UFC 128 Shogun Rua vs Jon Jones
I watched the UFC 128 fight promo on Spike and there are potentially some very exciting match ups.
The 135lb match up between Faber and Wineland could go prove to be a serious battle between these two fast, strong and determined warriors.
While the heavyweight battle between Cro Cop and Schaub looks to offer some great hard hitting mma action.
Then of course, there is the main event between Shogun and Jones. This may very well prove to be one the toughest fights of Jones mixed martial arts career. But Shogun needs to be on top of his game or this up and coming mma warrior may take the win.
There are a couple of prelim fights on facebook:Ricardo Almeida is fighting Mike Pyle in a 170lb match up. Almeida is know for his ground game, while Pyle has a good striking and jiu-jitsu base.Kurt 'Batman' Pellegrino is battling Gleison Tibau. These two 155lb warriors are both strong in BJJ, but Pellegrino often adds body slams to his ground game.
Spike is also hosting a few prelim mma fights:A 205lb mixed martial arts fight between Luis Cane vs Elliot Marshall. Cane brings a strong striking game and good ground techniques, while Marshall is BJJ fighter.Edson Barboza vs Anthony Njokuani are in the 155lb division. Barboza is a very aggressive and explosive fighter and his opponent Njokuani has a decent striking game.
