Key Fights – Week of October 24

I’m pretty thrilled about the fights ahead of us this week.  UFC 137 leads the way, even without a GSP vs. Carlos Condit title fight.  Diaz vs. Penn is a serviceable main event and the card is pretty deep anyway, though the co-main event leaves a bit to be desired.  I’m also very excited to see what Hatsu Hioki does in his UFC debut.

Across the rest of MMA, Patricia Vidonic and Lauren Taylor are notable women in action this week.  Top flyweight Jussier da Silva will defend his Shooto 123 pound title, and we may very well see the most important fight in Bellator history.  Ben Askren and Jay Hieron are two of the best fighters not in Zuffa and they will be competing for the Bellator Welterweight Title.  Bellator’s fat boys will also regrettably be in action.

There’s so much more happening this week, but you’ll have to check the upcoming fights tab to check it out!  Maybe Royce Gracie will be fighting!  What about Hong Man Choi?  Or even Aleksander Emelianenko!  Well, one of those fighters is competing – you’ll just have to figure out who it is.
