And still UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones! Were the words out of the mouth of the UFC ring announcer Bruce Buffer following the UFC 165 main event between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson.

The UFC begins their stretch run towards the end of 2013 with Saturday’s dual title fight headlined UFC 165. Over the final three and a half months of 2013 every UFC champion, except Featherweight Jose Also (injury) will be in action across 11 events.
A duel title tilt is a sure way to make me crack open my dusty wallet, and you can be sure DirectTV is getting a little richer at my expense for this Saturday’s UFC 165. The belts on the line are the 205 lb. and 135 lb. honors, as Jon Jones moves closer to breaking Anderson Silva’s record-holding titles and Barao looks to ensure his Interim strap becomes the real deal.
Tonight UFC 149 was one of those nights; some will call it an off-night while others will refer to it as crap. While the final four fights couldn’t live up to the rest of the card, UFC 149 did have its moments and a few of the fighters were rewarded for them.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has finally made it to Calgary with tonight’s UFC 149 in the Saddledome. The card has seen move change than a vending machine but despite all this turmoil the 11 bout fight card that will go down tonight is a true testament to the depth of the UFC roster.
Tomorrows UFC 149 has gone through massive changes from top to bottom and Canadian welterweight Chris Clements was one of the many replacement fighters. After Thiago Alves got injured he stepped in to face Siyar Bahadurzada on the UFC 149 main card. You would be seeing that exciting bout though as Bahadurzada would get injured and be replaced by Matt Riddle to complete to overhaul.
UFC 149 seemed to be such a cursed fight card but that all changed (hopefully) as all 24 fighters easily made weight today in Calgary. The injuries piled up and the changes were a plenty on the UFC 149 fight card, but the fighters that survived to make on the final card appear ready to go.
Saturday’s UFC 149 is probably the most changed UFC fight card in recent history. Between all the injuries and shuffling around, the card has seen nearly every fight different from originally announced including the loss of the featherweight title fight between Jose Aldo and Eric Koch. Surprisingly though the UFC pulled it all together and UFC 149 has transformed into a solid fight card.
