This Friday night, June 8th marks the arrival of the UFC in Florida for ‘UFC On FX 3’ and we’ve got the full fight card for you.
Headline duties for this one will be undertaken by a flyweight semi-final rematch between Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson and Ian ‘Uncle Creepy’ McCall. Johnson was originally announced as having won their previous encounter at ‘UFC on FX 2’, but later a judges error was uncovered which meant that the fight was in fact a draw and should have gone to a fourth ‘sudden victory’ round.
A rather embarrassed Dana White then had to tell ‘Mighty Mouse’ that he hadn’t won after all, and a rematch was quickly arranged. Overall it was an unfortunate situation, but we benefit from it as we get to see these two well matched competitors go at it hammer-and-tongs for a second time in the Octagon.
Co-main event status is awarded to Charlie Brenneman who’ll provide a solid test for an exciting young Brazilian fighter by the name of Erick Silva who’s showed a great deal of promise with his performances in the UFC so far.
Two tough MMA veterans who are no strangers to good scrap are Josh Neer and Mike Pyle who’ll also lock horns on the main card.
Finally, former WEC bantamweight champion Eddie Wineland takes on former No.1 contender Scott Jorgensen as they both look to bounce back from a recent loss.
