Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently snuck off a pre-fight press conference for its upcoming UFC on Fox 7: "Henderson vs. Melendez" event, which goes down this Saturday night (April 20, 2013) at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
All four main card match-ups were represented today (April 18) by their respective participants.
That means we get a sneak peek at this weekend's action as all eight fighters came nose-to-nose (kinda) for staredowns. While tepid as far as face-offs are concerned (you could park a Buick between "Smooth" and "El Nino"), there will be plenty of up-close and personal action in the "Shark Tank."

265 lbs.: Frank Mir vs. Daniel Cormier
