All the fighters for the UFC on FOX: Fight Night 22 card, made weight at the early weigh-ins on Friday. The card is headlined by Paige Van Zant vs Michelle Waterson in a women’s strawweight bout. Or as I like to call it, ‘Dancing with the Karate Hottie’. After his beat down of WWE Superstar CM Punk, Mickey Gall called out Sage Northcutt. Northcutt normally fights in the 155 pound division, but looks to make an exception for Mr Gall. The 2 men will do battle at 170 pounds.
‘The California MAN’ Urijah Faber, is making his last MMA stand in his home town of Sacramento. Faber has openly stated that this fight with will be the last of his epic career. His retirement fight will be against Brad ‘One Punch Pickett’. Pickett always comes to scrap, so expect this fight between the 2 bantamweight stars to be a great one. Lastly, on the main card will be Alan Jouban vs ‘Platinum’ Mike Perry. The model vs the bad boy. Putting the always smooth Jouban against the smashing machine Perry, was some great matchmaking. The fight that will bring in the UFC ON FOX card should be eye candy for lovers of all things, violence.
