With all of the events from my previous 'Top Upcoming Fights' installment in the books it's time to look at what's on tap for MMA fight fans over the next few months.
Even though not every match up listed is going to end up being as good as it looks on paper. but either way these are fights you don't want to miss.
Let's get to it.
1.) Fedor vs. Dan Henderson (Strikeforce) – In the world of MMA, Fedor still carries some weight when it comes to drawing big numbers. Not to mention all the water cooler talk in regards to his career, future, and crumbling legacy. Getting a win over the likes of a legend in Henderson would go along ways to take some of the sting out of his last 2 outings. That said, I see Henderson getting the win after wearing down 'The Last Empero'r with his clinch, dirty boxing, and Olympic caliber take downs.
2.) Rich Franklin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (UFC 133) – Rich Franklin will be trying to avoid dropping 2 in a row for the first time in his long career. He is 3-3 over his last 6 with tough losses coming against Forrest Griffin, Vitor Belfort, and Dan Henderson. 'Lil Nog' is still starting to show some wear himself having dropped his last 3 fights in the UFC. The outcome of this fight could put these two fighters on different paths to end their respective careers. Make mine Franklin by TKO.
