We’re almost there: UFC 163 with what will surely be a wild crowd in Rio cheering on Jose Aldo and jeering the Korean Zombie, as Lyoto Machida looks to fend off the superhero-like frame of Phil Davis. Today the weigh-ins went down without incident, and these top two fights are pumping me up for tomorrow!
Hopefully we see some awesome fights. I don’t see how we can’t, there’s something about Rio and the crowd that brings out the awesomeness in every fight.
