Making a Statement in Brazil (UFC Fight Night 56 Review)

The UFC found its way to Brazil once again this year as they continued a busy weekend with two fights from around the world. A day after the UFC went to Australia they appeared again this time from Brazil. It was a strange card in their second day of fights though as injuries ravaged through the entire roster of fighters.

TUF Brazil III Finale Preview

The Ultimate Fighter continues to grow every year with new countries participating in the show every season.
