UFC/MMA Update

UFC/MMA Update - Rumors Swirl Regarding Fedor’s Next Opponent and UFC Odds Already Up on Lesnar vs. Velasquez

Bookmark and Share by D.S. Williamson

The rumors continue to swirl regarding who Fedor Emelianenko, arguably the greatest fighter in MMA history who was upset by Fabricio Werdum in his last bout, will fight next.

Strikeforce is going to sit down with co-promotional partner M-1 Global very soon, possibly this weekend to discuss the final event on their existing contract. That final fight could be Fedor in a rematch with Werdum, Werdum has said he would agree to it, or Fedor against Antonio “Big Foot” Silva, Sergei Kharitinov, or Alistair Overeem.

Without a doubt, the biggest event moneymaker for both promotional companies would be a fight between Fedor and Overeen. Overeen absolutely demolished Brett Rogers in his last fight. That’s the one that I will be looking forward to.

I don’t believe Silva or Kharitinov have much of a shot against Fedor unless, of course, Fedor’s loss to Werdum was a true example of diminished skills and not the case of a great fighter having a bad night. Kharitinov is 16 and 4 and would get pummeled by Fedor. Silva is 14 and 2 and does have fans but Emelianenko is much more experienced.

There’s nothing wrong with avenging his loss to Werdum, but Fedor, if he truly feels he’s only got 2 maybe 3 more fights left in his career, might want go for the most bucks and that would be a bout against Alistair Overeem.

Lesnar vs. Velasquez Battle on October 23rd at UFC 121

Although it’s a few months away, buzz has already started to build regarding the Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez match on October 23rd. UFC President Dana White wasted no time putting together a match between 2 of his biggest draws.

The 8 and 0 Velasquez was last seen knocking out Minotaur Nogueira at UFC 110. The fact that he absolutely destroyed Nogueira makes him an exciting opponent for the tough Lesnar.

Lesnar, of course, took down Shane Carwin at UFC 116 earlier in July after taking a year off due to an illness. The UFC/MMA odds makers have installed Lesnar as a -175 favorite to beat Cain Velasquez who’s fighting odds are +145.

Silva and Chonen Ready to Throw Down at UFC 117

Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen are ready to throw it down at UFC 117. UFC 117 is scheduled for August 7th.

Silva, arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world is a big -450 favorite to beat down the real estate agent whose twittering led him to having to drop out of a political race.

Supposedly, Chael tweeted that Brazilian MMA manager Ed Soares, had better “pray to whatever Demon effigy you prance and dance in front of with your piglet tribe of savages that I decide not to CRUCIFY you.” I can see how a lot of voters in Oregon, where Sonnen resides, would take offense to that.

To me, it’s just appears to be, albeit stupid, in the cage trash talking and should add to what many expect to be an interesting, if one-sided, fight. The dance that Sonnen was referring to, Capoeira, has led to 26 victories for Silva.

We’ll see if Sonnen can back up his words or if the favored Anderson Silva will beat the rest of Sonnen’s idiotic tweets out of him.
