Pro Fighting Fans to feature live UFC round by round results & coverage
Just one week after offering a free fight card on Spike TV at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale, the Ultimate Fighting Championship will move to the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee for UFC 107 on Saturday, December 12. Viewers unable to order the Pay Per View broadcast, be sure to visit Pro Fighting Fans for live updates and round-by-round UFC 107 results and coverage of the entire televised card starting at approximately 10 pm EST.
Featuring a main event pitting reigning UFC Lightweight Champion and MMA pound for pound great BJ “The Prodigy” Penn against the most dangerous addition to the 155lb division in years, Diego “Nightmare” Sanchez, UFC 107 will be the first event since October with a UFC belt on the line. Since suffering a second loss to reigning Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre in January of this year in what was the most humbling performance of his entire career, Penn rebounded in dominant fashion with a submission victory over Kenny Florian in August in what was his second successful title defense. Should he get past Diego Sanchez, it will be difficult to imagine a lightweight powerful enough to get the job done against the best in the world at 155lbs.
Since dropping down from 170lbs following losses to top-ranked welterweights Josh Koscheck and Jon Fitch, Diego Sanchez, a winner from the first season of The Ultimate Fighter, has since dispatched highly regarded lightweights Joe “Daddy” Stevenson and Clay Guida on the way to his first title shot in the UFC. While Sanchez has been known for hyping himself up far beyond his abilities, he may present the unique blend of aggression, speed, and mental fortitude necessary to truly push Penn past his limits come December 12.
Also on the card, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir returns against powerful striker Cheick Kongo in the co-main event of the evening. Following directly on the heels of the most brutal loss of his career, a second-round TKO at the hands of reigning UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, Mir could establish himself once more as a viable contender and headliner with a convincing win over one of the most dangerous strikers in the division. A win for Kongo would shoot him right back into the mix of contenders vying for a shot at heavyweight gold in 2010.
In other action, former top welterweight contender Jon Fitch will take on the unheralded Mike Pierce in the hopes of keeping his goal of fighting for the welterweight title a second time alive, while Kenny Florian attempts to rebound from one of the worst losses of his career when he takes on the aggressive, suffocating wrestling game of Clay Guida. Rounding out the main card will be a heavyweight battle pitting the hard-hitting Paul Buentello against the lengthy submission game of Stefan Struve after rising prospect Todd Duffee was forced off of the card due to injury.
