Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Sara McMann vs Liz Carmouche added to Feb. 19 UFC show
Today the UFC announced that Sara McMann vs Liz Carmouche has been added to UFC Fight Night 105 Feb. 19 at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, NS. This show will air on Fox Sports 1 in the US and TSN in Canada. Fans may recall that these two were supposed to face each other in Strikeforce in 2012. But Sara got hurt and then Zuffa closed Strikeforce and Liz got to fight Ronda Rousey for the inaugural UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship. Both fighters have had ups and downs in the UFC. But right now both are on two fight winning streaks. But I think Sara has beaten a higher level of competition. She got a big win on Dec. over Alexis Davis by second round rear naked choke. Sara's success depends on her level of aggression. Sometimes she's passive and that has cost her in the past. In her last fight, Liz beat Katlyn Chookagian by split decision. Neither fighter performed well. So I expect Sara to be the favourite. But both have given away fights in the past. I guess the big question is who wants it more.
