The Ultimate arrives in the Arizona desert on Saturday (14) for UFC Fight Night Glendale. The show, which features 14 bouts on its show, features a main fight that promises to shake up the lightweight division. Dustin Poirier, fifth in the lightweight standings, faces Justin Gaethje, sixth in the standings. The winner is close to the chance for the belt.
Brazil will be represented on the card by five athletes: by Alex Cowboy, who faces former half-time middleweight champion Carlos Condit on the main card. Already in the preliminary program, Antonio Cara de Sapato measures forces against Tim Boetsch; Wilson Reis faces John Moraga; Gilbert Durinho will face Dan Moret and Dhiego Lima against veteran Yushin Okami.
With 14 fights scheduled for this Saturday, UFC Glendale is the edition of the event with the largest number of fights (14) since the distant UFC 2, held in 1993, which had 15 bouts and was won by Royce Gracie, who presented himself three times on the same night. Capitanando the event, the lightweights Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje will make an authentic duel of kamikazes in the main fight. Known by the aggressive style, the two fighters promise to make a real war.
The Combat displays the "UFC: Poirier x Gaethje" live in its entirety and exclusively from 16:25 (GMT), and Combate.com accompanies the event in real time, with live video of the first two fights of the card preliminary.
With a win and a loss in both fights he did in UFC, Justin Gaethje is guaranteed to fight well. His two presentations in the event have kept the tradition of his career: total surrender and ceaseless quest for knockout, yet leaving clear loopholes for his opponents to beat him. Former WSOF lightweight champion, the fighter believes the fight will be as explosive as a barrel of gunpowder for both fighters.
"We have similar styles, and we want the same thing: to pluck each other's head in the octagon. I think the fight will be a meeting of gunpowder barrels, and anyone who explodes with more force will win.
For Poirier, who comes from six wins in his last eight bouts and ranks fifth in the rankings, he believes Gaethje has a dangerous style for both his opponents and himself.
Gaethje is a zombie. he does not stop walking forward, and does not care about the blows that hit his face. This is a problem for your opponents in the fights, because he is always dangerous, and always seeks to warn you. But it is dangerous to himself, for the rest of his life. If he continues to fight like this, he will put his health at risk.
Alex Cowboy leads the legion of five Brazilians in Glendale
Caped by middleweight Alex Cowboy, the only one to appear on the main card against former interim champion Carlos Condit, the legion of Brazilians at UFC Glendale is comprised of five fighters: Dhiego Lima, who faces the Japanese Yushin Okami in the middle; Gilbert Durinho, who had a hard time knocking out the lightweight limit against rookie Dan Moret; wilson Reis, who faces former flyweight belt challenger John Moraga; and middleweight Antonio Cara de Sapato, who faces veteran midfielder Tim Boetsch.
Having accepted the fight just two weeks in advance, Alex Cowboy replaced Matt Brown in the tournament's main co-event against Carlos Condit. Confident in another victory between the weights, the Brazilian has promised that the dispute will not pass the second round.
"I'm well-trained, with no injuries, and willing to do anything to fight the night. My nose is here ready to be broken again, if need be. I want the victory, because I've always admired Carlos Condit, and I think this is the time. I'll knock out in the second round," said the swimmer.
