Main Card Impresses in San Jose (UFC on FOX 12 Review)

A lot of times in the UFC there are fighters who come into the promotion with plenty of hype and rise up to become contenders almost immediately. These fighters can win only a few fights and if they are impressive wins can get a title shot in almost no time. It has happened time and time again with fighters seemingly bolting up the rankings for a title shot. For some it is not fair as they need to prove themselves but many times they are the best fighters in the division. That causes them to get plenty of talk surrounding them which is how they earn their shots to begin with.

Sometimes the UFC can put on fights that are interesting but do not get anyone excited because they don’t know what to expect. Those fights are necessary for the continuation of the UFC in finding new contenders by putting them under pressure in televised events. Many times they can produce great fights unexpectedly and other times they can produce a card that has no big moments. That has tended to be the case for many of the televised events recently as the UFC has not been able to put on very exciting fights.

The UFC has gone to many places throughout the last few years including a place where many of the UFC fighters come from. Brazil has been a wild place to fight and with so many Brazilians stars filling out cards they seem to consistently be the loudest events.

The trend in the past few years for the UFC has been for fans and analysts to put together super fights that see the best fighters crossover weight classes to fight for titles. This week the UFC will get their first fight to do this, although not quite the super fight many had been hoping for. In the past few years many divisions have been cleaned out by dominant champions who have left nobody to challenge them.

Return to Toronto Pays Off

The UFC returned to Toronto for the second time in a year and for the UFC it was another great success. With an attendance of 18,303 and a gate of $3.9 million plus another wild crowd who enjoyed some great fights. The best of them was the main event when Jon Jones would attempt to defend his Light Heavyweight belt against a former champion in Lyoto Machida.
