UFC 129 Preview



So UFC 129 brings Toronto it's first UFC event ever. As you may imagine with rabid Canadian fans, this event was already sold out. 55,000 seats to be precise. This is going to be an epic event, especially since George St. Pierre (Canadian fighter) is the main event. I'm sure you can guess who will be cheered and boo'd :P.


Here's all the cards including the main event, pre-lims(live and free on SpikeTV!), and facebook pre-lims (live and free on Facebook!)
  • Welterweight Championship bout: Canada Georges St-Pierre (c) vs. United States Jake Shields
  • Featherweight Championship bout: Brazil José Aldo (c) vs. Canada Mark Hominick
  • Light Heavyweight bout: Belarus Vladimir Matyushenko vs. United States Jason Brilz
  • Light Heavyweight bout: United States Randy Couture vs. Brazil Lyoto Machida
  • Lightweight bout: Canada Mark Bocek vs. United States Ben Henderson

Preliminary Card (Spike TV)


  • Welterweight bout: United States Nate Diaz vs. Canada Rory MacDonald
  • Welterweight bout: Canada Sean Pierson vs. United States Jake Ellenberger

Preliminary Card (Facebook)


  • Welterweight bout: Canada Claude Patrick vs. United States Daniel Roberts
  • Bantamweight bout: Canada Ivan Menjivar vs. United States Charlie Valencia
  • Middleweight bout: Canada Jason MacDonald vs. United States Ryan Jensen
  • Lightweight bout: Canada John Makdessi vs. United States Kyle Watson
  • Featherweight bout: Canada Yves Jabouin vs. United States Pablo Garza
As you can see, there will be 7 free fights from Facebook+SpikeTV, so if you're an MMA fan, you'll have a busy Saturday!


So, who do you think will win in the two main bouts, Shields/GSP and Hominick/Aldo?

Ah, UFC! Almost forgot about it, not that much coverage here in Europe. Do you know any streams where one could watch the main fights, or are they taken down too quickly?

Myp2p will have a thread on Saturday that will be UFC129 orientated. Just browse through there and there will be multiple links.

The most reliable is thru a program called SopCast. Its free to download. The channel on sopcast is called MMATV
