UFC on FOX 12 LowKick Staff Predictions

Posted on July 25, 2014, 08:48 AM by Mike Drahota
Robbie Lawler vs. Matt Brown: Mike Drahota: Obviously this is one of the hard-hitting bouts the UFC could have put together on paper, and it promises to be a great showcase of MMA on national television. Lawler has looked the best he ever has since re-debuting at welterweight. He’s hell-bent on getting another shot at Johny Hendricks and his championship, and I think it would take the equivalent of a large truck full of dynamite to rip that goal away from him. Brown has looked more than impressive during...

Nick Diaz is one of the best welterweights in the UFC. However, he hasn’t fought in the senior circuit since March of last year (2013). Post his unanimous decision loss to (then) reigning champion George St. Pierre at UFC 158, Diaz has opted to sit on the sidelines for the last 16 months in semi-retirement, declaring that he was unhappy with his current contract. Sticking to his mantra of wanting more money to fight, Diaz has been unable to secure a new deal with UFC President Dana White, who, for the...

Amir Sadollah was the winner of season seven of “The Ultimate Fighter.” He burst onto the scene with no pre-existing MMA record and won the show by defeating UFC notables Matt Brown and C.B. Dollaway. Last in the ring in September of 2012, the 33-year-old Sadollah is now prepared to revisit his 6 – 4 UFC career. Announced by the senior circuit’s UK division today (July 24, 2014), Sadollah will be facing off against fellow welterweight Niko Musoke at UFC Fight Night (UFN) 53. The bout...

UFC bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw shocked the world with his fifth round finish of formerly dominant titleholder Renan Barao in the main event of May 24’s UFC 173 from Las Vegas. Going into the short notice bout as a massive underdog, Dillashaw rocked “The Baron” with a huge overhand right early on in the bout, a punch that Barao never seemed to recover from. Speaking to the media in his native Brazil, Barao described just how out of it he was (via MMA Fighting): "I remember everything...

UFC Fight Night 51 is shaping up as a card for MMA nostalgics, as we learned today that Paulo Thiago will now face UFC old schooler Joe Riggs. Mike Rhodes was originally scheduled to face the tough nosed Brazilian on his home turf, but has been injured and scratched from the card. Riggs' last appearance for the UFC was a crushing KO loss to Diego Sanchez in 2006. 'Diesel' holds notable wins over Nick Diaz, Chris Lytle, Herb Dean (seriously), Joe Doerksen, and Kendall Grove among others. He was also one half...

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira will return after 14 months away from the sport as he takes on hungry light-heavyweight monster Anthony Johnson. Nogueira's skillful submissions may win the day if he is able to drag this fight to the mat, but Johnson has that brutal one punch finishing power that comes from being a natural heavyweight. Odd to think that Johnson once competed as a welterweight for the UFC, although he seldom made anywhere near 170 pounds. Another factoid for this scrap is that 'Lil Nog' has fought...

No. 5-ranked UFC heavyweight Stipe Miocic saw what would have been by far the biggest fight of his career dissipate when former champion Junior dos Santos was forced out of their scheduled The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil 3 headliner in May. Instead, the Cleveland, Ohio, native backed into a squash match with light heavyweight slugger Fabio Maldonado, finishing the mismatched fight in 35 seconds and leaving fans wondering why it was even booked in the first place. Possessing three straight wins in a talent–shallow...

Powerful No. 9-ranked UFC lightweight Edson Barboza got back in the win column with a highly impressive first round stoppage of veteran Evan Dunham in the co-main event of last Wednesday night’s (July 16, 2014) UFC Fight Night 45 from Atlantic City, New Jersey. He’s now won four out of his past five bouts, but that one loss, a UFC on FOX 11 submission at the hands of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, still resonates deeply in his mind. It was a fight that the highly talented “Junior”...

UFC middleweight contender Michael Bisping has his hands full as he prepares to face Cung Le at UFC Fight Night 48. Scheduled to face the Sanshou black belt in Macau, China, 'The Count' would do well to keep his focus on the American Kickboxing Academy student. All this, and Bisping is still looking towards a potential bout with another former Strikeforce standout in Luke Rockhold. 'The Count' and 'Rocky' have been trading barbs for a while now, and Bisping threw another one out during a recent appearance...

‘Evil’ Eyes Holly Holm’s Octagon Debut

Posted on July 23, 2014, 11:25 PM by Brian Cox
27-year-old, Jessica “Evil” Eye is currently ranked No. 6 in the UFC’s bantamweight division and although 0 – 1 – 1 (NC) in the senior circuit, the 10 – 2 professional Ohio native believes she’s the one to welcome Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm to the UFC. Stating two weeks ago (July 11, 2014) on Inside MMA that she’s never picked her opponents and she “doesn’t really want to start now,” the undefeated (7 – 0)...

As news broke Wednesday night (July 23, 2014) that Alexander Gustafsson was a scratch for his September 27 title fight with light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones, the UFC quickly filled the UFC 178 vacancy with an equally impressive match, as the senior circuit tapped the No. 2 ranked 205-pound behemoth Daniel Cormier as “The Mauler’s” replacement. This is a fight that has been in the making for a long-time and one that Cormier has personally sought out. Indeed, Cormier has done all that he...
