This is the fourth episode of Pro UKMMA Now Radio hosted by Jay Cee. In this show Jay Cee goes through the event results for Fight UK 9 and talks about some of the fights and results from UFC on FOX 7, which took place this past weekend. Also in this episode, Jay looks ahead to UFC 159 and discusses some of the matchups set to take place on Saturday night. He runs down the fight card, and gives you some Cage Warriors, UCFC, Legend FC, UFC, MMA and GLORY news updates from this past week.
The UFC on FOX 7 event took place this past Saturday at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The fights at the event went as expected for the most part, but there were a few surprises in there as well. Some fighters put themselves in a great spot to make moves within their respective weight classes, others seemingly fell towards ultimate gatekeeper status.
The highly anticipated main event that would determine who is the best lightweight on the planet, did not disappoint as UFC champion Benson Henderson and Gilbert Melendez engaged in a five-round battle of attrition that saw the champion get the nod on the cards by way of split decision with scores of 47-48, 48-47, and 48-47.
