Sunday night will see the UFC make its first foray into Croatia, with a Fight Pass card in Zagreb. The headline fight is a heavyweight contest between a former champion in Junior dos Santos, and an aspiring contender in Ben Rothwell. Coming into this fight, these two heavyweights couldn’t be further apart in their form with dos Santos going 2-3 in his last five fights and Ben Rothwell on a four-fight win streak dating back to 2013.
After having spent a combined time of 27 years competing in Mixed Martial Arts, you’d have thought that Mark Hunt and Frank Mir would have met long before this Sunday evening, when the two veterans are set to square off in Brisbane, Australia.
Did you know that there was a UFC card on today? No? Neither did a lot of fans or media alike. Although though the UFC has eased up on the number of cards at the start of 2016, UFC on Fox 18 has flown under the radar even though it could have big implications on the light-heavyweight division.
Loss > title shot > belt.
Could history repeat itself at UFC 192?
