UFC star and coach on TUF 19 was in Orlando, Florida this past weekend for UFC on FOX 11 but made it home to New Jersey in time for Easter. As you can see from his pregnant wife the Edgar clan is growing keeping to former champ busy on and off the mat. Looking forward to this season of The Ultimate Fighter but even more the third battle between Frankie and BJ which will take place at the shows Finale on July 9th. Going to be a big year for Toms River’s favorite son.
Big weekend for The Pitbull as he made his long awaited return to the octagon after over a two year lay-off…Thiago came out and needed to find his range but by round 2 it was vintage Alves throwing heavy leather and brutal kicks! Alves earned himself a hard-fought victory over the very game Seth Baczynski and even received a nice $50k bonus for his efforts. Congratulations to Thiago, excited to see him back soon!
The beautiful Chrissy Blair makes this guys day in Orlando!
Winning the Ultimate Fighter definitely has its perks and TUF 18 winner Julianna Pena takes in UFC on FOX 11 last night with the boss. Pena suffered a horrific knee injury that will likely keep her out of action for two years but with the popularity that comes with winning the show and the lack of depth in the women’s division she is still a rising star and being treated as such. We wish the best to Julianna in her long rehab and look forward to seeing her back in competition.
For those without Fight Pass you are welcome.
Tough fight last night in the main event between Travis Browne and Fabricio Werdum. Looked like Browne gassed a bit in the middle of the first round and it later was reported that in addition to his broken hand, Travis also broke a rib in the first round. Tough fight for Browne but incredible he was able to push through for 5 rounds after breaking both his rib and his hand during the first 5 minutes. Heal up quick Travis, excited to see you back strong!
