Finally the arrival of Ben Askren, I can’t wait for Askren to fight Robbie Lawler. All because of Joe Rogan, Askren is in the UFC. Askren without a doubt, Askren is one of the best wrestlers in the UFC and will dominate his opponents. The welterweight division is in trouble because of Askren. I believe Ben will be a star soon, Ben has the marketing checklist to make him a star. Another star in the making is Zabit Magomedsharipov who will be a future UFC featherweight champion. Zabit is facing Jeremy Stephens. A test for Zabit which will be a fascinating to watch. Lastly Johnny Walked a light heavyweight future star whose fighting Misha Cirkunov. Walker gives some new blood to the light heavyweight division.
I’m so excited for UFC 235, Counting down the days till it arrives. A lot of fights to watch and the debut of Ben Askren. Lastly if you watch UFC 235 don’t illegally stream it, Pay 65 dollars because your basically stealing money from Jon Jones, Anthony Smith, Woodley and Usman… But that’s for another blog.
It was truly an honor to watch GSP fight. Watching a true artist perform at the highest level. If you want to create the perfect MMA fighter, You’ll create GSP. GSP is an all- around fighter where other fighters are great at one style. The title of the blog is “GSP, The Greatest MMA fighter Retires.” George St Pierre is the greatest MMA fighter of all time, He beat the best such as BJ Penn, Matt Hughes and Nick Diaz. He never dodged any fighters or took any steroids. Ariel Helwani the top MMA journalist states “George St Pierre is the greatest of all time.”
GSP is a two division weight champion, He can back after a four year layoff and won the Middleweight title by beating Michael Bisping. I ordered the PPV for the GSP return and was amazed by how incredible GSP looked. That showed GSP is the greatest. I wish that wasn’t the final fight of his career, I wish he fought Khabib in his next fight but it will never happen. Overall even without the Khabib fight, His record and who he fought speaks for itself. GSP is the perfect fighter and the fighter to represent the sport. Once again it was truly an honor to watch GSP’s career.
Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson is a fight fans want to see. Hopefully the 5th time we see this happen because both men are at the top of there game. Tony Ferguson is an all around fighter with a 11 fight win streak, Tony Ferguson will give Khabib the most trouble. I’d love to see this fight happen and see if Khabib actually has competition. Khabib is just a mauler, 27-0 record. Brendan Schaub is a regular guest and he knows people at AKA which is one of the best MMA gyms in the world, Khabib wrestled Ed Ruth a Penn State All American wrestler and Khabib destroyed Ed Ruth which is crazy!! Khabib is one of my favorite fighters to watch. I hope this fight happens it will be a ppv success for the UFC.
George ST. Pierre vs Khabib
GSP one of the greatest fighters of all time, All around fighter. He is the perfect example of what a fighter should be, Doesn’t trash talk just goes inside the octagon and beats every opponent he faces. There’s nothing bad about this man. GSP is getting up there in age and only has a fight or two left in him. GSP wants to fight the best right now and make the most money ever in his MMA career. The man he should fight is Khabib because Khabib needs a challenge, That would be a interesting matchup for him. Khabib is a huge star, Dana can definitely promote the hell out of this fight! Please Dana make this fight happen.
Cain Velasquez vs Stipe Miocic
Cain Velasquez has returned to relinquish his throne as the best Heavyweight of all time. Cain is a Mexican Silverback lol but it’s true he’s very talented fighter and a two time Heavyweight Champion. He beat Junior Dos Santos twice and Beat Antonio Silva twice. Stipe Miocic took over the Heavyweight reign being a three time defending Heavyweight champion. Stipe and Cain Velasquez would be a fight for the ages two gladiators stepping in the cage
I’ve talked about this before but the talent now in 2019 is incredible, I keep researching and finding future UFC or Bellator mma champions on the internet. The website I use is Tapology.Com which is one of the best MMA websites in the world, Shows pound for pound rankings, Regional MMA events and mma prospects. If your a MMA fan I recommend you taking a look at it. In the last couple of days found several mma prospects who have the potential to be UFC or Bellator champions.
Troy Lamson is 27 years old with a 12-2 record and a six fight win streak. Troy is the 8th ranked Active U.S Pro Welterweight fighter on the regional scene. Troy was a New League Fights Champion in the lightweight division. Troy has look and the personality to be a star while being in the prime of his career. Will see Troy coming to the Dana White Contender Series to showcase his talents. Troy has that pitbull mentality where he never gives up, He keeps attacking and is more of a stand up fighter. You can watch his fights on YouTube.
Raufeon Stots, 30 years old with a 11-1 record. He’s a Bantamweight fighter in the prime of his career. He currently fights for the Legacy Fighting Alliance which is one of the best regional MMA promotions in the United States, Probably #1. Stots should be in Bellator or UFC already, He’s a very good fighter and shocked he isn’t. Stots is the 4th ranked U.S Pro Bantamweight Fighter. When Stots gets a LFA title shot and wins the LFA title than Stots will get a call from Dana White. I believe Stots will go to the UFC or Bellator soon, He’s a beast I recommend you all to go watch his fights.
Ylies Djiroun 16-4 record, 11 fight win streak. Ylies is 26 years old. Ylies is fighting in the European scene and one of the best prospects in Europe. On Tapology I see a lot of first round knockouts, His fights never really go the distance as Ylies just smashes fighters. Ylies is #1 ranked France Lightweight fighter. Give Ylies a couple more fights as he gets an offer to fight for Cage Warriors and show the UFC scouts his talents. Cage Warriors is probably the best European or England MMA promotion. If Ylies fights for Cage Warriors couple times and wins the lightweight title, Dana will give the kid a call.
Andre’s Quintana 18-2 record with a 8 fight win streak and is 27 years old. Andres is the 1st ranked, U.S West featherweight. Andres competes in the MMA promotion, Combates Americas. Combates Americas is one of the best smaller promotions in the business, Combates has a lot of young talent and Quintana has one of them. You can watch a couple of his fights on YouTube. The kid is a beast and WILL be a future MMA champion. He’s probably the best prospect I’ve found lately and can beat UFC fighters right now. Andres is more of a stand up fighter.
Abdul- Kareem Al- Sewady with a 10-1 record, 6 win streak. Abdul is 23 years old and is the 2nd ranked Middle East Lightweight Fighter for Brave. Brave is the best MMA promotion in the Middle East and Brave threw world class fighters at Abdul, Abdul beat them all which is impressive for a 23 year old. Abdul is a tank, Watching his fights on YouTube very impressed and he still needs some work. Abdul probably should go a world class MMA gym to advance his skills. Abdul has the potential to be a UFC champion.
