Darren Elkins vs Mirsad Bektic (Full Fight)

Darren Elkins vs Mirsad Bektic, UFC 209, 4 March 2017
Fight of the Night

Mirsad Bektic vs Darren ElkinsDarren Elkins might not be a super star in the sport, but he is definitely one of the toughest. To me, he has become akin to the likes of Scott Jorgensen, Eddie Wineland, and Brad Pickett. Fighters who are extremely talented and accomplished but for one reason or another, simply haven’t been able to break into the upper echelon of their weight divisions. Darren Elkins vs Mirsad Bektic unfortunately isn’t going to help in Darren’s bid for a UFC title shot and MMA stardom, but it does speak volumes to how much heart and experience Darren has.

Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen I, UFC 117, 7 August 2010
Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen II, UFC 148, 7 July 2012

anderson silva vs chael sonnenFrom 2006 to 2013, the UFC Middleweight division was dominated by one of the best MMA fighters of all time, Anderson “The Spider” Silva. He surgically and systematically destroyed every single opponent the UFC put in front of him, defending his Middleweight Title 10 successive times. He destroyed Rich Franklin with knees. He rained elbows down on Travis Lutter while having him in a triangle. He choked Dan Henderson out with a rear naked choke. He even danced his way to victory against Demian Maia. It got to a point where Anderson Silva and the Middleweight division started getting boring to watch. Anderson Silva made every single fighter in the division look like they didn’t have the talent and the training to compete.

Fight of the Night

joanna jedrzejczyk vs karolina kowalkiewiczJoanna Jedrzejczyk vs Karolina Kowalkiewicz was a phenomenal fight, a contest between technique and toughness. Another attestation to the legitimacy of womens MMA – if there still is any doubt. However before going into the fight, it would be appropriate to reflect on the incredible achievement of the UFC205 event itself.

UFC 205 was a historic and milestone event for many reasons. The achievement of Conor McGregor to hold two championship belts in two different weight divisions at the same time. The remarkable and perhaps record breaking ticket and Pay Per View sales. The ticket prices and participation of fans and audience also shows that MMA is starting to arrive as a main stream sport.
