This past month was one of the busiest and biggest in the history of mixed martial arts. In total there were three events that stopped the fight world. The first was the long awaited match-up between to former middleweight champions, UFC 93: Franklin vs. Henderson. Also on the card was the return of Shogun and Coleman. Despite looking promising this card failed to live up to the hype. I could ramble on about how each match-up disappointed me in its own way or I could just link to the actual fight videos. You be the judge, how bad was UFC 93 in your mind?
Dan Henderson vs. Rich Franklin
Henderson looked to have controlled most of the fight with Franklin making a good comeback late in the third. The decision was fair and will place Henderson only one fight away from a rematch with Anderson Silva. That fight should be a lot more competitive than their first.
The atmosphere inside the O2 arena looked amazing. Too bad the fights did live up the fans enthusiasm. Below is a video of Shoguns entrance. Rua came to the song; Sail by Armin Van Buuren.
