Not All Things Change in Seattle (UFC on Fox 5 Review)

The UFC went to Seattle on Saturday in a fight card that could easily change the future of the UFC. It was not a fight that would change the path of the company like UFC 100 or UFC on Fox 1 would but for three weight classes it would determine the near future. For the Light Heavyweight and Welterweight divisions UFC on Fox 5 would show the future take on the past. In both fights a young up and coming star would take on the old guard in an attempt to show everyone that the new breed was ready to take over.

The UFC continues its deal with the Fox sports channels this weekend and like usual the free fight looks to be better than most pay per views. The UFC has been stuck in a pattern as of late as they have regularly put together great free fight cards and when it comes to the paid fights they tend to fall short.

The UFC saw their third venture into primetime network TV with UFC on Fox 3 this past weekend. The UFC’s partnership with Fox has been wildly successful as they continue to host a number of free events all featuring some great fighters. This UFC on Fox 3 was no different as the card featured two fights that would reshape the respective division.

The UFC will return to network television this weekend when Nate Diaz takes on Jim Miller on UFC on Fox 3. Diaz and Miller represent one of the most competitive divisions in the UFC as it stands right now. With the rest of the divisions either in flux or dominated by one fighter, the Lightweight division is wide open.

500 lbs of Excitement

The UFC finished off their year with two of the biggest fighters in the UFC facing off at UFC 141. Brock Lesnar who stands at 6’3” and weighs in at 265 lbs would take on Allistair Overeem who stands at 6’5” and weighs in at 256 lbs. Both fighters are two of the biggest fighters the UFC had ever seen and they would face off in the octagon for a chance at the UFC Heavyweight Title.

UFC 141 Preview

The UFC has continued to add smaller weight classes with the announcement of the Flyweight (125 lbs) Tournament to start next year. Although there are more and more light fighters one of the biggest draws will always be the Heavyweight Division. This week the UFC might have to put some more reinforcement in the octagon because the Heavyweight division will be in full swing.

The Future is Now

The saying goes “You are not a champion until you defend your belt” and this is what Jon Jones, the youngest UFC champion in UFC history, was faced with. The Light Heavyweight championship had exchanged hands more than any other belt in recent history as since Chuck Liddell had it only one fight has ever defended it successfully. In the era of GSPs and Silvas the fact that a championship could change hands so much is almost unthinkable. The Light Heavyweight division is one of the most competitive in the UFC but when Jon Jones beat Mauricio Rua for the belt many believed it was the beginning of the Light Heavyweight lockdown. Jones had a challenge ahead of him however as the champion would take on the last man to defend the belt successfully in Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
