Key Fights – Week of October 31

Mwaaaaahahahahaha!!!  Happy Halloween, spooky readers!!  We have a spoooooky week of fights ahead of us including a terribly spoooooky UFC 138 card that would be a lot spoooookier if we actually had to pay for it!  Imagine living in England and having a card this spooooky as your only live event for the year!  The hair raises on my arms just thinking about that!

But that’s not all in this creepy and crawly week of fights!  Shooto has a 115 pound Title Fight and have a couple of interesting flyweight bouts.  Flies fighting in MMA?  Ahhhh, that’s terrifying!  I’ve never seen 125 pounds before, this has the potential to be absolutely horrifying!

I saved the scariest for the last and that’s ProElite’s second event since returning to MMA!  Six heavyweight fights?  Between largely irrelevant fighters?  In Moline, Illinois.  Oh goodness gracious no!!  Somebody call a priest!!  Will these fights be held under strict quarantine so that a rare contagious strain of acromegaly won’t be distributed throughout the audience?

Tim Sylvia, Andrei Arlovski, Travis Fulton, and Andreas Kraiotakes are in the main heavyweight fights, while eight low level heavyweight fighters compete in a blood-curdling tournament.  UFC legend Pedro Rizzo was spared from having to fight at this event because…what, do I need to give you more reason than I already have?

Oooooooh, such scaaaary fights ahead of us!  Be sure to read about these fights and more of the ghastly details on the upcoming fights tab!

    Do you have a place where you view these Shooto bouts? These strawweight and flyweight bouts are things I desperately want to see. I am excited for Saturday. I love a free card, but two? Good stuff.

      Unfortunately, no. I don’t have any kind of source to view these fights, and frankly, I’m not even sure what the TV situation is. I know that DREAM has issues in Japan so I can’t imagine how smaller promotions like Shooto and Pancrase struggle.
