We’re all still high after UFC 100.
It was a great show, with plenty of drama and even more dominance.
Lesnar looked unstoppable. George St-Pierre is unstoppable.
I don’t wanna spoil the party, but….the UFC belts seem pretty secure, right? I mean, I think we can all agree that GSP cannot be beaten at welterweight. Same goes for Anderson Silva at middleweight. Ditto for Machida at light-heavyweight.
Now, I personally think BJ Penn is the most unstoppable fighter within his weight class. I know, I know, most of you haven’t written off Kenny Florian just yet, but if Penn blows him away, he might as well just retire from the division.
As far as Lesnar goes, well, Dana White says he’s determined to lure Fedor into the UFC, but short of that – let’s face it – Lesnar can’t be stopped. Homeboy held Frank Mir in place with one hand and beat him with the other. To quote Adrian Balboa from Rocky IV: “You’ve seen him! You know how strong he is! You can’t win!”
We’ve got plenty of great fights coming up this summer, not just in the UFC, but all over the MMA map, so I’m not saying the sport is about to enter a static period, far from it. There are enough talented guys in mixed martial arts to fill another hundred cards.
What I am saying, however, is that the UFC champions are not likely to change any time soon.
Maybe that’s a good thing, but maybe not.
