Key Fights – Week of May 23

After a few quieter weeks of fights, it looks like the last week of May will be a huge one in MMA.  The big events are UFC 130, featuring Rampage Jackson vs. Matt Hamill, and DREAM’s Fight for Japan card.  DREAM will showcase eight fighters in the opening round of their Bantamweight Tournament while Shinya Aoki, Joachim Hansen, and Caol Uno are all in action.

Paulo Filho will be fighting Gustavo Machado in Brazil, Denis Kang takes on Jesse Taylor in Canada, and we have two nice cards from Shark Fights and Titan Fighting this week.  As always, check the upcoming fight tab for more details.
