The UFC always ups its game for Independence Day weekend. This year is no exception.
Despite what seems these days to be the inevitable angel's share—injuries, drug test failures and the dilution of talent because of a new abundance of events—exacting its cut off the top, UFC 175 still looks and feels like a glamorous card.
