LOS ANGELES, CA – On this week’s UFC TONIGHT, hosts Kenny Florian and Chael Sonnen break down and make predictions for this weekend’s FOX UFC Saturday, including the flyweight championship between Demetrious Johnson and John Moraga.
Plus, Sonnen reveals details about a new contract and changes in his training camp. Insider Ariel Helwani discusses potential upcoming bouts in the featherweight division, as well as possible match-ups for Rashad Evans. Brittany Palmer gives us an all-access look at the UFC Fan Expo. Watch all those stories, plus more tonight.
This week on UFC ULTIMATE INSIDER, Phoenix native John Moraga was headed down a dead end when he discovered wrestling and found a purpose. Meet the coaches that transformed Moraga’s life as they recall the origin of the fast-rising flyweight title challenger. Elite welterweight Jake Ellenberger is focused on his showdown with Rory MacDonald, but he still finds time to have some fun in Southern California. We suited up with him for a day at the motocross track to burn off some steam during his intense training schedule.
In one of 2013’s more stunning moments, Liz Carmouche nearly finished Ronda Rousey in the first women’s fight in UFC history. While the former Marine was ultimately submitted by the champion, she is now back training in San Diego and as committed as ever to donning UFC gold. When Jessica Andrade enters the Octagon on July 27 against Carmouche, the Brazilian will do so as a decided underdog. We travel to Rio de Janeiro to witness her training camp and how long odds have never deterred her.
