In the UFC’s first televised title fight since UFC 75, Cruz defeated Johnson via unanimous decision. (more…)

Blueprint: Aldo vs. Florian

UFC 136 is LIVE on PPV Oct. 8!

Kenny Florian might be the best 155-pound fighter in the world who hasn’t yet won a UFC championship.

I have a sneaking suspicion that he will do just that, too. But I digress  . . . Click here for more by Michael DiSanto, UFC.com
