For fans of mixed martial arts, this past week has been a slow crawl of steadily rising anticipation for tonight's "Cruz vs. Johnson" event, going down at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.
UFC on Versus 6 will feature Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz defending his title for the second time inside the Octagon against speedy top contender Demetrious Johnson.
In the co-main event of the evening, the biggest height difference between opponents in the history of the UFC will be highlighted when 6'11'' Stefan Struve slings leather with 5'11'' Pat Barry.
It's been a flurry of non-stop news, analysis, quotes, predictions and previews for the past week and it's certainly understandable if you missed out on a few stories.
