I bet the followers of this site and people who know me were wondering when this story was going to go up? I apologize its taken me two days to do so but never fear because here it is.
The UFC announced on Thursday that two very intriguing bouts have been added to the March 21st card of Fight Night62. Fight Night62 will take place in Rio de Janeiro Brazil and will be headlined by a Battwmweight bout featuring Uriajh Faber and Raphael Assuncao
Now as for the two fights added to the card those fights include a match up in the featherweight division between Godofredo Pepey and team alpha male’s Andre Fili and of corse the fight that has yours truly marking out like any fan should, a bout in the women’s Battwmweight division between standout Amanda Nunes and WMMA pioneer (and an ongoing supporter of this site and someone who I call a friend) the one and only Shayna Baszler
Ok I know that intro may be a bit bias and journalism isn’t suppose to have any bias but can you blame me?
Ok moving on. On a serious note both women in this fight are looking for redemption. Amanda Nunes is coming off a lost over Cat Zingano from September as where Shayna Baszler is coming off a lost against Bethe Correia from August.
Many people also believe this is a must win situation for Baszler having lost her last two fights. Either way this fight should be a good one. Might I add that this is the 2nd time in less then a year Baszler has been matched up against a Brazilian and with the event taking place in Brazil Baszler is sure to be met with boos but that’s ok though since the Queen of Spades likes to embrace the HEEL character she should feel right at home.
So tell me which of these two bouts are you most excited to see? Or is it another bout on the card that your excited for? The full fight card can be seen here:
155 lbs.: Josh Thomson vs. Gilbert Burns
170 lbs.: Erick Silva vs. Ben Saunders
170 lbs.: Demian Maia vs. Ryan LaFlare
170 lbs.: Ryan LaFlare vs. Demian Maia
155 lbs.: Leonardo Santos vs. Matt Wiman
155 lbs.: Cain Carrizosa vs. Leonardo Mafra
170 lbs.: Drew Dober vs. Leandro Silva
155 lbs.: Akbarh Arreola vs. Francisco Trinaldo
145 lbs.: Andre Fili vs. Godofredo Pepey
135 lbs.: Shayna Baszler vs. Amanda Nunes
You know that yours truly will be rooting for the Queen of Spades all the way and in truth is the only reason I’ll be tuning in to this event, and who knows maybe you guys can expect an interview with Baszler before or after the fight so STAY TUNED for more details.
The match up order has yet to be announced but the main card will take place on Fox Sports1 as the prelims will take place on UFC FIGHT PASS
Dixie Carter announced on Twitter that Ross and Marshall Von Erich will be making their returns to TNA at next month’s Impact Wrestling tapings from Universal Studios. Their father, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Von Erich, will also be appearing. Dixie wrote:
In his weekly interview with Michael Cole, Triple H discusses why he’s dealing with the fallout from this year’s Royal Rumble match personally during Monday’s Raw.
It was just announced on UFC’s official website that due to a rib injury UFC’s middleweight champion Chris Weidman will be unable to defend his title against challenger Vitor Bellfort.
Due to this untimely injury the championship bout between Women’s Battwmweight champion Ronda Rousey and Challenger Cat Zingano will now be the main event, and the bout between debuting Holy Holm vs Raquel Pennington will now be the co main event!
This is huge news because this is the first time in the history of the UFC that wmma bouts have been both co main and main event on a card. Well I’m sad that Chris Weidman will be unable to compete I’m also overjoyed over this chance that the women in the sport are getting. It’s been a long time coming and it shows that the sport has come a long way.
UFC184 is set to take place Saturday February 28th live from the staple center in Los Angeles California. The event will be live on PPV and UFC fight pass at 7pmPST/10pmEST.
With all that being said on behalf of everyone else we would like to wish Chris Weidman a speedy recovery.
How do you feel about this announcement? Are you happy that it’ll be a night for the ladies to prove that they belong? Let us know what you think.

There is a lot of speculation about the promo from Bray Wyatt on last night’s Live WWE SmackDown. Speculation is that Bray Wyatt was talking about The Undertaker.
In the promo, Wyatt mentioned that he fears nothing living or dead and said after what he does next, it will be hard for the WWE Universe to ever smile again.
At last word, WWE officials were not sure of The Undertaker’s status for WrestleMania 31, but now with the Royal Rumble over, WWE likely got an answer and it appears they are moving forward with the feud.
