UFC 123 – Jon Jones likely to face Forrest Griffin on November 20th in Chicago, Illinois

August 9, 2010 All MMA News, UFC  Comments 

It looks likely that exciting light heavyweight star on the rise, Jon Jones will take on former champion, Forrest Griffin at UFC 123 on November 20th in Chicago, Illinois.

A source close to the situation revealed the news to MMABay.co.uk earlier today during a brief telephone conversation. At least one fighter has verbally agreed to the bout, meaning paperwork could be issued shortly.

Jones is coming off another impressive first round win, controlling Vladimir Matyushenko on the ground before pounding him out. He also holds notable wins over Stephan Bonnar, Jake O’Brien and Brandon Vera.

As for Griffin, he’s coming off a split decision win over Tito Ortiz last November. Prior to that he’d lost back-to-back fights to Rashad Evans and Anderson Silva inside the octagon. Stay tuned to MMABay for more on this as we get it.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
