UFC 161 BettingOn June 15, in the Canadian city of Winnipeg, will be the UFC 161 main event with the most anticipated long ago, Rashad Evans vs Dan Henderson. But as a fight not only does man live, other bouts have to accompany the already mentioned and there are two that catch our attention, Roy Nelson against Stipe Miocic and Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan.

Four heavyweights who are at different points in his career and promise to turn the Octagon MTS Centre in this city.

Let's start with "Big Country" Nelson (20-7), coming off three straight wins, all by knockout, and all in the first assault. His victims were Dave Herman, Matt Mitrione and Cheick Congo. It is true that before these triumphs lost to Frank Mir, Fabricio Werdum and Junior dos Santos. But nobody has knocked out and his powerful hands are always your best weapon.


Nelson when you win is by knockout and when he loses it by decision. He has remained in the top ten UFC heavy, so a win (especially by knockout) before Miocic would put him in the conversation of the aspirants to the crown of Mexican Cain Velasquez.

Miocic (9-1), meanwhile, a few months ago was one of the most celebrated prospects in all Mixed Martial Arts (MMA for its acronym in English), but his knockout loss to Stefan Struve stopped last September that momentum. This fighter had left lying on the road as you put opponent until Struve and his hands were beat benchmark in any conversation about young fighters to follow.

Now, after the failure, comes the time to stand up and regain lost ground. But go have given task. Nelson is a very tough opponent with brutal force in cuffs and excellent in the canvas with his jiu-jitsu. But that's in the UFC, if you want to shine you have to fight the best.

I doubt that this fight will grow down and I think if someone falls off due to a blow up of the opponent. I do not know is who is that will take advantage ...

The other heavy confrontation brings us to a Barry (8-5) looking to stay relevant in the division. Since coming to the UFC has won and lost five fights. No doubt his great punch and strong legs, neither of which is weak in combat on canvas and sometimes gives the impression that it is too small to fight the giants stalking the heavy.

This time, his opponent, Jordan (10-4), not overwhelming in stature and weight and is a fighter who uses his boxing more than any other discipline, so everything looks a very even fight and to be developed above. The two hit very hard and prefer this match to have to go downstairs to use a good jiu-jitsu or wrestling. Both need to be active out winners on a UFC that is increasingly competitive, requiring win and do so convincingly. Nothing boring actions or strategies that serve only to defeat. This need results, coupled with a powerful fists suggests fireworks in the cage on June 15.

In these two fights between these four heavy there dynamite in their fists and blows eager to connect up. That's why I hope that neither reaches the distance.
