The Week in Fight Announcements- May 26-June 1

Another week has past, and as always, we are never short of MMA news. Several key match-ups in the UFC have been announced, including a some possible #1 contender matches.

The biggest story we encountered this week was the knee injury of Cat Zingano that has forced her out of coaching opposite “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey on the upcoming TUF 18. Miesha Tate, who was originally slated to face Liz Carmouche on the upcoming UFC on Fox 8, has replaced “Alpha Cat” as coach and will be facing champion Ronda for the Women’s UFC Bantamweight title later this year. Liz Carmouche will keep her spot on the card and is now facing newly signed Jessica Andrade at UFC on Fox 8 on July 27 to be the first WMMA fighters to fight on Fox.  Two top ten UFC Welterweights Martin Kampmann and Carlos Condit are scheduled to meet at this Augusts’ second installment of UFC on Fox Sports 1 in what will be an important fight for both men. Featherweight contenders Chan Sung Jung and Ricardo Lamas will square off on July 6 at UFC 162 in a possible title eliminator with the victor likely facing the winner of the Aldo versus Pettis featherweight title fight on August 3.

The UFC has signed former UFC heavyweight champion Josh Barnett to a multi-fight deal and quickly slated “The Warmaster” to face two time UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir at UFC 164. Both men are ground specialists with world class submission skills.

Former BAMMA champion Tom Watson will be welcoming the return of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace and former UFC middleweight title challenger Thales Leites back to the octagon at UFC 163 on August 3rd.

Fast rising lightweight Connor McGregor has been scheduled to meet former TUF competitor Andy Ogle at the UFC on Fox Sports 1 debut in August.

TUF 17 finalist Uriah Hall will face fellow TUF alumni Nick Ring at the UFC on Fox Sports 1 debut.
Fellow TUF season 10 contestants Matt Mitrione vs Brendan Schaub on UFC on Fox 8 in July.
Other match-ups that were announced this week are newly signed UFC lightweight James Krause replacing injured Issac Vallie-Flagg to face feared striker Sam Stout at UFC at 161. Former WEC featherweight champ Mike Brown will face Akira Corassani at the UFC on Fox 1 debut. Rafaello Oliveira replaces injured John Makdessi to face Edson Barboza at UFC 162. In a heavyweight showdown of newly signed UFC fighters, Soa Palelei will stand across the octagon to fight Nikita Krylov at UFC 164.
These are some very compelling fights that have been added to the sizzling summer schedule for the UFC. I, for one, am excited for these bouts and they should give us some exciting fights.
Enjoy the fights, and stay cool.
