With UFC 124 in the books, the MMA world has again turned to its typical speculation over the fight results that go beyond a mere victory or defeat. In the case of UFC 124, the fighters on the card set out to prove just why it is that every card is important and every fight has an effect on the division in which it is fought. This event was condemned by many as “being all about one fight” or “the UFC putting together a shitty undercard because they knew the main event would sell it out” and the vast majority of the MMA community felt that the card would have little or no impact on the UFC big picture. Those naysayers were wrong. UFC 124 provided the MMA community with a comeback, a second chance, and at least two solid title contenders. However it also sent several men back to the drawing board or worse, potentially out of the UFC.
After several changes in its date and location, Nemesis Fighting’s inaugural event, “MMA Global Invasion”, was held December 10 at the Barceló Bavaro Hotel and Casino Convention Center in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. The event was chock full of UFC and Strikeforce veterans and promised to showcase a handful of solid match-ups and offer all the potential to be a stacked card.
