It's Fight Week! UFC returns to Toronto, Ontario in what promises to be an exciting night of fighting. Torque is proud to be in the corner with Urijah Fabers team Alpha Male fighter Joseph Benavidez. UFC introduced the Flyweight division this year and the title is up for grabs. Joseph faces Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson (15-2-1). With the belt up for grabs you can rest assured that both fighters are going to come out swinging and ready for a fight.
Benavidez (16-2)has a 4 fight win streak going and is looking to make his mark in UFC history as the first ever 125 flyweight champion. He has eight wins by submission, four by knockout, Submitted Junya Kudo in DREAM fight in Japan in 2008. His only pro losses have come to UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz.
UFC has had a plague of injuries and cancellations. After the disappointing cancellation of #151 UFC put together a great card with 2 title fights and a group of fighters that should put on a great show. Light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones is set to defend his belt against the aging former champ, Vitor Belfort. It's no secret that Belfort is the heavy underdog, taking the fight on short notice and moving up a weight class after an injury to Dan Henderson forced the cancellation of UFC 151. Anything can happen in the UFC, and old champ vs new champ is always exciting.
