Undefeated heavyweight sensation Karlos "The Terminator" Vemola has been signed by the UFC and will debut at UFC 116: LESNAR VS CARWIN on July 3, 2010 in Las Vegas.

Vemola's first 6 fights were all in CFC (Cage Fighting Championships).

Karlos Vemola (7-0) is an absolute berserker, an insanely intense and strong fighter who loves to get into his opponent's head. Vemola will walk right up to his opponents in the cage before the fight, and stare them down before the pre-fight introductions. Once the bell rings, Vemola is like a jacked-up Tasmanian devil.

The following highlight video will give you a preview of the madness that's about to be unleashed upon the UFC heavyweight division.

Keith Jardine Fights for His UFC Survival at TUF 11 Finale Against Matt Hamill



The MMAjunkie is reporting a showdown between Keith "The Dean of Mean" Jardine and Matt "The Hammer" Hamill at The Ultimate Fighter Season 11 Finale live on Spike TV on June 19, 2010 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. This fight will headline the TUF 11 event, along with the crowning of a new TUF 11 middleweight tournament champion.

Keith Jardine has lost his last 3 UFC fights. Overall, Jardine is just 2-4 in his last 6 Octagon bouts. Jardine is coming off a KO loss to Ryan Bader at UFC 110, which followed a TKO loss to Thiago Silva at UFC 102. Jardine's currently losing streak started with a decision loss to Quinton "Rampage" Jackson at UFC 96. Jardine got his start on The Ultimate Fighter. Jardine was a participant on the second season of the revolutionary reality series. Jardine has fought exclusively for the UFC for well over 4 years now, but a fourth Octagon loss in a row would put a severe strain on that relationship. The fact that Jardine is still being featured in a prominent fight despite his recent struggles, is a testament to the UFC's faith in the Dean's drawing power. Whether it's true or not, Jardine will definitely feel like he'll be fighting for his UFC life against Matt Hamill.

Mat Hamill won his last fight by disqualification after Jon "Bones" Jones had him mounted and was raining down elbows, the last couple of which were thrown in 12-6 direction, which is currently illegal in the UFC. Jones opened up a cut on Hamill's forehead with the illegal strikes. Referee Herb Dean paused the action to take away a point from Jones, but Hamill remained on the mat, and because Dean interpreted that Hamill could not continue due to the strikes, he called the fight as per the rules. Intentional illegal strikes are a disqualifiable offense.

Representing the yin to Keith Jardine's yang scenario, Matt Hamill has won 3 straight fights. Along with the DQ, Hamill has a head kick knockout of Mark Munoz and a TKO win over Reese Andy. Hamill's only career losses have come against Rich Franklin, who is the only man to finish Hamill, and Michael Bisping who won a highly controversial split decision over Hamill in London, England at UFC 75. All of Hamill's earlier Octagon wins were over solid opponents. Hamill has wins over Tim Boetsch, Rex Holman, Seth Petruzelli and Jesse Forbes in the UFC. Similar to Jardine, Hamill has his roots in The Ultimate Fighter. Hamill had to bow out of the third season due to injury.

Good Thing for Roy Nelson It Ain't a Pretty Contest - Big Country and Cheick Kongo To Beat Each Other Up at UFC 116


Cheick Kongo and Roy "Big Country" Nelson are likely for a heavyweight bout underneath the heavyweight bout of all heavyweight bouts at UFC 116: LESNAR VS CARWIN on July 3, 2010 in Las Vegas. On Independence Day weekend, the American Nelson will take on the Frenchman Kongo.

In his last fight, Cheick Kongo (15-6) laid a beating on Paul Buentello like he had something to prove, which he did, coming of back-to-back losses to Frank Mir and Cain Velasquez. Buentello paid dearly for those losses of Kongo and finally tapped away his own UFC career in the third round.

Roy Nelson (15-4) is coming off a wham bam thank you Stefan Struve for getting clobbered fight. Struve got 39 seconds of ring time in before Nelson put him to sleep and won the UFC's Knockout of the Night bonus. Nelson has scored back-to-back stone cold knockouts, starting with Brendan Schaub to win The Ultimate Fighter Season 10. This is a big test for Nelson, and an awesome chance to beat a bigtime opponent on a colossal stage, with the return of PPV megastar Brock Lesnar headlining this event.

WEC 48 RESULTS - Leonard Garcia and The Korean Zombie in Fight of the Year on Spike TV, Followed by Best PPV of Year


WEC 48: ALDO VS FABER was held Saturday April 24, 2010 at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, California. It was the PPV debut of the WEC, and it couldn't have went any better. The PPV was produced by the UFC team under the Zuffa umbrella, with Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan announcing and Bruce Buffer introducing the fighters. The biggest news to come out of WEC 48 actually involved Strikeforce and the UFC. Current Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Jake Shields was shown on camera quasi-hugging it out with UFC President Dana White, who mouthed the words, "He's mine." Now this could simply be White and Shields coming out of the closet together, or more likely White is referring to the UFC's intention to sign Jake Shields once he becomes a free agent in a couple of months.


Oh, and a f-cking killer fight card was presented by the hottest organization in the fight business right now. From top to bottom, the madness was out of control. In the main event, Jose "Junior" Aldo went 5 rounds with Urijah "The California Kid" Faber in a fight that somewhat resembled UFC 112's Silva-Maia, minus all the douchebaggery of Anderson Silva. Aldo hurt Faber early and often, but wasn't able to close, and lost focus in the last couple of rounds. Faber's leg took a holy hell amount of abuse, as Aldo chopped away at the base of the 30-year-old California Kid. For a man as acclaimed as Aldo is in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, to think of what an intense striking machine he is on his feet, it is true that the featherweights have found their messiah.

Ben "Smooth" Henderson dealt with Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in no time at all. A swift two minutes in and the Cowboy was tappin' to a guillotine choke. Henderson has decimated the WEC lightweight ranks. One wonders how Henderson would stack up against UFC 155-pounders? Introducing a flyweight division into the WEC would allow the UFC to absorb the WEC lightweights and would totally separate any conflict between the two promotions. A lightweight title unification bout could be promoted in the process. A winter 2010 fight between champions Ben Henderson and Frankie Edgar/BJ Penn would be an awesome way to cap off the year.

ASTRA RESULTS - Hidehiko Yoshida Fights Former Student in Farewell Match on 4/25/10 in Japan - Plus Tribute Video

The final chapter of the MMA career of Hidehiko Yoshida was written Sunday April 25, 2010 at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo, Japan. ASTRA was promoted to celebrate the career of Yoshida, with the legend himself in the main event in his retirement match. Yoshida passed the torch to Kazuhiro Nakamura, his former student, with a unanimous decision loss. In the co-main event, former UFC fighter Michihiro Omigawa won a decision over future UFC fighter Micah Miller. Enson Inoue got his first MMA win in over 6 years, but remarkably only lost once during the same stretch, you do the math. Or don't, this is only Enson's second fight since January 2004. It appeared Ryo "Piranha" Chonan had pulled himself out of the slump he was in, when he got a big win over Andrews Nakahara at DREAM 13, but Jung Hwan Cha put Chonan right back in the slump, both figuratively and literally, with a knockout. Jorge "Gamebred" Masvidal won the closest of close split decisions over Naoyuki Kotani, with the final decision coming down to judge Matsumoto's "must" verdict, after he had the fight a 30-30 tie on his scorecard. The other two judges were split between Masvidal and Kotani.

CFX/XKL EVOLUTION 2 RESULTS - Mayhem in Minneapolis, Minnesota 4/24/10

CFX PRESENTS XKL EVOLUTION II: MAYHEM IN MINNEAPOLIS was held in Minnesota on Saturday April 24, 2010 at the Target Center. The main event featured a heavyweight showdown between Travis "Diesel" Wiuff and Jeff "The Snowman" Monson that lasted 3 rounds. Wiuff was on the right end of a split decision. Late replacement and MMA rookie Adrian Miles fought the legendary Dave Menne in the co-main event, but fell short on the judges' scorecard tally. Hot-and-cold Drew Fickett chocked out fellow journeyman Derrick "The Eraser" Noble. Shana "Rock Solid" Olsen remained undefeated against a strong opponent in Yoko Takahashi. Brock Larson took a positive step in resurrecting his MMA career with a first round submission over Brian "Not Austin" Green. Ironically, had Larson beaten the actual Brian Austin Green in this fight, it would've garnered a lot more mainstream publicity for this PPV. MMA's "Ironman" Travis Fulton added to his insane record with another win, and over a solid opponent in Brad Kohler.
