UFC 187 SATURDAY PITS CORMIER VS JOHNSON

Los Angeles, CA- A new UFC light heavyweight champion will be crowned on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. Anthony “Rumble” Johnson (19-4) will take on Daniel Cormier (15-1) for the title left vacant by the stupidity of former champion Jon Jones (21-1).  For those who don’t know, the UFC finally stripped Jon Jones of his belt after Jones hit-and-ran a pregnant woman after he smashed into her in his rental car.  The woman ended up with a broken arm and Jones ended up title-less.

WHICH CORMIER WILL SHOW UP?

Daniel Cormier is coming off his first loss as a professional fighter.  It was a fairly wide points loss to Jones that saw the former Olympian unable to out-wrestle the champion.  It was a demoralizing defeat in a high profile fight that had been hyped by the media for months.  There was a disdain shared for one another by the fighters.

WILL JONES LOSS AFFECT THE OLYMPIAN?

DIRRELL-DEGALE FOR IBF TITLE ON NBC

MICHIGAN NATIVE FACES BRIT IN BOSTON?

Las Vegas, NV- Influential boxing manager Al Haymon’s “dog and pony show”, also known as Premier Boxing Champions, goes on the road Saturday, this time making it’s way to the obscure Agganis Arena in Boston Massachusetts. In the main event Andre Dirrell (24-1, 16 KOs) of Flint, Michigan, faces 2008 Olympic Gold medalist James DeGale (20-1, 14 KOs) of London, England for the vacant IBF super-middleweight title. The fight will be broadcast live on NBC at 130pm PST/430pm EST.

DIRRELL INACTIVE, DEGALE ON A ROLL

DeGale is the fighter that appears to have good momentum going into this match. In his last fight he was impressive in stopping former world title challenger Marco Antonio Perban in three rounds. In his previous bout before hand he stopped Andre Ward’s stablemate Brandon Gonzalez(18-0 at the time) inside of four frames. Ironically Dirrell has only fought five times within the last five years. The opposition during that span isn’t even worth the mention.
