First UFC Event/PPV of 2016 is this Saturday.
Main Event is for the UFC Welterweight Championship.
“Ruthless” Robbie Lawler is coming off one of the best fights of 2015 vs Rory MacDonald. What a war it was at UFC 189 back in July. It was a slobberknocker back and forth vs Rory MacDonald. Lawler somehow pulled it off. Now his next task is trying to defeat Carlos Condit.
Condit is coming off his win TKO win versus Thiago Alves. A product of Jackson Submission Wrestling, with a record of 30-8, 15 wins by Knockout, 13 wins by submission. Condit will look to dethrone Ruthless Robbie Lawler to become the UFC Welterweight Champion.
Johnny Hendricks has a fight in February versus Stephen Thompson. Tyron Woodley defeated Kelvin Gastelum.
He deserves an opportunity at facing the winner of Lawler/MacDonald. Tyron defeated Carlos Condit, Dong Hyun Kim & Kelvin Gastelum. For marketing purposes, has never faced Robbie Lawler & UFC Marketing Team can promote Woodley vs Condit 2 if Condit is champion heavily.
I will keep it short and sweet in the main event. Stipe Miocic vs Andrei Arlovski. It should be a title eliminator. The winner should square off versus winner of Cain Velasquez vs Fabricio Werdum on February 6th.
Either way, it presents a fresh matchup for fans of the UFC Heavyweight Division.
Well Everyone, Happy New Year!
Enjoy the fights!
