UFC on FOX 5: Henderson vs. Diaz

It’s that special time again. No, not December. Well, actually it is December, but that’s not the topic of discussion here. What I am talking about is, of course, MMA!

UFC are delivering what looks like a promising card with a title fight in the lightweight division followed by some really promising fights that could be title contention fights.

Nate Diaz vs. Benson Henderson will be one heck of a fight. Both of these fighters are amazing fighters in terms of spirit and deliver to the fans what we want. I can’t wait to see this one. I expect Diaz to outbox Henderson but Henderson should win on the bottom with his wrestling. Who walks out with the belt?¬† Tough to say.

Alexander Gufstafsson vs Shogun Rua is said to be a title contender. Gustafsson is on a streak and claims that he will bring the belt to Sweden. If he beats Shogun, he wants a title shot. I don’t know about that, but Gustafsson is an odd fighter. Because last time he faced top notch competition he got owned, and this will be his second major test in my eyes. Can he deliver?

Rory MacDonald vs BJ Penn will be young talent versus legend. Which is better? I even heard they are doing some special drug testing for this fight. A fight that got BJ Penn out of retirement even. Can he beat the young talent that has been said to be a future champion? It will be highly interesting to see indeed.

Another very interesting fight for me will be Nam Phan vs Dennis Siver in the featherweight division. Siver was an excellent fighter and I hope he does well in the featherweight division which he has moved down to now. Can he beat Phan who is an excellent fighter as well? It will be a great fight and why this one isn’t on the maincard I do not know.

Thoughts on the upcoming UFC event?

One stacked card!

One stacked card!
