Preview: UFC 60
Preview: UFC 60
With a lull in the boxing schedule, my cousin Scott "Spoon" Swerbinsky is here to preview tonight's UFC 60, which features an epic featured match between UFC legend Royce Gracie and current king Matt Hughes. Spoon also breaks down all the other fights on the card in this preview piece.
This Saturday night at the Staples Center, a legend is coming back to where he belongs. UFC 1 champion Royce Gracie returns to the octagon he helped build. Standing across from him is going to be current king Matt Hughes. What a night for the rapidly growing sport. The all time legend that even casual fans know vs the reigning Welterweight champion.
This is one of the most anticipated fights I can ever remember. Old versus the new. two very different styles. Can Hughes manhandle the undefeated submission artist like some people think? Will Gracie choke out the overpowering wrestler? Both of those questions will be answered come Saturday night.
I can’t wait to find out.
I have been going back and forth in my thinking on what is going to happen. I can see Matt Hughes being able to control the fight both standing up trading punches and also with his awesome ground and pound game. Then I think to myself, Royce Gracie is one of the founding fathers of this great sport and has seen everything that can possibly happen to him. So where does that leave me? On the edge of my seat, waiting for the fight to start.
That is where everyone should be so they don’t miss this awesome event that the UFC has put together.
There are a few other must see matches on this card also:
Joe Riggs vs Mike Swick
Another fight I am PUMPED for. Swick is a fast rising star from the Ultimate fighter show taking on a UFC vet and bad ass Riggs. This could be a fireworks show.
Diego Sanchez vs John Alessio
The undefeated Sanchez put that record on the line against another long time tough guy. I wouldn’t be surprised is Diego tastes defeat for the first time as a pro.
Brandon Vera vs Assuerio Silva
Vera is a serious contender in the Heavyweight division. A win here should get him a title shot very soon. Silva in his last fight lost to current champ Tim Sylvia by decision.
Dean Lister vs Allessio Sakara
Lister is finally making his UFC debut. He is a submission wiz and training partner of Tito Ortiz. Sakara returns for his 3rd UFC fight.
Talk about must see TV. I know damn well where I’ll be Saturday night.
Enjoy the show. I know I will.
