Memorial Day weekend normally serves as one of the biggest UFC events of the year, and while UFC 173 won’t receive blockbuster attention, the quality of the bouts on the card is worthy of the weekend it falls on. Eight of the ten fighters on the pay-per-view portion of the card are ranked top 10…

The UFC’s event on FUEL TV last weekend featured 10 finishes in 12 fights, so we may have been a bit spoiled and perhaps thought the UFC was immune to the sort of tepid action that the World Series of Fighting put on Friday night. We were wrong. This was not a case of a…
