WINNIPEG – The main-card fighters for Saturday’s UFC on FOX 26 card got together to meet the media today. Then they got face to face.
Things were mostly civil. But Mike Perry (11-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) had a few things to say to his welterweight opponent, Santiago Ponzinibbio (25-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC). Perry trash-talked the silent-but-smiling Brazilian and gave a big yell and a few throat slashes for good measure.
Check out the highlights from the UFC on FOX 26 face-offs in the video above, which also includes main-event welterweights Robbie Lawler (28-11 MMA, 13-5 UFC) vs. Rafael dos Anjos (27-9 MMA, 16-7 UFC); co-main event featherweights Josh Emmett (12-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) and Ricardo Lamas (18-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC); and Misha Cirkunov (13-3 MMA, 4-1 UFC) and Glover Teixeira (26-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC), who open the main card in a light heavyweight bout.
