Fight Night Winnipeg media day main-card faceoffs

Fight Night Winnipeg

The Fight Night Winnipeg Media Day faceoffs took place today.

The faceoffs were pretty uneventful today ahead of this weekend’s UFC Fight Night Winnipeg card. The only flare-up occurred when Santiago Ponzinibbio and Mike Perry came face to face. Mike Perry had some harsh words for The Ponz, and they went back and forth for a moment.

The main event will feature former Welterweight champion Robbie Lawler facing off with former Lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos. It should be a really good card, with tons of action fights. The main cards air on FOX Saturday night at 5 PM PST. The Fight Pass prelims begin at 1 PM PST and then the Fox Sports 1 Prelims kick off at 2 PM.

Thanks to the UFC for posting the video via their Twitter.

Fight Night Winnipeg: Road to the Octagon – Lawler vs Dos Anjos

Fight Night Winnipeg

The UFC has produced an entertaining look behind the scenes of Fight Night Winnipeg.

The UFC is preparing for yet another incredible event this weekend. It seems like they’ve been on quite a run lately putting on entertaining, stacked cards. In the feature bout of Fight Night Winnipeg, Welterweights Robbie Lawler and Rafael dos Anjos will meet to find a potential opponent for champion Tyron Woodley.

The main event pits former UFC Welterweight champion Lawler against former Lightweight champion Dos Anjos. Ever since Dos Anjos made the move to Welterweight, he’s been a force. He’s defeated  Tarec Saffiedine and Neil Magny since moving up a weight class. Robbie Lawler is, of course, a beat and has competed with the sport’s elite for years. Richardo Lamas will be meeting Josh Emmet and Santiago Ponzinibbio meets Mike Perry as well.

It’s a great card and this video gives a good look at their training ahead of Saturday’s event.
