UFC Press Conference for UFC 149

Check out the UFC 149 press conference held recently in Alberta Canada.  The press release covers many topics on the UFC and its Canadian affiliates.

The press conference comes after the announcement that UFC 149 will be held in Calgary, Alberta at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday, July 21 7pm/10pm PTET where champion, and pound for pound contender, Jose ‘Junior’ Aldo (21-1-0) will face Erik ‘New Breed’ Koch (13-1-0).

Also announced to be on the card are Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua (20-6-0) vs Thiago Silva (14-3-0, 1nc), Minotauro Nogueira (33-8-1, 1nc) vs Cheick Kongo (27-7-2), Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping (23-4-0) vs Tim ‘The Barbarian’ Boetsch (15-4-0), Court ‘The Crusher’ McGee (13-2-0) vs Nick ‘The Promise’ Ring (12-1-0), and more.  This promises to be a stacked card and July can’t come fast enough.

The Best Pound for Pound fighter in the UFC: Poll

 

It used to be that the best pound for pound UFC fighter was between two men, George ‘Rush’ St-Pierre and Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva.  Recent stars have since shined too bright to be ignored and UFC fighters Jon ‘Bones’ Jones (16-1) and Jose Aldo (21-1) must be mentioned when considering a pound for pound champion.

With GSP and The Spider comming off of injuries it seems the UFC is still not suffering from a lack of talent.  Younger fighters keep stepping into the lime light and displaying an arsenal of mma skills.  It’s very interesting to see where the future for these fighters will lead.

UFC 142 Results

Jose Aldo vs Chad Mendes

Jose Aldo retains his belt after a spectacular finish.  A knee to challenger Chad Mendes’ face ends the night for the young fighter, as a first round KO is on the books with only one second remaining in the round.

Vitor Belfort vs Anthony Johnson

It appears that no matter what weight class Johnson is officially going to be classified he still can’t edge out a win over crowd favorite Vitor Belfort.  Belfort wins the fight via rear naked choke in the first round with only eleven seconds left.

Rousimar Palhares vs Mike Massenzio

A Palhares heal hook puts an end to Mike Massenzio early in the first round as Massenzio taps with only a minute and three seconds passing.

Erick Silva vs Carlos Prater

Carlos Prater is the winner of this match, due to a controversial call by UFC referee Mario Yamasaki.  The official decision comes early in the first round where Silva is disqualified due to strikes to the back of his opponents head.

Edson Barboza vs Terry Etim

Barboza wins this fight in spectacular fashion as a spinning wheel kick lands flush on Etim ending the fight in the third round by way of knockout.  This one will surely make the highlight reels.

UFC 142 weigh in

UFC 142 kicks off with the official weigh ins, readying for the card to begin tomorrow, live on pay per view, from Rio de Janeiro.

It appears that Anthony Johnson was not able to make weight at the official weigh in coming in at 196lbs. That’s eleven pounds over the division limit in which he was attempting to cut to. Which leaves us wondering, what will this result in for the young fighter?

UFC 142: Will Aldo Remain the Champ?

Jose Aldo will be fighting Chad Mendes for the UFC featherweight title on Saturday, January 14, 2012 at UFC 142.  Jose Aldo (20-1) seems to present a unique challenge to his division.  Having successfully defended his title twice in the UFC, against game competitors Kenny Florian and Mark Hominick, Jose Aldo may be difficult to find the next big challenge in his weight class. Aldo has already had his share of battles in the WEC with many of the top ranked fighters in the UFCs featherweight division.

Chad Mendes (11-0) brings, the always welcome, nostalgia that only an undefeated fighter can bring.  The number two ranked UFC featherweight, Chad Mendes, has lacked a little stopping power, compared to his opponent.  In Mendes’ eleven fights seven have gone to decision.  This may make some people feel partial to Aldo’s chances but the truth remains there is always a fighters chance.

Fight fans across the world will find out Saturday, January 14, 2012 who will hold the title in the UFCs newest division.
