With a myriad of events between Fight Night, Fight Pass and PPV, we have live UFC entertainment nearly every weekend. For sports fans, this is a great era to live in, where any night can be one of thrilling battles, vicious KOs and dazzling submissions.
UFC 171 will be a tough act to follow, but UFC Fight Night 38 will give it a try with another Brazilian-heavy fight card. Our main event is a rematch of one of the best light heavyweight fights in history, as Mauricio Rua looks to get revenge against Dan Henderson.
If you know me and what I'm about, you understand my begrudging acceptance of today's MMA. Once the headbutts were taken away and you couldn't grind the heel of your sneaker on a man's face, the sport began to take a turn towards main stream acceptance, yet lost the grit of reality combat. While the changes to the rules allowed the sport to reach larger audiences and become an international phenomenon, the original purpose was cast aside as it became a sport focused around manipulating rules, cutting weight and huge corporate sponsorships.
A champion is born, contenders are forged and broken, and overall mayhem ensued inside the cage at UFC 171 tonight. It was a night of solid performances with few cold spots, but worth it for the title fight alone.
The tournament might have went up in flames before it even started, but Bellator managed to put on a solid show all around, capping off Bellator 112 with an outstanding title fight.
A tournament that was hit by a massive injury bug, the Welterweights Bellator managed to cobble together will compete for the $100,000 tournament championship beginning at Friday’s Bellator 112. Our main event is a rubber match that absolutely no one asked for, as Daniel Straus faces Pat Curran in an immediate rematch of a non-competitive fight.
We've been having trials and tribulations with Fight Pass the last few weeks, but the UFC comes roaring back with a UFC 171 PPV card worthy of the money. Our main event is for the vacant UFC Welterweight title, as Johny Hendricks looks to right the wrongs of his decision loss to GSP.
It was a double-header for MMA last night, with Bellator 111 kicking off the festivities with their Heavyweight tournament and RFA 13 bringing up the rear with a contentious main event fight.
