UFC 163 is going down in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil this Saturday August 3rd at the HSBC arena. Home native Jose Aldo defends his feather weight strap in the main event. MMA seems to be making it be down in Brazil and the UFC is churning out the events to satisfy demand. This card is loaded with talent so lets break down the main card.

Jose Aldo vs Chan Sung Jung

The 145 pound kingpin Jose Aldo looks to defend his belt for the 7th time and take out one of the UFCs top featherweights the Korean Zombie Chan Sung Jung. Jose Aldo has only one loss in 23 fights and that lone loss was 8 years ago. Can he take the torch of the top Brazilian fighter on the planet after Anderson Silva was knocked out at UFC 162? Quite possibly. Aldo has been extremely dominant in his WEC/UFC career, only showing that he is human in the last round against Mark Hominick as well as in the Frankie Edgar fight. Can the Korean Zombie exploit something in the champions game? Probably not, Aldo has the much better overall stand up game, with some of the most viscous low kicks around and his take down defines is top notch. THe longer the fight goes the more damage the Zombie is going to take. I see a finish from the champ. Aldo by TKO: Round 3

Lyoto Machida vs Phil Davis

A pivotal match up at light heavy weight, could see the winner getting a title shot at 205. Lyoto Machida puts his karate to the test against stand out wrestler Phil Davis. Can Davis figure out a way to time Machidas movements and get the fight to the ground, where Phil is likely to dominant? He has the wrestling and the athleticism to do it, but there is no other fighter who flights like Machidas in the UFC, and must be almost impossible to replicate in training. I can see Davis getting Machida down at some point but I don't see him finishing the former champion. I see Machida picking away at Davis with punches and kicks, and getting another crack at Jon Jones, or a first crack at Alexander Gustafsson. Machida by Unanimous Decision.

Cezar Ferreria vs Tom Watson

One of the original Ultimate Fighter Brazil winners Cezar Ferreria will get his second chance to fight for the UFC, as he has been plagued by injuries since winning the reality show. Standing in Ferreras way is fellow Brazilian and octagon newcomer Thiago Santos. Santos comes in as a replacement for the injured Clint Hester. Not much is known about Santos, expect that he has a solid record and is Brazilian. He is fighting above his weight class, so look for the much bigger Ferreria to muscle his opponent to the cage and take him down. Cezar show cased a solid submission game on the reality show, and would love to show off his skills again, in his native Brazil. Ferreria by Submission 2nd Round.

Thales Leites vs Tom Watson

Former middle weight title challenger Thales Leites makes his retun to the UFC after compiling a 6-1 record outside of the promotion. The talented grappler has to deal with the hard hitting Tom Watson from the UK. On paper this seems like a typical striker vs wrestler match up. Thales will no doubt want to get the fight to the ground, and employ his jiu jitsu on Watson but Thales isn't the strongest wrestler and will have to win at least one striking exchange to get in deep on Watson. Can Watson keep the Brazilian off of him and score with punching combinations and kicks? I see him being somewhat successful at this, but Thales will most likely find a way to drag Tom to the ground each round and win the fight. Leites by Unanimous Decision.

The UFC returns to FOX this saturday the Keyarena in Seattle, Washington with a flyweight title bout as the headliner. Also on the card is a pivotal welterweight matchup, that has to have title shot ramifications for the winner.

Demetrious Johnson vs John Moraga

Demetrious Johnson looks defend his title for the 2nd time and remain undefeated at 125 pounds. Standing across the cage from him will be 13-1 John Moraga. There is no doubt this is going to be a fast paced affair with lots exchanges on the feet and scrambles on the ground. Both fighters have a wrestling background, but Moraga comes in with the higher collegiate credentials. Who ever can control the fight will likely win this one. Demetrious Johnson is one of, if not the best at mixing up his striking with his wrestling, and making his opponents looking slower than himself. I see Johnson taking this one by unanimous decision.

Rory McDonald vs Jake Ellenberger

The most anticipated fight on the card has to go between Rory McDonald and Jake Ellenberger. Two of the welterweight divisions top contenders square off, with the winner knocking on Dana Whites door for a title shot. McDonald seems to be a little sharper in his striking while Ellenberger has the edge in knock out power. The stand up portion of this fight will be very interesting to watch. The deciding factor in this bout may come down to who wins the in the wrestling department and is able to get there opponent to the mat. Ellenberger comes from a wrestling background, but McDonald is a new breed of fighter. Very tough fight to call. Im going with McDonald by decision

Robbie Lawler vs Bobby Voelker

Bobby Voelker is a replacement for former Strikefrorce champion Tarec Saffiedine, and faces the hard hitting Robbie Lawler. Lawler made an impressive UFC return when he blasted Josh Koscheck inside of one round at UFC 157, while Voelker lost a back and forth bout against Patrick Cote at UFC 158. On paper this should be a Lawler victory but Voelker isn't a guy to couldn't out. He is as resilient as they come, and will be hard to put away. Im going to go with Lawler, by decision.

Liz Carmouche vs Jessica Andrade

The ladies start off the main card, with former title challenger Liz Carmouche taking on octagon newcomer Jessica Andrade. The Brazilian, Andrade brings in an impressive record of 9-2 and looks to make a name for herself known, by taking out one the UFCs most well known ladies. But Carmouche is also looking for her first UFC win and will be looking to make a statement as well. This one could steal the show, I see Carmouche getting the win by stoppage in the 2nd round.

heavy punching bag Kimurawear has been expanding and growing tremendously in the past few years. We have constantly been expanding our product line, in order to satisfy our loyal customers needs. After a lot of customer feedback regarding heavy and thai bags, we deciding to go ahead and create something that sternly represents our brand. Quality is the driving force behind Kimurawear, and we didn't stop short on these bags. Our bags are made of a special synth-leather material. This material is extremely durable and has a tremendous amount of flex, making it perfect for bag use.


Our heavy bags weigh in at 100 pounds filled and measure in at 14" by 52". These bags are ideal for gyms as well as home use. They are designed primarily for punching techniques, and quite easy to assemble. Most gyms primarily have heavy bags, with a few thai bags as well.


Our thai bag is longer than the heavy bag. This is done so in the traditional thai style. One of the thai boxers greatest weapons is there low kicks, which cannot be done on a boxing heavy bag. The thai bag weights in at 120 pounds and measures in at 14" by 72".
Both types of bags come filled or unfilled, but we recommend pick up for the full thai bag as shipping would be quite costly. If pick up is not possible then we could potentially work out a solution.

Its fight weekend in Las Vegas, and UFC 162 the main event is definitely worth watching. The pound for pound best fighter in the planet Anderson Silva is defending his middleweight title against a very dangerous opponent in Chris Weidman. Also on the card is Franke Edgar who is making his second appearance at feather weight as well as jiu jitsu mater Roger Gracie, who has a heavyweight on his shoulders with his last name.

Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman

Can Anderson do it again? For sure he could, and has a very good chance of defending his middle weight title yet again. Or is Chris Weidman the man to beat the King? One could make a strong case for Weidman to be the man for the job. There is no mistaking in the person to beat Anderson, will have to out wrestle him and control him for 5 rounds. The formula has been seen in action and almost to perfection from Chael Sonnen. The question begs to be asked is Weidman better than Sonnen? Although Sonnen has accomplished more in mma in terms of bouts and facing top level opponents, Weidman is definitely the better MMA fighter. Weidman has brown belt in brazilian jiu jitsu, and has developed some solid striking skills as well. I cant see Weidman out striking Silva, but he will defiantly put Anderson on his back more than once, and once he has him down, he is not getting up. But this is a 5 round fight, so the champ will have his opportunities to do what he does. Im going to go with Silva by tko, round 3.

Frankie Edgar vs Charles Oliveira

The former lightweight champion makes his second appearance at his natural weight class, when he faces brazilian import Charles Oliveria. Frankie faces a long and rangy in Oliveria but one would expect Edgar to be able to move in and out and score with his boxing. And if he ever does get into any kind of trouble, then taking downy the tall brazilian fighter shouldn't be a probably. I see a Unanimous decision for Edgar.

Roger Gracie vs Tim Kennedy

A Gracie returns to the octagon, and its not Royce. Roger Gracie is one of the greatest partitioners of jiu jitsu, of the present and his been able to showcase these skills in most of his mixed martial arts bouts. With the exception of Muhammed Lawal, this is Gracies toughest test to date against Tim Kennedy. Kennedy is a very explosive athlete how packs a lot power, but seems to be more comfortable on the ground. Kennedy shouldn't have any issues taking Gracie to the mats, but is that his best idea. I think he will keep it on the feet and box, with the long limbed Gracie. I see a tko for Kennedy in the opening round.

Other matches on the card include a middle clash of titans with Mark Munoz vs Tim Boetsch as well as feather weights Dennis Siver and Cub Swanson. Both bouts will be fun to watch, but i have a feeling the two featherweights are going to steal the show.
