Ariel Helwani reported yesterday on UFC Tonight that it is possible to see Tarec Saffiedine vs Rory MacDonald on October 4th as the main event of the Halifax card. Would love to see this fight as I believe Tarec is underrated due to the infrequency he is able to compete at. Hopefully this fight gets made and the winner would surely be set up for a title shot next.
Always nice to see the lightweight king enjoying some time with the most important girl in his life! Very excited to see Showtime and Gilbert Melendez go at it! Any early predictions for that lightweight contest?
Don’t mess with that beautiful Brazilian octagon girl!
This is a big fight for Le who hasn’t fought in almost two years, but is still coming off an epic KO win of Rich Franklin in Macau, China, so it is no wonder the UFC decided to bring him back for their second trip to the city. That is a long time to be out of the cage for anyone, let alone at 42 years of age, and though he has been training he has a stiff test ahead in Michael Bisping. This should be an exciting stand up fight and the winner will move closer to the top of a stacked middleweight division.
The Australian Octagon girl is always nice to look at!
The big mouthed Brit joined Kenny Florian and the UFC Tonight crew to talk about his upcoming fight against Cung Le and continue the beef with former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold. Kenny does a great job on the show but UFC Tonight just isn’t the same without Chael.
Lil Heathen is packing some serious firepower right there as he spends some time yesterday with some members of the US Coast Guard! All the best to Jeremy, excited to see who is next in line for him.
Frankie Edgar is still high off his impressive finish of MMA legend BJ Penn and the birth of his first daughter. Needless to say things are going well for The Answer. Not being in a hardcore training camp the former lightweight champ goes on a mountain bike ride with his buddy as a different form of cardio. Frankie should pay close attention to this weekends fights because if Dennis Bermudez beats Clay Guida on Saturday that will be seven in a row for the TUF finalist and he could be next for Frankie. Talk about a high paced fight. Has the featherweight division ever been more exciting??
