UFC 118: BJ Penn will dominate Frankie Edgar

Penn attempted to become the first fighter to ...Image via WikipediaBJ Penn fans if you don't like what you saw last UFC 112 then here comes the former champion to regain his title back. Penn is positive that he will beat Edgar in UFC 118, but we'll see how the champion defend his title.

"At UFC 112 Frankie Edgar shocked everyone by beating BJ Penn for the UFC Lightweight Championship. But, did Edgar really beat BJ? Edgar did pull out a unanimous decision, but was it a dominant, one-sided beating? No. Not at all.
In the preview to the upcoming UFC 118, Penn is direct in mocking the new Champion who "stole" his belt. Penn challenges Edgar to "just step up and fight" and calls the way Edgar won a "joke." To say that Penn is "highly motivated" is an understatement at this point. If he loses again, then he may have to switch back..."

UFC 118 success through The Expendables

Photo: azreporter.com 
The questions on everyones mind is that, will the movie The Expendables help the upcoming UFC 118 pay-per-view success? One of the unticipated fights of UFC is the heavyweights Randy Couture and James Toney. Surely as one in the UFC Hall of Fame, Couture will play a role in it's success.

"Sylvester Stallone's new action throwback "The Expendables" made serious bank this weekend, coming in at #1 in the box office and raking in an estimated $35 million, beating "Eat Pray Love" ($23.7mil), as well as "Scott Pilgrim"($10.5mil).

UFC Hall of Famer, Randy Couture, was one of the headlining names of this summer block buster, and with UFC 118 less than two weeks away, the timing couldn't be better for Randy, and the UFC."

UFC 118: Penn speaks

Check out what BJ Penn said to his upcoming fight on UFC 118 with Frankie Edgar. This fight will be a rematch for the crown of UFC Lightweight champion. Boston, Massachusetts fans will be pleased to see the live action of this fight as so with other octagon fighters.

Penn said:

“If anyone thinks I’m in Hilo sitting on my ass, they’re crazy. They don’t have much to work with, they’ve only got Frankie Edgar. I’m not afraid to exchange with him in any way [but] I don’t think he wants to exchange with me. He’s going to be running around. He’s just going to try and jazz up what he did last time. A little quicker, a little better, maybe throw a kick.”
“He can run around all he wants, sooner or later he’s going to have to step up to me and he’s going to have to do something and when that happens, that’s going to be the time. I’m going to knock him out or submit him or slam him on his head and have him get knocked out from that. I’m all about finishing my guy and I cannot wait to finish him. After it’s done I want him to look at me and think ‘That’s what it’s like to fight BJ Penn, that’s what it’s like to fight the world champion."

In Austin, Texas, former UFC fighter Roger Huerta was seen and involved in a fight, when a women was hit at the back of his head by a guy. Huerta didn't like what he saw and take off his shirt and beat the guy 'till he is KO.

Though the fight with the man was not taken on film, the man was laying on the ground.

Roger Huerta speaks about  the fight:

From TMZ:
“I approached the man calmly and said, “Do you know what you just did?  You just knocked out this girl.. [He responds ‘F*ck you, f*ck these bitches, I’ll knock out any f*ckin’ bitch that I wanna f*ckin’ knock out, I’ll knock your f*cking bitch ass out.’ … As he’s saying this, he’s taking off his shirt … and at that point I was like, alright. I got the better of him and I left. If that was my mom, if that was my sister, my spouse, anyone … I would’ve wanted someone to step in and do something about it.”

Anderson Silva arrogant or not?

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fans saw every Silva's fight, some are lame fight because of his skill, power and mental preparation opponents end up back-pedaling and running from him.

Here Anderson Silva talks about him of being arrogant or not, you decide for yourself:

UOL: Are you arrogant?

Anderson Silva: I don’t think so. Am I being arrogant?

UOL: No.

AS: I can't please everyone. When you become world-known in a sport you become the target of cheap talking. It's necessary to watch yourself because any wrong attitude ends showing an opposite image of what you actual represented.

UOL: Is there somebody better than you in MMA nowadays?

AS: There is always someone better. There are many in my division like Chael Sonnen, who is a great opponent. In his attributes, he’s better than me.

UOL: You hold the UFC consecutive wins record. Does this bother the UFC?

AS: There’s always bother, right? Even more so with me being a Brazilian. I’m happy in the UFC but this sequence of wins bothers them because the promoters think the fights end up losing their intrigue and that people now want to see Anderson Silva lose. But it’s normal, just business.

UOL: You made some sensational entrances before fights and celebrate effusively when you win. Don’t you think these attitudes show off an arrogant image?

AS: I didn’t get where I am by being arrogant. I respect all opponents, curb smack-talking before the fight and inside the ring I go there and do my job. That is: come back healthy to my house. Of course its true that, because of the difficulty of the task, you wind up celebrating big after victory. It’s at least four months of intense preparation. It’s not something easy.

UOL: Is your fight stategy always to look for the KO from the beginning, or does your strategy change according to the fighter?

AS: You got a specific camp for each fight. Against Demian, for example, I trained more grappling but he didn’t manage to take me down and I kept standing the whole time. But each fight is an individual case and they never go the way we had trained for. You surprise them or you’re surprised.

UOL: Are you angry at your adversaries? Does it help your performance?

AS: I don’t feel angry. I think versus Demian I showed a bit more of that energy for the first time. I’m always calm, just get into the cage and fight. It’s a chess game where whoever makes the wrong move ends up knocked out.
