How often do you get to fight in a hanger these days? Not often for sure, but at Fight for the Troops, there was all kinds of action inside the base at Fort Campbell, and plenty of military men and women entertaining the soldiers.

Less than a day before the Super Bowl, the UFC put on a featherweight super fight in the UFC 156 main event.
