UFC 119: Five Reasons To Purchase The Pay-Per-View

0 of 5

    On Saturday, Sept. 25, UFC will be taking their act to the great state of Indiana with what is sure to be an exciting card for the ravenous Midwestern fight fans.

    While this is far from being the greatest fight card ever assembled it is, without question, one of the best cards top to bottom the UFC has put on this year.

    If you are still wavering on whether or not to buy this card let me drive home why this card would not be a waste of your hard-earned money.


5. Jeremy Stephens Vs. Melvin Guillard

1 of 5

    Expect to see fireworks in this one, folks, as these two young and explosive fighters mix it up to kick off the evening.

    Both of these fighters like to stand in the pocket and throw bombs and neither has ever been knocked out, so look for it to go the distance.

    This fight alone will be entertaining enough to justify the PPV costs.

4. Veterans Fighting To Remain Relevant

2 of 5

    Frank Mir, Mirko Cro Cop, Sean Sherk, Chris Lytle, and Matt Serra are all in the same boat; they are all struggling to remain relevant in an ever-evolving, young man's game.

    But keep your eyes open because when you back an old lion into a corner, they may just surprise you with how much fight they really have left.  

3. Chris Lytle

3 of 5

    We may as well just start calling him Mr. Excitement because win, lose, or draw, Chris Lytle steps into the cage to put on a show.

    Anytime Chris Lytle is on the card you know for certain that at the very least one bout will be one hell of a fight.

2. Mirko Cro Cop Vs. Frank Mir

4 of 5

    It is very doubtful that either Frank Mir or Mirko Cro Cop will be able to compete with the "New Breed" of heavyweight that currently dominates the top of the division, but anytime you get to see two of the best heavyweights of all-time square off, you tune in.

1. Young Guns Looking For A Title Shot

5 of 5

    Ryan Bader and Evan Dunham are two of the UFC's hottest prospects, and at UFC 119 they will be given their toughest tests to date in Sean Sherk and Lil' Nog.

    A win for either fighter will position them in the thick of the title hunt in two of the UFC's deepest and most competitive divisions.
