FGB Radio – WWE Elimination Chamber And UFC 110 Recaps

Big D and I are back to discuss two big shows this past weekend. WWE Elimination Chamber ended with both big belts being switched and the Undertaker now having a reason to face Shawn Michaels. We’ll talk about the matches that look to be set up for WrestleMania XXVI.

UFC 110 was a good show and we talk about all the fights. We also discuss the heavyweights in detail.

UFC 110 Play By Play – Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Vs. Cain Velasquez

It’s UFC 110 time from Australia. It looks like a really fun show on paper, but that doesn’t always translate into being a good show.

Mirko Cro Cop is fighting first, but it won’t be against Ben Rothwell who pulled out on Thursday. Australian, Anthony Perosh takes his spot. It wasn’t that long ago when a Cro Cop fight was an event in unto itself. Boy has that changed.

1. Mirko Cro Cop vs. Anthony Perosh

Perosh wanted takedown, but he couldn’t get it and every time he ended up on his back, Cro Cop let him up. Mirko was patient and though he landed some heavy left hands, didn’t really follow up on them. He easily won the first round, but in a pretty unimpressive way considering that we don’t know Perosh at all.

Perosh can take some punishment. Cro Cop nailed him with an elbow on the ground and opened up a nasty cut on his forehead over his right eye. Herb Dean asked Perosh if he wanted to continue and he did and immediately took another big shot to the face and Cro Cop went into finish mode. Perosh survived, but they ended it at the end of the round.

From Big D who will be with us for the show tonight:

It’s good to see Mirko finally get a freakin’ win in the UFC. The fight ended a lot more violently than I expected, which I think is the best for Mirko. I hope he actually gets Rothwell his next go-round.

Winner: Mirko Cro Cop by way of 2nd round TKO

2. Ryan Bader vs. Keith Jardine

UFC 110 Preview – Cain Velasquez Vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

UFC 110 comes just two weeks after UFC 109, which wasn’t a good show at all. And it’s 5 weeks before their biggest show of the year thus far, UFC 111 with Georges St. Pierre defending his title. But if you look to skip this one, it might not be the best idea.

There’s a very interesting heavyweight fight scheduled as the main event between the legendary Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and the untested, Cain Velasquez. Michael Bisping also faces Wanderlei Silva in his biggest test since getting knocked out by Dan Henderson at UFC 100.

The FGB crew has their thoughts on these two matches.

(We originally were going to preview Mirko Crocop vs. Ben Rothwell as well, but Rothwell pulled out of the fight because of injury.)

Stevie J from Angrymarks.com joined us as well.

Michael Bisping vs. Wanderlei Silva

Duan: Bisping by 2nd round TKO
Alan: Silva by 1st round TKO
Big D: Bisping by 2nd round TKO
Stevie J: Bisping 2nd round TKO
GG: Bisping by 3rd round TKO

Duan says:

This could be the end of the road for Silva. This fight has the potential to make him look very old. Bisping is younger, fresher, and moves better. I see Bisping being more precise with his striking and just taking him apart.

FGB Radio – UFC 109 Recap, Road To WrestleMania XXVI, And Boxing News

Big D and I are back to talk about UFC 109 as well as early thoughts on UFC 110.

Fun New Welterweight Fights Rumored For UFC 110

February 8th 2010 will be the annual Super Bowl Weekend UFC PPV and there are two welterweight fights that the company is trying to put together that look great.

The first one is supposedly about 80% confirmed. Frank Trigg will square off against Matt Serra. The promos to build to this one should be fun. Serra definitely needs a win so he can rematch Hughes and if he wins there, maybe he and GSP can have their rubber match. Trigg looked awful against Koscheck and really needs this win as well or else it could be bye bye.

Speaking of Koscheck, he called out Matt Hughes and UFC is trying to put Hughes vs. Koscheck together as the co-main of the show. I’m not sure Hughes wants the fight, but I think it’s a good fight for both guys. Both guys were notoriously hated at one point and loved and both are WORLD CLASS WRESTLERS.

Some fun times possibly coming early next year!
