Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held what promotion president Dana White described as an "embarrassing" fight card that "sucked" last Saturday night (July 21, 2012) when UFC 149: "Faber vs. Barao" went down inside the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Following Matt Riddle's submission win over Chris Clements, the next four main card match-ups went to the judges' scorecards and at least three of those remaining four, particularly the heavyweight fight between Cheick Kongo vs. Shawn Jordan, had mixed martial arts (MMA) fans struggling to stay interested.
"I dislocated my left and right shoulder and the right clavicle. It's painful. In training camp I had good partners, they pushed me a lot, even with my injuries. They were not nice. Sometimes you have to do things like this to become the best."
Hear Kongo (via MMA Heat) get into more detail regarding his shoulder injury as well as his performance against Jordan, after the jump.
