UFC 133 is airing on PPV tomorrow, August 6th at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia PA.  The main event is going to be one to remember.  Former Light heavyweight champions Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans square off in what looks to be a good match.  Tito Ortiz is coming off a big win against Ryan Bader a few weeks ago at UFC 132.  After several back injuries and a devastating losing streak; what looked to be a diminishing career is starting to gain some sparks after that win.

While Ortiz is fresh off a win at UFC 132, Rashad Evans has had a long absence from the ring.  Will this have an impact on the fight?  Probably not.  Rashad “Suga” Evans only has one professional loss, against Lyoto Machada, holding 15(wins) 1(Loss) 1(Draw)– that draw being the last time Ortiz and Evans met at UFC 73.

You can expect a good ground fight from these two because wrestling is both of their strong points.  If Evans’ is smart, keeping it a stand-up for a while will prove beneficial since Ortiz’s strong point is definitely on the ground.  Both contenders are strong with wrestling; however, Evans has one-punch knock out power and clearly a speed advantage.

Both contenders have a good shot at winning– both have some handicaps against them.

So, who will win?

Through my observations: it seems that most grappling classes are male dominant. It’s not that there are a lot of women coming in and getting turned off by something that surrounds our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes; it seems that women just aren’t aware of the benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training and not coming in to see exactly what Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ) really is about.  So that leads me to ask why aren’t there more women taking interest in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ)?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. It can be a dangerous world for a woman and almost ALL RAPES happen being pinned to the ground by a bigger, stronger opponent. Wouldn’t you want to feel confident that if someone were to gain dominance over you on the ground, you would have the knowledge to possibly prevent the rape and save your life?

Women should take more interest in Martial Arts in general…not only for the self-defense aspects of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ), Thai Kickboxing, Filipino Jiu-Jitsu, or Mixed Martial Arts(MMA), but for the empowerment of being a woman. It is definitely a confidence builder and who doesn’t want more confidence? It’s fun and active. It’s a great way to stay in shape and increase flexibility.  Taking martial arts or a group sport, in general, helps you meet new people with similar interest; however, the power of community among members at Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts, Salem MA, is incredible.

At Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts, Salem MA, we don’t just teach you a series of moves for self-defense. We instill within you the confidence, through self-defense, to know you are prepared to handle yourself in ANY situation.
