After some thought I decided I would dedicate my blog to my favorite sport, mixed martial arts. I'll talk about new fighting news and give my opinion on the fighters and people surrounding them. This is exciting for me because it allows me to share my perspective on my favorite sport! My first piece of news I'd like to talk about is Alistair Overeem and his potential deal with the UFC. Personally, I'd love to see the deal go through because we'd see if Overeem truly is the number one heavyweight in the world. From his win of the K1 Grand Prix he had shown that he's a force to be reckoned with. He needs to be tested against other top strikers and top wrestlers though, and what better place for that to happen than in the UFC? Potential fights I'd like to see him in would be against, Junior Dos Santos, Brock Lesnar, Cain Velasquez, along with rising talent like Matt Mitrione, or Brendan Schaub. I'm anticipating further developments in this story and i hope the two sides come to agreement because everyone would win in this deal!
