Take Your Pick! UFC 199: Rockhold vs. Bisping II

John Michael Edwards

Published

on

While having multiple title fights on one card is nothing new, UFC 199 will present two that hold a bit of extra significance. When challengers Uriah Faber and Michael Bisping step into the Octagon against their bitter rivals Dominick Cruz and Luke Rockhold respectively, both fighters could be looking at their last chances at wearing UFC gold. While former WEC and KOTC champion Faber has come just short of winning the title in three attempts, Bisping has finally earned his chance at being the top man in the Middleweight division, and neither is the proverbial “spring chicken”.

The main card also features bouts including rising star Max Holloway taking on Ricardo Lamas, long time veteran Dan Henderson versus Hector Lombard, making his return to Middleweight, with Lightweights Dustin Poirier and Bobby Green kicking off the Pay-Per-View portion of the event.

 

Luke Rockhold is much more well rounded than Michael Bisping in my opinion. Rockhold’s counter right hook is a perfect tool against Bisping if he steps in and if the fight goes to the ground, Rockhold has a clear advantage there. Expect a finish within two.

-Tony Sisombath

 

It has taken 10 years for Michael Bisping to go from TUF winner to a title shot and he won’t let it slip away without a real fight. As always I expect Bisping to bring it inside the octagon, to display the heart and grit that has made him a stalwart of the MW division. Employing a similar gameplan to the one used versus Anderson Silva is a must, he cannot rush in against a dangerous man like Rockhold. Deciding whether he is going to go for the 5 round grind or try and finish it as early as possible is also key for the Brit, as he’s unlikely to win a decision if he goes for the KO. With the right choices and a bit of luck, it will be #AndNew on Saturday and the UK will have its first UFC Champion.

Published

on

Polish women’s federation Ladies Fight Night is going to celebrate their second birthday this year on the 15th to 17th of December. Two days, two events with a lot of great bouts.

LFN in Poland is being titled the new Invicta FC. The Polish owners created this federation to give European women a chance to fight on a big platform.

Hosting their first ever event in December 2015, LFN will hold two great cards next week, that will feature women who have fought under many prestigious promotions, such as the UFC, Invicta, Bellator, Glory, and Kunlun.

Two days of fantastic fights, intensified by a double dose of sports impressions. The name is not accidental, LFN 7 / LFN 8 combines two events, during which the best Polish fighters will be shown, as well as the best fighters from Europe (including France, Sweden, Italy, the Czech Republic and Romania)

The stakes are high, and we are electrified by the clashes between warriors such as Żaneta Cieśla vs Silvia La Notte and Patricia Axling vs. Cindy Silvestri. Mainly due to their vastness of their experience in the cage.

In the fight of the evening, the talented Romanian Cristina Stanciu will face Magdaléna Šormovádo. Stanciu fought twice in the UFC, but she was unfortunately cut from the promotion after suffering consecutive losses to Cortney Casey and Maryna Moroz.

Judyta Rymarzak vs Marta Waliczek is an amazing fight between two experienced kickboxers. Both making their pro MMA debuts on the night, we will witness a one-of-a-kind duel between two kickboxing perfectionists, as they look to transcend their skills into the MMA world.
