If Chael Sonnen and Mauricio Rua are providing the name value in the main event to help sell the UFC Fight Night 26 card for the big debut of the new Fox Sports 1 channel at tonight's (Sat., Aug. 17, 2013) show at the TD Garden Arena in Boston, Massachusetts, the big boys in the co-headlining attraction are providing the muscle.
Indeed, the hard hitting heavyweights are both looking to climb back into title contention and an impressive knockout victory at such a big show with so much hype behind it would go a long way towards solidifying as much.
So who's going to deliver in such a big spot? Tune in later tonight to find out.
MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire card on fight night (Sat., Aug. 17, 2013), starting with the Facebook "Prelims," which are scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. ET, right on through the FOX-Sports televised under card bouts and then main card action, which is slated to air at 8 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.
See you then!
