UFC 102 - Couture vs. Nogueira

Well, honestly I'm more excited about a couple of the other fights on the card besides Couture and Nogueira.

1 - Nate Marquardt vs. Demian Maia - this is going to be a great fight! Marquardt is very powerful and Maia is a guy who can take punishment and pull out a submission at any time. I'm very excited to see how this turns out!

2 - Brandon Vera vs. Krzysztof Soszynski - another great fight. Vera hasn't looked the best in his last few fights so I'm hoping he turns it around here. Krzysztof looked great in his last fight so this should really be a great one!

3 - Keith Jardine vs. Thiago Silva - I'm very interested to see how Silva rebounds from being KO'd by Machida. Jardine is up and down so it depends on which Jardine shows up on Saturday. In any case, I'm pretty pumped for this one.

Those are my three to watch. I hope they all turn out well and aren't duds. Enjoy the fights this weekend

Seth Petruzelli won!

Yes fight fans, the man who beat Kimbo won again and in convincing fashion. Now, I don't know how much of a fighter Chris Baten (5-5) is, but really, Seth Petruzelli (11-4) has a ton of experience on the guy. Seth won via KO, but that isn't really a big deal to me at this time. Here is what I'm thinking....

If Kimbo wins the entire heavyweight Ultimate Figher, his first fight after that should be against Seth Petruzelli. He needs to fight him again, and do it on the main card of a pay per view. I'd also say that even if Kimbo looses in the finalie or sometime during the show, he should still be put on at least one card and his opponent should be Seth. It has the making of a good fight. Then, if Kimbo wins, he stays...but if he looses, he needs to go somewhere else. You can't loose two times to Seth Petruzelli especially if Kimbo wins the show. I don't know if he could take it mentally.

Anyway, that's my take...

Yep, WOW

All I have to say is WOW

Well, ok, I can't believe he's doing this. I guess it gives him an opportunity to do something else while he decides who to fight next. Maybe Tom Bergeron will step into the octagon with Chuck after this!

Cyborg the real deal?

Well, as we saw over the weekend, Cyborg beat up in Gina Carano and had her finished in the first round. But, now people are asked who might be next for Cyborg?

Here is a link to MMA Junkie with a possible opponent

Marloes Coenen (16-3) has been added to the Strikeforce roster and could in fact be the next person to fight Cyborg. She's been in the business for 9 years. I've never seen her fight, but should probably do some work to find some of her fights. It would be interesting to see this least right now.

Now, I'm wondering who'd next for Carano? Any thoughts?

Carano vs. Cyborg..and other fights

I've seen both of these women fight and I for one am pretty excited to see how this turns out. I unfortunately don't have Showtime so I'll have to watch it after it's all said and done. That being said, I think this will be a tough fight. I don't know that it will go the distance, but I do feel that although Carano has shown that she is a great fighter, I believe that Cyborg will win this contest. My thought is that she will take Carano down and submit her.

The other fights on the card are cool, but I'm interested in seeing how Jesse Taylor does against Jay Hieron. Hieron is a very experienced fighter but Jesse is young and extremely strong. This should hopefully be another good fight and I'd like to see Jesse take this one....

More later.

Baroni Could be back in the UFC

Well, we should find out shortly if Baroni is back in the UFC. He' currently on mmajunkie radio and ready for an announcement.

Baroni has been around a while and it would be nice to see him back in the UFC one more time before he's all said and done. While his record isn't the best (13-11) he definitely has a following and should be a nice addition to the 170 cast.
