UFC 185 Preview and Picks

UFC 185 Preview by Philip Hanna UFC 185 takes place this Saturday night at the American Airlines Centre in Dallas, Texas. With two title fights, top contenders and big names throughout, this card is stacked top to bottom. A taste of PPV’s to come with shows like UFC 187 on the horizon, the UFC finally seems to be taking the talk of watered down cards seriously. With just days to go and no injuries yet reported, we might actually get to see this phenomenal card come to fruition. In the main event ‘Showtime’ Anthony Pettis looks to make it two successful […]


The Main Event Preview: Fabricio Werdum vs. Mark Hunt @ UFC 180

  UFC 180, which sees the UFC make its long-awaited debut in Mexico this weekend, is something to behold and one to mourn at the same time.

The Main Event Preview: Fabricio Werdum vs Travis Browne @ UFC on FOX 11

In a period of weeks where one fight card seems to merge into the next and events taking place on not just the usual Saturday but also on a Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, one could be forgiven for losing track of some of the most exciting upcoming bouts on the UFC calendar. One such fight takes place this Saturday night in the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida as #2 heavyweight Fabricio “Vai Cavalo” Werdum (17-5-1, 5-2 UFC) takes on the #3 in the division, Travis “Hapa” Browne (16-1-1, 7-1-1 UFC).
