Another UFC event is fast approaching us, and it's another mid-week event to keep the fans perky. Michael Bisping and Tim Kennedy headline the show, which will conclude the TUF Nations season with all the finalists being from Patrick Cote's team. Here are five reasons why you should tune in.
From aged veterans like Michael Bisping and Tim Kennedy, to young prospects like Dustin Kimura and the TUF finalists, this card is stacked with all-round gifted fighters.
Sarah Kaufman and Leslie Smith are going to produce a great battle with both fighters being very aggressive. Expect fireworks and a possible FOTN candidate.
One of the most well-rounded entertaining featherweights in the UFC, Poirier is a must-watch. Watch for him to use his kickboxing skills to his advantage and likely take one step closer to a title match.
Canada, a country well known for its MMA ability, won this TUF competition as the finale plays host to four Canadian contestants. It will be interesting to see if the finalists keep their killer instinct while fighting their fellow countrymen.
Perhaps it because I'm a Brit myself, but I've always found Michael Bisping incredibly talented in and out of the ring. People often discredit his wins, but his thrashing of Alan Belcher was undeniable, and we'll probably see the same kind of performance on Wednesday.
