Two New Contenders in Minny (UFC on FX 5 Review)

The UFC made their way to Minnesota this past Friday as they went to figure out the order of things in two divisions. The Flyweight and Heavyweight divisions are still a bit of a mystery in the UFC and UFC on FX 5 went a long way to figuring out who the top contenders would be. In the main event of UFC on FX 5 the UFC would see two more heavyweight fighters face off for the second week in a row as they looked to sort out the division.

The end of two Legendary Careers

UFC 137 saw three fights be made for their main event after Nick Diaz flaked on two press conferences without telling anyone and Georges St. Pierre suffered an injury during training. After the smoke cleared the main event would feature Nick Diaz who received his main event after all and BJ Penn who was looking to make one more run at the championship. The respect was there before the fight as Diaz had said he looked up to Penn before he became a fighter. During the weigh-in the fighters seemed to lose that respect after Diaz bumped heads with Penn and both fighters were separated.
