UFC Austin Fight by Fight

DONALD CERRONE VS YANCY MEDEIROSIf one thing is consistent when it comes to Donald Cerrone, it’s that it’s impossible to get a read on where his head is at before a fight. He’s always the “I’ll fight anyone, anywhere, anytime” guy, even as he brings a three-fight losing streak into Sunday’s main event.

And Vick, 8-1 in the UFC and with a three-fight winning streak heading into his Sunday bout with Francisco Trinaldo, believes he is right on schedule.“I truly think this year I’m going to be a world champion,” he said. “No matter what happens, and it may be seem unlikely to the average person, but destiny will make a way for me to get my world title shot and b … Read the Full Article Here

Court McGee to be honored by Utah Government today

It was the call no one wants to get, and that was especially true for Court McGee.“It was a detective, saying, ‘We need you to call us back.’” “I hadn’t received that call in a long time,” said McGee, whose voyage through the world of drug addiction had him on the local police department’s rolodex for a while. But that was years in the past. McGee was sober, he was a UFC fighter that had just won The Ultimate Fighter, and he had moved on.“I kind of freaked out a little bit,” he said before turning to his wife, Chelsea.“Honey, what d … Read the Full Article Here
