It was the battle of the Ultimate Fighter coaches as the Ultimate Fighting Championship presented UFC 159, shown live in the early hours of this past Sunday morning on ESPN here in Britain.The show began with the prelims and the bantamweight encounter between Bryan Caraway and Johny Bedford.This was a pretty good fight. Caraway, who took the fight on six day’s notice, found a ***** in his man’s defensive armour early on, and with Bedford looking a little vulnerable against Caraway’s left it became his go to punch. Bedford also got in some good shots, although it wasn’t long before he began to display the scars of battle.As far as the ground game goes Caraway ruled that particular domain.

Jon Jones says Anderson Silva is still the greatest ever, letting the argument rest for a while.

Until they fight, which in my opinion, may never happen, the argument over the next few years will be Jon Jones vs. Anderson Silva. Over the last few years, I was convinced Anderson would have his way with Jones, but after watching Jones fill into a heavyweight frame and throw around Vitor and Chael around like kids, maybe Anderson wouldn’t fare so well against the 25-year-old...
