A Night of First in Japan (UFC Fight Night 52 Review)

The UFC travelled to Japan once again as they brought the show to where MMA got its start. They would feature a fighter that had spent his fair share of time in Japan while fighting through the early days of the sport. In those days there were really no other places to fight other than Japan. The country brought MMA to a new level, one that made the fighters superstars and paid them well. In the USA at the time MMA was still a basement bawl type of sport that got little recognition in the public.

UFC Fight Night 52 Preview

The UFC will continue to showcase one of the most exciting divisions in the sport as two more heavyweights face-off in the octagon. Las weekend Andrei Arlovski announced his return to the division in beating Antonio Silva. For the win Arlovski moved up the rankings to #7 as he is ready to come for the title. He will have plenty to go through to get there though including the two heavyweights that will headline UFC Fight Night 52. Roy Nelson, ranked #8, and Mark Hunt, ranked #6, have been working their way up the rankings for a while now.
