The Flyweights Battle for Acceptance as Main Event for UFC on Fox 6
(mmaweekly.com)
Mixed martial arts fighters are always fighting for something bigger than just the other guy or girl standing across the cage from them. For years following Senator John McCain’s infamous reference to the UFC as “human cockfighting”, competitors and promotions alike had to battle the perception that MMA was not much more than legalized bar fights complete with bloody battles and little in the way of rules. The culture of the sport started to change as more and more state athletic commissions began approving MMA, so long as they followed a strict code of regulations like any other competition. It was still an uphill battle until the UFC really got a stranglehold of fans following the initial run of the Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV that showcased fighters both in and out of the cage in a reality show format. MMA still battles for recognition today, but the sport is much more widely accepted now than it ever was before, and as the UFC moved onto Fox television in late 2011, just about everybody took notice that this mixed martial arts thing wasn’t going away...

Donald Cerrone goes rock climbing a week before UFC On Fox 6, Dana White not amused
(bloodyelbow.com)
UFC Lightweight has a big fight just around the corner against Anthony Pettis at UFC On Fox 6. The contest was originally supposed to go down in the summer of 2012, but an injury and subsequent surgery for Pettis left Cerrone fighting teammate Melvin Guillard at UFC 150 instead. Now, with the fight he's been waiting for coming up in only a week, Cerrone decided to go rock climbing. UFC president Dana White didn't seem happy with his decision.

Michael Bisping tells Vitor Belfort "There's no Jesus" at UFC On FX 7 weigh-ins
(bloodyelbow.com)
Leading up to his main event fight tonight, Michael Bisping has been doing more than his fair share of trash talking. The tension between him and Vitor Belfort seemed to peak on Thursday when the two had an intense staredown after the pre-fight press conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Bisping followed that up by saying Vitor was suffering from "roid rage" and called him a "hooligan". That wasn't enough for "The Count," though. When the Middleweights faced off again at the UFC On FX 7 weigh-ins on Friday, Bisping capped off a series of verbal jabs by telling Belfort, "There's no Jesus." Obviously, this was meant as a pretty personal attack on Vitor, who's always been very vocal about the importance of his faith in his life.
