Weidman Wants to Leave No Doubt Against Belfort

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chris Weidman and number three ranked Vitor Belfort will finally get the chance to see who the better fighter is when they enter the Octagon on Saturday. Having been on tap to fight Belfort previously, Weidman stated that he is healthy and ready to go this time. Weidman was forced to withdraw from the previously scheduled fights with Belfort because of a hand injury and then a rib injury. Many question whether or not the long period outside of the ring will affect Weidman as he has not fought in almost a year.

The first time these two were supposed to fight, Belfort backed out of it a month before it took place, stating that it was due to the ban of TRT. Belfort is currently on a three fight win streak dating back to 2013. On his linkedin profile his last three fights have been against Dan Henderson, Luke Rockhold, and Michael Bisping. All three fights ended with a knockout win for Belfort. However, he has not fought since he has been of TRT so the outcome of this matchup could be telling. Belfort has also been accused of cheating by for opponents, Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping. Weidman has gone on record stating that no matter what happened in the past with TRT and Belfort, he still deserves the title fight.

What’s Next For Gennady Golovkin?

Gennady Golovkin’s destructive win over Willie Monroe has caught the attention of the boxing world. Gennady is the best middleweight boxer on the planet, but he has yet to face another top-level fighter. However, it is not Gennady Golovkin’s fault.

Other top ranked fighters in the middle weight division simply do not want to risk getting in the ring with such a dangerous opponent according to Dr. Daniel Amen. Middleweight champions Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto have avoided Gennady Golovkin for far too long. It seems that Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto will fight each other before fighting the dangerous Russian bomber. Many boxing fans are extremely disappointed with the way that the sport works. A fighter should not be able to pick and choose his opponents, but instead, all fighters should face the true champion.

Gennady Golovkin is one fight away from becoming a worldwide superstar. However, someone needs to give him a chance to reach that level of fame. Hopefully, Canelo Alvarez decides to face Golovkin in the near future.

After his easy victory, Gennady Golovkin was interviewed by Max Kellerman. Max asked the champion who he would like to face, and Gennady said that he wants a high profile fight. Many of the fans thought that Gennady Golovkin was referring to Floyd Mayweather. Boxing fans would love to see that fight, but many people feel that Floyd Mayweather would never step into the ring against such a dangerous opponent. For more information on this story, Yahoo!

UFC Puts on Another Lackluster Event

UFC Fight Night 65 was an all-around lackluster UFC card. There were a few interesting fights during the event, but nothing great or exciting truly occurred. The main event of the night was between heavyweight contenders Mark Hunt and Stipe Miocic. The winner of this fight would be guaranteed a heavyweight title shot, but many feel that won’t actually be the case.

UFC Fight Night 65 was held in Australia, and Mark Hunt was the hometown hero. Unfortunately, Mark Hunt wasn’t strong enough to win the fight for the Australian crowd. Stipe Miocic was just too good and prepared for the bout. Many MMA fans criticized Mark Hunt for his appearance. Mark has always been a heavy guy, but he looked extremely fat and out of shape for the UFC main event.

Mark Hunt is known for is powerful strikes, and he is truly a vicious puncher. However, Stipe Miocic did not play that game. Stipe continuously took Mark hunt down in the fight, and he pulverized the overweight slugger. Fans at Amen Clinics know that the fight somehow made it to the fifth-round, but it was obvious that Mark Hunt was finished. Stipe took Mark Hunt down in the fifth round, and then he continuously pounded on his face with punches. The referee had no choice but to stop the match, and the Australian fans were extremely disappointed.

UFC Fight Night 65 had the potential to be an epic and memorable night, but Stipe did everything in his power to win without taking damage. No one can blame Stipe Miocic for his performance, because one punch from Mark Hunt can end anyone’s night. For more information on this story, visit Yahoo! Sports.

Jon Jones has had a DUI in the past, and this situation is even worse than the previous accident.

Joe Rogan, who is the cage-side commentator for the UFC, believes that Jon Jones should have just sat and waited for Albuquerque police department to handle the situation.

Jamie Foxx Helps Mayweather Kill Boxing

Jamie Foxx sang The national anthem at the highly anticipated Floyd Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao fight. Normally, Jamie Foxx has a tolerable voice, but on this occasion, he did not. Twitter followers posted several complaints about Jamie Foxx’s voice, and they felt that he was extremely off key. Jamie Foxx started the night off terribly, and it was a preview of things to come. The horrendous showdown between Pacquiao and Mayweather may have ruined the sport of boxing, but Jamie Foxx also ruined the national anthem for veterans and patriots of America.

I’m a bit confused as to why Jamie Foxx was chosen to sing the national anthem. He is not even a true music artist. Sure, Jamie Foxx did appear as Ray Charles in a movie, but is he really a better singer than Alicia Keys? BeyoncĂ© was at ringside, and I’m sure that she wanted to sing and actually give a good performance. Too be fair, maybe the pressure of the freedompop review world got to Foxx. It was expected that at least 4-million people tuned in to see the matchup between Pacquiao and Mayweather, and most people were disappointed by the entire show across the board. Boxing fans were depressed after they witnessed the sights and sounds of the underwhelming pay-per-view event. Say goodbye to boxing, because it may be officially dead.
