Two fighters didn’t make weight on their first attempt and one of them even got tossed off the stage ahead off tomorrows UFC 160 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Back from another trip to Brazil the UFC returns home this Memorial Day weekend with a heavyweight title fight and UFC 160. Having regained his title in December of last year, Cain Velasquez defends the heavyweight title against a man in Antonio Silva that he completely destroyed almost exactly one year ago.
Another night and another title on the line as the UFC rolls into Fight City USA with an outstanding UFC 160 fight card. Our main event is a rematch you wouldn’t expect, yet one that is hard to argue against, as Cain Velasquez faces Antonio Silva for the second time. Silva was destroyed in their last fight, but a win over Travis Browne and Alistair Overeem paved his way to another chance at a win over Velasquez. The gold at the end of the rainbow just sweetens the pot.
The fallout from the Saturday’s epic UFC 139: Shogun vs. Henderson event was released today by the California State Athletic Commission. Out of the 24 fighters on the card, 13 of them received medical suspensions with the obvious combatants receiving extended suspensions.
Making their first trip to San Jose, California the UFC put together a deep fight card that delivered the goods inside the Octagon. The final two fights at UFC 139 were both awarded “Fight of the Night” honors for good reason. As far as Main & Co-Main events go, UFC 139 arguably had the best combination of the two on a single night.
The UFC 139 weigh-ins could easily go down as one of the most interesting pre-fight weigh ins ever between the scale troubles, outrageous outfits and personalities. With fighters walking out dressed in a suit (Danny Castillo) and as Steven Seagal (Tom Lawlor) the fans were treated to more than fighters stripping down to their skivvies and stepping on a scale.
Tomorrow night from the HP Pavilion inSan Jose,CA former WEC champions Brain Bowles and Urijah Faber square off in a match that could lead either man back to another bout with current champion, Dominick Cruz in 2012.
