UFC 126 Fight Card Preview: Miguel Torres Vs Antonio Banuelos

Miguel Torres vs Antonio Banuelos

The depth of UFC 126's card can be attributed to a lot of different things, but it's clear now that the UFC/WEC merger has had the greatest impact. Although we're still in the infancy of a post-merger UFC, all signs seem to indicate a greater overall product for the fans. Miguel Torres and Antonio Banuelos are a perfect example of this.

With Torres we have a young fighter who was once touted as being one of the pound-for-pound best and in Banuelos a man who has never stopped giving it everything he's got to reach the top. Both men are making their UFC debuts and neither want to disappoint. ( Read UFC 126 Fight Card more... )

UFC 126 Fight Card Preview: Jon Jones Vs Ryan Bader

Jon Jones vs Ryan Bader

Aside from the main event, this is by far the most impactful fight of the night. This is a battle between two undefeated superstars in the making. Yes, Jones isn't technically undefeated after his disqualification loss to Matt Hamil in 2009, but he's unbeaten. No one has looked great against him and he will present a myriad of problems for Ryan Bader.

Jon Jones brings a style of striking that is going to be very difficult to try to replicate during training camp. Unpredictable doesn't begin to explain his quasi-muay thai standup. Whether it's spinning back elbows or flying knees, Jones is going to land on you if you don't put pressure on him. ( Read UFC 126 Fight Card more... )
