If you’re an MMA fan, its gonna be a great weekend. Adrenaline MMA kicks off their inaugural event tommorow night in Chicago. I’m interested to see Clay Guida’s brother fight aginst Mike Russow, a couple potential good scraps that I’ll be paying attention to is Jeff Cox vs Bart Palaszewski, Forrest Petz vs Brian Gassaway and UFC vet Terry Martin will face Daiju Takase who triangle choked UFC Middleweight king Anderson Silva 5 years ago.
Also tommorow we will see KJ Noons defend his lightweight belt against Yves Edwards at EliteXC: Return of the King. Should be a great fight, one I’ve been waiting for. Also, the always entertaining Nick Diaz will battle ShoXC standout Muhsin Corrbrey. Murilo “Ninja” Rua, who’s never in a dull fight, will take on undefeated KOTC vet Tony Bonello.
Then on Sunday we have DREAM 4, which in my opinion is a seriously stacked fight card. The fight I’m most excited about is Melvin Manhoef vs Kazushi Sakuraba in the middleweight tournament. Shinya “The Rainbow Warrior” Aoki trys to move on in the lightweight tourney against Katsuhiko Nagata. How about Mayhem Miller vs Jacare Souza and Gegard Mousasi vs Dong Sik Yoon, all these fights will be fun to watch. In the non-tourney bouts we have the Japanese return of the “Demolition Man” Alistair Overeem fighting Tae Hyun Lee. Also, Ralek Gracie will take on russian Alavutdin Gadzhiyev who has a crazy knockout I’m gonna post later on.
All in all its gonna be an MMA fan’s dream(no pun intended) this weekend.
