UFC On Fox 15: Machida Vs. Rockhold This Saturday

April 16, 2015

The beauty of the growth and depth of the UFC is that we get a great free card like UFC on Fox 15 that takes place this Saturday, April 18 at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. #2 ranked middleweight and former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida will take on #2 ranked middleweight and former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold.

This is a well-matched fight, with two of the better fighters the UFC has to offer squaring off in what most expect to go the distance. Both fighters are the cream of their division, and the winner will get one step closer to a title shot.

The co-main event took a hit when Yoel Romero had to pull out after injuring his knee. In his place, Chris Camozzi gets a rematch against Ronaldo “Jacaré” Souza, the #1 ranked middleweight behind the champ Chris Weidman. Jacaré is a tough fighter in a tough position and look for Camozzi not to last long.

The best of the rest:

Cub Swanson takes on Max Holloway in a featherweight battle.  The #5 ranked featherweight versus the #9 ranked featherweight respectively in what is sure to be a tough one.

Felice Herrig fights Paige VanZant in a women’s strawweight bout that’s bound to impress. These ladies know how to bring it and they’re going to give each other all they have to get that victory.

In the prelims, Ovince Saint Preux battles Patrick Cummins and Jim Miller takes on Beneil Dariush, both top tier fights. The UFC and VFD Marketing both give brands the opportunity to capitalize on the growing popularity of MMA. UFC on Fox 15 will be a great fight card and a showcase for many top national companies.

You can catch the preliminary and main cards both on FOX. Enjoy the show!
