Sanchez may fight Stevenson

Diego Sanchez’s first venture into the lightweight division may pit him against another TUF winner. Sanchez has verbally agreed to face TUF season 2 winner, Joe “Daddy” Stevenson at UFC 95.

Sanchez informed the public via myspace that he would be dropping down to 155 earlier this month. “The Nightmare” dropped two straight decisions to American Kickboxing Academy welterweights, Josh Koscheck and Jon Fitch back in 2007.

Stevenson’s most recent venture into the Octagon ended badly for the former title contender. Kenny Florian forced “Daddy” to tap out in the first round of their UFC 91 bout. Once at number one contender status, Stevenson has dropped two of his last three bouts.

UFC 92: The Ultimate 2008 card finalized

The UFC has announced their full lineup for the December 27th event, dubbed “The Ultimate 2008.” This card is stacked from top to bottom, with two titles on the line and many other explosive matchups.

Rampage Jackson faces Wanderlei Silva in what promises to be an MMA fan’s dream fight. As many may remember, Silva won the first two times these gladiators faced off; both times in the Pride Fighting Championships and both times in impressive knockout fashion.

Wanderlei would like to put together a win streak and build upon his last victory, while Rampage looks to avenge his two previous losses to Silva, and hopefully get back in line for a shot at the UFC LHW Title. As most know, there is genuinely bad blood between these two so look for sparks to fly.

Vinny Magalhaes’ future in MMA

It is said that everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame. Some shine, some dont. In the case of Vinny “Pezao” Magalhaes, his 15 minutes could last a bit longer if he works on his standup.

In a TUF Finale post fight interview, Vinny admits that his standup is “horrible”. Vinny is a grappler, that is his bread and butter, but to last in MMA jiu-jitsu alone does not make a champion.

Vinicius ‘Pezao’ Magalhaes is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and hails from Gracie Humaita in Rio de Janeiro, the school founded by Helio Gracie. To say that Vinny knows his jiu-jitsu is an understatement. He has been heralded as quite possibly the top BJJ practitioner in the world.
