Key Fights – Week of August 22

Somehow, UFC 134 has snuck up on us and will be taking place this Saturday.  I haven’t had the time to realize that the UFC finally returns to Brazil where Anderson Silva will defend his Middleweight Title against Yushin Okami.  We’ll see a number of exciting matches, including Shogun vs. Forrest and Schaub vs. Nogueira.

There are some other big shows this week, including Shooto’s card in Brazil scheduled for Friday.  DEEP 55 Impact features two title bouts while ProElite returns to Hawaii with a show featuring Andrei Arlovski and Kendall Grove.  UFC legend Dan Severn also tries for his 100th MMA win for the Gladiator Challenge promotion.  Check out the upcoming fights tab to see details on these fights and many more!
