It’s an unusually absurd weekend of MMA fights. Coming off one of the biggest MMA shows in history we suddenly have a weekend packed with more high end MMA than you can shake a stick at... just none of it on the same card. Gegard Mousasi is rematching Uriah Hall in Belfast, while Kyoji Horiguchi is taking on Ali Bagautinov. And over in Sao Paulo Ryan Bader, Thomas Almeida, & Claudia Gadelha are all set to battle. Throw in some Bellator fights and that’s a lot of MMA going down on a Saturday.

So, we’re here to parse out the UFC end of things. There’s a Bellator Vivi right here in case you’re interested, and we’ll have an Invicta Vivi up soon too. If you enjoyed the show, give us a “like” over on YouTube. And while you’re there, consider subscribing to MMANATIONDOTCOM.
