UFC on Fox 1

Unread postby fightdr » Wed Nov 09, 2011 5:45 am

The 2 best heavyweights in the world going toe to toe on national TV.
This is huge for the sport and should be a great fight.
You couldn't ask for a better fight to kick off the UFC/Fox partnership.
Saturday night is going to be a great night.

Ben Henderson will hopefully expose the overhyped Clay Guida also, i'm tired of that dude's act. Henderson is one of the most exciting fighters in the sport.

Recently rewatched Velasquez's fight with Lesnar on UFC Unleashed.

Forgot how bad he just absolutely destroyed him. An awesome display.

Looking forward to this one Sat night.

Would be good for the sport if the one fight they show on free tv went 1:30.

At least it isn't boxing...I guess.

Saturday night I got back from Pittsburgh where my son had his first MMA fight as an amateur, and turned on this DVR's program. Fast forwarded through the build-up. And the fight itself was quick and to the point. Didn't have to stay up much later to watch.

I must say I'm a bit surprised by the results, but in a quickie like that, an upset is more understandable. I may go back and watch the build-up, don't know anything about UFC. I admit I wasn't excited about the sport (or my son fighting) until I saw it in person.
