UFC bantamweight Reuben Duran was successful in his last bout in the Octagon, defeating Francisco Rivera by rear naked choke in June, but now faces an even tougher battle.

Duran suffered a knee injury recently and had to undergo surgery to repair the damage.

Now as Duran gets ready for rehab and recover, he will present a weekly video blog exclusively for MMAWeekly.com.

In this latest edition, Duran visits the LA Fitness Expo and is joined along on the adventure by fellow UFC fighter Anthony Njokuani.
