UFC 67 Undercard Matches

ufc 67 undercard
The loss of the St. Pierre/Serra fight was a big blow to the purpose of this event. It was supposed to be the final event for the Ultimate Fighter 4 series, but was left as an event full of Superstar Vs. Steppingstone matchups.

One interesting matchup is Patrick Cote Vs. Scott Smith. I think Smith deserves to be in this televised match after his gutsy and unbelievable knockout of Pete Sell in the TUF 4 Finale. Cote also deserves to show that his performance in that Finale was just a fluke. This could be his last chance to prove he belongs to be at the top of the Middleweight Division. Sell is a fan favorite after his last fight and he can ride that popularity along with a win in this fight to a shot at some big fights and big money.

Another addition is John Halverson Vs. Roger Huerta. Huerta is a young fighter that Iâ“‚¬“„¢m sure they would like to develop more in the UFC to become a favorite in building the Lightweight Division. He has one win in the UFC over Josh Dent form the Hughes/Penn II card. Heâ“‚¬“„¢s facing a tough former boxer, John Halverson, in what should be a pretty good match.

A fighter to watch out for is Lyoto Machida. Machida has a perfect 6-0 record with wins over Rich Franklin, Bj Penn, and Spephan Bonnar. Macida will be taking on TUF’s Sam Hogar.

UFC 67: All or Nothing Steppingstone

What do we have in store for the next UFC event? We will be watching some of the best future stars in the UFC showcase their talents against some opponents that really donâ“‚¬“„¢t stand a chance at victory. Sure, you can say they have a punchers chance, but itâ“‚¬“„¢s about at good of a change as Rex Grossman has at winning a Super Bowl MVP award. All I have to say is that the UFC better find another headliner to replace Georges St. Pierre vs Matt Serra. UFC 68 is shaping up to be a good one, but I donâ“‚¬“„¢t see much excitement in the match-ups for this next pay-per-view.

Anderson Silva Vs. Travis Lutter

Out of all the Ultimate Fighter 4 middleweights, I thought Lutter deserved to win the title. He is a tough guy that not a lot of people gave credit to because he did not get a lot of camera time. I admit he has some pretty good skill, but I donâ“‚¬“„¢t see him winning a world-class fighter like Silva based on the training he receives at his gym in Dallas. Silvia has won fights all over the world and has dominated his competition in the UFC. I do hope some good middleweights will emerge to give Silvia some competition (or better yet, punch him right out of his leopard fur coat), but I donâ“‚¬“„¢t see it happening soon.

Mirco Cro Cop Vs. Eddie Sanchez

At first glance I thought Sanchez might look good by his 7-0 MMA record. Here’s the problem, he just started training MMA in 2004. With a grand total of just over two years of experience, maybe he did something before that. Nope, unless you want to count his baseball or personal training background. He does have a UFC knockout win as a replacement fighter against Mario Neto, but that doesnâ“‚¬“„¢t say enough. I think Cro Cop will have a dominant debut against Sanchez in this bout.

Quinton â“‚¬Å“Rampageâ“‚¬Â Jackson Vs. Marvin Eastman

This one is a handpicked fight that offers an opponent for Jackson that looks tough, but has a history of getting knocked out. The 37-year old Eastman is coming off a UFC streak of two knockout losses to Travis Lutter and Vitor Belfort. What Iâ“‚¬“„¢m predicting is that Jackson will have more highlights than a hood rat in a rap video.
