Sunday night will see the UFC make its first foray into Croatia, with a Fight Pass card in Zagreb. The headline fight is a heavyweight contest between a former champion in Junior dos Santos, and an aspiring contender in Ben Rothwell. Coming into this fight, these two heavyweights couldn’t be further apart in their form with dos Santos going 2-3 in his last five fights and Ben Rothwell on a four-fight win streak dating back to 2013.
Walk off KO’s are the new black… Or something. I don’t know. What I do know is Mark Hunt provides some of the best KO’s in the UFC if not MMA, and Saturday night was no different.
After having spent a combined time of 27 years competing in Mixed Martial Arts, you’d have thought that Mark Hunt and Frank Mir would have met long before this Sunday evening, when the two veterans are set to square off in Brisbane, Australia.
Just before I went to away on a trip this last weekend, I managed to grab hold of local Amateur fighter Harry Davies and get a few of his thoughts.
It looks like Cage Warriors Fighting Championship is back…
While history may remember Conor McGregor’s trip to Welterweight as a misadventure it does nothing to diminish his incredible achievements in the UFC so far. Arriving from Cage Warriors as a two-weight champ, McGregor made the step up in competition with ease. Not just stealing the show in the Octagon, but establishing himself as a true star outside of it, making millions of dollars in the process. Such stardom isn’t easily created or extinguished.
There will have been plenty of people jumping out of their seats cheering when Nate Diaz forced Conor McGregor to submit in the main event at UFC 196 – and they had a good reason to.
