Check out this sick promo for UFC 236!
It is nearly time! UFC 234 is tomorrow, and it is time to preview the headliner. Robert “The Reaper/Bobby Knuckles” Whittaker squares off against Kelvin “The Legend Killer” Gastelum in a showdown of 20-somethings for the 185 strap.
Welcome to FIGHT WEEK! We are continuing our full week of content with a preview of UFC 234’s co-main event which features Anderson “The Spider” Silva against Israel “The Last Stylebender” Adesanya.
Jose Aldo is in the co-main event of this weekends UFC Fortaleza card. In his first fight back since losing his Featherweight title to Max Holloway at UFC 212, he is looking to continue his winning ways, squaring off against promising prospect Renato Moicano. Beyond this weekend, however, what is left for Aldo in the sport?
Over the weekend (not last night, but last night works better for the title, so don’t hassle me), Greg Hardy made his UFC debut on ESPN+ in the co-main slot against Allen Crowder. We know how it went, losing by DQ due to an illegal knee, so is the Greg Hardy experiment over?
The fight is official. Both men made weight and there is a potential Champ-Champ to be made in Brooklyn. Let’s see how the current 125 and current 135 champ stack up.
2019 is HERE. While we have two weeks until the first card of the year, now is a great time to look at the UFC roster and make a few predictions for this upcoming calendar year. Also, now that I put these in writing, I am almost certain that none of these will hold to be true at the end of the year.
This Saturday, the UFC is in Toronto for UFC 231, where it is headlined by the leader of the Blessed Era Max Holloway and Brian Ortega. This is truly a razor close fight and shows how far MMA has evolved, as these two exemplify 2018 elite MMA skills.
It was recently announced by a number of sources that Anderson Silva will return to the Octagon to face Middleweight prospect/contender Israel Adesanya. “The Spider” has not fought in nearly two years, and will be days shy of a year layoff at UFC 234 in February. “The Last Stylebender,” however, has been extremely active, fighting 4 times in 2018, winning all of them with 2 finishes, most recently over Derek Brunson. Many critics are saying this is a dangerous fight for an aging Silva and criticize the UFC and Dana White for condemning Chuck Liddell’s fight while announcing this one in the same breath. HOWEVER, this is truly the fight to make for both parties.
In a huge week of fight announcements and withdrawals, one that stood out to me was that Derrick Lewis got a long-awaited title shot against Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. Truly, this is such a Derrick Lewis way to get a shot, and we will explain why, but I just want to say that Derrick Lewis is getting what he deserves.
Happy Conor Week, friends. It is about time there is a UFC card and Conor McGregor is headlining. It is long overdue. Now, with that, he is not the sole story that is worth mentioning this weekend. Here, we are going to mention some other noteworthy storylines.
This weekend, James Vick FINALLY has the chance to prove himself against an elite guy at 155 after a rather disappointing result against Beneil Dariush in 2016. "The Texecutioner" (an all-time good MMA name) is facing Justin Gaethje, and although he's on a two fight skid currently, he's a guy that will be around the top as long as he is in the organization.
This weekend, the UFC is back in Canada, this time in Calgary and on big boy FOX. Something that isn’t being heavily discussed is the fact that Eddie Alvarez is on the last fight of his contract. He previously rejected a contract this year, saying the terms simply weren’t good enough for “The Underground King.” So this Saturday’s outcome is HUUUUGE for Alvarez, and more specifically, his pocket book.
This weekend, the UFC invades Asia once again, this time in Singapore for a night of fights. Also, partially as a result of the massive time difference, the card is on Fight Pass and has a lot of garbage on it. It’s just the way it is. There are a couple bright spots, including the main event. That main event includes crowd-favorite UFC LEGEND (yeah, I said it) Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone.
The Untitled boys accidentally solved the UFC weigh in situation…
Yesterday, MMA did not take a break, as there was the season premeire of Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series (wow that's a mouthful), where prospects fought in front of the boss in hopes of making it to the UFC. Well, two contracts were given. One of those contracts was that of the polarizing, controversial former NFL Pro-Bowler Greg Hardy, who took 57 seconds to dismantle his co-former NFL player opponent. So, like him or not, Greg Hardy is going to fight in the UFC (at some point).
While I have been seeing a lot of talk about this weekend’s card, there hasn’t been a whole lot of talk about the main event, which is an excellent main event to cap off an excellent card. If this is you as well, fear not, because here’s a preview of the Middleweight championship bout between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero.
This weekend, the UFC goes across the pond to Liverpool and has a blockbuster main event. It pits rising superstar Darren Till and former title challenger Stephen Thompson.
