Okay, in a few hours UFC fight night 105 will air. Off all the fights I am most intrigued to see Mr Johny Hendricks, the former welterweight champion! I was waiting eagerly for the weigh-ins and Mr Johny came in at 185.5 pounds. Haha so strange. I just thought he would be somewhere around 180. Idk how he weighs so much. Anyways Johny looked happy after long. Man remember his previous weight cut and how he looked. Gosh. Good he looks happy. He’s a former champ for god’s sake. He’s facing Hector Lombard, former Bellator champ! He’s no easy fight for Johny and no way is Hector a pushover. But if Johny can find his grove and if that KO power is back, I see him winning. And I want him to win too. After three straight loses, he has to win this. Man common Johny, decision or KO doesn’t matter just get the W.
And the main event is super awesome as well. Black beast Derrick Lewis faces Travis Browne. Travis is at the most horrible stretch of his career as of now and Derrick is on a four fight win streak! Bad match up we think. But remember when Hapa was considered the next heavyweight champ? Yes he was supposed to be the next big thing just a couple of years ago. His career has slided down and his personal life also has been getting unnecessary attention of late as well. Cos of Ronda Rousey you say? Maybe, maybe not. Cos of Edmond the great you say? More maybe. What we know is that Travis is still under Ednomd. Idk, why man. His life you say? Ha yeah! But at the weigh-ins and the build up he looked calm. Derrick looks like a killer though. Idk man the dudes scary. And it was epic when he said he has to prove nada and he was fighting to provide for his family. That’s some emo stuff there. It was great Derrick saying he’s got nothing to prove when all other fighters out there say they will take the oppenets head off. Derrick though said something different. Something nice. I do not like Travis and I want Derrick to win. But Travis is looking great. I hope Derrick gets the W and goes on to face Francis Ngannou. That’s the match I want to see. Let me not get too ahead! Let’s watch the fight yeah.
Rest of the card is pretty ordinary but definitely is intriguing. The main and co main is awesome though! The card definitely is better than UFC 208! No predictions for any other fight. It’s all in fantasy. Let’s see how many I get correct!
See yeah all soon.
That’s the match to make. In July of 2017, when UFC have their biggest event, this is fight that sells. This fight is like the Mayweather and Pacquiao fight. This fight should have happened years ago, when both fighters were at their prime. But that’s not how it works in the fight game. In the fight game, the fight fans gotta wait. But is the wait worth after so many years? Absolutely a Daniel Bryan YES! But Mayweather vs Pacquiao did not live up to the hype and the controversy surrounding the shoulder injury later left a bad taste. Maybe GSP takes Silva down all the five rounds and bore the shit outa fans and we see an absolutely boring fight. Or maybe not. We may see the best of pure mixed martial arts from two of the very very best to ever do it. Yes. NOW THAT IS EXCITING. And that is why this match has to happen. Better later than never.
Yes there’s Nick Diaz and the winner of Woodley/ Thomson fight. But they can wait. Yes there’s time for all that to happen later. Oh! And Thomson says he won’t fight GSP if he wins. Hmm. So maybe the best fight to make is Silva vs GSP. And Anderson winning his previous fight, though controversy surrounding it, helps. The build up to this can be zoomed by UFC and definitely can be tagged as a ‘Once in a lifetime’. Wow just thinking of fight gives me goosebumps. Make it happen UFC. It’s long time coming.
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.
UFC PPV: The returning great George ‘Rush’ St-Pierre vs the greatest of all time Anderson ‘spider’ Silva.
The rematch, this time for the heavyweight championship, is set between Dos Santos and Stipe Miocic for UFC 211.
Considering how close the first match was, this one is expected to be bonkers. The clear deviation from the first meeting is that this time Miocic is a clear favourite after four straight KO’s. Miocic’s confidence will obviously be looming large since he became champ and earning victories back to back to back to back.
Dos Santos is coming of a long layoff. His chin has deteriorated in the recent past after hard fought battles in the past with Cain Velasquez and Miocic. It was clearly evident in his loss against previous title challenger Alistair Overeem. But he had make up with a technical win against Ben Rothwell. Dos Santos has spoken of going back to his strength, which is boxing and maintaining range. Considering the way Miocic and Junior fight, there is very low chance of this fight going to the ground.
Further in the heavyweight division, Cain is expected to face the possible next big thing in heavyweight division Francis Ngannou. If this happens, the winner will undoubtedly be receiving the next title shot (fingers crossed that Cain stays healthy for once, Pls Cain stay strong). And also if this fight happens it must main event or be a co-main of a big card.
The kickman Fabricio Werdum will face Ben Rothwell at UFC 211, the same card where the championship fight takes place. I clearly see Werdum winning this but I do not expect him to get the next title shot considering his past antics and relationship with Dana White, president of UFC.
Also there is Derrick Lewis vs Travis ‘hapa’ Brown main eventing the fight night 105 and also the return Mark Hunt against Alistair Overeem. Also for some strange reason am also excited for the return of Todd Duffee (hmm Never back down emo shiz).
GOOD LORD. Some exciting times ahead for the heavyweights in the UFC. The scene is beautiful and lets pray that everyone stays bloody healthy.
