The upcoming Ultimate Fight Night Live card is just a couple of weeks away from the Hard Rock Café in Las Vegas and we should get a pretty good idea about what the future holds for a few up and coming fighters.
– Rashad Evans vs Sam Hogar – Is 205 the right weight class for Evans? Most likely yes, however Hogar makes every fighter that he faces look bad because of his unorthodox style. A much tougher fight for Evans than most expect.
– Luke Cummo vs Jason Von Flue – Maybe the fight of the night on the card. Von Flue has the quirky style to trap anyone with his crazy front choke, but Cummo is non stop action all the time and will try to overwhelm Von Flue in what should be a very exciting fight.
– Josh Burkman vs John Fitch – Burkman is trying to show he is the star that Diego Sanchez was of the Season 2 class. Burkman can be dominant with the ground n pound style that can beat anyone.
– Joe Stevenson vs Josh Neer – Very interesting fight as both fighters have shown they have plenty of ability. Stevenson will be the slight favorite in the fight, but Neer’s heart makes this a great fight.
– Stephan Bonnar vs Keith Jardine – Bonnar may be ready to be on the fast track with a fight against a Chuck, Tito or Babalu next with a win. Jardine on the other hand knows he can make his name off Bonnar with a win.
– Josh Koscheck vs Ansar Chalangov – Koscheck had the devastating loss to Drew Fickett last time at UFN. To many in the fight game this is a must win situation against the tough Russian at Ultimate Fight Night 4.
– Chris Leben vs Luigi Fioravanti – Leben is ready to face a Top 10 fighter with a win. Leben actually might be a Top 10 fighter if he wins this fight in impressive fashion.
– Trevor Prangley vs. Chael Sonnen – Sonnen looked impressive in the loss to Babalu. Prangley might be the most disrespected fighter at 185…(yes he did beat Horn, but the judges didn’t respect him either) The winner gets the respect they deserve the loser gets ready to main event the next WEC.
– Brad Imes vs Gabriel Gonzaga – Gonzaga has a lot to prove after one of the worst heavyweight fights in UFC history. Imes is trying to take another step closer to show he has the potential to be a force in the heavyweight division over the next couple of years.
