During a quiet weekend on the regional circuit, UFC vets went 0-2.

Nevertheless, a pair of mainstay organizations played host to some familiar names... At Friday's Legacy FC 38 out of Texas, Anthony Njokuani (17-10, 3-5 UFC, 4-3 WEC), fighting outside the Zuffa umbrella for the first time in nearly seven years, looked to rebound from the two-figh read news >>

The tail end of November has yielded up a hot streak, though, with former UFC fighters going nigh-undefeated these last two weeks. First, some late-brea read news >>
