grinding broadcast.

The UFC took advantage of new viewers and publicity with their first FOX broadcast and delivered expected fireworks. Unfortunately for a show that needed to follow that momentum, they came up real small tonight in Chicago. Three decision fights with very little fire power may have stalled any momentum from the first broadcast right in its place.

Let me be clear as an MMA fan, I enjoyed most of the night. Yet even I couldn’t find much redemption in the opening fight. As ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC On Fox 2 Predictions & Analysis

by

UFC on Fox 2It has been a whirlwind of activity lately for the world’s largest Mixed Martial Arts promotion. The UFC continues to start 2012 with a roar of activity this weekend with their return to network television as the UFC presents UFC on FOX 2 from Chicago, Illinois. The main card features a trio of fights, capped off by Light Heavyweight and Middleweight title eliminator bouts. A late injury to former main event fighter Mark Munoz caused some card-shuffling, but many would argue that this has only made the card more exciting with more marketable bouts.

In the main event of the evening “Sugar” Rashad Evans continues his never-ending quest towards former teammate and UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones when he takes on Phil “Mr. Wonderful” Davis. The co-main event of the evening sees a battle between two ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC Undisputed 3 Pre-order Bonus Fighters & Offers

by

Nick DiazIt pays to pre-order video games these days, even if they aren’t going to be released until next year. Pre-order UFC Undisputed 3 now through the release date and you can have your choice at everything to extra fighters to several bonus packs.

These days, I think it is pretty silly not to pre-order a video game you know you are going to buy. There are always incentives, some which you will never get once the game is actually released. THQ is hoping to rebound from a disappointing UFC Undisputed 2010 with several rewards for eager game owners that will make the game that much better once it leaves the box. So as Mike Goldberg would say, “Here we go!”

For the second edition in a row, GameStop will once again offer bonus fighters with UFC Undisputed 3 pre orders. GameStop has ..click here to read more , , , , , ,

UFC 133: Evans Vs. Ortiz Results – Rashad Wins Via TKO, Belfort KO’s Akiyama

by

Rashad Evans vs. Tito Ortiz picked up right where they left off four years ago with an exciting UFC 133 main-event. Ortiz put in a valiant effort after taking the fight on short notice, but he was no match for Evans in Philadelphia.

They opened up tentative, feeling each other out in the early moments. Ortiz went for takedowns and took down Evans during the first round. He wasn’t able to hold him long and Evans came up swinging. The two broke out into a wild slugfest, with Tito coming out on the losing end of the stick. Evans trapped Ortiz against the cage at one point but was unable to finish. The round ended with Evans dropping down strikes on a fallen Ortiz.

The second round started with both fighters circling looking for position. Evans finally charged but ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
