Melendez 1-on-1, Henderson Trains Fitzgerald and Mein’s Motivator on UFC ULTIMATE INSIDER
LOS ANGELES, CA – On this week’s UFC TONIGHT, UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz joins Kenny Florian as a guest host and the two break down the stacked FOX UFC SATURDAY card, including the lightweight championship fight between Benson Henderson and Gilbert Melendez. Plus, find out why Florian may be rooting against Frank Mir and Nate Diaz (hint, it involves his submission wins record).
Plus, Jon Jones opens up about everything including why he doesn’t think Chael Sonnen has a “Champion’s Soul”, why his relationship with Rashad Evans has changed for the better, why Melvin Guillard is no longer accepted in Jackson’s MMA, and much more.
This week on UFC ULTIMATE INSIDER, Jordan Mein enters the Octagon for only the second time on April 20, but he will do so on the sport’s biggest platform as the opening fight on FOX UFC Saturday. The 23 year old looks to make the most of this opportunity with the help of his father who has trained the latest Canadian prodigy for the past decade. Then, Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez stops by the studio for a candid one-on-one interview with host Jon Anik as they discuss why he deserves to get a title shot in his UFC debut and what he tools brings to the Octagon to dethrone champion Benson Henderson in their April 20 fight.
Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has developed a bond with the UFC’s lightweight champ and fellow Phoenix resident Benson Henderson. See how their emerging friendship translates to an MMA workout – which is notoriously the hardest in all of pro sports.
