Normally, you would have to pay for a $40 pay-per-view to see the world's greatest fighters compete. But UFC 75 is going to be FREE on Spike TV in the United States and A BELT IS ON THE LINE. If you are a sports fan and have never seen the UFC, this is your chance witness what everyone's talking about, without having to fork over $40.
As many of you know, the UFC is the premier mixed martial arts orginization in the world. The UFC purchased its biggest rival, Pride FC earlier this year. UFC 75 will mark the first title unification bout, with each organization's 205 pound champ fighting in the main event.
This card is stacked, and every fight has the potential to be a show stealer. Here are the two biggest fights on the card:
-Quinton Jackson 27-6 (#2 Light Heavyweight in the World) vs. Dan Henderson 22-5 (#4 Light Heavyweight in the World)
Both fighters are coming off huge knockouts of established champions. Dan Henderson is a former olympic wrestler and Rampage Jackson is a slam artist. Both are known for their superb wrestling and heavy hands. This fight is almost impossible to predict.
-Mirko Cro Cop 22-5 (#3 Heavyweight in the World) vs. Cheick Kongo 10-3
Cro Cop got his start in K-1 Kickboxing. He successfully transitioned to mixed martial arts by destroying some of the top heavyweights in Pride and winning the 16-man openweight tournament in 2006. He has amazing takedown defense and a killer left high kick. He was defeated by Gabe Gonzaga in his second UFC fight, but he's on a mission to prove that fight was a fluke. Cheick Kongo is also a skilled kickboxer and is an athletic freak. Expect tis fight to end by knockout
The fights start Saturday at 9!
