Connor is back!!! Not that I missed him at all. Really, I don't even care. he can go do whatever. I'm cool. However, as long as he's willing to grace us with his presence, we should get to breaking down some fights. This week we're looking at UFC Ottawa, where Rory MacDonald takes on Stephen Thompson in the main event for the chance of becoming the top contender of the welterweight division. It's a great action fight sitting atop a middling card without much name value, but a lot of fights that should make for entertaining viewing.
