10 Most Anticipated UFC 2013 Fights

by

2012 will go down as a mixed year in the UFC. Unable to deliver the big super fights, the UFC will attempt to rebound in 2013 with several highly anticipated fights both scheduled and in planning.

If there was one disappointment with the UFC in 2012 it was the inability to pull off big fights. Even realistic super fights in division like Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz failed to materialize for a variety of reasons. With an all-star roster on deck featuring new fighters from Strikeforce, the UFC has the potential to blow away 2012 with several big fights this year. Now whether the UFC can pull these off or not is another story altogether.

I sat down with the idea of writing about the 10 most anticipated UFC fights of 2013. Unfortunately I had a rough time coming up with anything past five. It isn’t as if the big fights aren’t ..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 sitting ..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 fighting ..click here to read more , , , ,

Alistair Overeem Targeting Bigfoot Silva Fight At UFC 156

by

We all know that Dana White is a gambler but he is taking a big one at UFC 156. Alistair Overeem is scheduled to return but will not be stepping right back into a title fight. The former champion will instead have to go throw a giant en route to a championship fight.

Antonio Bigfoot Silva has been calling out Alistair Overeem and it appears that the UFC have listened. The former Strikeforce fighters have been signed to fight on the UFC Super Bowl weekend extravaganza on February 2. The fight of course is contingent on Overeem getting his license back after being suspended for testing positive for PEDs. Overeem can apply for the license as soon as December 27. Although it is certainly not a guarantee.

“Come Dec. 27, he’s like any other fighter,” NAC executive director Keith Kizer said. “He’s free to apply for his license. The commission ..click here to read more , , , , ,
