Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just days away from kicking off its UFC on FOX 4: "Shogun vs. Vera" network televised fight card, headlined by a light heavyweight fight between Mauricio Rua vs. Brandon Vera, live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
As usual, the promotion held its traditional pre-fight media open workout in advance of this weekend's festivities, featuring "Shogun" and "The Truth," as well as co-main event stars and fellow 205-pound title contenders, Lyoto Machida vs. Ryan Bader.
