UFC Fight Night Live 9-16-09 Features…

Ultimate Fight Night Live is shaping up to be an exciting event. Here are a couple of featured fights for September 16th.

Nate Diaz will be taking on the heavy handed, Mevin Guillard.

Nate will need to take Guillard to the ground if he expects to win this battle. Nate has lost in his last few bouts and needs to get himself back into the game with a dominating win by submission. If Nate hangs out on his feet he is bound to be KO’d by Guillard.

Melvin Guillard has knockout power in his hands and his feet. The problem is will he be ready to fight. Some would like to see Melvin put the always cocky Nate Diaz on his ass. Melvin is also looking for a come back after falling off the UFC scale due to his involvement with drugs.

It all comes down to the grappler VS. the striker. Both men have the ability to win this fight. The question is who will save their career and who will be packing it in and going home?

Another great fight taking place September 16th is Gray Maynard VS. Roger Huerta.

How could this not be a great fight. This is Huerta’s last fight on his UFC contract. One would think he would give it everything he’s got for his last showing. The man wants to be resigned, no?  Let’s not forget that he is an outstanding fighter as well.

As for Gray Maynard, he has been looking for his title shot and would like to keep his 8-0 record untouched. If Maynard wins this fight a title shot should be in order. If that’s not a reason to beat the piss out of someone, I don’t know what is. 

In my opinion this is going to be one hell of a fight and I cannot wait to see the outcome.

The undercard will feature Steve Cantwell VS. Brian Stann along with a number of other great fights.

Cantwell and Former Member of the U.S. Military Brian Stann will certainly be a stand up battle. These two love to bang, this will be an exciting fight for sure.

The other fights on the nights card are:

Carlos Condit VS. Jake Ellenberger

Nate Quarry VS. Tim Credeur

Chris Wilson VS. Mike Pyle

Sam Stout VS. Phillipe Nover

Jeremy Stephens VS. Justin Buchholz

Brock Larson VS. Mike Pierce

Ryan Jensen VS. Steve Steinbeiss
