Vitali Klitschko Movie Ranking: four / 5
Pay per view of UFC’s memorial day match witnessed a major blow as the present heavyweight champion Chris Weidman has lost the important draw with Lyoto Machinda on Monday.
Believe it or not, with this major defeat the headliner heavyweight champion Weidman has gone out of the tournament right in the first round. On the other hand this win has given huge confidence to light and heavyweight fighter Lyoto Machinda. On behalf of the UFC, it has been announced on Monday late night that Weidman is already suffering from a critical knee injury. So, the match which was previously headlined as UFC 173, will now be moved to UFC 175. However, the UFC authorities said that the new date for the match will be decided later on.
The regular observers and fans of the this sport are aware of the fact that Chris Weidman was initially supposed to have a tough fight with another controversial fighter Vitor Belfort. But shockingly, in some recent development, it has been reported that the athletic commission of the Nevada state in its investigation has found testosterone therapy in Vitor Belfort and therefore he was removed from the tournament. This gave Belfort sufficient amount of time to deal with his body and get back to reviving his career.
On the other hand, Lyoto Machinda has been put against Chris Weidman. Experts say that this match only the third fight in the middle-heavyweight category of Machinda’s career.
Machinda’s fans know very well that he debuted with the middleweight category when he defeated then renowned champion Mark Munoz in October 2013. After that, his winning stint continues against Brazilian fighter Mousasi.
But now Lyoto will have to wait another six weeks to try his fate to this coveted title.

Vitali Klitschko Video clip Rating: 4 / five
Those fighters and fight fans that were used to the Heavyweight division of boxing being dominated by American fighters and were dreaming of a division that will no longer have to contend with two brothers from Ukraine – Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko have been given a reality check.
Wladimir Klitschko, at 38 years old, still remains at the top of his game and in a recent interview; he has said that he wants to dominate the division for another decade.
Dr. Steel Hammer said that he just turned 38 years old but that is just a number adding that he is still hungry for fights and wins and he feels his body is in good shape and he feels better than ever. According to the Ukrainian, a few years back, he thought that he could improve anymore and his career would stagnate but his career is far from over and he wants to box for another ten years at least.
If Wladimir Klitschko manages to survive the cut throat division for another four years, something he is expected to do, and still stay unbeaten, he will beat the long standing record of the legendary Joe Louis who dominated the division for a staggering twelve straight years.
The Brown Bomber fought between 1937 and 1949 without any blemish to his record and Wladimir himself has also not lost a fight for the last ten years.
The younger Klitschko is aiming to create history and it will take perhaps the biggest upset of the century, the greatest fighter ever born or a self implosion on his own part to stop him from reaching the absolute zenith but for anyone who knows Wladimir, he is as serious as can be about the way he approaches things and in his latest title defense, Alex Leapai will be given a raw lesson of that.
