The UFC is headed to London, England this weekend for UFC on FUEL TV 7, but before that happens UFC President Dana White gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at UFC 156. Watch as Alistair Overeem is upset by Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Tyron Woodley makes a grand UFC debut over Jay Hieron, Joseph Benavidez defeats Ian McCall, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira defeats Rashad Evans and Jose Aldo keeps his featherweight title against Frankie Edgar.
We previously shared video of UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo in preparation for his battle with Frankie Edgar at UFC 156. Now we will take you behind the scenes with Aldo on the actual fight day, where he went on to outlast a game Frankie Edgar to retain his featherweight title on Saturday night.
Monday means it’s Independent MMA Link Club day and our friends from around the way have a few things to say. ONE FC has new bouts announced for ‘Kings and Champions’. BAMMA 12 gets a headliner. Could Jessica “Evil” Eye become Bellator’s female face? Mr. Fertitta has high hopes for Ms. Ronda Rousey. Strikeforce crossovers cleaned up at UFC 156. And what is the MMA future for AXStv?
Mirko Cro Cop might still be angry about the two knees he took to the groin from Alistair Overeem back at DREAM 6 in September 2008 in Japan that halted the bout early via No Contest.
Or he might just be giving his unbiased opinion on what happens to a fighter who gets popped for elevated testosterone levels high enough to power a thoroughbred race horse, who then is forced to sit on the sidelines and return to the Octagon eight months later without pharmaceutical crutches.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans suffered a upset unanimous decision loss against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 156. The former champion was rumored to face UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva if he had beaten Nogueira. It wasn’t in the cards, but a move to the middleweight division is something Evans will need to do at this point in his career.
