Another Impressive Night (UFC 184 Review)

The UFC has always been full of great fighters who become legends in front of our eyes as they are clearly the best fight of their generation. These fighters are easy to see as they fight and seem to be so far ahead of everyone else that the only thing left to do is to wait for someone to catch up. The likes of GSP and Anderson Silva are likely gone but a new generation has taken hold in the UFC with Jon Jones, Jose Aldo, and Demetrious Johnson leading the way.

UFC 184 Preview

The women will take the centre stage in a big way at UFC 184 as the Women’s Bantamweight division takes focus in the main and co-main events. It is a long way from where they were only a few short years ago when Dana White claimed that women would never fight in the UFC. Now they are the top two billed fights on a pay-per-view event and although it came thanks to injuries the night will still be a feature of the best of the women’s bantamweight division.

Statements for the Champs (UFC 175 Review)

When Lyoto Machida entered the UFC in 2007 he was considered one of the greatest fighters in the light heavyweight division. He would enter the UFC with an undefeated record and a style that had never been seen before. He was a trailblazer in the octagon as he was the first fighter to bring karate into MMA. It has happened multiple times in the UFC where a fighter brings something so unique into the promotion that nobody can figure them out. It was the case when Royce Gracie brought BJJ into the UFC or when Tito Ortiz brought a wrestling ground and pound style to the promotion.

UFC 175 Preview

When you beat the man that most people consider to be the greatest fighter in UFC history a big target is painted on your back. That is the case for Chris Weidman as he would beat Anderson Silva not once but twice in 2013. It was long thought that Anderson Silva would never lose the title and that he would retire as the greatest champion in UFC history. Then came along Chris Weidman who would take full advantage of Silva’s mistakes and his cockiness. The first fight between the two would see Silva begin trying to goat Weidman into getting aggressive and making a mistake.
