Hendricks’ Focus, MacDonald Mic’d Up, Cormier 1-on-1 and Mir’s Warrior Code on UFC ULTIMATE INSIDER
UFC TONIGHT Airs Tuesdays at 10:00 PM ET; UFC ULTIMATE INSIDER Begins at 10:30 PM ET
LOS ANGELES, CA – On this week’s UFC TONIGHT SPECIAL EDITION: FRANK MIR’S FIGHTER’S CUT, the two-time UFC heavyweight champion gives us an inside look at two of his most memorable fights. It’s a candid fly-on-the-wall look as Mir remembers the greatest moments of his career.
First, he relives the bone-cracking submission victory that first won him the UFC heavyweight championship at UFC 48 against Tim Sylvia. Then, watch as Frank remembered his 2008 Submission of the Year victory over Brock Lesnar. From Mir’s thoughts on the Sylvia controversy to his unique take on Lesnar’s chest muscles, it’s a half hour you’ll have to see to believe.

This week on UFC ULTIMATE INSIDER, Johny Hendricks’ path to the pinnacle of the welterweight division has been quick and devastating for his opponents. Bigg Rigg’s three Knockout of the Night performances in his past five fights have put him on the cusp of a title shot. See how his focus has never been sharper as he heads into UFC 158. An injury forced Rory MacDonald off UFC 158 but the welterweight prodigy still looms large as a likely future opponent for anyone hunting the 170 pound strap. MacDonald was mic’d up and provided the live commentary as Johny Hendricks put on a show at UFC 154.
Host Jon Anik welcomes Daniel Cormier into the studio for a discussion on the heavyweight’s MMA journey thus far, his pending Octagon debut against Frank Mir and what the future holds for the US Olympian as he weighs his opportunities in the light heavyweight division. Finally, former two-time UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir made his UFC debut in 2001. Now an elder statesman, Mir has a unique perspective on what it means to be a UFC fighter.
