3.0 out of 5 stars UFC 152... November 18, 2012
By A. Irey
Format:DVD
UFC 152 was a tricky event for several reasons, the first being that UFC 151 was cancelled after Dan Henderson was injured in training two weeks before his fight with Jon Jones. Initially talks of Lyoto Machida replacing Henderson were speculated but then those rumors were dismissed. Chael Sonnen had put his name forth as a replacement for Henderson but those plans were cut short very quickly. After that news broke out it felt like another batch of bad news broke out when it was publicly released that the entire event had been cancelled. There are already so many things that have been said on this so I'm going to skip over that. So, to fix up this jumble Jon Jones was then scheduled to headline UFC 152 with Vitor Belfort. With plans finalized it looked like UFC 152 was going to be a stacked card with a lot to offer.

Things started off in an odd way. Cub Swanson is good featherweight to keep track of because his fights are typically pretty exciting. He doesn't mind going to war with another fighter and that involves some bumps and bruises on his end but I have come to respect his style as a fan. His opponent, Charles Oliveira, once fought at the lightweight class but after a few bumps he chose to drop weight and has found success. The reason that this is tricky is that Oliveira was unable to get to the weight limit. A tough weight cut is indicative of a tough conditioning, and that can make a rough performance for a fighter in later rounds. Luckily, this is not the case in this fight. I'm glad to see that this was a fast pace fight, while it lasted. Shots were thrown and eventually the finish came about although it may take watching the replay to entirely understand the ending.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of Matt "The Hammer" Hamill.

4.0 out of 5 stars I WANTED VITOR TO WIN MORE THAN ANYTHING March 4, 2013
Format:DVD
UFC 152
JONES VS BELFORT

This was the event after the “lost event” thanks to one half of the main event on this card. For those who don’t know Jon Joes was set to defend his title against Dan Henderson at UFC 151. But after Dan had to pull out due to an injury the door was left open for a replacement to fight Jones. From what was said by Dana White no one in the Light-Heavyweight division wanted to take on Jones on short notice. So the very vocal Chael Sonnen said he would come up from the Middleweight division to fight Jones, Jones refused. He said he could not take on Sonnen on short notice. Funny thing is that he agreed to take on Vitor Belfort at this event who like Cheal was coming up from Middleweight and was injured. But on a great note this event would also see the debut of a new title, the Flyweight belt which is at 125 pounds.

Spoilers

1.CUB SWANSON VS CHARLES OLIVEIRA-the first fight of the night on the main card was one that we were all waiting for. Both guys had been looking good so we knew this was going to be great. The fight starts out with Charles looking for and getting the take down. It would not take long though for Cub to get back up. From there Cub would land some great body shots on his way to knocking Oliveira out. It was a crazy KO as well as he walks back at first and then his legs give out. Nice win for Cub.

2.MATT HAMIL VS ROGER HOLLETT-Matt Hamil is the UFC’s only deaf fighter who had retired a year before only to return this night. This was another fight we were excited for since “The Hammer 2” was coming back after that year off. The first round was a bit of a feeling out process until Hamil got the take down and landed blow after blow on the ground. But to Roger’s credit he got back and started to land himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Title Fights! February 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The only other good thing about getting two title fights is seeing a card that's fun to watch. This was a fun show to watch from top to bottom and well worth the money spent to watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fear and Loathing in the UFC. November 23, 2012
Format:DVD
Mixed Martial Arts from 2001-2005 was a very special time and place to be a part of.

But no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time in the world. Whatever it meant. There were remarkable Pay-per-Views in any direction, at any hour. You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever the Pride nuthuggers were doing was right, that we were winning.

And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of old and evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now, less than ten years later, you can go up to a steep hill in Las Vegas and look North to the Air Canada Center in Toronto, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

UFC 152 had two bags of Jon Jones vs. Vitor Belfort, seventy-five pellets of Michael Bisping vs. Brian Stann, five sheets of high-powered Matt Hamill, an opening bout half-full of Cub Swanson, and a whole galaxy of TJ Grants, Evan Dunhams, Sean Piersons, Roger Holletts... Also, a prelim show of Charlie Brenneman, Marcus Brimage, Lance Benoist, Jimmy Hettes. Not that Zuffa needed all that for the show, but once you get locked into a serious point fighting collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

The only thing that really worried me was Demetrius Johnson vs. Joseph Benavidez. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a couple of 125 pound men in the depths of a point fighting binge.
