UFC 137 is just over two weeks away, so to get your blood pumping, check out the recently released extended trailer, which features not only a look into the upcoming welterweight title fight between Georges St. Pierre and Carlos Condit, but a welterweight clash between B.J. Penn and Nick Diaz and the heavyweight slug fest between Cheick Kongo and Matt Mitrione. Featuring 12 fights including Mirko Cro Cop vs. Roy Nelson, Donald Cerrone vs. Dennis Siver, and Scott Jorgensen vs. Jeff Curran, UFC 137 is looking like on hell of a card, barring any last minute injuries.
A few notes:
-GSP believes he will finish Carlos Condit, and says it with the conviction of a man who’s last 4 fights have gone to decision (In related news, Condit has already stated that if he doesn’t finish GSP he will likely lose the decision).
-Nick Diaz and B.J. Penn have some kick-ass highlight reels.
-As we’ve mentioned, Penn seems to have a new fire lit beneath him, even saying he’s yet to reach his potential. This is great to hear, especially considering the man considered retiring after his UFC 127 draw with Jon Fitch.
-Nick Diaz “I can beat B.J. Penn.” Hey, at least he showed up to the interview.
-Mitrione believes his chin combined with his pressure and punching power will lead him to victory over Cheick Kongo. Just so you know Matt, Cheick has a pretty decent chin of his own.
