Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida are set to collide at UFC 175, as ‘The All-American’ will look to make the second defense of the middleweight title he won from Anderson Silva at UFC 162. ‘The Dragon’ is looking like a new beast at 185 pounds, having demolished Mark Munoz in one, and beating Gegard Mousasi by decision. Stylistically, Machida/Weidman is very interesting; Weidman’s wrestling prowess is enough to give anyone a headache, but Machida has outstanding TDD and is extremely...

The UFC delivered another fantastic night of MMA action last night with Fight Night 40 which turned out to be one of the best events of 2014 so far. On my last "Finish of the Night" poll, for UFC 172, I said that may have been the toughest one for you LowKickers to pick with so many highlight stoppages on the Baltimore card. But you guys have got a tough decision again this week as UFN 40 produced seven ruthless finishes; all coming by way of KO/TKO. UFC 172's "Finish of the Night" winner went to former Strikeforce...

Matt Brown will make his return to the Octagon tomorrow night to take on top Brazilian prospect Erick Silva after nearly nine months away from the UFC recovering from a back injury. Prior to Brown's layoff, the 33-year old had been ripping his way through the welterweight division with six wins in his last six fights; five of which came by way of knockout. The streak had earned him a title eliminator against Carlos Condit at UFC on Fox 9 but unfortunately for "The Immortal" his injury kept him from competing. On...

On August 2 at UFC 176, Chad Mendes has the chance to avenge the only loss of his MMA career to featherweight kingpin; Jose Aldo. The two first met two years ago, at UFC 142, where Aldo added another spectacular knockout to his highlight highlight reel. However, since that night Mendes has looked like a different fighter all together and rattled off five straight wins, four of which were knockouts. Aldo has remained his dominant self and defended his world title three times since his first encounter with...

With UFC 173 just around the corner, we look forward to one of the most stacked events of the year so far. The headlining bout on the card is a bantamweight title tilt between the current boss Renan Barao, and surging contender T.J. Dillashaw. The champion has been putting the screws to the division for a while now, but facing an unorthodox and hungry young contender in ‘The Viper’. Co-main for the May 24 card is a light-heavyweight match between MMA legend Dan Henderson, and new-breed beast Daniel...

Cain Velasquez will look to make the third consecutive defense of his heavyweight title at UFC 180, and the man he faces is none other than submission whizz Fabricio Werdum. The two are set to coach the first season of TUF: Mexico later in the year, and ‘Vai Cavalo’ is riding four straight wins ahead of his first UFC title shot. In the aftermath of Werdum’s win against Travis Browne, many fans questioned how the Brazilian would fare against Velasquez. The champion’s outstanding cardio...

Jiu-Jitsu is often accredited as the base of all MMA, with the legendary Gracie family utilizing there style to win early UFC events, and the roots of the art going back many centuries. The sport of MMA has evolved so much since the dark ages, meaning modern fighters can no longer be as one dimensional as they were at say UFC 1. A pure grappler like Royce was back in the 90’s, or at least a dominant one, is hard to come by these days. Fighters like Frank Mir and Fabricio Werdum have had great success...

POLL: Who Deserves "Finish Of The Night" From UFC 172?

Posted on April 27, 2014, 11:12 AM by Buster Evans
The UFC topped of a great month of MMA action last night inside Maryland's Baltimore Arena putting on of the best cards of the year. UFC 172 featured ten action packed fights which included six spectacular finishes. I think this may be the toughest "Finish of the Night" poll for you LowKickers to determine yet. Last weeks poll, from UFC on Fox 11, was won by fan-favorite Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone for his come from behind submission win over dangerous Brazilian Edson Barboza on the events main card. Cerrone...

Photo: Tommy Gilligan for USA TODAY Sports Last night (Sat., April 26, 2014), UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones went a long way towards silencing all of his doubters who still believed he actually lost to Alexander Gustafsson in their UFC 165 classic last September. Dismantling Glover Teixeira with precise striking over the course of five rounds in the UFC 172 main event from Baltimore, Maryland, Jones showed why he truly is the finest mixed martial artist on the planet today. His...

Former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz has had the worst run of luck in recent MMA memory; ‘The Dominator’ was set to return from a two-year hiatus in early 2014, and waiting for him was interim boss Renan Barao. In stepped the injury curse, in the form of a groin tear, and Cruz was left with no option but to vacate his title. Barao went on to win the battle for the vacant belt at UFC 169, as he TKO’d Urijah Faber in the first round of their second bout. Word is that Cruz is back...

Last nights UFC on Fox 11 card was filled with great fights from top-to-bottom. UFC on Fox 11 went down at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, featuring a main event between top heavyweight contenders Fabricio Werdum and Travis Browne. The last "Finish of the Night" poll, for TUF: Nations Finale was won by K.J. Noons for his knockout of Sam Stout in the nights preliminary card. Noons topped the poll with 80% of the votes. Second in the poll was Dustin Poirier for his stoppage over Akira Corrasani on the...

Overall, The Ultimate Fighter: Nations Finale turned out to be another great event for the UFC, delivering some top quality fights. TUF: Nations Finale took place at the Colisee Pepsi arena in Qubec City, Quebec, Canada and featured a main event between middleweights Michael Bisping and Tim Kennedy. I never made a poll for Saturdays "Finsh of the Night" winner at UFC Fight Night 39 but, in my opinion, it easily had to go to Roy Nelson for knocking Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira out cold in the cards main event.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira returned to action last night in Abu Dhabi, looking to reignite his glory years at Fight Night 39 against Roy Nelson. Unfortunately for ‘Big Nog’, he was the recipient of a brutal first round knockout, courtesy of a ‘Big Country’ right hand. The KO marks the second fight in a row that Nogueira has been finished. Before joining the UFC back in 2007, Nogueira had only lost four times, and had never been stopped in competition. Since that time, ‘Minotauro’...
