With all the complaining about Saturdays UFC 147 let’s not forget about Friday’s UFC on FX 4: Maynard vs. Guida from the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Coming off last month’s UFC on FOX event, it’s the promotions second trip to the state of New Jersey in less than two months.

For those of us skipping the abysmal UFC 147 card, we have an excellent and free card taking place at the UFC on FX 4 that should prove to be action-packed. In our main event, Gray Maynard will look to rebound from the first loss of his career as he faces lightweight perma-contender Clay Guida in an epic bout. With an emphasis on the lower weight classes for this card, we’re sure to see some fast and fierce battles, and there’s plenty of opportunity to make some quick cash here.
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?
Coming off wins at UFC 143 just a week ago, welterweights Matt Brown and Stephen Thompson already know their next opponent, each other. The UFC has confirmed that the two will square off against each other on April 21st at UFC 145 from Atlanta’s Philips Arena.
Nearly 70% (15 of 22) of the fighters on the UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit card was issued medical suspensions today by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Of the 15 fighters to be suspended, seven of those could be out of action for up to six months. One of the seven fighters that avoided suspension was Nick Diaz who lost in the main event to Carlos Condit by Unanimous Decision.
Forget about tomorrows little NFL game (for now) because tonight is UFC 143 and for some, the main event between Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit is their Superbowl. Their bout is for the interim welterweight title and offers fans one of the more exciting fights thus far this year.
