Here we go again folks! UFC fans all over the world would once and for all be witnessing 5 great fights in UFC 119. For the first time, the event would be held in Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States. It may be for the first time but the intensity of the bouts to be witnessed has become stronger this time.
For the main event of the night, Mirko Filipovi? or commonly known as Cro Cop will be facing Frank Mir for the Heavyweight bout. Filipovi?’s nickname Cro Cop was derived from his membership in the Lu?ko Anti-Terrorist Unit, Croatia’s elite Police Special Forces tactical unit. Will his policeman skills beat the black belt rank of Frank Mir on both Kenpo Karate and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? Both fighters are on Southpaw stance. Mir has a greater advantage on the reach though but nonetheless, their fight is not totally mismatch. It is supposedly a rematch between Mir and Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira (Minotauro) but the latter pulled out due to knee surgery.
However, another Nogueira would be fighting anyway. He is no other than the twin brother of Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira, Antônio Rogério Nogueira. He will be facing Ryan Bader for the Light Heavyweight bout. Will Nogueira be the first person to give the first loss of Bader? He has remained undefeated for all his 11 fights wherein 5 of his wins are by way of knockout.
The third match would be the Welterweight bout of Matt Serra and Chris Lytle. Lytle has never been knocked out or submitted to defeat and has the homecourt advantage. Will the former UFC Welterweight Champion Serra be the first one to do it this time? Let’s all find out.
The two remaining bouts in the main event are for the Lightweight bout of Sean Sherk versus Evan Dunham and between Melvin Guillard versus Jeremy Stephens. Great fighters facing each other would definitely define an awesome UFC 119 event. It would be aired live on Spike TV and ESPN UK as usual on September 25th. UFC 119 Live Stream can also be viewed on various sports sites and blogs in the world wide web.
Together let’s witness these 5 great fights.
