Watch Mark Hunt trains for Chris Tuchscherer - they fight at UFC 127 in Sydney
Wow. What a historic month in MMA. We knew going in that it would be a big month given that the #1 and #2 heavyweights would both be fighting, but no one quite expected the way things turned out.
An in-depth, full preview of the UFC 116 preliminary card that includes two free match-ups airing on Spike TV at 9:00 PM EST. Check out all the analysis including predictions in this complete preview.
This is the calm before the storm. This weekend will see long reigning #1 Fedor Emelianenko face #9 Fabricio Werdum on Strikeforce; Fedor vs Werdum Showtime. Then the following weekend we'll see #2 Brock Lesnar face #3 Shane Carwin in a UFC heavyweight title unification bout at UFC 116 on July 3rd.
