Overeem and Lesnar ready to contest the shot at the heavyweight rod


Las Vegas - was held a conference call with 141 participants from the former champion UFC heavyweight Brock Lesnar UFC, and Strikeforce heavyweight former champion Alistair Overeem, who will meet on Friday December 30th to determine who will fight against champion Junior Dos Santos.

The two fighters will meet at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in an event which this time will be on a Friday and open from 7 pm PT/10 pm ET.

Overeem was asked about his focus for this fight, and very quiet replied: "I tried to stay focused on the fight, relaxing, although I have now a situation with my mother, but I'm ready." This is because her mother knew she was sick last week so had to attend this family affair.

For his part Lesnar said he has trained hard and is motivated by his return. "It's a sport that you must always evolve to be on top. I can not wait to return to the Octagon, "and said ready after 14 months of absence after the last time he entered the Octagon:" I'm competitive and there is electricity in the air, I'm happy. " Also on recovery and had to undergo surgery, said: "There is nothing easy about it. But we all want to be healthy, it feels good to be healthy. Looking back of course you think I could have done some things different about the surgery. But you have to live with your decisions. "

This being the debut of Alistair Overeem in the UFC was questioned about the extra pressure that might mean, but said: "The bigger the fight, and more media attention and more people see it, and I have better performance best for me. Sure, there is pressure to be the first fight in the UFC, but normal. "

Overeem was adamant in his statement on the outcome of the fight: "We are aggressive, we want to end a fight, I see that we get beyond the first or second round," what Lesnar agreed: "I feel like this is a heavyweight bout. Both want to end the fight. I do not think we get to the five rounds. "

Lesnar, considered the underdog for this fight said about it: "I do not mind being favorite or not, at the end of the day it was resolved to go in there. It is the beauty of this sport. My intention is to win and secure Alistair also. " While Overeem said: "I am a complete fighter. I have wrestling and Jiu Jitsu, but I prefer a KO on a submission, always prefer to believe that anyone ".(image)

Clash of Styles in the UFC 141


The next December 30 in Las Vegas two giants of mixed martial arts clash in the main event of UFC 141 to decide who the next opponent super heavyweight champion of the UFC, the Brazilian Junior dos Santos.

Brock Lesnar Alistair Overeem and collide inside the Octagon in a battle that has different styles for the stars. When we say giant, not just for its quality, but also because both are huge physically. Lesnar measured 6'3 "and weighs 265 pounds, Overeem, 6'5" and weight 265.

The way to fight the former champion Brock is well known in the U.S., power struggle, great fitness and take his opponent to the mat to finish them to death or submission. Opponents defeated as Frank Mir, Randy Couture and Shane Carwin can give veracity of this.

His 5-2 record and his arrival at UFC not long ago, in 2008, could make one think that Lesnar is inexperienced or lacks the tusk of the veterans in this sport. But there seems to be the case, as this warrior and national collegiate champion in his senior year at the University of Minnesota and his record there was 106-5. In addition, their rivals in the UFC have been first class.

Many have doubted its quality that comes from the WWE to MMA and always comes out the spirit of entertainer , but he managed to do in so little time deserves recognition for all. UFC champ was in his third fight by knocking out Couture, Mir took revenge in a brutal manner Carwin and finished him in two rounds. Want more?

It is true that knocked down with the Mexican Cain Velasquez, but until minutes before losing his UFC Championship Junior dos Santos many said was invincible and that Cain was among the 10 best fighters pound for pound.

His opponent this time is quite the opposite. It has an awesome experience stamped 1/11/35, was champion of Strikeforce and Dream, fought in Pride and even had the title of K-1.

Overeem has fists of steel, its muay Thai kicks are lethal and secure these two will be the main weapons against Brock. To top it off the Dutch fighter has won 33 of his last 35 fights and is in the prime of his career.

Both are facing something new in their careers. Lesnar has never had anyone taller and stronger than him in front, while Overeem has never faced a fighter as his rival, with a force and drive stunning.

Two mixed martial arts schools. The fighting with Lesnar and kickboxing and muay Thai with Overeem.

Predicting a favorite in this battle is very difficult, but I am inclined by the "Viking" of Minnesota, who is healthy, eager to return to the top and you can box better than they looked in his last fight with Velasquez.

The table is set and the risk is great for me to make this forecast, it looks closed the fight and the quality of those involved, but try to predict what will happen, without wishing to be a seer, of course ...

There we see.(image)

"So no matter where I am going to fight in the ring."

Khan (26-1, 18 KO) is now a huge -1200 favorite with the bookmakers to be monitored, which makes this fight much paresca a mismatch than it really is. Peterson (01/01/29, 15 KO) is a legit fighter who has never been an easy out for anyone.

UFC 140: Tito Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in Light Heavyweight Bout


Tito Ortiz was able to revive his MMA career with an upset win for the ages against Ryan Bader last July – and it looked as if Ortiz was finally healthy and back in the mix in the UFC Light Heavyweight division.

A month later, though, he stepped into the Octagon against the No.1 ranked contender Rashad Evans to save a pay-per-view main event, and, despite fighting gallantly, Ortiz showed that he was no longer at the top of the Light Heavyweight heap.

Now only a gatekeeper at best, Ortiz takes on “Little Nog” Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 140 and will once again need a win to remain relevant within the division. As the underdog, action on Ortiz on theMMA odds at the Bodog Sportsbook has a good chance to pay out if the former UFC Light Heavyweight champ decides to do what he does best and outwrestle his Brazilian opponent for a decision win. Ortiz has stated publicly that he wants to put on exciting fights, so the wrestling scenario may not play out.

Nogueira will step into the Octagon as the odds-on favorite despite losing his last two fights. The Brazilian will look to use his boxing skills to win a decision or to wear down Ortiz enough to use his jiu-jitsu skills to finish the “Huntington Beach Bad Boy”.

This fight has definite upset potential, especially if Ortiz can close the distance and work close enough to Nogueira to negate his boxing skills. Despite being a black belt in jiu-jitsu Nogueira will have a tough time submitting a fighter with the experience of a Tito Ortiz without wearing him down first.(image)

'Minotauro' Nogueira and Rogeiro: warrior blood brothers at UFC 140


The Nogueira brothers share the undercard of UFC 140 on December 10 in Toronto, Canada, in what will be one of the most anticipated events of the year. Two world-renowned veterans in a relatively young sport. Pioneers when venturing into lands hitherto unexplored, these brothers made a brilliant career in the now defunct Pride Fighting Championship.

The story of Rodrigo · ¨ Nogueira Minotauro is a self-improvement, effort and courage. At four years old, went into the martial arts of judo's hand until he suffered a terrible accident that nearly ended his life. Minotaur was hit by a truck, being in a coma for twenty days, with many of their organs involved and a poor prognosis. After eleven months in the hospital, Rodrigo walk again.

Rogerio Nogueira, Little Nog or ¨ ¨ As many know him, has had to live under the shadow of his brother for several years, despite having made a brilliant career with wins over Dan Henderson, Kazushi Sakuraba, Guy Mezger and Alistair Overeem (in twice). Roger has competed in the Olympic boxing team, earning the gold medal for his country at the 2006 Pan American Games. On the night of December 10, Rogerio face another veteran: Tito Ortiz on the urgent need to win after two straight losses:

· Training has been great. I'm very confident. I think it will be a great evening and go for the knockout. Try to give a good show because the last time I did not either. I am better trained this time. I know all about the game that Tito Ortiz suggests, I should have fought him for some time. I've been studying their movements for nearly a year · Roger explains.

In a different reality, Minotaur will have the chance to face Frank Mir again after that fateful December night in 2008 when it was knocked out for the first time in his career. The Brazilian will want to take off this thorn with a victory to ratify what was done in his native country this summer. After the knee and hip surgeries, Rodrigo seems to have found its best. In his last loss to Mir, Nogueira was the victim of an infection, which affected him in the face of their preparation for the fight. Mir will try to show that his first win was not the result of physical decline of his rival, but on its own merits and abilities inside the Octagon. As expressed in more than one occasion, the U.S. hopes that there is no excuse once · ¨.

The two fights will coestelares family and Nogueira team competing and supporting each other. Usually these two fighters are very dear to the public, but its rivals are also popular door and also former champions in search of new opportunities. Something seems safe as almost always happens in fights involving the name Nogueira, it promises excitement and intensity.
