Following Wednesday Fight Night 27 event, the UFC makes a quick turnaround for tomorrow’s UFC 164 from Milwaukee, Wisconsin as part of the Harley Davidson Hometown Showdown. Headlining the fight card is the UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson looking to avenge his loss to Anthony Pettis back at WEC 53.
If the FOX executives had a thing against blood then they really didn’t like tonight’s UFC on FOX 6. Nasty Elbows turned unlucky fighters into a bloody mess that would have made any horror movie director proud. It was the flyweights that headlined UFC on FOX 6 but the featherweights and lightweights stole the show.
It seems like these FOX cards have been getting special treatment as yet again Saturday’s UFC on FOX 6 looks stacked. Headlining the card will be the flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson as he makes his first title defense against The Ultimate Fighter winner John Dodson.
After longer than a year off due to an undisclosed injury, John Hathaway (16-1) returned to his fighting ways at last weekend UFC on FOX 3.

In the fight Hathaway proved to have the more effective striking and grappling by completely dominating Krauss for a unanimous decision.
The UFC on FOX 3 card started off tonight with two bouts streaming on Facebook before the remaining six preliminary fights aired live on Fuel TV.

Still working out what will work best on network TV the UFC returns to FOX this Saturday with the UFC on FOX 3 from East Rutherford, New Jersey. The third installment on FOX has four main card bouts that should have a little bit of everything to showcase the sport and the UFC to new and old fans watching on network television.
