UFC on FX 8 isn't exactly the most anticipated fight card of the year.
It's not even the most anticipated card of May, if we're getting right down to it. That honor goes to next weekend's UFC 160 event in Las Vegas; it features a heavyweight title fight that, even if it feels eerily familiar (because we saw it one year ago, also in Las Vegas), will still appeal to the masses far more than anything we'll see this weekend on FX.
That being said, I'm excited for UFC on FX 8. More specifically, I'm excited for Vitor Belfort vs. Luke Rockhold. I noted yesterday that I had some personal misgivings about Belfort's TRT usage and TRT's place in the grand scheme of sporting events, but that doesn't mean I'm not excited about the fight itself.
Because, when it comes right down to it, Belfort vs. Rockhold is an important fight with plenty at stake for the middleweight division.
There are other interesting things on the card, too, and today we're going to take a look at two of them. Let's get started.
