GalaxyMMA, Noons, UFC

After one organization made its return to the Blaisdell Arena in nearly two years, another has set its sights on bringing MMA back to the big time.

An organization called GalaxyMMA is scheduled to put on its first mixed martial arts card at the Blaisdell Arena on May 1. The headliner is a heavyweight showdown between UFC veterans Scott Junk and Fabiano Scherner. It also has a co-main event matchup of Tyson Nam against Keola Silva as well as a 155-pound lightweight tournament scheduled for the show.

Its Web site is scheduled for launch today and can be viewed HERE.

Former Big Island resident K.J. Noons made a succesful return to MMA tonight/this morning with a victory at DREAM 13 in Japan. Noons defeated Andre Dida by unanimous decision in a 15-minute standup fight that saw Dida spent most of the time moving backward. Noons looked solid, working a nice job and vicious body shots, but he left himself open at times to eat a few too many shots on the chin. His defense will need work, but a win is a win, especially against a tough guy like Dida.

Commentators for the show, which was aired on HDNet, said Noons and Tatsuya Kawajiri could meet on an upcoming DREAM show.

In case you didn’t hear the news that broke last week, DIRECTV and the VERSUS network settled their differences, allowing me to see the UFC event on Sunday. Big win for Jon Jones over Brandon Vera, but once again, I’ll make the point that we don’t need elbows in the UFC. 1) They are vicious and can really cause serious injury and 2) They can cause cheap cuts that can force a fight to be stopped and give somebody who doesn’t deserve it a cheap victory.

I’m trying to stay up for the DREAM main event between Joachim Hansen and Bibiano Fernandez, but it has been a crazy 24 hours of MMA, and it only gets better this Saturday as UFC 111 goes down, featuring fights between Georges St-Pierre and Dan Hardy and Frank Mir and Shane Carwin.

    I have observed that in cameras, extraordinary detectors help to concentrate automatically. These sensors with some cams change in contrast, while others make use of a beam of infra-red (IR) light, specially in low light. Higher specification cameras oftentimes use a mixture of both techniques and probably have Face Priority AF where the digicam can ‘See’ the face and focus only upon that. Many thanks for sharing your ideas on this weblog.
