This past weekend was stacked with MMA. Friday night saw the start of Bellator’s seventh season with Bellator 74, XFC 20 on AXS TV and another episode on The Ultimate Fighter: Team Carwin vs. Team Nelson. On Saturday morning the UFC was in Nottingham, England for the UFC on FUEL TV 5 and in the night-cap was Strikeforce from Sacramento…… oops wait nevermind.

The fans in Nottingham, England showed up for UFC on FUEL TV 5 early and they were rewarded with a solid fight card. The card was filled with hometown favorites, including Dan Hardy who lives within walking distance of the Capital FM Arena but the crowd made all the fighters fill at home.
This morning MMA fans are in for a little treat with the completely free UFC on FUEL TV 5: Struve vs. Miocic fight card.

All but one of the 22 fights on the UFC on FUEL TV 5 card made weight today in Nottingham, England. The lone fight was welterweight DaMarques Johnson who took the fight on short notice and was unable to make the agreed upon weight of 175 pounds.
After holding their first event in six weeks this past Saturday the UFC is back again this Saturday with the UFC on FUEL TV 5 card from Nottingham, England. Thankfully the main card will air live here in the states on FX starting at 1pm PT / 4pm ET, with the complete preliminary card streaming live on Facebook.
Coming off a crazy paced, jam-packed few months of MMA action; things have slowed down heading into September. The unfortunate cancellation of UFC 151 has put six weeks between UFC events and with Bellator’s new season not beginning until the end of the month, things seem too quiet.
The UFC is all set to make its return to Nottingham, England for UFC on Fuel TV 5 on September 29th, and has just added a heavyweight bout, which will serve as the main event between rising heavyweight stars Stefan Struve and Stipe Miocic. Both Struve and Miocic are carrying some serious momentum coming into this fight, as Struve is currently riding a three fight victorious streak, and Miocic has yet to taste defeat in his professional career, standing at an impressive 9-0, including all three of his UFC appearances.
