UFC 179 Study Guide

Featherweight champion Jose Aldo is one of the more dominant title holders in UFC history. Aldo has won 17 straight fights dating back to 2006, with notable wins over Cub Swanson, Urijah Faber, Manny Gamburyan, Kenny Florian, Chad Mendes, and Frankie Edgar. With 15 career wins by knockout and one by submission, Aldo is considered one of MMA’s best pound-for-pound fighters. He’ll look to keep his streak and tact – and his belt – when he faces Team Alpha Male rival Chad Mendes at UFC 179 . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

Neil Magny on the Drive for Five at UFC 179

Winning streaks are difficult to come by at the top level of MMA, and Neil Magny has earned every step of his.

The Ultimate Fighter season 16 alum has had an incredible campaign in 2014 as he’s found victory in all four of his showings in the calendar year. While four wins in a year would be enough for most fighters to stop and appreciate, the 26-year-old Colorado transplant isn’t done yet. He’s going into territory few of his peers have traveled and will get his fifth fight within a 12-month period. Furthermore, he will tie a benchmark if he’s successful in getting his fifth consecutive win in 2014, and it will make an impressive statement in the process . . . Click here for more at UFC.com

Overeem grateful for quick return against Struve

No sooner had Alistair Overeem lost to Ben Rothwell in early September did the speculation about his future begin.

For the third time in four outings, the Dutch heavyweight was on the wrong side of a knockout finish, leaving him with a 2-3 mark through his first five appearances in the Octagon. Though he hasn’t had the impact many anticipated following his high-profile move to the UFC and first-round destruction of Brock Lesnar at UFC 141, the organization quickly silenced any chatter about his future by making it clear they would not be releasing the former Strikeforce champion . . . . Click here for more at UFC.com
