Anticipating UFC 198 This Saturday Night

Anticipating UFC 198 This Saturday Night

ufc198

This year’s UFC 198 is approaching. There are only a few days left before the most anticipated mixed martial arts championship held in Brazil, with a match between Fabricio Werdum and Stipe Miocic put in the headline. The match is undeniably predicted to be so fun that every spectator would certainly get their adrenaline going.
Werdum is going to serve Miocic in Arena da Baixada stadium, Curitiba, Brazil on this Saturday, May 14th. The Brazilian fighter surely wants to defend his heavyweight title against Miocic on the 265-lbs party. No doubt that all eyes are on Werdum’s side, but Miocic would not let it easily happens, for he is a pretty tough opponent to tackle down. He is dangerous and that makes this main match worth witnessing.
Besides, on the line, there is going to be Anderson Silva vs Uriah Hall, which is also quite something. The upcoming UFC 198 on Pay-Per-View must have dragged every Brazilian on this earth to this match, for the match between Silva and Hall is foreseen to be even as great as what would be served by Werdum and Miocic.
In the same category as Silva and Hall, Cris Cyborg is arranged to serve Leslie Smith on 140 lbs, while Mauricio Rua will see Corey Anderson on 205 lbs. They are all making the main card which is started at 10pm ET truly fun and exciting.
Yet, MMA fans cannot miss the UFC 198’s co-main event which is going to be for Ronaldo Souza and Vitor Belfort. Most match prediction sees that Souza’s recent loss over Yoel Romero is his biggest disadvantage to bring to this match while Belfort is a bit on upper hand for his win against Dan Henderson. All those sayings are nothing until we get to the match and see how it will turn out.
Are you being much more excited? You should be, because more fighters would also entertain you that day on FOX Sports 1 in the Preliminary event started at 8pm ET. Demian Maia vs Matt Brown and Bryan Barberena vs Warlley Alves are among the matches you can wait for.
The matchup of Maia and Brown is predicted to be one of the match stars that day, for the two of them are rather on equal excitement to win the game. Brown has gained quite a number of wins which should not scare Maia, who seems to not let that happen this time. Overall, this Saturday night, you should really go nowhere.

UFC 197 Main Event

UFC 197:

Who would you like to replace Daniel Cormier against Jones at the UFC-197 Main Event?

So now since Daniel Cormier is almost out of the main event of UFC-197 against Jon Jones, the question is, who can replace him?

1. Anthony Johnson

Anthony Johnson was all-set to battle Jones for light heavy weight match in 2015 before the arrest & suspension of Jon Jones. Daniel Cormier then replaced Jones & lasted an initial storm to submit Anthony Johnson & grab the title. Rumble’s came back with 2 straight Knock Out Punches, which made this battle worthy of the UFC 197 main event.

2. Alexander “The Mauler” Gus

Alexander Gustafsson gave Jon Jones possibly his greatest challenge during UFC-165 in 2013, with Jones overriding in the decision win which earned Fight-of-the-Year awards from a number of outlets. Nevertheless, Gus has, in the meantime, lost 3 out of four battles, including to both Johnson as well as Cormier, who Knocked Out him during the 1st round. In Feb, Gus told FOX Sports that he still was looking to get back in order regain his mental advantage. If Gus is hungry enough to save his UFC career, a re-match against Jon Jones can provide him just the right inspiration which he desperately needs. This means, the UFC fans could enjoy another classic battle between these two. Nevertheless, that is a huge if.

3. Ovince Saint Preux

A slight stretch with Number 6 Ranked Light-Heavyweight, who has been involved in a main event of 2 Fight-Nights losing both the times. Ovince Preux does not have a good résumé in order to go head to head with Jon Jones. This may feel similar to a tune up & not a UFC Main Event.

4. Travis Browne

Travis Browne, Ronda Rowdy’s boyfriend is another heavyweight & supposed to battle Cain Ramirez Velasquez at UFC-200, however he is also a former team mate of Jon Jones. So, this may be fight worth watching. Travis certainly has a superior résumé as opposed to Ovince Saint Preux however, like him, he has been in 2 cards losing both the times. 

Last but not the least, there is this choice:

To postpone Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier battle for the UFC 200 event. This can surely make a hell of a Co-Main affair. Despite the fact that, UFC-197 may lose some shine without Jon Jones battling, leaving Henry Cejudo vs Demetrious Johnson as the UFC 197 main event.
