This weekend there is an absolutely stacked card headlined by the return of one of the best fighters in UFC history, Jon Jones. Jones will be fighting the surging Ovince Saint Preux for the Interim Light Heavyweight title, with the winner fighting current champion Daniel Cormier. The event is co-headlined by a very exciting Flyweight bout between one of the most dominant champions in UFC history, Demetrious Johnson, and Henry Cejudo. Throughout the card, it is one of the most exciting cards of the year and it promises to be a very exciting card full of great fights.

FIGHT TO WATCH: Robert Whittaker vs. Rafael Natal

There is a very intriguing fight on the main card between Robert Whittaker and Rafael Natal. Both men put 4 fight win streaks on the line with a chance to continue to work their way up the UFC ranks. The winner of this fight could very well end up in the top five of the division, as Whittaker is ranked 7th and Natal is ranked 13th. This is sure to be a very good fight at 185 pounds on the main card.

 

HONORABLE MENTION 1: Carla Esparza vs. Juliana Lima

Former Women’s Strawweight champion Carla Esparza returns to the cage for the first time since losing to Joanna Jedrzejczyk in a title fight more than a year ago. Esparza will be looking to reestablish her place as one of the best Strawweights in the world when she takes on the 8-2 Juliana Lima. “Ju Thai” made her UFC debut against Jedrzejczyk and lost in a 3 round decision. Since that fight, she has gone 2-0 in the UFC, with wins over Nina Ansaroff and Ericka Almeida. This is a very intriguing fight in the UFC’s newest division, as it is a bout between two women with a lot to gain from a win.

HONORABLE MENTION 2: Sergio Pettis vs. Chris Kelades

The final fight on the Fox Sports 1 prelims is an absolute banger at the Flyweight division. Sergio Pettis, a former bantamweight, is 1-1 since dropping to Flyweight and is one of the bigger names at 125 pounds, sharing the name of his older brother, who is also fighting on the card. Chris Kelades is 2-1 in the UFC, his last fight resulting in a win over Chris Beal. This is sure to be an incredibly exciting fight due to the name value of the two fighters as well as their willingness to trade and go to war in the cage.

Bellator 185- How to Watch, Times and Fight Card

Published

on

Bellator is once again heading to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville Connecticut, and this time they are bringing with them one of the most anticipated former UFC fighter turned Bellator stars’ debut. Gegard Mousasi will be making his first appearance in the Bellator cage against a former Bellator champion in Alexander Shlemenko. Although this event has lost some of its star power over the last several weeks, it is still stacked and you can bet that the main event will bring some fireworks.

Earlier in the month, it was announced that King Mo had suffered an injury that had forced him out of his co-main event fight with former middleweight champion Liam McGeary. Bellator worked quickly to secure a replacement opponent for McGeary in Bubba McDaniels. Unfortunately for McDaniels and the fans alike, McGeary had later suffered an injury of his own and the fight was removed from the card.

This left a spot open in the co-main event slot, which would be filled by a welterweight matchup between Brennan Ward and David Rickels. Just four days out from the fight, Bellator announced that Ward had also become injured and the fight has been removed from the card as well. The main card has been shuffled around and the welterweight bout between Neiman Gracie and Zak Bucia will now serve as the co-main event.
