It’s a shame Matt Brown-Carlos Condit fell apart after the former went out with an injury but UFC on FOX 9 is still a stout show. There are some excellent undercard efforts in the form of Pat Healy-Bobby Green, Edson Barboza-Danny Castillo, and Zach Makovsky-Scott Jorgensen, as well as main card clashes like Joe Lauzon-Mac Danzig, Chad Mendes-Nik Lentz, and Urijah Faber-Michael McDonald. And, of course, you can’t forget about the rematch/title-fight between flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson and consensus #2 Joseph Benavidez. The duo duked it out en route to a closely-contested Split Decision win for Johnson first time around, but Benavidez has been on fire ever since and is arguably the favorite to win despite being the contender rather than champion. P.S. – It’s all on free (or almost free) television! (PHOTO CREDIT: Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports)
Welcome back to the 10-Point Must! Every week I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section.
