– The fourth installment of UFC 201: Embedded just might be one of the more interesting ones yet. The series, which gives you behind-the-scenes footage from camps and the lives of fighters, includes an interesting confrontation between Matt Brown and Rose Namajunas.
Brown, who faces Jake Ellenberger on Saturday night, is afraid of dogs. Namajunas, who meets Karolina Kowalkiewicz in the co-main event, forces Brown to confront his fears.
– As part of the UFC’s return to England in October, Vitor Belfort and Gegard Mousasi will meet at UFC 204. The middleweight bout is likely to serve as the co-main event to Dan Henderson-Michael Bisping for the middleweight belt.
Belfort (25-12) is a former UFC champion, but is coming off a loss to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza. He is 7-3 in his last 10 fights overall. Mousasi (39-6-2) is an ex-Strikeforce champion who has won two in a row and is 4-1 over his last five.
UFC 204 takes place October 8 from Manchester, England and is expected to air on pay-per-view, FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
– Kevin Ferguson, Jr., the son of the late “Kimbo Slice,” will make his Bellator debut next month at Bellator 160. “Baby Slice” will take on an opponent yet to be announced at the August 26 card from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
Ferguson, Jr. is 0-0 in his pro career, having scored a victory in his amateur debut this past March. His father passed away earlier this year after heart failure.
Bellator 160 features Benson Henderson vs. Patricio “Pitbull” Freire and airs live on Spike TV.
