UFC 124 Lineup, Almost Complete
UFC 124 is nearly there, and the lineup in almost complete. Four additional bouts were added on the list. Check out if your favorite fighter is included, and don't forget to share your bet.
UFC has added four new bouts to the UFC 124 event, as the lineup nears completion. Now included in the card is a lightweight clash between Joe Stevenson and Mac Danzig, and a welterweight showdown of Thiago Alves versus John Howard. Also added in the line up are two preliminary bouts between Ricardo Almeida versus T.J. Grant and Pat Audinwood versus John Makdessi.
Joe Stevenson is coming off a unanimous decision loss to George Sotiropoulos last February. Noted for his effective use of the guillotine choke, Stevenson has secured nearly half of his 31 career victories via submission. And just like him, Mac Danzig is also coming from a controversial loss by Matt Wiman. Danzig has secured half of his 19 career wins by submission also.
Thiago Alves will enter the Octagon after acquiring a back-to-back loss. After putting together seven consecutive wins from 2006 to 2008, Alves failed to snatch the title from George St-Pierre at UFC 100. Following a corrective surgery for his Arteriovenus Malformation on March 31, Danzig faced Jon Fitch in a rematch at UFC 117 but failed via unanimous decision. On the contrary, John Howard went 4-0 inside the Octagon since his first appearance in 2009. The 27-year old fighter also earned a Knockout of the Night award at UFC Live last March.
Taking the preliminary bouts: Ricardo Almeida is a former middleweight King of Pancrase. He got his setback in March after succumbing to Matt Hughes’ front-headlock choke at UFC 117. T.J. Grant, though he has a up-and-down career with the UFC, earned a Knockout of the Night award for his first-round TKO win over Kevin Burns at UFC 107. John Makdessi is set to have his debut in the promotion on December, and happy to welcome him is Pat Audinwood. Audinwood garnered a four-fight winning streak before suffering from a defeat against Thiago Tavares at UFC 119.
