Reyes will take on Mike Perry in the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 116. "And I'm not one of the best, I am the best, and I deal with it the best". Perhaps Rockhold began to feel what some of us felt: that Bisping would rather retire as champion than face Rockhold again. Rockhold answered his aggression with some of his own in the second ground, where he grounded, mounted and eventually finished the Renzo Gracie-trained Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. I'll be ready for November. "God willing, it did, and I jumped on the opportunity as soon as it presented itself".

Ahead of Saturday's live PRELIMS, Fight Network will live broadcast the UFC FIGHT NIGHT PREFIGHT SHOW, featuring coverage from Pittsburgh from the industry's premier mixed martial arts analysts.

The former UFC middleweight champion had a point to prove in his first fight since losing his belt to Michael Bisping in June 2016 - he only has eyes for that coveted golden strap. Just over a minute in, Perry hit a knee that took the wind out of Reyes, ending the fight in 1:19. And Branch caught him with a few solid punches, solid enough that it was easy (in the moment) to see a big-time upset unfolding before our eyes.

He then talked about why he's comfortable moving up in weight in such a short time. "'GSP', I don't know what I need to do", he said, glaring into the camera.

Arantes and Sanders were set to compete on the Fox Sports 1 portion of the preliminary card. Hall was knocked down and bloodied by Jotko in the first, stopped him with an overhand right in the second round. "Mindset is everything and if you don't believe it, you shouldn't be here". He'll scowl and glower over a loss that he won't get to revenge. You better back out, get out of this thing while you still can. "This is my fight". Since then, it's been a waiting game filled with injuries, rumors, and more waiting.

But first, Combate Americas presents a nine-bout fight card for Mexican Independence Day tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET from Redlands, Calif., headlined by a featherweight matchup between Jose "Froggy" Estrada (3-1) and Izic "Lionheart" Fernandez (2-3). "The kudos go to my opponent, who took the fight on three days' notice". Don't embarrass yourself 'GSP', just back out.
