Former UCL Champ, Chad Hernandez of Radical MMA is set to take on  Anthony Glacchina of Serra/Longo in what looks to be a great fight.
Coach Rene Dreyfus of Radical MMA is well aware of  the  famous Serra/Longo camp. Nobody can deny that former UFC WW Champ Matt Serra’s KO of former UFC WW Champ George St Pierre and UFC MW Champ Chris Weidman’s KO and TKO of the former UFC MW Champ Anderson Silva, AKA The GOAT  were possibly the biggest upsets in UFC history. According to Coach Rene, Chad is more then ready.

GIRLFIGHTS Totally ROCK!

 

Madison Square Garden is considered the greatest arena in the world. Dating back to the early 1900’s to today, Champions like John L. Sullivan, Jack Jonson, Benny Leonard, Barney Ross, Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Rocky Graziano, Sugar Ray Robinson,  Ali, Vito Antuefermo, Duran, Frazier, Sugar Ray Leonard, Holyfield  and so many more have  all fought here.

I know Former UFC Champs and Hall Of Famers Dan Severn and Royce Gracie would have been honored to fight here as well as Olympic Silver Medalist and UFC legend Matt Lindland.

In our last interview with New Yorker and former UFC Champ Matt “The Terror” Serra, he hinted at a possible  comeback if it were at MSG.  The Great Renzo would love  the chance to compete here too.  Former UFC Champ Frankie Edgar has mentioned it.  Even UFC Champs, Chris Weidman and Jonny “Bones” Jones hope for the  chance to compete in the greatest arena in the world!  Refs Big John McCarthy and New Jersey’s Dan Miragliotta also have that itch and Dana White would would like nothing better then having a UFC @ MSG.

MMA fan, Actor Alex Corrado of TV’s Gotham, here with Penguin says “Big Congrats to Victory for bringin MMA to MSG!

MMA Confidential Anderson Silva MMA vs BOXING Roy Jones Machida Weidman

by Bruce KiVo

So many want a piece of Anderson Silva, but who does “The Spider” Silva want?

Anderson vows to KO undefeated Division 1  All American Wrestler and new 185-pound UFC Champ  Chris Weidman in their rematch at UFC 168.   Expect the unexpected from both fighters.The rematch is anybody’s fight.  Weidman’s ko of Silva was no fluke.  This boy can do it all.We’ll see who carries out their gameplan better.

If Anderson loses the rematch, Lyoto Machida can vy for a shot at the middleweight crown as teamates Lyoto and Anderson have vowed never to compete against one another.

Considered by many to be the best MMA fighter of all time, Anderson Silva has a hard time with wrestlers as demoed in his near loss to Chael Sonnen in their first fight.

If he beats Weidman, Anderson wants Roy Jones and so does the UFC.  It would be epic… MMA vs BOXING.      One can wonder why Silva would want to compete in boxing.  Of course the payday would be off the hook,but   Roy Jones believes testing oneself against one of the best boxers of all time is the real incentive for The Spider.  With a big size and reach advantage and similiar style to Roy, it seems unlikely that  the 38yr old Silva could avoid being decimated by Roy Jones.  Chael was able to knock him down and Chris Weidman ko’d him. Roy Jones Jr.  At 44 and past his prime has accepted the challenge as long as it comes pretty soon.

The reality of this match really happening seems a bit unlikely as the UFC’s 185lb division is stacked and the clock is ticking for Roy Jones Jr.  It’s up to Dana White and the UFC.

I say “let the games begin”.  Win or lose vs Weidman, we want to see this fight!

Until next time!
