The time has arrived, UFC 154 is upon use and hopefully the welterweight division can get back to some form of normalcy. Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre returns to action after a long absence to take on the interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit to unify the belts.
Tag: Chad Griggs
The UFC welterweight champion returns to action this weekend as Canada’s Georges St-Pierre looks to unify the belts at UFC 154 in Montreal. Also looking to unify the belt will be the interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit who defeated Nick Diaz way back in February by unanimous decision. St-Pierre has been out since April of last year after injuring his knee late last year that required surgery.
It’s finally time to unify the Welterweight titles again, as GSP returns from his long hiatus to defend his belt at UFC 154. His opponent is a familiar face in the gym as interim champion Carlos Condit will welcome his partner back to the cage. While the fighters may be friends outside the cage, make no mistake as these two are coming for blood in the main event.
Following this weekend’s UFC 145: Jones vs. Evans event, the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission passed out suspensions to 20 of the 24 fighters. Three fighters were issued lengthy suspensions, while one was given an indefinite suspension.
Welcome to the UFC Chad Griggs! Griggs made his UFC debut tonight and it took Travis Browne two huge knees and an Arm Triangle to end it just 2:30 seconds into the opening frame. Travis Browne threw a picture perfect flying knee and followed it up with another knee that rocked Griggs. Moments later he took Griggs down and mounted him. Griggs showed some inexperience at that point almost pushing Browne into position for the Arm Triangle and then tapping moments later.
UFC 145 is the first UFC Pay-Per-View in nearly two months and takes place from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Headlining the night is the highly anticipated light heavyweight title fight between former team mates Jon Jones and Rashad Evans. There is no love lost between these two and the war of words is nearly over.
It’s been a long time coming, but Rashad Evans finally gets his title fight, and we as fans actually get to SEE a title fight at UFC 145. Will Evans have what it takes to hand Jones his first legitimate loss, or will Jones further cement his place as a P4P great in the sport?
Another Strikeforce heavyweight is coming to the UFC! Coming off three win inside the Strikeforce cage, Chad Griggs is heading to the Octagon to face Travis Browne at UFC 145. UFC officials announced the bouts verbal agreements over the holiday weekend and the fight should be finalized shortly.
