It's a huge day of mixed martial arts.

WSOF 11 has Gaethje vs Newell for the lightweight title, plus John Fitch vs Rousimar Palhares  Jake Shields  Josh Burkman Dennis Hallman (Unless Hallman has to pull out and Fitch gets a 5th scheduled opponent at the last minute).

Prelims stream at 2 PM ET on MMAjunkie.com.  I don't have the precise link yet, but they should have it closer to fight time.

Main card is at 4 PM ET on the main NBC broadcast network, moving up from the cable NBC Sports Network for the first time.

www.tapology.com

UFC 175 is one of the biggest events of the year, with two title fights and several other big names. No Chael Sonnen vs Wanderlei Silva, though, due to roids.

Early prelims on UFC Fight Pass at 7 PM
Televised prelims, headlined by Uriah Faber vs Bruce Leeroy, at 8 PM ET on Fox Sports 1
Main card on pay per view at 10 PM ET

I'll miss WSOF 11, since I'll be at the UFC Fan Expo and TUF 19 Finale weigh-ins at that time, and probably won't comment much on UFC 175 until after I get back to my room after the fights.

Today I went to the UFC 175 weigh-ins at the Mandalay Bay and then to Lion Fights 16 Muay Thai at the Palms

Huge crowd at the weigh-ins.  The other two times I went to weigh-ins at the Mandalay Bay, I was able to get a lot closer to the stage.  This time there were THOUSANDS of people there, and even with the 30 minute early entry for Fight Club members, I was quite a way from the stage. And incidentally, I've never seen so many dudebros in my life.

Because of distances, and bright lights intermittently pointed in my direction, I didn't get very many good weigh-in pictures.  Here are a few:

Uriah Faber

Alex "Bruce Leeroy" Caceres

Meathead

Stefan Struve.  Even at the distance I was, it was easy to tell how big he is.  7 footers stick out in a crowd.

Ronda

Lyoto Machida

Chris Weidman

And of course...ring girls

Off on another part of the floor, they were setting up to do a UFC Tonight broadcast after the weigh ins.  I couldn't stay to see the show, but here they are setting up;


Daniel Cormier, Brian Stann, part of Jay Glaser's head and Meisha Tate

Then off to Lion Fights 16 a few miles north at the Palms.

During the prelims, they were doing a live broadcast of Inside MMA, with Bas and Rice  up on a stage with their backs to the ring.  I thought it was interesting that in addition to the teleprompter, they had a screen with the graphics so they could tell what was on the screen with them while they were talking.

The muay thai fights were pretty good.  Here's just a few pics of the co-main with Tiffany Van Soest

Half of these are flat-out guesses on my part (I really don't know much about the Prelim fighters), but I feel pretty good about most of my picks for the PPV.

Wife and I are both sick and camped out on the couch, so we will both be watching WSOF and UFC 175.

She watches MMA because I do, and she's a great sport about it. Yesterday she did a fantastic impression of Bruce Buffer introducing a fighter, got everything in the right order, too. I've made her watch a lot of these things with me.

Her Dad wanted her to do kickboxing. I want her to do Judo. She's a gentle soul though. 6' tall pseudo-Olympic thrower just going to waste, ha!

/5' 5 & 3/4"
//much more angry
///not a fraction of the athlete she is
////Olympic trial qualifier twice
//she can throw me :(

This Hallman farker needs to die already.

First, he has 41 subs in 53 wins, AND I've seen his farking ball on a big screen television.

Impression me or GTFO.

I was thinking of several people I wanted to die in horrible ways.  Went to the Dana Q & A. and at least half of the people asking questions wanted a personal favor.  "Dana, I've designed a UFC fighter haircut poster that I want to license for barber shops"  "Dana, you need a heavyweight champ procurement executive in the UFC.  I have 30 years experience."  Dana, I'm a ring announcer in Canada.  You need an Ultimate Fighter -like program to find an eventual replacement for Bruce Buffer."  "Dana, I want to be your intern."

Crap it pissed me off.  You'd think they'd figure out that if their business proposals got no traction through normal channels, odds are the idea sucks and hijacking a Q and A at the Fan Expo wouldn't fly either.

DUDE.

TWO FARKING ILLEGAL KNEES AND A FENCE GRAB THAT SHOOK THE ENTIRE WALL?

These refs need their entire families to die.  Fark these useless farks.
 
2014-07-05 05:27:04 PM  
Had a hard time picking against Newell.  Seems like a good guy, and legit fighter, but I just thought Gaethje was better.
 
2014-07-05 05:31:15 PM  
Got a perfect on that, but sad to see it happen.
 
2014-07-05 05:34:00 PM  
Two illegal knees, a blatant fence grab, and he didn't even get the other fighter away when the doctors were looking at the cut.

Get that farker to the opposite, independent corner.

That ref should be ashamed of himself.

Just got back from work.  It sucks Newell lost, I really like him, but it's still early in his career.  He can still get better.

What an awesome main event with tremendous stakes. Weidman wins, he's top 3 p4p and a legit star. Machida wins, and his resume is among the elite of all-time in the sport.

It also just happens that Machida is a worse style matchup for Weidman than Silva, and that both of these fuys are fenerally undervalued by fans, so my intrigue for this ine is off the damn charts.
 
2014-07-05 08:18:49 PM

If he can figure out the overhand right he cant lose.


Once he got to a certain level, that was going to be his kryptonite. Just simple physics. Tough guy, just not built for this sport at its elite level. Plenty of other things he can do with his life, would like to see him hang the gloves up.

I love Ronda to shreds, but somebody's gonna have her number one of these days... lest we forget, Carmouche almost surprised her in 157.
