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.

UFC 182 Preview

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.

A Night of First in Japan (UFC Fight Night 52 Review)

The UFC travelled to Japan once again as they brought the show to where MMA got its start. They would feature a fighter that had spent his fair share of time in Japan while fighting through the early days of the sport. In those days there were really no other places to fight other than Japan. The country brought MMA to a new level, one that made the fighters superstars and paid them well. In the USA at the time MMA was still a basement bawl type of sport that got little recognition in the public.

The UFC will continue to showcase one of the most exciting divisions in the sport as two more heavyweights face-off in the octagon. Las weekend Andrei Arlovski announced his return to the division in beating Antonio Silva. For the win Arlovski moved up the rankings to #7 as he is ready to come for the title. He will have plenty to go through to get there though including the two heavyweights that will headline UFC Fight Night 52. Roy Nelson, ranked #8, and Mark Hunt, ranked #6, have been working their way up the rankings for a while now.
