These were the three biggest surprises and the three biggest disappointments from UFC Fight Night 67.

UFC Fight Night 67 was a card that flew under the radar, but it exceeded my expectations. Considering it was a week after the blockbuster UFC 187 card, it’s not totally surprising that a Fight Night card in Brazil wasn’t getting much love, but this event turned out to be a lot more exciting than…

UFC 183 concluded the biggest month for the promotion in over a year. The card saw the return of former middleweight champion Anderson Silva, as well as former welterweight title challenger Nick Diaz in a main event that seemed delightfully offbeat heading into the fight, and played out exactly that way. The fight wasn’t exactly…

I hate sounding pessimistic, because I’d like to consider myself a pretty optimistic guy, but UFC 161 really seems like the disaster that was UFC 149 all over again.
