Pride of a Champion - UFC 82

Postby Like_Water » Tue Feb 26, 2008 1:51 pm

March 1st - Columbus, OH

This is the beginning of some great fight cards the UFC will be putting together this year.

Starting with the matchup of the year:

Anderson Silva (UFC champion) vs. Dan Henderson (Pride Champion)
---This should be an epic battle. By far the toughest opponent Silva has faced. I think Hendo will get it done and become the new UFC Middleweight champion. WAR HENDO!

Cheick Kongo vs. Heath Herring----Herring TKO round 2 (I can't stand Kongo)

Yushin Okami vs. Evan Tanner---Okami

Josh Koscheck vs. Dustin Hazelett----Koscheck

Chris Leben vs. Alessio Sakara----Leben (Leben took a beating last time out and won, he's got an iron jaw)

Jon Fitch vs. Chris Wilson----Fitch (top contender for a title shot)

Andrei Arlovski vs. Jake O'Brien---Arlovski (needs to be impressive in this one)

Diego Sanchez vs. David Bielkheden----Dirty Sanchez

Luke Cummo vs. Luigi Fioravanti----Fioravanti via TKO

Jorge Gurgel vs. John Halverson----Gurgel

This was a surreal title fight, Silva vs. Henderson. Never did I imagine Henderson would come out looking tentative and then lose so decisively - via submission. Wow. What a sport.

Okami looked great, this is the tough middleweight who fought Silva before competitively before Silva knocked him out with an illegal upkick and was DQ'd. We can probably look forward to Silva vs. Okami as the next middleweight title fight. (That may be Captain Obvious news, I haven't checked UFC.com lately...)
