FOX’s Road to the Octagon special aired this weekend during prime FERTBAARRWL hours and it was a pretty sweet breakdown of the three big main card fights. Now the special is up on one of the UFC’s pseudo-official channels for all us internet dwellers to enjoy! Judge BJ Penn’s commitment leading into his bout with Rory MacDonald! Try to figure out of the duct tape holding Shogun together will survive his encounter with Alexander Gustafsson! Enjoy Benson Henderson’s adorable munchkin made human mother! And would a Diaz brother fight be complete without at least a little mean mugging? I think not.
