UFC 103 is just a couple weeks away and I can’t wait to watch it! And while there aren’t any title fights on the line, UFC 103 features a number of interesting match ups. Plus 3 main fights are pretty much guaranteed to be stand up wars. So if you like seeing guys stand and bang then this is a must see card.
The main event features Rich Franklin vs Vitor Belfort. Rich is coming off of a win against Wanderlei Silva at UFC 99, and is on a 4 fight winning streak. Vitor belfort is coming off of a very impressive win against Matt Lindland that showcased his amazing hand speed (he ko’ed Lindland in something like 10 seconds in the first round)
Then there is Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovich vs Junior Dos Santos. Both are stand up fighters and both are looking for impressive wins as Cro Cop has made it clear he wants to get the ufc belt (and needs a few wins to get a title shot) and Santos is coming off of a tko over Werdum would love to add another win over a name fight. If you are a fan of striking, this fight will not disappoint – you know someone is going to get knocked out!
Another fight that should be a nice slugfest is Mike Swick vs Martin Kampmann. Both guys like to strike so this should be another action packed fight. Add the fights between Josh Koscheck vs Frank Trigg and Tyson Griffin vs Hermes Franca, as well as Efrain Escudero vs Cole Miller and this card looks really good
