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.

Plenty of Thrills in Milwaukee

The UFC went to Milwaukee for their 5th Live on Versus event and it turned out to be better than many of the Pay Per View events. With 7 total finishes in the card there was enough great action to keep you interested and that including the main event. Before the fight Dan Hardy and Chris Lytle were both essentially preparing to fight for their lives. With rumours swirling around Dan Hardy it seemed as though Hardy would be cut from the UFC roster if he lost to Lytle. With Hardy losing his last three fights and not looking great in all three he was on the brink of never fighting in the UFC again. As his last chance he was given a shot against UFC veteran Chris Lytle in order to get back into the conversation in the welterweight. Meanwhile Chris Lytle seemed to be looking to get to the top of the welterweight division after a long career that has had its ups and downs. This was not the case however as just before the weigh-ins Lytle announced that he would be leaving the UFC after this fight to focus on his family life
