In the interest of speaking my mind a bit I feel a need to throw it out there that I am incredibly surprised and disappointed by the lack of promotion leading up to the recent Fight Night cards on Fox Sports 1. I know countless “big” MMA fans that were completely unaware of the Condit/Kampmann and last night’s Bader/Teixeira cards taking place. One would think the UFC would...
