How are all my fellow fight fans doing out there? Some big news today in the way of a Heavyweight Title fight has surfaced, as well as some other interesting tidbits and rumors. So lets get right to it.
Ariel Helwani is reporting a huge rematch at UFC 211 on May 13. Stipe Miocic will make his second title defense, his opponent will be former heavyweight champ, Junior dos Santos. In their first meeting a little over two years ago, JDS won by unanimous decision. This remains one of two blemishes on Miocic’s record, the other is a TKO loss to Stefan Struve. Miocic most recently won a wild fire fight against Alistar Overeem, while a rejuvenated dos Santos picked apart Ben Rothwell for a decision win. This fight will have plenty of action and should primarily be a stand up battle.
Dana White has confirmed that Jessica Andrade has secured the next title shot against Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Andrade has been flawless since dropping to 115 and is right on time as Joanna Champion is looking for her next opponent. Andrade won an exciting fight against Angela Hill this past Saturday night to secure the number one contender spot. Not only did Jessica earn the future title fight, but she also won a bonus of $50,000, as did Hill for fight of the night.
A rumored Bellator fight between Michael “Venom” Page and Paul Daily is being thrown around heavily the last few days. These are two of the most exciting 170 pounders in the world and this is a striking fans dream match up. Both England natives own some impressive knock out wins and they will both look to finish the fight. We can only hope Scott Coker gets this fight signed soon.
A lot of the time I like to leave you with a video and a description of it. Well today I will deliver the video, but you will have to watch it with no description from me. So here you go, I leave you with this gem……
