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.

David Castillo with the customary three things you need to know about a couple of LHW prospects who have fallen modestly, and are now rising modestly in Phil Davis vs. Ryan Bader. The old saying in prizefighting goes something like, "every great fighter still has one great fight left in him". It's worth amending when it comes to prospects; every great prospect still has one great habit worth learning in him, if just for a single night. It doesn't have the same ring to it, but it's a fitting phil read news >>

David Castillo does the usual 'three things you need to know' breakdown for this weekend's card in Sweden that is light on big names, but heavy on lengthy names that promise violence, and potentially a lot of finishes. Somehow this card hasn't been promoted as UFC Fight Night: Conor McGregor Hangover on FOX, but I guess even Zuffa's hype machine has limits. While the names for this January 24th undercard in Sweden might be too foreign for a casual fan's taste, don't let the lack of typical conso read news >>
