Fighter Mentality on Display in Belfast

The sport of MMA is just as much mental as it is physical and finding success in both aspects means success in the cage but not every fight can do that, which was shown at UFC Fight Night 99.

The Light Heavyweight division is in a bit of a flex area right now as champion Jon Jones continues to recover from his reported drug issues. After his title fight against Daniel Cormier a drug test taken earlier in the week came to light with trace amounts of cocaine. That drug test had Jones admit himself to a drug treatment facility. That didn’t reportedly last too long though as he checked himself out of rehab after one day.

The UFC is on a roll through their first few events of 2015 as they continue to put on fights with top contenders. It all started with a light heavyweight title fight that Jon Jones won to retain his belt and continued with a superstar featherweight in Conor McGregor earning a title shot against Jose Aldo. Now those two things get matched together in the first fight of the year on FOX.

The UFC is fresh off of an embarrassing weekend with their main event suffering a last-minute change. The UFC had never been in that situation before as only 24 hours before they were set to fight the main event between T.J. Dillashaw and Renan Barao saw a change with Barao being forced out. The UFC was sent scrambling and found a last-minute replacement who put up a good showing but never really had a shot.

The UFC would do something that it has rarely done as they would create the ultimate day of fights for fight fans. It would also show a scary trend in the UFC as they continue to walk a fine line between giving fans what they want and putting too much out there. The UFC has always had there once a month fight cards on pay-per-view and that has never changed aside from the odd month where they feature two pay-per-view events. Then the UFC would sign a deal with Spike to broadcast live fights alongside their reality show, The Ultimate Fighter.

The middleweight division continues to sort itself out with Chris Weidman now sitting on top of the division. As fighters continue to sort themselves into the proper spots there will be two fighters that will face off at very different points in their careers. Mark Munoz and Gegard Mousasi are both veteran fighters and are both looking to continuing moving up the division rankings but they have had different paths to this point. For Mousasi the road has been a long one as he would start fighting in 2003 and would only join the UFC in 2013 to begin his run at a UFC title.

The UFC will make their return to Sweden and will once again feature one of the biggest European stars in the UFC.

There has yet to be a European champion in the UFC despite the big names that have set foot in the octagon.
