There is only one man in the entire Heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC who can dethrone the current champion Cain Velasquez and take his title from him and according to Daniel Cormier, that man is Junior dos Santos. Cormier is currently competing in the heaviest division of the UFC himself and he recently made a winning start to his career in the promotion with an emphatic decision win over former UFC Heavyweight champion Frank Mir in a recent match-up.
However, as long as his team mate Velasquez is still the champion, DC has admitted that he would not seek a shot at the title and it is only a matter of time before he drops down to the 205 lbs Light Heavyweight division and seek out the reigning UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Those plans, however, do not prevent DC from forming his own opinion about the opponents likely for his team mate and friend Cain Velasquez and ahead of UFC 160, where the champion will take on Antonio ‘Big Foot’ Silva in a title match; Cormier sees dos Santos as the only credible threat to the title of the Cuban American.
Junior dos Santos will take on Mark Hunt in a number one contender’s match on the under card of the same event and according to Cormier, no fighter is beating Cain, simply because they are not good enough.
Daniel Cormier admitted that right now, there are many great fighters in the division but the biggest threat to the title for Cain Velasquez is Junior dos Santos. He further mentioned that the rest are just not good enough to defeat him and if dos Santos doesn’t defeat Hunt, Velasquez will be able to rest quite easily and will know his title is safe.
Angelina Love is a professional wrestler from Canada, best known for the stint she had with Total Non Stop Action or TNA Wrestling, where she has been a five-time Women’s Knockout champion, which is a record in the promotion and has also been the Knockouts Tag Team champion on another occasion with Winter as her partner. She is also very active outside the TNA circuit where she works under the name Angel Williams. Her first stint with wrestling came way back in 2000 as she started working in independent circuits under the Angel Williams ring name
She was inspired by the World Wrestling Entertainment or WWE legend Shawn Michaels, who was her favorite wrestler to take up the entertainment form as a profession. She joined the TNA where she started off as valet to various wrestlers including Chris Sabin as well as Eric Young. Soon, Angelina Love began to train to become a professional wrestler and started off on TNA Explosion.
While she was travelling and performing throughout the United States of America, she was spotted by the talent scouts of the WWE who invited her to trial and she trained for some time with Ohio Valley Wrestling or OVW and was given a developmental contract by the promotion. However, she did not make any televised appearance for the WWE and when her contract with OVW expired; she was released from the promotion.
Angelina Love was contacted by the TNA to be a part of Bound for Glory, their annual pay per view event, an offer which she accepted and she signed a contract with the promotion, going on to become one of the most recognizable faces for the promotion, and making the women’s wrestling department of the promotion more popular than the WWE’s at one point in time too.
Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson ended his career in the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC having lost all of his last three bouts with the promotion and left the company with a heavy heart and a feeling of disappointment at not being treated properly and fairly by the company and its officials. But he is sure that the UFC will miss him and his presence and so will the fans now that he has left the company for good and maybe realize that they hadn’t done the right thing with him.
Speaking to Inside MMA, Jackson stated that if anyone asked him, he would state that it wasn’t his but the UFC’s loss. He added that he wasn’t lost without the promotion because he has options in his hand; he can go to any other Mixed Martial Arts promotion in the world and still have a hugely successful career with it. Jackson spent years with PRIDE, and at one point in time, it seemed that he would not leave the promotion and retire from it.
But he did leave PRIDE to join the UFC and according to him, after he left PRIDE, he forgot about it completely and added that the same thing will happen now that he has left the UFC. In just his second appearance on the UFC fight card, Jackson went on to win the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship and would then go on to unify the title with the PRIDE Middleweight Championship later in that same year.
Jackson finished his career in the UFC with a record of 4-4 and according to Dana White, the president of the UFC, they have three months to match any offer the fighter is given but added that he doesn’t think that Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson has any sort of future in the company.
Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC is already on the road to recovery after going under the knife for an extensive surgery on his ear. Speaking to MMAFighting.com, the boss man of the UFC stated that his surgery was a success and what was more was that he had already been discharged from the clinic and was flying back to his home in Las Vegas, Nevada. The surgery took place in Los Angeles, California at the House Ear Institute, one of the most renowned ear institutes in the country.
The 43 year old head honcho of UFC had been suffering from Ménière’s disease for almost over a year now but so busy was his schedule that he could only manage time for the surgery last Tuesday. Ménière’s disease is an extremely rare disease and has been defined as “is a disorder of the inner ear that causes spontaneous episodes of vertigo — a sensation of a spinning motion — along with fluctuating hearing loss, ringing in the ear, and sometimes a feeling of fullness or pressure in your ear.”
White gave the interview to MMAFighting.com via text message where he wrote that although he had some soreness, the doctors believe that it would go away in a few days. He went on to confirm that following the surgery, he would not be able to take the flight to Brazil for UFC on FOX 7 this weekend, adding that the surgery will go a long way in curing the excruciating pain he had been suffering.
The disease had already made him miss his first ever UFC event in 11 years in 2012 when he had to give UFC on FUEL TV 3 a miss due to the initial bouts of the disease back in May at Fairfax.
