Friday night's head-to-head battle with the UFC and Bellator ended up showcasing two very different visions of mixed martial arts. It also set up a second go-around in November with those same differences. The UFC presented its typical Fight Night show. With so many shows, and so little time to promote the shows, the UFC almost comes across like something with a take-it-or-leave-it approach. We're putting on a show.

UFC had one of the most disastrous days before a pay-per-view in history on Friday. Yet, when Saturday was over, it seemed everyone was breathing a sigh of relief.

The moment John McCarthy jumped in to stop the Rafael dos Anjos vs. Benson Henderson fight on Saturday night in Tulsa, the UFC's lightweight championship picture was suddenly muddled up. Henderson (21-3) was in the Rich Franklin position during Anderson Silva's middleweight title reign, of being arguably the second-best fighter in the division behind champion Anthony Pettis, but not being in contention for a title shot. Pettis had beaten him twice, and did so quickly and decisively in their seco read news >>
