UFC, the Ultimate Fighting Championship hosted its 97: Redemption mixed martial arts event in Canada. Brazilian MMA (mixed martial arts) fighter, Anderson Da Silva, in an astonishing match defeated Thales Leites. The results were 49-46, 48-47, 50-46. Some other champions that stood to the glory were Sam Stout, Mauricio Rua, Krzysztof Soszynski, Denis Kang, Nate Quarry, Cheick Kongo and six other fighters. Mauricio Rua, Nate Quarry and Cheick Kingo knocked down their opponents in first and second rounds (Mauricio and Nate in the first round and Kingo in the second round).
Anderson Silva has been the best fighter and world’s number one in the middle weight championship since 2006. The champion made his debut about 3 years ago, on June 28, when he participated in the Ultimate Fight Night -5.
Silva has also started his career in the films with the role of a pit fighter (Spider in the film) in “Never Surrender”. Directed by Hector Echavarria, the film is set to be released in 2009.
Mauricio “Shogun” Rua has also proved that his aggression has no limits. Again a Brazilian, Shogun is one of the most liked among the fans. He has been training Jiu Jitsu from the time when he was only six years old. He joined UFC 76 in 2007, in the month of September. His fighting skills and techniques are unique, in addition to his being a very aggressive opponent in the ring.
The fighting sensation is driving people nuts and bananas. Fans are glued to their screens and less committed are on rampage, going through websites and periodicals. In the days to come we might be able to see some more exciting simulation games being developed.
