UFC Fight Night Johnson vs. Bader: Fight to Watch

Griffin Tobey

Published

on

Tonight’s card featuring a main event that will likely determine the next number one contender in the Light Heavyweight division. Ryan “Darth” Bader puts his five fight win streak on the line as he faces former title challenger, and knockout artist, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson. There is sure to be fireworks in this bout, the fight will likely be determined by how effective the wrestling of Ryan Bader is, and if he is able to stay away from the heavy hands of “Rumble”. There are quite a few very solid fights on this card throughout the prelims, as well as the main card.

 

Honorable Mention 1: Rafael Natal vs. Kevin Casey

The very intriguing middleweight fight on the preliminary card. Kevin Casey has fought three times in the UFC and holds a 1-0 record. He unfortunately has two no contests on his record, while seeking his second UFC win. His opponent, Rafael Natal, is a very talented mixed martial artist who holds a three fight UFC win streak at the moment with wins over Chris Camozzi, Tom Watson, and Uriah Hall. He is currently ranked fifteen in the UFC Middleweight rankings, and hopes to continue his rise with a big win over “King” Kevin Casey. This is sure to be a very good bout between two men with a lot to gain with a big win.

 

Honorable Mention 2:Tarec Saffiedine vs. Jake Ellenberger

Jake Ellenberger probably saved his UFC career when he submitted Josh Koscheck in incredible fashion last February. The UFC veteran was on a 3 fight losing streak and in need of a win to continue relevance. He followed that up with an unfortunate loss to Stephen Thompson. Ellenberger is looking to get back to winning ways when he matches up against Tarec Saffiedine. Saffiedine, the number eleven ranked welterweight in the UFC is hoping to make his way up the totem pole with a big win over a name like Ellenberger.

 

Fight to Watch: Sage Northcutt vs. Bryan Barbarena

Sage Northcutt made his UFC debut in October of 2015. This will be his third fight in the UFC. If that does not say something about how athletic, and how young he is then I do not know what would. Northcutt is currently on course to become one of the biggest stars in mixed martial arts. He is young, and extremely talented. He finished both of his prior opponents, and will be looking to continue that streak when he takes on Barbarena. Bryan Barbarena is definitely his toughest opponent to date. Holding a 10-3 record, Barbarena is looking to end the hype surrounding Northcutt with a big win. This is sure to be an absolute war in the lightweight division between two men on the upswing.

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.
