Key Fights – Week of September 26

September 26, 2011 Leave a comment

I must say, it’s not a bad week of fights when you get a free UFC Title fight.  That’s right, my friends – Dominick Cruz defends his UFC Bantamweight Title on Versus this Saturday.  Honestly, this is probably the best free card the UFC has ever offered.  There are some fun fights on the main card, all of which feature ranked fighters.  Blackeye Promotions, quickly becoming the premier spot for women in MMA, also has a good show this week featuring Roxanne Modafferi and Ediane Gomes.

The rest of the week?  Not as great, I guess.  Bellator has their season five fat boy tournament, where Neil Grove and Blagoi Ivanov pulverize six other sweaty heavyweights for a chance to fight king of the Bellator heavies Cole Konrad.  In Japan, where sound logic is not needed for MMA match-making, someone decided that Yuki Kondo should fight again.  Don’t worry, it only feels like the 36 year old Kondo has been around forever.  The former Pancrase Middleweight Champion will be back in action for the longstanding promotion.
