MMA Rumors and Rematches

"She looks like she's down."

Lots of M.M.A. rumors floating around the net lately.  One of them being an immediate rematch with Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. Many fans on the underground have been asking for this since the Pound for Pound king was pushed to the brink (not to mention being hit more than all of his previous UFC bouts combined) and nearly losing. It doesn’t look like this will happen since Anderson is out of commission for a while due to a rib injury.

What will most likely take place is a number one contender spot for the next shot at Anderson before he moves to light heavyweight.  He has still yet to fight Vitor Belfort, who he was suppose to fight back at UFC 112. Another contender is Okami who has a win via DQ over the champ at rumble on the rock.  Nothing has been said by the UFC or any of the fighters except Vitor, who does not want to wait for Anderson.

Another rematch that might take place in the future is former #1 heavy weight king Fedor Emelianenko and Fabricio Werdum.  It looks like Fedor will resign with Strikeforce and wait for Werdum to recover from an elbow injury.  As much as I want to see Fedor redeem himself, I’d much rather see Werdum fight Overeem.  Yeah, I know it’s another rematch but Overeems been eating horsemeat and has been streamrolling his opponents in M.M.A. and in K-1.

Thats pretty much it. Oh and don’t watch UFC illegally on the internet. Seems like UFC is going after the people that watch the illegal stream from justin.tv and from ustream. So if you’re going to watch it, make sure its at someone else’s house.
