The drought is almost over.
While there's been plenty of regional and International mixed martial arts (MMA) action over the past few weeks, fans of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) have been left high and dry since UFC 144 back on Feb. 25, 2012, as it marked the last live UFC event until the promotion makes its debut at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, on Sat., April 14, 2012.
Now you have an official event poster to help whet your appetite.
