Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) is back once more with a pay-per-view event tomorrow night (Saturday, April 25th, 2015) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which is headlined by a flyweight title bout between champion Demetrious Johnson and challenger Kyoji Horiguchi. Here's the outline for tomorrow's show:

*Main Card *
125 lb title: Demetrious Johnson (21-2-1) vs. Kyoji Horiguchi (15-1)
215 lbs: Quinton Jackson (35-11) vs. Fabio Maldonado (22-7)
185 lbs: Michael Bisping (25-7) vs. C.B. Dollaway (15-6)
160 lbs: John Makdessi (12-3) vs. Shane Campbell (11-2)
135 lbs: Yves Jabouin (20-9) vs. Thomas Almeida (17-0)


*Preliminary Card *170 lbs: Patrick Cote (20-9) vs. Joe Riggs (40-15)
135 lbs: Alexis Davis (16-6) vs. Sarah Kaufman (17-2)
155 lbs: Chad Laprise (10-0) vs. Bryan Barberena (10-2)
155 lbs: Olivier Aubin-Mercier (5-1) vs. David Michaud (8-1)
170 lbs: Nordine Taleb (10-2) vs. Chris Clements (12-5, 1 NC)
115 lbs: Jessica Rakoczy (1-4) vs. Valerie Letourneau (6-3)
115 lbs: Aisling Daly (15-5) vs. Randa Markos (4-2)

This event is special because of the main event of the evening, which features the flyweight champion of the world Demetrious Johnson defending his title against top Japanese prospect Kyoji Horiguchi. Johnson is one of the top pound-for-pound fighters on the planet, and he's been nothing but dominant as the only UFC 125 pound champ. Horiguchi is lightning fast and might be the better striker in open space, but he'll have a lot of ground to make up in all the other facets of the sport.

Another fight to keep an eye on is the return of former light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, one of the most popular fighters in UFC history. Jackson was initially prevented from competing due to an injunction from his former promotion, Bellator, but a judge overruled the injunction and he's now slated to compete at a 215 pound catchweight.

Also, two of Canada's finest prospects will be on display on the preliminary card as lightweights Chad Laprise and Olivier Aubin-Mercier take on Bryan Barberena and David Michaud respectively. Both men were standouts on The Ultimate Fighter: Nations and both are looking to continue their rises up the 155 pound ladder.

Zurich Classic Preview

CE Manager Apr 21, 2015

The PGA Tour heads to the bayou for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans from TPC Louisiana, the ninth straight year it has been the host course and 10th overall. This is the final tuneup before a spectacular two-week extravaganza that features the WGC-Cadillac Match Play next week and THE PLAYERS Championship in two weeks. We will be seeing a strong field because of this as players want to get into a grove as nearly $20 Million in total purses await the next two weeks.

TPC Louisiana is a par-72, 7,425-yard track and while long, it does not necessarily reward the big hitters even though Bubba Watson shot that down four years ago after averaging a field best 331 yards off the tee. Five years ago, only four of the top 15 players finished with driving averages surpassing 300 yards so while length is important, it is more about precision here. The greens are massive but are filled will undulations so while hitting the green isn't difficult, what matters most is where they are hit.

The course was 26th out of 52 in difficulty five years ago and four years ago, it was the seventh most difficult out of the 21 par-72 tracks played. Three years ago after some modifications were made, scoring was at a record low and that record was broken again in 2013. Last year it averaged close to one shot under par. The weather looks pristine this week unlike last week as heavy rain and winds will not be an issue like they were in Hilton Head at the RBC Heritage.

The favorite this week is Dustin Johnson despite not playing here since 2008 when he missed the cut. Last year, it was Seung-Yul Noh earning his first PGA Tour win continuing a recent trend of first time winners as he was the seventh over the last 10 years to grab their maiden victory. David Toms and Jeff Overton are the only players in the field that have made the cut here the last five years and in total, only eight players have started and made the cut the last three years.

2015 Record to date after 14 events: +67.5 Units
