UFC on FOX 26 Fight Card

UFC on FOX 26 Fight Card

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

The octagon will return to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on December 16 for UFC on FOX 26.

The fight card is already beginning to take shape with numerous high profile fights recently being made official by the promotion.

The UFC on FOX 26 event will be headlined by a welterweight scrap between former division champion Robbie Lawler squaring off with former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.

UFC President Dana White has already stated that the winner of the “Ruthless” vs “RDA” fight will get the next shot at current UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.

Robbie Lawler was last seen in action at July’s UFC 214 event where he scored a unanimous decision victory over a very game Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. Lawler has won six of his past seven fights overall with his lone setback in that time coming to Tyron Woodley at UFC 201.

Meanwhile, Rafael dos Anjos was most recently competed at UFC 215 in September where he scored a first-round submission victory over Neil Magny. “RDA” has gone 2-0 since moving up to the UFC’s 170-pound weight class.

In the co-main event of the evening, former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo will look to get back in the win column when he rematches perennial contender Ricardo Lamas.

Aldo and Lamas first met at UFC 169 in February of 2014, with the Brazilian emerging victorious by way of a five-round unanimous judges decision.

Jose Aldo surrendered his featherweight gold to Max Holloway in his last octagon appearance at June’s UFC 212 event by way of third-round TKO.

As for Lamas, the former featherweight title challenger has scored two straight finish victories over Jason Knight (TKO) and Charles Oliveira (submission).

Also featured on the card is a key light heavyweight fight between former title challenger Glover Teixeira and surging division contender Misha Cirkunov.

If that wasn’t enough to get you motivated, welterweight sluggers Mike Perry and Santiago Ponzinibbio will also be throwing down at the now highly anticipated December 16 event.

The current UFC on FOX 26 lineup looks as follows:

Welterweight: Robbie Lawler vs. Rafael dos Anjos

Featherweight: José Aldo vs. Ricardo Lamas

Welterweight: Santiago Ponzinibbio vs. Mike Perry

Welterweight: Jordan Mein vs. Erick Silva

Light Heavyweight: Glover Teixeira vs. Misha Cirkunov

Light Heavyweight: Antônio Rogério Nogueira vs. Jared Cannonier

Flyweight: Tim Elliott vs. Justin Scoggins

Welterweight: Chad Laprise vs. Galore Bafondo

Middleweight: Alessio Di Chirico vs. Oluwale Bamgbose

Middleweight: Vitor Miranda vs. Julian Marquez

Welterweight: Nordine Taleb vs. Sultan Aliev

Lightweight:John Makdessi vs. Abel Trujillo

New York Giants lose star receiver Odell Beckham to injury!

New York Giants lose star receiver Odell Beckham to injury!

By: Chris Taylor (Kalapaki Joe’s Staff Writer)

Things just went from bad to worse for the New York Giants.

The G-Men will be without their star receiver Odell Beckham for at least eight weeks after he suffered a broken ankle in Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

The injury occurred with just over four minutes to play in today’s final quarter when Beckham landed awkwardly after trying to leap up and catch a high pass from quarterback Eli Manning.

Beckham was carted off the field in tears, an image that pretty much sums up New York’s dismal 2017 season.

With Sunday’s 27-22 loss to the Chargers, the Giants fell to 0-5 on the season.

The octagon will return to Madison Square Garden in New York next month for UFC 217.

The pay-per-view fight card, which takes place November 4, will be headlined by a middleweight title fight featuring current champion Michael Bisping taking on former welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre.

Michael Bisping was last seen in action at October of 2016’s UFC 204 event in Manchester where he scored a hard fought unanimous decision victory over mixed martial arts legend Dan Henderson.

Prior to that, Bisping was coming off a first-round knockout victory over Luke Rockhold which earned “The Count” the UFC’s middleweight title.

As for Georges St-Pierre, the former UFC welterweight kingpin has not fought since November of 2013 where he defeated Johny Hendricks via split-decision.

Georges St-Pierre interview with Joe rogan

“Rush” is currently riding a twelve fight win streak with includes victories over Nick Diaz, BJ Penn, Matt Serra, Matt Hughes, Thiago Alves, Jon Fitch, Jake Shields and Carlos Condit.

If Georges St-Pierre can defeat Michael Bisping at UFC 217 he will become only the fourth fighter in UFC history to hold UFC titles in two different divisions. Randy Couture, BJ Penn and Conor McGregor are the only fighters in UFC history to have achieved this accomplishment.

UFC 217 includes a total of three title fights.

In the co-main event of UFC 217 bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt will attempt to make his first title defense when he squares off with bitter rival and former division title holder TJ Dillashaw.

Also on the card is a women’s strawweight title fight featuring Rose Namajunas challenging long time title holder Joanna “Champion”.

Who do you think comes out victorious when Bisping and St-Pierre square off at Madison Square Garden on November 4?
