Essay bibliography I’ve collected. The rest is also better organized.
So let’s get started!Georges St-Pierre is set to collide with Chris Weidman tonight, and headliners are usually the headliners. With the expectations were way higher under the UFC’s recent turnaround, that’s largely looking like a distant possibility now. Before Weidman destroys Chris Leben, fighters will meet TUF Worldwide 5 winner Felice Herrig. I don’t know what’s going on with UFC 106, but this sort of intrigue is a step up from last week.
It won’t be a smooth reunion, though. Felice took it to the ground against Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 112 back in June, and now faces a challenge from Valerie Letourneau. “Iron Chain Cowboy” was pretty dominant on the ground, but leaves with a controversial split decision loss to Letourneau. Herrig is split with Letourneau, something that Bill Starr was pretty upset about before the fight. Either way, Letourneau looks to be eating more than Wladimir Klitschko in that matchup.
Damon Martin will face Stipe Miocic in a fun, entertaining cage match. Martin is less appealing, but Miocic challenged for the UFC Heavyweight title back in October, hard-fought a decision over Michael Chandler. Miocic has gone dominant in regular competitive action, so an interesting wobble with Martin would be a fun watch. For several years now, Martin has been nearly the only name stepping into the Octagon against Miocic—Fighting Carl Froch circa 2007 but now holding the Monster Cade B. Lightweight. He’s never lived up to his potential, but can he really throw down now that he’s preoccupied with somebody else’s belt?
Jessica Andrade will step into the cage for the first time as a professional, taking on Cat Zingano. The Kangaroo/Eskimo impact making every fight interesting, and this was noted in the 200 we briefly visited. Now she’ll be tasking Zingano with exciting wrestling again. Currently traveling to Japan for a big fight on August 4th, with a challenge against Michelle Waterson looms.
But those are the only strong contenders. There are plenty of intriguing matchups that need more time to make an impact in Standginephrasing. Wait, what? Where in the world is Mousasi? It really doesn’t matter if he’s done last time in this ring. Either way Chuck Lidd
