...and, boy, we're only around the corner from UFC 120 Bisping vs Akiyama, with Bisping, Kongo, Hathaway and Hardy fighting we're almost guaranteed to see two knockouts, if not more. Shortly after 120 we'll be seated and ready to go as 121 gets on course, possibly one of the most exciting cards in the most recent years of the UFC's Heavyweight division as Cain Valasquez takes on Brock Lesnar.
In other parts of the MMA world, aren't we all aching to see Overeem hit the octagon? I mean, the guy's a beast, his physique and fitness is outstanding, his striking abilities are by far superior to 90% of the UFC's heavyweight divison and the guy has more fighting experience than almost any other fighter in the world! In my book, if Fedor isn't the #1 heavyweight in the world, Overeem is.
On the topic of Fedor, his management are, once again, being the cock-ups of the MMA business. They're Fedor's biggest nuthuggers and are determined to maintain all ownership of the great Russian, despite the fact his movement to the UFC would draw ten times more cash than a bout with Strikeforce would.
Also, Jose Aldo is looking to secure his place as the #1 lightweight in the world. After Aldo completely tore apart Faber, a man many believed to be one of the top pound for pound mixed martial artists, his confidence has solidified and the featherweight is looking for entry into the UFC in the near future where he will move up a few pounds and compete for the lighwight belt.
