Cub Swanson and Erik Perez get some work in as they both prepare for their fights in June. Cub will be headlining an event on June 28th against Jeremy Stephens while Perez will be squaring off against Bryan Caraway on June 7th. Huge fight for Cub as a win over Stephens will be just another step towards a title shot for the featherweight stud. Exciting fight for Perez as he will certainly be the fan favorite on June 7th. Caraway is no slouch in the cage and will certainly be a big test for Erik. Big things to come for the two Jackson/Winkeljohn fighters!
Jon Jones’ April 26th bout against Glover Teixeira in Baltimore, MD is fast approaching and Jon is seen here finishing up his last day of sparring. Glover is a huge test for Jon and has not lost a fight in nearly a decade. With that said, Glover has never been in the cage with Jon Jones and on April 26th we will see who the better man is. Predictions anyone???
UFC women’s bantamweight contender Cat Zingano lost out on the opportunity of a lifetime when she couldn’t coach against Ronda Rousey on The Ultimate Fighter 18 and missed on her title shot due to a torn ACL. It only got worse for Cat when her husband, who she has a son with, tragically passed away this January. Can’t imagine how hard this last year has been for Cat with all she has had to deal with. She is seen here in Costa Mesa, California getting the last knee injection of her treatment done. We wish her the best of luck with the rest of her recovery and everything else.
Last Call just got a new sponsor, Memory Tag, an app that allows you to put video onto stickers, greeting cards etc… Pretty cool idea, and it looks like Danny is feeling pretty good about this new sponsorship. Hopefully the men and women at Memory Tag bought the Team Alpha Male lightweight dinner first before the clothes came off! Hope Danny is doing well, big fight at UFC 172 against Charlie Brenneman coming up and we are excited to see him back in action.
Alves definitely looks like he is at the tail end of his weight cut as you can see it in his face how thin The Pitbull is right now. Alves is working with Mike Dolce though so you know, without a doubt, that he is making the weight in the healthiest manner possible. Alves is a beast and it will be great to have him back in action after missing nearly two years due to injury.
A raising star in the UFC lightweight division Myles Jury made the trip to Orlando, Florida to be a part of UFC on FOX 11 and all the pre fight festivities. Jury is seen here at the Metro PCS store meeting with fans and signing autographs. Glad to see Jury starting to get the recognition he deserves and we should all look for big things from this Alliance fighter.
Because it is the fight the entire MMA community is dying to see…
