I have to admit, I was one of the guys complaining that the UFC was putting on a few too many shows.
It seemed like every other week I was gearing up for a new event. I mean c'mon Mr. White, there are only so many one-man parties I can throw. Only so many ribs I could eat (final tally was 54). I was a little burnt out.
Then UFC 151 was cancelled.
I went from needing a break to needing a fix. Fight withdrawal hit me hard. Not seeing people punched in the face really took its toll on my psyche.
So I was rather happy when I realized this week is UFC 152. And while the whole Jon Jones controversy has thrown a blanket over everyone's collective excitement for this card, I still believe there are a few gems that could make the night worth the wait.
Let's explore them, shall we?
