I don't know how we got here, but we're just two days away from UFC 156 and the pay-per-view main card is intact.
No injuries. No drug test failures. Nothing. We're two days away from a card that, barring some kind of crazy thing happening (knock on wood), is going to go off the way the good Lord and Joe Silva intended.
That's saying something. After the year we had in 2012, any fight card happening as planned is a miracle. Not only that, but this is one hell of a fight card.
I spoke yesterday with Joseph Benavidez—who faces Ian McCall in the opening pay-per-view bout—and cornerman T.J. Dillashaw, and both of them are incredibly excited about the fight card. And that's coming from a guy who is fighting on the event.
In one of the coming slides, I'll tell you which fight Benavidez and Dillashaw are most excited about, but I'll also give you nine other reasons that you should watch UFC 156. Because, let's face it: You should. Without a doubt.
