2015 Starts with a Bang for UFC (UFC 182 Review)

Heading into UFC 182 the talk concentrated on the rivalry between light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones and his challenger, Daniel Cormier. Both fighters did not like each other very much and they certainly didn’t hide it heading into the fight. With one fight between the two cancelled due to an injury to Jones there was plenty of time for fans to find out that these two fighters were happy to get in the octagon and beat each other up.

The UFC returns for another year of fights and they are kicking things off with what could be the biggest fight of the year. That is hard to say since it is also the first fight of the year and there is plenty of time for big matchups. What makes this possibly different from all of them is the true hate between the main event fighters. This fight was supposed to take place a lot earlier until everything seemed to go wrong for the UFC. First it was the rematch that everyone wanted to see as Jon Jones was set to defend his Light Heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson for the second time.

There is something about Brazilian fighters that makes them these mysterious athletes that have great legends. Before they enter the UFC they cut their teeth in the lower rankings of the Brazilian fight world and in that time gain a lot of talk. When they are ready to make their debut in the UFC the legend surrounding them can be great. They are fighters that have black belts and world championships and massive undefeated streaks. That can sometimes intimidate other fighters in the UFC as they prepare to fight these legends.

The last time Jon Jones entered the octagon it was against the man that man considered the greatest challenge to the title. Coming into the fight Jones was considered one of the top three fighters in the world regardless of weight class. He would take on Alexander Gustafsson who was the only fighter that could match the length of Jones and could potentially limit Jones in his striking. The fight would turn out to be one of the best fights of the year as Gustafsson met all of the expectations.

The talk going in to UFC 165 surrounded the significance of the main even no matter who would win. If Alexander Gustafsson could get past Jones it would be the second time in the last few months where the #1 Pound for Pound fighter in the UFC lost his belt. It would also be the first time a European fighter held a belt in the UFC.

The UFC Light Heavyweight division has been one of the most competitive divisions in the UFC with nobody holding the title for very long.

There are certain fighters in the UFC who separate UFC fans between those who hate them and those who love them. One of these fighters is Chael Sonnen who seems to bring out the hate and the love from every fan. The reason for this is fairly simple as he is the loudest fighter in the UFC which many times can rub people the wrong way.

Undercard outshines once again (UFC 152 Review)

The UFC has seen a strange trend lately as the Pay per View events have been less than great while free fights seem to be the better fights. Since signing the deal with Fox the UFC has put on more free fights than ever before and they are impressing many. The point of these free fights is to get new fans to purchase the Pay-per-Views that are the backbone of the UFC.
