WWE Royal Rumble 2018 Results


In this blog post, I will quickly share the match results for WWE Royal Rumble 2018 which was held on 28th January, 2018 at “Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia

The 2018 Royal Rumble was a massive spectacle in terms of crowd and PPV business in Philadelphia, as the Road to WrestleMania 34 begins

Raw Tag Team Championship — The Bar defeats Seth Rollins & Jason Jordan via pinfall to win the titles

Universal Championship — Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Braun Strowman vs. Kane
Brock wins…!

I will discuss this fight in detail as Brock is my favorite fighter. He has not only been at the top in WWE but also in UFC. His last fight against Mark Hunt was a clear indication of his growth as one of the best mixed martial artists in his weight division.

Let me cut the chase and tell you what happened in the fight

Braun kept on giving Brock hard time but an F5 from Brock on the Commentator’s table was a game changer move. Braun stamina was appreciated by the commentators as for a 385 pounder to fight for that long counts a lot. Brock was cunning and waited for the right time to make his move. Later Braun was burried under the announce table by Brock. Later Strowman hit Brock with consecutive running power slams. In the mean time, Kane takes advantage and hits Strowman out with a chair bang. As Kane prepares Brock Lesnar for Tombstone Piledriver, Brock smartly reverses it and hit an F5 winning the match

WWE Royal Rumble Main highlight:

Ronda Rousey makes her formal debut in WWE and will be performing full time for WWE. She has already signed the contract with WWE.

Ronda was one of my favorite female fighters in UFC and she defended the Bantamweight title a number of times in UFC. Her last fight against Nunes was disappointing and she left UFC. I hope that Ronda comes back to MMA again and conquer the art again. A fighter remains a fighter for life. It’s something inside of you, which you cannot build with training or experience. There should be a fighter in you and I am sure that Ronda will soon be able to discover the new fighter in her and come back to MMA. Wish her the best!

UFC 220 Main Card Results

UFC 220 Main Card Results & Brief Breakdown

Co-Mian Event featuring Light heavyweight Championship, Daniel Cormier vs. Volkan, like Cormier said there are levels to the game, he was right! In the first round Cormier almost had the fight finished with neck lock but Volkan was lucky enough to hear the time getting over for the first round.
The second round was not different either, Cormier takes down Volkan and finishes the fight with KO

As I always say, I would love to see Cormier fight against Jon Jones soon!

Main Event featuring the heavyweight bout between Ngannou & Miocic.

>Other than throwing a couple of good punches Ngannou didn’t do much and was out of gas tank in the second round. Miocic was all over him, throwing leg kicks and then utilizing single leg grip to take the giant down. I was not at all expecting the fight to go
in the later rounds but I was lucky engough to witness it. Heavyweight fights specially championship oriented doesn’t last that long often.
Miocic and Ngannou both have earned respect from millions around the world. Miocic proved a point that it’s more about technique and not only about power in punches. I wish both fighters the best. Miocic becomes the best heavyweight fighter of the world to have defended the UFC heavyweight title for the third time

I always enjoy Brock Lesnar’s fights because he is a true fighter with skills and passion about fighting

UFC 220 Updates & Prediction

UFC 220 Updates and Prediction:

Francis Ngannou gave a bold statement by saying that he thought Overeem was the best striker in heavyweight division after him, because he is the best. He said that Miocic is champion for a reason but he is the best. When asked that will Miocic try to wrestle? Ngannou said that he is continuously working on his wrestling skills and will give Miocic tough time

Brief Introduction about Ngannou:

Born on 5th Sept, 1986 in Cameroon. Ngannou is ranked the number one contender in heavy weight UFC division as per UFC and ESPN

He currently holds the record for highest punch power ever measured by the UFC, at 129,161 units. He broke the previous record set by kickboxing champ Tyrone Spong which was at 114,000 units

My opinion:

I have not seen a heavy weight fighter which is as fast as Ngannou and with his striking power, I am quite sure, if he touches Miocic, it will be goodnight for him

My prediction UFC 220:

My prediction is that Francis will win the heavyweight bout against Stipe Miocic

Physical Features (Ngannou):

Height: 1.93 m

Weight: 118 kg

Reach: 83 in (210 cm)

MMA record for Francis Ngannou:

He won 11 fights and lost only one against Zoumana Cisse in terms of Unanimous decision. Francis won four fights with submission but his most recent fight against Overeem shows his punching power and skills

On the whole, I am expecting a brutal knockout from Francis but Miocic is a champion for a reason and if he is able to overcome the challenges put in his way by Ngannou, he will set the record of being the best heavy weight fighter to have defended heavyweight title for consecutive three times

ufc 220 miocic vs ngannou

Stipe Miocic has an impressive record of 17 wins and 2 losses. It will be a good competition and as a UFC lover I can’t wait to see the two heavyweight fighters fight inside cage

Miocic lost against Junior dos Santos and Stefan Struve

In his second fight against Junior dos Santos, he won by TKO punch

Both fighters and brilliant in different areas and I guess Miocic should try to mix up attacks and manage distance accordingly to have a win against Ngannou

UFC 220 Miocic vs. Ngannou will be held on January 20th 2018 at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts

Ngannou vs Miocic Heavyweight bout (Main Event)

Let me give you a heads up, Miocic might set a record of defending heavy weight championship for the third consecutive time, if he does, his name will go in the history as the most successful heavy weight to have ever existed (UFC history) Dana mentioned it at the press conference following this statement ‘Ngannou holds the record for the most powerful punch with 96 horse power’ considering these points, I am waiting for the best heavyweight fight ever! Ngannou has destroyed his oppenents crashing them with a knock out punch. His last fight against Overeem says the whole story! Looking forward to the fight

Daniel Cormier vs Oezdemir Light Heavyweight championship (Co Main Event)

ufc 220

Cormier said himself that Oezdemir acheived a lot in a short period of time and that it’s impressive..Cormier gave example of Anthony Johnson destroying everyone when he came in his way and won against him

UFC Highlight:

Jon Jones will be having a hearing in a couple of months and might be able to return to Cage back again!

To be honest, I can’t wait to see Cormier fighting against Jon Jones again!

UFC 219 Results & News-Cris vs Holly

UFC 219 took place last Saturday night (Dec. 30, 2017) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Below are the results for main fights:

UFC 219

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Edson Barboza

Lightweight Championship
(Co Main Event)

It was hell of a fight, both fighters went to distance but Khabib was the winner. In the first round Edson threw some heavy leg kicks but the grappling king took over Edson and it became a one sided fight later on. Khabib won his 25th fight consecutively. Khabib was all over Edson and didn’t allow him to throw kicks closing distance
If Nurmagomedov wins against Tony Ferguson, he gets a chance to fight Conor McGregor later this summer
Khabib always displays great grappling techniques and is one of the best Lightweight fighters in the world
Can’t wait to see his fight against Tony and Conor
Khabib yells at Dana to give him the Title Shot…keep our fingers crossed!

Cris Cyborg vs Holly Holm

Featherweight Championship
(Main Event)
Cris wins on the basis of Unanimous decision as she ends up hitting Holly with more damaging blows

My favorite in this fight was Holly Holm but she didn’t do anything out of the box to win the fight.
Holly should have brought something new to the table to overcome the challenge

Cyborg hardly gave Holly a chance to open up and throw variety of attacks

Wish both fighters the best and hope to see Holly coming back strong in her future fights
