October 21 Jonas Brothers. For Lehner, the attraction to MMA also was part of a desire to improve his fitness after being slowed by injuries during the past two seasons. The MMA meets twice each year.
Michael Johnson vs.
The now well documented backstage altercation between Lobov and Khabib Nurmagomedov was the catalyst that intensified the flames of the already ignited rivalry between the aforementioned Nurmagomedov and Lobov teammate, Conor McGregor. Despite the fight not taking place this weekend, and the possibility of Tukhugov being released from the UFC for his involvement in the brawl, Lobov has vowed to follow Tukhugov to any promotion in the world to get a piece of the Dagestani.
I want to see it happen. If anything, it will add another wrinkle in the ongoing McGregor-Khabib beef that will undoubtedly result in a rematch resulting in boatloads of cash.
From a fight standpoint, Johnson is the better fighter and the superior athlete, so at the very least, you could be tuning in to watch a major upset should Lobov pull off the win. Rodrigo Cavalheiro vs.
The main event of Brave 17 on Saturday, live from Pakistan, will pit a menacing Brazilian vet against a highly touted, undefeated Russian prospect in the welterweight division. Abdouraguimov looks the part of a future title contender in any organization he chooses to sign with.
The undefeated Russian is still just years-old and is with all wins coming via stoppage.
His last fight ended in the very first round after he absolutely pummeled a game Sidney Wheeler with ground strikes at Brave The Brazilian bruiser will have the height advantage and is coming off a two-fight win streak, all under the Brave banner. This is going to be a good one.
Just make sure you set your alarms as this card kicks off at 7 am EST. Volkan Oezdemir vs.
Across the Octagon from him will be the year-old Smith making his third appearance for the UFC at lb. Despite having amassed 43 pro fights at the age of 30, the hype for Smith has never been higher.
Smith will look to prove that the moving up in weight has turned him into a true title contender and not just someone who has benefited from opponents who were at the end of their careers.
Oezdemir lands a whopping 5.
Canada will be spoiled with two big, tall dudes who specialize in removing their opponents from consciousness. Empty your bladder and crack a fresh beer before these two enter the cage because this one could be over in an instant.
Enjoy the fights!
