More Updates on UFC on Fox 8 Fighters

UFC on Fox 8 will be a flyweight main event as Demetrious Johnson defends his title against John Moraga. This much-awaited event will be on July 27, 2013 at the Keyarena, Seattle, Washington, United States.

Fans just could not wait for these two flyweights to fight since these two are known to have one of the toughest records to beat. Demetrious “Mighty MouseJohnson has 17 wins, 2 losses and only 1 draw. This superb fighter from Kirkland, Washington, USA is raring to fight after his main event victory over John Dodson at UFC on Fox 6 where he won via unanimous decision. Before this win he was able to beat Joseph Benavidez via split decision at the memorable UFC 152 and Ian McCall through unanimous decision at UFC on Fox 3 main event. Johnson is one of the fighters who were able to maintain a close to perfect winning record from the start of his professional career. From the time he first fought at AXFC, USA MMA and GF he held a 10-win streak until he lost to Brad Pickett at WEC 48 –Aldo versus Faber via unanimous decision.

John Moraga on the other hand is a fighter from Phoenix, Arizona. He is just 19 years of age but he holds a superb 13 win and 1 loss record. Although his last win was five months ago against Chris Cariaso at the UFC 155 – Dos Santos versus Velasquez via submission guillotine choke in just 1 minute and 11 seconds of round 1. This victory was among a series of 7 consecutive wins from July 2010. Moraga has remained undefeated from 2010 and has been victorious over great fighters like Nathaniel Baker, Freddie Lux, Matthew Garcia, Ulysses Gomes (defeated via KO) and Jose Carbajal to name a few. His only defeat came from John Dodson at the Nemesis Fighting- MMA Global Invasion in December 2010 via unanimous decision.

Aside from the Johnson versus Moraga main event, fans will surely delight as their female favorites will also be a part of the show. It will be a showdown between Miesha “Cupcake” Tate and Liz “Girl-Rilla” Carmouche. Carmouche is fresh from her terrible defeat against Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey at UFC 157 main event where Rousey once again won via her signature arm bar move. Carmouche submitted in just 4 minutes and 49 seconds of round 1.

UFC 158 Results: Camozzi defeats Ring, and Dana White announces Ronda Rousey as next TUF coach

Kevin and George from the Uncut Sports Show weigh in on all of the exciting action from this weekend’s main card at UFC 158. Let’s see what they thought about Chris Camozzi vs Nick Ring.

Chris Camozzi won a split decision over Nick Ring in a slug fest, that featured punches with nothing behind them. In the end Camozzi’s conditioning allowed him to out perform Ring for the win.

The biggest news of the night, however, came after the fight when Dana White announced that Ronda Rousey would be one of the coaches for season 18 of the Ultimate Fighter. Huge news for Women’s MMA and an interesting twist to the reality series.

UFC 157: Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche

On Saturday February 23rd, at UFC 157 Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche will meet inside the Octagon at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. The two will be the first women fighting in the UFC, and they will be battling for the women’s bantamweight title which was awarded to Rousey by default during a “UFC on Fox 5″ pre-fight press conference. Liz Carmouche (8-2, 5 KOs) has more experience in the MMA world than Rousey (6-0,). However, Rousey is recognized around the world as the face of women’s MMA, previously held by Gina Carano. With only six professional fights, and 6 first round submissions via armbar, Rousey has thrust herself into the limelight. Nonetheless, we have yet to see Rousey’s jaw get tested, can she take a punch, can she weather a storm, nobody knows because none of her fights have gotten to that point.

Also on this stacked card is Machida vs. Henderson. The winner of this could end up meeting Jon Jones if and when he defeats Chael Sonnen. I find this fight very interesting because Dan Henderson has become more one dimensional during his recent success. He loads up that right nicknamed the H-Bomb, and he lets it rip, which has proved to be pretty damn effective. His opponent Lyoto Machida just might be the most elusive fighter in UFC history. Machida is crafty, unorthodox, a great striker, and this could prove to be very challenging for Dan Henderson who has the tendency to just come straight forward with that loaded right hand. Urijah Faber finds himself in a must win situation, a loss here could really hurt his clout, and raise the question where does he go from here. He will meet Ivan Menjivar who by no means is an easy fight.

Josh Koshcheck will meet slugger Robbie Lawler who is back in the UFC after a long absence. Robbie Lawler has struggled lately in the Octagon, and its usually when he gets caught in a submission. If Koshcheck wants to win this fight, he’ll play it smart and immediately take it to the ground. If he chooses to stand and bang with Lawler, he could quickly find himself snoring. Brendan Schaub meets Lavar Johnson, expect this fight to be over in the first round with one of these guys flat on their back, no need to say more. Other exciting bouts has Court McGee vs. Josh Neer, Michael Chiesa vs. Anton Kuivanen, and Sam Stout vs Caros Fodor.
