The Zombie Adds Another Victim (UFC on Fuel TV 3 Review)

The UFC went back to Fuel TV this week as they hosted UFC on Fuel TV 3 with a number of important fights on the card. None of these fights were meant to show the next contender or the next best fighter but instead meant a lot for each of the participants.

Wrestling Comes Back in the Bayou

There has been an interesting trend in the past events in the UFC as the art of the submission has seemed to fade away. Even in Brazil where Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is king there were no submissions in the entire night. The casual fan has been happy to see this as the Knockouts have gone up and the standup fights are increasing. This is not MMA however as MMA is about the total of every style of fighting including the wrestling aspect and this wrestling aspect can be just as exciting as the standup game. The ground game has disappeared as of late but in the Battle on the Bayou it was made clear early in the undercard that the ground game is back.

UFN: Battle on the Bayou Preview

In a strange week where a #1 contender in the welterweight division was stripped of his title shot the UFC is finally back to fighting. With Nick Diaz losing his title shot due to a no-show at the press conferences for UFC 137 Carlos Condit earned the fight. With these two fighters at the top for now there are still a number of fighters that are looking to get that shot at one of the best fighters in the world in GSP. With the welterweight division in full focus the Battle on the Bayou fits right in as two of the top welterweight fighters will face off.
