Like a desperate man slouching through the desert, MMA fans look upon UFC on FX 8—coming to you live from Jaragua do Sul, Brazil, this Saturday—as a life-giving pool in the middle of a dry and barren wasteland. Never mind if it's just a scummy cesspuddle. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, bro!
But as we drink in the majesty of this event nearly three full weeks in the making, let us also prime our pumps with a full, eh, primer. What follows are information capsules and predictions for every single fight, from Facebook to finale, including details on how and when to watch.
Please enjoy, and hey, don't drink too fast out there, as you will get stomach cramps.
