Audra and I will be taking Hanna to her first UFC this weekend. This is kind of a trial test for Hanna to see if we will take her to my UFC in Detroit on November 20th, when I face BJ. So we’re going to go over tomorrow morning, I’ll catch the autograph session for the UFC at the weigh-ins and then have Friday night to ourselves, Saturday morning we’ll wake up and Audra has plenty of family activities planned out; then we’ll go to the fights Saturday night.
As for the fights on the card, I only want to comment on a couple of them:
Cro Cop vs. Frank Mir: Interesting fight, but I think Frank’s just got more ways to win. If it hits the ground, Frank will most definitely have the advantage. The question is can Frank get him there? The stand up could be pretty even, it just depends on which Frank Mir is going to show up for the stand up and also which Cro Cop is going to be there. They both seem a little hot and cold on their feet sometimes. So in conclusion, I would have to say that Frank has a little bit more of an advantage here.
Matt Serra vs. Chris Lytle: I really think Chris will win this fight as I thought he won the first fight, from the TUF finale. To be honest, Chris has the advantage on his feet and on the ground. I would also have to give the wrestling advantage to Chris and the only way I see Matt winning is that overhand right that he throws with his eyes closed. I don’t think Chris will let it go to a decision without it going his way.
Sean Sherk is going to fight also and I’m very interested in seeing him again. I’ve known Sean for a long time and I think he’s a good guy and I’m glad to see him getting in there again. I don’t know much about his opponent, though, so I can’t really say anything about the fight itself.
Like I said in the first paragraph, I’ll be fighting BJ on November 20th in Detroit. Dana called me less than two weeks ago and asked me to take the fight. After a brief conversation with my wife, we decided yes; so I texted Dana back and told him I’d take it. Yes, it was a sad day at the Hughes house as I had to give up quite a few hunts that I had planned in order to take the fight; but three paychecks this year will keep the wife happy.
Here is the Bible verse for this week:
