Carwin takes on Brock

UFC 116 is LIVE on PPV July 3!

Story by Andreas Hale

The stakes are higher than they have ever been for Shane Carwin. “Monster” has been rolling through the heavyweight division like Mike Tyson in the 1980’s. Nobody has been able to withstand the powerful onslaught of Carwin as he has amassed a 12-0 with 12 first round finishes. In Carwin’s last outing, the usually durable Frank Mir tasted the wrath of Carwin and had his lights promptly cut off at UFC 111 to give the Greg Jackson pupil the interim heavyweight title.

Solis risking title shot

Zanfer

Light flyweight contender Ulises “Archie” Solis (30-2-2, 21 KOs) says he’s set for Saturday’s nationally televised clash against Eric Ortiz (30-9-3, 21 KOs) on Saturday night in Reno, Nevada. Both fighters are former world champions, but Solis is putting a guaranteed shot at the IBF title on the line by accepting this fight. “I know I’m risking a lot,” said Solis. “I have much to lose and nothing to gain from Ortiz, but risk always exists in boxing and I didn’t want to be idle for so long so we accepted the bout Saturday in Reno.” For this fight, Solis prepared for six weeks in Guadalajara under the guidance of Lorenzo Lopez. “As always, we are in excellent physical condition to prevent surprises. We know how dangerous and experienced Ortiz is and will come out victorious,” promised the former champion, who in his last fight defeated Bert Batawang in a world title eliminator.

Brown: Never say die

UFC 116 is LIVE on PPV July 3!

While most people were rooting for Court McGee at the Ultimate Fighter Finale on June 19 because of his compelling back-story, there was at least one fighter who could fully empathize with McGee’s rise from the ashes reinvention. That was “The Immortal” Matt Brown from TUF 7, who, like McGee, battled substance problems and an eventual heroin overdose before making a name for himself in the realm of mixed martial arts. Brown’s cheating of death earned him the nickname “The Immortal,” and he was happy to see “The Crusher”—whom he actually met at the tryouts for TUF 7—realize his moment of triumph . . .

Abregú denies bashing Maidana

Exclusive: Maidana says comments are a lie

Three days ago, a press release from Gary Shaw Productions’ publicist was sent to the world including alleged quotes from unbeaten Argentine Carlos Abregú in which the latter shockingly blasted WBA Interim Super Lightweight champ and his fellow compatriot Marcos Maidana. In that press release numerous quotes bashing Maidana were attributed to Abregú, who is currently training in Brooklyn, N.Y., in preparation for his fight against Timothy Bradley, scheduled next July 17. However Maidana says Abregú called him and made it clear he never said a word about him.

Maidana says when he learned about these quotes he was at first quite surprised as Abregú is known in Argentina as a good and quiet guy. However, Maidana got terribly upset and decided to answer to Abregú, only to be surprised once again when he received a phone call from Abregú himself from the U.S. “Guess what, Abregú called me and made it clear that he had never said a single word about me, whatsoever,” Maidana said.

“Son of the Legend” Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. (41-0-1, 30 KOs) remained unbeaten and proved he’s for real with a twelve round unanimous decision over “Ireland’s” John Duddy (29-2, 18 KOs) as he claimed the vacant WBC silver middleweight belt on Saturday night in front of more than 10,000 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

After the fight, promoter Bob Arum mentioned Miguel Cotto as a possible future fight for Chavez.

“I rocked him in the third round, a really big punch and he was hurt. But he fought and battled back, a sign of a good fighter,” said Duddy. When Bob Arum walked over John added, “…Bob, I only wish I could have given you a better fight.”

Fighting under the Top Rank banner for the first time, Mexican ring legend Marco Antonio Barrera (66-7, 43 KOs) dominated Adailton Dejesus (26-5, 21 KOs) over te rounds in a super lightweight clash. Scores were 100-90, 98-92, 99-91. For more details and photos click here…
