Fighting inside the Octagon means facing your fears. It also means facing a guy who wants to beat the crap out of you. Example above.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicked off this weekend's UFC on FUEL TV 7 festivities with today's (Feb. 13, 2013) "Barao vs. McDonald" pre-fight press conference from the Shootfighters Gym in London, England (watch it here).
Ladies and gentlemen, we have an Interim Bantamweight title on the line.
The UFC on FUEL TV 7 main event will feature temporary titleholder Renan Barao trying to keep his place in line against champion Dominick Cruz, who is on the sidelines with a bum knee. If he hopes to welcome the "Dominator" back to the Octagon and unify the division titles, he'll first have to get through Michael McDonald this weekend across the pond.
"Mayday," understandably, has other plans.
MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire card on fight day (Sat., Feb. 16, 2013), starting with the Facebook Prelims, which are scheduled to begin at 12 p.m. ET, as well as the six-fight main card, which is slated to air at 3 p.m. ET on FUEL TV.
