UFC RAISING CAIN
UFC 2012 went out with a bang as Cain Velasquez reclaimed his Heavyweight Championship
title. In a rematch against Junior Dos Santos at UFC 155 in Las Vegas on December 29, Velasquez dominated
the fight, winning every round, ending in a unanimous decision.
Over a year ago, in November of 2011, a face off between the two went quite differently. Bad Boy
Santos wasted no time plowing into Velasquez, snatching the title with a KO in just 1 minute and 4 seconds.
Velasquez had waited thirteen months to resettle the score and that is exactly what he did. Aggressive
and attentive, Cain saw to it that he took the fight to the ground whenever he could, using his
superior wrestling skills to overpower Dos Santos. With the judges scoring in at 50-45, 50-43, 50-44,
it was unanimous...Cain had been raised. Read more about two time and current UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez...
A record $3.2 million in ticket sales was brought in by 12,423 fans at the last UFC event of
the year. The fans were not disappointed.
In a bloody fight to the finish, Jim Miller defeated Joe Lauzon in the Lightweight Division. Miller
started the fight out with swings that left Lauzon's face a bloody mess throughout the entire bout.
Although Lauzon made heroic attempts to win and hung in until the last minute, he lost 29-28 in
what will no doubt be hailed one of the best fights of the year.
Results of other not so entertaining matches were: Derek Brunson defeated Chris Leben, Yushin Okami outwrestled Alan Belcher and
Constantinos Philippou took Tim Boetsch.
Where does it go from here? What does 2013 hold for the UFC?
Will Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones become a reality? In a recent interview, Silva was quoted as saying, "The question [about facing Jones] would have to be made to Dana White," Silva said. "Let's ask if he'll give me 50% of the UFC.
If he will, maybe this fight will happen."
What about female fighting? Ronda Rousey will become the first female
to headline a UFC fight card when she takes on Liz Carmouche at for the Bantamweight Championship at
UFC 157 set for February 23.
No doubt the outcome of this fight will determine much for the future of female fighting
in the UFC.
In the Heavyweight Division Brendan Schaub will face off with Lavar Johnson.
Also, just announced, at 157 will be a featherweight bout between Matt Grice (2-4) and Dennis Bermudez who is 2-1.
UFC 156 may prove to hold some interesting fights as well with Aldo vs. Edgar, Evans vs.
Nogueira, Overeem vs. Silva, Fitch vs. Maia and Tibau vs. Dunham.
Whatever does trend in the UFC for the new year, you can be sure we will take you there, following
all your favorite fights and fighters.
If you want to fight like the pros, you've got to train like the pros! It's
just a fact that what you put in to your game is what you will get out of it so start the
New Year out right with a great workout plan with excellent equipment to back you up.
Former TKO Featherweight
Champ, Mark Hominick can be seen in the photo above training with the Heavy Bag like so many UFC greats
do. The Heavy Bag is a legendary method of training that has been used throughout the history of
Martial Arts dating back to the ancient days of the Okinawan Makiwara and the Chinese Mook Jong.
Punching Bags usually hang from the ceiling or affix to a stand and produce amazing results. That is
why they remain one of the most tried and true pieces of training equipment in the Martial Arts.
We have a great selection of Heavy Bags and
offer the best prices you will find on them. Our reviews will help guide you to the perfect bag for
WHAT'S IN STORE FOR YOU
Although the traditional Heavy Bag makes for a fantastic workout, it is not always practical.
If you live in an apartment or even a home renter, chances are your landlord will not approve of holes
in the ceiling and you may not have room to mount one on a stand.
For those exact reasons, Century invented the Wavemaster line. Wavemasters are Freestanding
Heavy Bags that are anchored by a base that is filled with sand or water and can be easily filled or
emptied making them easy to store or even to transport.
The Wavemaster Original, Cardio Wavemaster, Wavemaster XXL and Wavemaster with Scoring Zones are
variations the line has to offer. Read more about Wavemasters and
find out how one can improve your game.
Another great way to work out is with BOB, the Body Opponent Bag. BOB is the best sparring
partner you could ever ask for. He will take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. With his anatomically
correct design and likelike feel, BOB helps you perfect your strikes, kicks and punches just like
training with a real partner.
When they made BOB, they threw away the mold or rather...they broke it. You may have heard
that the best seller of the BOB line, BOB XL, is currently out of circulation. So many were
being sold, the mold could not hold up. He is expected back by the end of the month and we will
keep you posted. You can preorder or request to be notified.
Sparring BOB and BOBBY Bully are currently available, however. Read all about the BOB
family and which is best for you.
As you make your New Year's resolutions and work towards your goals for 2013, we are
honored to be a part of your plan. We bring you rock bottom prices and excellent rates on
shipping and as always, if you have an questions, simply shoot us an email and we will be more
than happy to help you.
Remember what Mark Twain so eloquently said,
"If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always got." Go ahead, make
this YOUR YEAR!
How would you like to meet up with this guy in a dark alleyway? That's just what happened
when one unfortunate shoplifter ran into MMA Fighter Jesse Finney!
On December 21, Finney (seen with the red gloves on in the photo above), a Pro Boxer and coach for Chuck Norris' World Combat League, was on his way to the local
grocery store when he encountered a man running from a female employee, vodka bottles in hand.
Finney, who holds an impressive 23-0 kickboxing
record, an 8-2 boxing record, a 4-0 amateur MMA record, and a 6-1 professional MMA record, wasted
no time in taking the man to the ground.
In the process no one was seriously injured and only one bottle of vodka was broken.
Finney said that he was grateful
that “nobody got hurt,” but said that he’s “not going to let a man push a woman.”
Hats off to Finney, who reportedly made Santa's Nice List and is our
very own MMA Hometown Hero of the month.
DON'T DO THE CRIME
IF YOU CAN'T BEAT UP JESSE FINNEY
What's trending in MMA and the UFC right now seems to be the "what ifs", the cliff
hangers keeping us on the edge of our seats.
Now Georges St. Pierre won the fight with Carlos Condit at
UFC 154, what if he and Silva Anderson really do square off?
Will that calm down the roaring rage for Jon "Bones" Jones to take on Anderson
Will Anderson end up fighting St. Pierre instead? Anderson has been quoted as recently saying
he would rather fight St. Pierre. Does the St. Pierre vs. Condit outcome play a part in
that possible set up? And "what if" Jones moves back up in weight? Will that change everything?
Is the formation of a Women's UFC Division on the horizon for the near future? UFC
President, Dana White, says it, "Absolutely is." What would that entail and what Women Fighters
will fight, if so? When Ronda Rousey is out from under her Strikeforce contract, will she
join the ranks?
It seems the UFC is keeping us in suspense on many things that are possibly in the making
and with the holidays quickly approaching, it is looking like the New Year is promising to be
quite an exciting one so stay tuned and we'll be sure to keep you up to date!

SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS
ALL GEARED UP
May 19 was Armed Forces Day! In honor of this special day, Ultimate-MMA-Equipment.com made sure at
least one lucky troop got all geared up and well equipped.
When choosing a troop to donate to, the men of DET4 of the 1108th TASMG MS National Guard's Task Force
12 in Afghanistan quickly came to mind. We first heard of the troop when we got wind they were throwing a NCAA
Party not long ago. The event included a raffle so we donated some MMA equipment items.
It was the gratitude shown by the troop that amazed us.
You need only to look at the photos to see the
appreciation in their faces.
As it turns out, they are unable to practice any martial arts without full protective MMA Equipment so our donation of
MMA equipment was truly welcomed.
"I am a military combatives instructor but cannot train beyond level 1 because the safety issue without the
proper gear," stated Platoon Sargent Harold Compton.
"They will not allow us to order gear because we are a small piece of a bigger unit that is in Kuwait,"
As we got to know a little more about the troop, we learned that Sargent Compton is there on his
his brother-in-law is there on his second deployment and joining the crew for his first deployment is Sargent
Compton's son who is a Blackhawk mechanic. And if that isn't enough family in the force, the troop is supporting
the active duty Calvary unit that Sargent Compton's 25 year old nephew is in.
The Sargent laughed, "So my wife is the most stressed out spouse in history."
So, in honor of Armed Forces Day, Ultimate MMA Equipment let the troop pick out $500 in MMA gear, mma equipment
and apparel. It is our way of thanking the men and women of the Armed Forces for the great job they are doing
"I would like to express my deepest thanks for your generosity in support of our event and the equipment that
you so willingly sent after the party," Sargent Compton said. "Thanks for everything."
He concluded, "You make what we do much easier knowing that we not only are not forgotten but remembered and
Sargent…the pleasure was OURS!
