Top fighters in the UFC

Posted 11-30-2007 at 07:34 PM by GMW
This isn't a rankings or p4p list, it's just who I think are the most skilled fighters in the UFC at the moment.
*This isn't in order and because it's only five people it isn't necessarily THE best five, ie liddell but no rampage?

1. George St. Pierre - Solid ground game, great ground and pound, great take downs accompanied by an amazing take down defense with good striking makes him the top Welterweight in the world at the moment. In addition to his fighting ability, he is also

Underrated/Unknown Fighters #1

Posted 11-29-2007 at 03:26 PM by bbjd7
I thought I would use this new blog feature(sick idea) To try and put fighters I think are underrated some love and Also to give some guys who don't get a lot of attention a spot light.

So I figured I start out with 2 Chute Boxe fighters obviously.

[U][B]Luiz Azeredo[/B][/U]

Luiz was a top LW fighter in Pride. However he was always overshadowed by Gomi, Hansen, Sakurai, and others. His record is an unimpressive 11-6.

But he was competitive in all his losses and outside of a loss early in his career to some scrub his other losses were to Hansen by a crazy knee during a close fight. Sakurai by decision. Tony Desouza by decision. Gomi twice in two close fights especially the 2nd one.

He has wins over Paul Daley(a future topic of this blog),Buscape, and Anderson Silva.

Luiz Azeredo hasn't been fighting recently but rumors seem to be linking him to fighting on NYE, and also he is supposed to fight Buscape in February. Whenever he returns trust me he is a dangerous fighter who can compete with anyone in the LW division.
[U]Helio Dipp[/U][/B]

Helio was supposed to be the next great Chute Boxe star. He has crazy Muay Thai and fighting at 205 he was thought to be the next Wanderlei, or Shogun.

After going 4-0 including a KO against IFL veteran Brent Beauperlant, Helio hit a wall and lost 3 of his next 4 fights all against experienced talented fighters.

He won his last fight on September 22 and hopefully he is making a turnaround. He has the Muay Thai skills plus he is 6'5 fighting at 205 which gives him a big advantage....

Blog 01: The future of Martin Kampmann

Posted 11-29-2007 at 02:59 PM by 6sidedlie
Martin 'The Hitman' Kampmann was at one time set for a #1 contender match up with MW beast Rich Franklin, which many had picked him as a potential upset. We are around 8 months later, a blown out knee, a couple Anderson Silva KOs, and now an awful MW division, does it make sense that Martin Kampmann could potenially see himself as the #1 contender in the near future?

The list of contenders is weak and dry at 185 these days in the MW division. Dana White has named David Terrel, Thales...

2008 LHW division

Posted 11-29-2007 at 12:51 PM by Sterling
I have been tring to work out the LHW division in the UFC the past few days. This is my take on what would be the best senerio for the top tier contenders.

Rampage Jackson: The guy is the champ and everyone is wanting his belt. I know he hurt his hand against Henderson so maybe the layoff time to sort some things out is just giving him time to heal properly. I think the best senerio right now is him being a coach on TUF with Forrest Griffin thus the season ending with he and Griffin...
