UFC on fox: Evans vs. Davis (main card analysis)
January 28th 2012
United Center
Chicago Illinois

Main card

 Light Heavyweight bout: Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis

In a bout to determine the no 1 contender for the UFC light heavyweight title (kind of), former title holder rashad Evans will square against up and comer Phil Davis. Now on paper there’s only 1 winner right????.Rashad former champion, excellent wrestler power in both his hands and feet and also has the edge in number of fights and competition faced. On the other hand we have Phil “Mr wonderful” Davis who 2 steal a phrase used often by ufc commentator Joe Rogan is a super athlete plain and simple I mean look at him he’s built like a ******* super hero. The reason I raise this point is because of how evident the size difference was between the 2 men when I saw them square off. I just wonder with Phil’s size, wrestling and ability to control the top position coupled with an awkward striking style could an upset be on the cards.

 Middleweight bout: Michael Bisping vs. Chael Sonnen

This fight doesn’t need a great deal of “analysis”, bisping doesn’t hit hard enough to hurt or discourage Chael, he doesn’t Have the take down defence to fend off chael and doesn’t have the ability to submit chael from his back. In short chael has all the advantages and his probably gunna win and Anderson Silva will we have no choice but to fight him.

 Middleweight bout: Demian Maia vs. Chris Weidman

There’s been a recurring theme in demian Maia’s fight of late. In his recent victory’s over Jorge Santiago, Mario Miranda and Kendall grove, the story has been the same although inferior on the ground and unable to do much offensively they do have good grappling skills and are able to stifle demian for the most part and reduce him simply controlling the fight on the ground. Chris Weidman is a very different fighter to the men I’ve listed, an excellent wrestler and an accomplished grappler in his own right. Which raises the question what game plan will Weidman employ. A fighter who has used superior grappling to all his fights in the ufc thus far, which is an advantage he will not in enjoy in this fight. The advantage he will enjoy is the ability to dictate where the fight takes place, and mixing it up may be his best route to victory never being in one place to long and being unpredictable.
