Finally - what we've all been waiting for. The UFC is coming to BALTIMORE!!! And we've got to thank more than just Dana White. We've got to thank John Rallo, owner of Shogun Fights. John Rallo relentlessly pursued Maryland's sanctioning body to legalize MMA, and in the end, he made it happen. He's given the avenue to create local stars like Binky Jones and Dan Root. Six years later, John Rallo brings to us SHOGUN FIGHTS X. Without John Rallo, there simply would be no UFC coming to Baltimore. So I urge the UFC fans who will sell out the Baltimore Arena to come back this summer for Shogun Fights! Until then, let's pack this arena and support MMA & Baltimore to fullest at UFC 172.
From UFC.com, we have most of the official fight card for UFC 172 at the Baltimore Arena (formerly 1st Mariner) on April 26th
In the headliner - Jone Bones Jones (19-1) takes on Glover Teixeira (22-2) for the Light Heavyweight title. Jones is coming off a tough win over Alexander Gustafsson, who took the champ the distance with outstanding striking. Teixeira is undefeated in the UFC and coming off a KO of the night win over Ryan Bader. Teixeira has never even been taken down in the octagon. Can Bones take him down or will he keep the fight standing?
Mr. Wonderful Phil Davis (12-1-(1)) welcomes Anthony Rumble Johnson (16-4) back to the UFC. Mr. Wonderful is coming off a unanimous decision win over former champ, Lyoto Machita, while Johnson is coming off a devastating KO of Mike Kyle at WSOF 8 just last month.
