I'm Going to UFC 152!

I got my UFC VIP Pass, the tickets go on sale as early as next week, and it'll be about a two month wait before I arrive in Toronto for UFC 152! My first live UFC. With the confirmation that Demetrius 'Mighty Mouse' Johnson will be taking on Joseph Benavidez in the first Flyweight title fight, this 125 lbs showdown is a solid replacement for the devastating loss of the Junior Dos Santos versus Cain Velasquez heavyweight title fight which is being moved to Brazil. Follow me as I prepare for the exciting day!
Another new addition to the card on September 22 is a middleweight battle between Michael 'The Count' Bisping and 'All American' Brian Stann. At this point I'm not sure who to cheer for; the loud mouth Brit who oozes the same sex appeal as David Beckham and Jason Statham or the patriotic Stann, a U.S Marine who will risk his life for his country. Bisping is coming off a (questionable) loss to the now down-in-the-dumps Chael Sonnen while Stann is finally recovered from a shoulder injury that kept him out of UFC 4 on FOX in August.  

And then there is BJ Penn taking on Rory Macdonald. Penn, a longtime fighter in the UFC and celebrated Hawaii'an warrior was until very recently, a retired dad. But it's back in the octagon for him and it won't be easy as Macdonald has the home field advantage.
 Macdonald, from British Columbia is only 22 and has been on the rise since entering the UFC. He is 4-1 compared to Penn who is 16-8-2, however Penn has not won a fight since 2009.

As the weeks progress I'll update you on how things are going along... if I get tickets (good seats I'm hoping!), how my online UFC shopping trip will go and any injury updates or fight news on the fighters appearing in UFC 152. What am I looking forward to most? Hearing the voice of the octagon Bruce Buffer say to the world that "We are LIVE!"
