After every event MMA Fans and even some Media will make outlandish claims of a certain fight or the entire event being the “best/worst of the year/all-time” and last night’s UFC on FOX 7 was no different. As the card headed into the co-main and main event UFC on FOX 7 was being called the best card of the year all over the internet. Hard to blame them though, 8 of the first 10 fights ended within the first two rounds via knockout and you know how much fans love the knockout.
