It is almost Saturday night and that means UFC 131 is closing in on us. An exciting night of fights culminating in a final, No. 1 heavyweight contender bout between Junior dos Santos and Shane Carwin.
Originally this fight was suppose to take place between JDS and former UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar, but due to his second bout with diverticulitis, Lesnar pulled out.
That left room for the big hitter, Carwin, who is returning from injury and straight out of the gate earning a number one contender's bout.
Then you have a bout between Diego Nunes and the newest member to the featherweight division after a weight drop, Kenny Florian. Both fighters could be in the running for a title shot after Chad Mendes faces Jose Aldo, if Mendes wins at UFC 133 that is.
Also you have a fight between Demian Maia and Mark Munoz which could be interesting and possibly catapult Maia back into the UFC middleweight title picture.
