UFC Live 6: Cruz vs. Johnson Main Card Breakdown

| September 30, 2011 | Reply

Once again fight fans are gifted with a free UFC fight card with some of the most exciting fighters in the world. The UFC Live 6 main event will be broadcasted on Spike Television this Saturday night live from the nation’s capital for the first time in Washington DC. An event promising to fill the Verizon Center will showcase a live title fight free for the first time since 2007.

Matt Wiman will meet Mac Danzig for the second time in a lightweight fight that will defiantly showcase many aspect of MMA in the very first shown fight. The two fought back at UFC 115 with Wiman winning a controversial fight that ended by first round phantom submission. Danzig is looking to prove  their first fight was a fluke while Wiman will try to do it all over again. Wiman is a great grappler with exciting Sakuraba style ground and pound which will defiantly get us all in the mood for some great fights.

Charlie Brenneman will need to reach far for a win over a solid welterweight named Anthony Johnson. Johnson is a great wrestler with stopping power in the strikes who can keep Brenneman at bay and also should be the clear-cut favorite to win in a dominate fashion.

Heavyweights Pat Barry and Stefan Struve will fight their hearts out to stay in the UFC both coming off knockout losses. The ticker is Barry has only been KO’d once in his career while Struve seems to continuously keep getting blasted into the corner of the cage asleep. If Barry can keep the fight standing he should walk away from this fight with a win and a knockout bonus. Struve needs to use his reach and when Barry gets close, take the fight to the ground affair where he has the clear-cut advantage.

Dominick Cruz will meet the fastest up and comer in the division Demetrious Johnson who has seemed to pass every test the UFC has put in front of him to date. This is the fight of the night that seems to be in the favorite’s bag but out of all the underdogs, Johnson has the greatest chance. With a great grappling game and a grind that never stops, choosing not to strike with Cruz could show everyone including Cruz a fight we have not seen before from the champ. The variable that makes this good for Cruz is his wrestling experience, footwork, and reach seemingly take Johnson out of the win before the fight even starts. Johnson has great speed and athleticism that makes this a great fight on paper that’s honestly up in the air.
