Fans have been dying to see a super fight between two champions for years now. It seems that whenever one of these super fights gets close to being reality, something happens and the fight fans are left wondering what could have been.
As you know the UFC is returning to Sacramento, California in December for the UFC on FOX 9. Since the announcement of the event the UFC has been quickly filling up the fight card and “on paper”, you’d have to agree that Northern California is getting one of the best MMA cards of 2013.
Another month has gone by and the MMA fighter rankings were once again shaken up as #1 ranked UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson was defeated by Anthony Pettis at UFC 164. This comes on the heels of Anderson Silva losing his #1 ranking after being defeated by Chris Weidman at UFC 162.
A solid night of fights all around at tonight’s UFC 164. There was plenty of high quality action in the cage across all weight classes. A belt changed hands, contenders were set on track, and we learned a lot about several fighters, old and new.
Following Wednesday Fight Night 27 event, the UFC makes a quick turnaround for tomorrow’s UFC 164 from Milwaukee, Wisconsin as part of the Harley Davidson Hometown Showdown. Headlining the fight card is the UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson looking to avenge his loss to Anthony Pettis back at WEC 53.
There has been a fair bit of controversy surrounding the UFC 164 main event, but whether or not the matchmaking is suspect, the match itself is sure to be magnificent. Years removed from their last outing, Henderson and Pettis are back to see whose come the farthest since WEC closed their doors, and it’s anyone’s guess who will hold the belt at night’s end.
