Decisions Dominate Super Saturday (UFC 169 Review)

Urijah Faber was one of the very first faces of MMA when he was a part of the WEC and began his sponsorship deal with Amp Energy Drink. For many he would be the first exposure to the sport as he was the guy in the WEC and was the guy when MMA began to take hold of more fans. He would get to this level in large part because he was one of the best lighter weight fighters in the world and would prove it as the WEC Featherweight Champion in 2006.

It has been a long time since the Bantamweight Division has had a true title fight as one of the strangest stories in the UFC has played out in the division. Dominick Cruz was on his way to becoming one of the most dominant champions in the UFC. In 2011 Cruz would face Urijah Faber in the first ever Bantamweight championship fight for the UFC. It would be the start of the WEC merger into the UFC and two great WEC fighters would get the chance to earn a UFC title.

This week the UFC will get their first fight to do this, although not quite the super fight many had been hoping for. In the past few years many divisions have been cleaned out by dominant champions who have left nobody to challenge them.

Featherweights Put on a Show in Brazil (UFC 142)

The UFC has never seen a Featherweight or a Bantamweight main event since the start of the new divisions. The reason for this is that these lighter weights tend not to put on the most explosive fights, in terms of finishes. They do but on some electric fights though with speed and quickness that is not seen in any other division.
