Key Fights – Week of November 7

November 7, 2011 3 comments

OH MY GAAAAAWD I AM SO TIRED.  This is awful.  I don’t get good sleep and kicked my ass at the gym earlier, I’ve yet to recover.  JESUS WHY CAN’T I JUST WAKE UP.  Even worse, the Bears are playing and I can’t go to sleep while the game is happening.  Ugh.

So here I am with your fights for the week.  The big deal to end all big deals is the UFC Heavyweight Title fight.  On Fox.  For the first time ever.  This is going to be an absolutely awesome experience and I’m anxious to see how this all comes to play on Saturday.  Guida vs. Henderson makes for a great co-main event, but I certainly am disappointed that it apparently won’t be on Fox.

Bellator is pretty much the only other game in town, featuring the Welterweight and Middleweight tournament finals.  Shamil Abdurahimov will be in action for ProFC and that’s kind of a big deal.  Oh, and remember a couple of weeks ago when I said that Aleksander Emelianenko would be fighting?  Well he didn’t, but he is this week!  He’ll be in action for M-1 in Russia this Saturday.

There are a few other interesting fights this weekend so be sure to check out the rest on the upcoming fights tab!
