Quite a Week For Fight Announcements

It’s been quite a week for fight announcements in MMA. Let’s break it down.

Dana White and the UFC announced that Cain Velasquez will fight Junior dos Santos on the first UFC on FOX event November 12th. That will be for the UFC heavyweight title. Just days later, another huge fight was announced for that card. Ben Henderson will fight Clay Guida, the winner sure to get a shot at the lightweight title.

Henderson is coming off the best win of his career, a complete throttling of Jim Miller. Guida has been notching wins and most recently made easy work of Anthony “Showtime” Pettis. This event should be epic with these two fights.

Those were huge announcements but then another bomb was dropped when it was revealed that not only had Alistair Overeem signed with the UFC, he is already scheduled to fight Brock Lesnar on December 30th at UFC 141. This is an intense matchup. Lesnar will have to deal with an exceptional striker, while Overeem will have to keep the fight standing. Overeem’s gas tank was also called into question after his last fight, but Lesnar has gone a year without fighting.

And finally, Fedor announced his return to M-1 with a fight against Jeff Monson on November 12th in Russia. Monson has always wanted to fight Fedor and now he’ll get his wish. This is a solid matchup for Fedor and I think he’ll get a win here.
