UFC 145 coming to the ATL

Posted on

In honor of UFC 145 coming to Atlanta April 21st, the highly anticipated grudge match between the youngest world light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones and “Suga” Rashad Evans inspired me to create this poster.

My husband inadvertently introduced me to the brutal world of UFC a few years ago through his incessant playing of UFC 2009 Undisputed.  Initially, I was totally grossed out by the blood (and other bodily fluid) stained “Octagon” and gladiator type bloodsport.  However, over time, I began to realize that, unlike traditional boxing, mixed martial arts was a lot more interesting and exciting to watch.  The diversity of fighting skills (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, wrestling, karate, boxing, etc.) most UFC fighters display, IMO, shows a commitment to a broader range of styles, which makes them more well rounded and extremely conditioned to take on any opponent.

    This will be a brawl. Love matches with fighters that have a read grudge against each other. Think Jones will prevail though.

      Indeed, can’t wait! Jones will win given that his fighting style is way more diverse than Evans.

    Yeah, I would be surprised if this fight lasted a full 2-3 rounds. Suga will have trouble getting on the inside of Jon’s defenses, and will be vulnerable to Jon’s superior clinching, ground game, diverse strikes.

      You know it! “Endicott” has proven he’s extremely adept at varying his fighting style and coming up with techniques that dominate even the best fighters. Evans is hungry, however, and if he’s up to the task, the bout could take an unexpected turn. We shall see…
