During last night’s UFC on FOX 6 preliminary card, lightweight TJ Grant made a huge statement. Not only was it his fourth consecutive win since moving down to the 155 pound weight class, but the way he defeated the very tough Matt Wiman put an exclamation point on things.
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.
Anthony Pettis is looking to get a title shot by taking out Donald Cerrone at this Saturday’s UFC on Fox 6, but even with a win he might be waiting a long time.
The UFC on Fox series has been heating up with their stacked television cards and this weekend’s UFC on FOX 6 is no exception to the rule. We have the first defense of the Flyweight title on hand for our main event, as champion Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson takes on TUF 14 winner John Dodson, who will look to be the third TUF winner to take a title in the UFC.
The first month of 2013 starts out pretty slow in regards to MMA. Fans don’t get a major event until the second Saturday of the month when Strikeforce bids farewell with one final event on January 12th. It’s not until the third week when things really begin to pick up as Bellator’s eight season kicks off on Spike, The Ultimate fighter 17 begin and back to back Saturdays of UFC action.
