Third times a charm. Twice these former training partners have been unsuccessfully pitted against each other to fight it out. Twice it failed to come to fruition. UNTIL NOW!
The UFC finally returned State side for a BIG event with a Light Heavyweight Title Fight. Atlanta, Georgia, the scene of Rashad's most devastating victory. Was Rashad able to make history in the Philips Arena once again? Simple answer..
Jones is still the champ, and will be for a while to come yet. Sorry Hendo.
Haters Gonna Hate!!
This event wasn't the highest scoring event ever with a massive 8 decisions and only one submission. Also, it must be the first time ever that 3 fights produced 100% pick for one fighter. One of those fighters was Mark Hominick....
