Hey guys, what’s up?
It’s nishat here with the latest news on UFC 221 although this time I am a bit late…!

Well lets get to the point..!

UFC 221 Results:

Luke Rockhold vs. Yoel Romero – middleweight title fight:

It was a good start by Luke but I kept on thinking why Romero is not getting lose well then it was a matter of time when Romero hit Rockhold with a devastating knockout punch
followed by another brutal punch as Luke was falling down.
It was a great victory for the ‘Soldier of God’.
I wish both fighters the best..!

Curtis Blaydes vs. Mark Hunt heavyweight bout:

In the first couple of rounds it was all Mark Hunt but he ran out of gas tank and then it was fantastic grappling by Curtis. In the later rounds it was Curtis who kept
Mark Hunt down for most of the time. Blaydes threw heavy shots from the back mount and won by decision.

Tai Tuivasa vs. Cyril Asker: Tai Tuivasa won by hitting Cyril with a brutal knockout knee attack, the underdog wins..!!

Jake Matthews vs. Li Jingliang:

Jingliang faced a loss after a significant win streak..Matthews found success with his punches in the first two rounds and gained confidence as the fight went to distance.
All three judges awarded Jake Matthews the victory in terms of Unanimous decision.

Tyson Pedro vs. Saparbek Safarov – UFC light heavyweight :

It was the slickest submission by Tyson Pedro in the very first round…awesome move and submission. It happend when Saparbek was trying to take Pedro down at that time
Pedro had setup the submission on arm and with one awesome move of body it turned into a kimura submission trap.

Watch UFC 221 Countdown Full Episode Below:

UFC 221 is round the corner and I can’t wait to see the big fighters go toe to toe…!
Event features middleweight interim bout between Yoel Romero & Former Champion Luke Rockhold ..!
Luke is in phenomenal condition and this fight will feature two best fighters in the division. Romero is a Cuban Olympic wrestler with loads of techniques up his sleeves to take down and break his opponent & there are not that many human beings who move like him and on the other hand Rockhold has won many MMA titles. Rockhold entered UFC as a Strikeforce Champion. Rockhold has grown as a fighter for sure after his loss against Bisping in June, 2016 & he looks great in shape. In July of 2017, Romero was defeated by Whittaker & Australia gained their first UFC Champion (Whittaker) at UFC 213.

Luke said ‘I don’t live to be the second best’

Romero said during training “For my people in Miami, we got this”

For both fighters it’s about getting the title belt around their waist

I wish both fighters the best and would love to see one of the best fights in the history of MMA, below video is in Spanish

I congratulate UFC for having arranged such great MMA events through 22 countries and across over 100 cities, this time adding a new location to it’s extensive list none other than Perth, Australia

Here’s the other highlight, the Co-main event will feature the best heavyweight fighter to have represented Australia and Newzealand, none other than Mark Hunt fighting against Curtis Blaydes (#9 UFC heavyweight contender)

UFC 221 Romero vs. Rockhold-Event Details

yoelromerovsrockholdufc221

UFC 221 will take place on 11th Feb, at Perth Arena in Perth, Australia

It features the long awaited fight between Romero & Rockhold

Romero is a skilled fighter and I watched his last fight with Chris Weidman during which weidman was hit by Romero with Knee while weidman was trying to take down Romero. Romero is a very calculated fighter and according to my observation will be a tough nut to crack by Rockhold.

Rockhold’s last loss against Bisping was disappointing back in June 2016 and it takes a lot of effort and time to get the thoughts together. I wish both fighters the best & my prediction is that Romero will win the fight and hopefully Rockhold will be able to give tough time to Romero.
In the last few fights it seemed as if Romero runs out of gas tank and needs to work on his stamina.

This fight will be for interim title contest

At first it was decided by UFC management to arrange a fight between Georges St-Pierre & interim champion Robert Whittaker to serve headliner for UFC 221 but after GSP was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, it was not possible. I wish GSP the best and would love to see him in action again soon..!

The main card also features the following bouts:

Heavyweight

Mark Hunt vs. Curtis Blaydes

Heavyweight

Tai Tuivasa vs. Cyril Asker

Welterweight

Jake Matthews vs. Li Jingliang

Light Heavyweight

Tyson Pedro vs. Saparbek Safarov

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

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

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

It was a brutal first round one punch knock out by Francis & I truly believe that Francis has bright chances of becoming a champion.

It was a brutal fight with loads of punches exchange but Holloway won the fight in dominant fashion.

UFC 216 Predictions & Event Details

UFC 216 Predictions & Event Details:

UFC 216 Featuring Ferguson vs Lee will take place at T-Mobile Arena, Paradise, Nevada on October 7th, 2017

Ferguson vs Lee

This is the main event at UFC 216 in the Light Weight Division. This is for the INTERIM LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE and the winner most probably will fight Conor McGregor
Below is a breakdown on physical features and fighting aspects of the two fighters:

Tony Ferguson

ufc216eventdetails

Height: 71 Inches
Weight: 155 lbs
Reach: 76 Inches

Kevin Lee

Height: 69 Inches
Weight: 155 lbs
Reach: 77 Inches

Well it looks like Lee will have a slight reach advantage but with the skillset Tony has it will be difficult for Lee. Lee will have to look out for different angles.
May the better fighter win! My prediction is that Tony will win the fight!

Co-Main Event – Demetrious
Johnson vs Ray Borg

Flyweight Title Fight

This is the Co-Main Event of the evening..! It’s always a pleasure watching Mighty Mouse fight. If Demetrious defends his title this Saturday, he will become the first UFC fighter to defend title for the 11th time consecutively! My prediction is that Demetrious will win the fight for sure! Although Ray is a great fighter and if he is able to give Johnson tough time, that will be a good achievement in itself and a learning curve for Ray.
