Fight Week is here!
That’s right, UFC 127 is steadily approaching. This card has potential to be great or completely average. It’s definitely a card I’d think twice about paying $50 dollars for, given the outrageous oil prices at the moment. Gas is around $3.20 where I live and I’ve been having my share of driving lately. Thankfully, I have other ways to watch the card. More than likely, I’ll be splitting the costs between a few friends of mine. Whatever you decide to do, have a GREAT weekend.
Random News Thoughts
James Toney Speaks….Something
This shouldn’t even be relevant anymore. It’s quiet obvious that Toney is just looking for a quick payday given his problems with the IRS. Apparently he wants ANOTHER fight in the UFC with Rampage Jackson. This isn’t going to happen, or shouldn’t within the UFC at least. Unfortunately, Toney didn’t spend money wasn’t spent too wisely and he isn’t exactly a spring chicken anymore. Everyone has their right to make money, but head trauma has taken it’s effect on him. He should consider training other boxers. I used to laugh at his interviews but I really can’t anymore because of his decline financially and mentally. I smell a BLOG topic relating to this next week. Stay tuned!
UFC 127 Quick Picks
Chris Camozzi vs. Kyle Noke
Winner: Kyle Noke
Chris Lytle vs. Brian Ebersole
Winner: Chris Lytle
George Sotiropoulos vs. Dennis Siver
Winner : George Sotiropoulos
Michael Bisping vs. Jorge Rivera
This fight should end in nothing other than a TKO.
B.J. Penn Vs. Jon Fitch
Let me go ahead and get something out here. I am a B.J. Penn fan. So I’ll be pulling for him. However, ever since he’s been losing to Frankie Edgar, I just believe that he’s lost it. Looking at his face before both fights didn’t instill me with any confidence that his was going to win either one. I’m concerned that the win over Hughes was just a quick KO as I wanted to see him tested a little. However, EVERYONE is picking Fitch by decision it seems. It’s probably a wise choice to do so,but I'm not quiet ready to give up on B.J. just yet.
Winner: B.J. Penn
I will be watching the event with some friends, so I should have a review up shortly after. Thanks for reading this week and I look forward to dishing out some new topics starting Monday. Keep your eye open for a semi-boxing topic, but it certainly relates to MMA as well. Hopefully, I will be able to publish a "Final UFC 127 Thoughts" tommorow, but that all depends on if I catch the weigh-ins or not. Keep your eyes open. See ya around.
