The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back in London, England last Saturday (March 18, 2017) for UFC Fight Night 107: Anderson vs. Manuwa. It was an interesting night of scraps that saw only four of 11 bouts end inside the distance. The night of scraps is now in our rear view, so let’s take a…

Perhaps it was due to the fight inexplicably airing until 1am ET, or the fact that most relevant bout on the card took place approximately three hours earlier, but the end of the UFC’s first trip to Maine seemed like a downpoint.

Some MMA fans have been complaining about saturation with the UFC’s schedule in 2014, while others love the fact that there’s an event nearly every week. One of those groups will be very happy over the next few weeks, as the organization takes a rare three-week break. After that however, there will be eight consecutive…
