Ladies and gents, UFC 95’s main card is solidified. These fights will take place on Feb 21 in London, England at the O2 Arena, and air via Spike TV. That’s right, no pay-per-view costs and much needed reprieve from laying down 45 bones several times in the last few weeks.
Noteable talking points at UFC 95 include Diego Sanchez making his lightweight debut against 155 lbs. contender Joe “Daddy” Stevenson, and Nate Marquardt looking to best Wilson Gouveia to move in close for a title shot in the middleweight division.
