UFC 130 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada will take place next Saturday, May 28, 2011.
Originally scheduled to headline this event was the third matchup between the UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, and the No. 1 contender, Gray Maynard.
Unfortunate injuries to both fighters have scrapped this main event battle.
To fill the void of this epic trilogy between Edgar and Maynard will be a light heavyweight clash between Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Matt "The Hammer" Hamill.
Additionally, the co-main event features the former UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir, slotted to face Roy "Big Country" Nelson.
In middleweight action, the technically precise, hard-hitting ex-Marine Brian Stann will square off against former Sengoku middleweight champion Jorge Santiago.
Additional fights include a wonderful welterweight bout between Thiago Alves and Rick Story, as well as an action-packed bantamweight battle between Miguel Torres and Demetrious Johnson.
Please follow along as I provide analysis and in-depth previews and predictions of all the night's fights.
I welcome your comments.
