A few days pass and a few more fights made official as this weekends edition of Round-Up will be sure to raise some eyebrows as more cards start to finalize.
UFC Fight Night Albuquerque
This New Mexico card will now be overstocked with fire works from this next fight being made official.
Diego “The Dream” Sanchez (24-7) will face “The Real Deal” Ross Pearson (15-6-1) it what will surely be a show stealing affair between two bangers. Diego will be gunning for a stoppage victory after only winning a single fight in his last four outings with all losses coming by decision including his last two to Myles Jury and Gilbert Melendez. Ross has avoided leaving fights in the hands of the judges by having his last two victories come in the form of TKO over Ryan Couture and George Sotiropolis.
UFC Fight Night Berlin
The German card will play host to the return of The Doberman.
C.B. Dollaway (14-5) will look to build off of his explosive TKO over the heavily touted Cezar Ferreira who could only last 39 seconds with the Ultimate Fighter Season 7 runner up. He will face GSP protege Francis Carmont (22-8) who will look to rebound after having an 11 fight win streak snapped by Jacare Souza at UFC Fight Night 36.
A middleweight contest was also added to the card.
Undefeated Polish prospect Krzysztof Jotko (14-0) will dance with Sweden stalwart Magnus Cedenblad (11-4). Magnus displayed his high class skill in his last outing against Jared Hamman, submitting him via gulliotine in under a minute at UFC 164. Jotko had his hand raised in his UFC debut in a decision victory over Bruno Santos at UFC Fight Night 33.
Robbie Lawler (22-10) will make his return after narrowly losing his 170 pound title fight to new champion Johnny Hendricks at UFC 171. He will look to take his frustration out on Jake Ellenburger (29-7) who is coming off a lost decision at the hands of Rory MacDonald at UFC on Fox 8. This fight will definitely set off seismographs in the 170 pound division and possibly set up a future welterweight title tilt.
Roland Delorme (9-2) will look to take Michinori Tanaka’s (9-0) undefeated record away from him. Tanaka is a veteran of Shooto and PXC where nobody could oust the Japanese bantamweight. Delorme will look to bounce back from his first loss of his UFC career to “Bruce Leeroy” Alex Caceres at UFC 165. Roland was 3-0-1 prior to that defeat.
Titan FC 29
When Tweets translate to fights it’s always good for the fans, which makes sense when Titan’s motto is #FansFightersFirst.
Matt Riddle (8-3) will jump right back into competition after his triumphant return to the sport and dismantling Michael Kuiper via guillotine choke of round 2 at TFC 27. A certain person was watching that night and was intrigued by the glory of the war that Matt “Deep Waters” Riddle brings to all his fights. That individual was Jose Landi-Jons (28-15) who has only had 4 victories come by way of decsion. The Brazilian finisher took to Twitter and didn’t bash or beef with Riddle, but simply asked for a fight, and as if the gladiator that Riddle is would say no. Titan Promoter Jeff Aronson saw this and signed the fight, making both fighters and fans alike, happy.
