– UFC fighter Dennis Bermudez competes this weekend at UFC Fight Night 92 vs. Rony Jason in the co-main event. So, what better way to honor Bermudez than for the crew of “UFC Tonight” to attempt to break his lemon juice world record.
Daniel Cormier and Kenny Florian each attempted the feat during Wednesday night’s edition of the show on FOX Sports 1. Bermudez put his name in the Guinness World Record’s by drinking a liter of lemon juice in 22.75 seconds.
– If, and it still remains a big if, Tyron Woodley’s first title defense comes against Georges St-Pierre, the reigning UFC welterweight champion will likely enter the Octagon as an underdog. According to numbers released by Bovada recently, GSP would be a -150 favorite over Woodley, who is coming in as a +120 underdog.
The return of St-Pierre to action remains cloudy at best. The former champion retired following a title defense over Johny Hendricks in 2013 and has only hinted at a return to the fight game since. GSP went 19-2 over 21 UFC fights and is 23-2 overall in his career.
Woodley, meanwhile, captured the title this past weekend at UFC 201 when he knocked out Robbie Lawler in the first round. The former University of Missouri wrestling standout stated on “UFC Tonight” Wednesday that “I’d take Georges (over anybody else). He’s a tougher fight. He has the best wrestling in MMA. To say I’m the best welterweight, if I haven’t fought GSP, I couldn’t say that. Just the same way he wanted to fight Matt Hughes to prove himself. And it’s the most money. So I kill two birds with one stone.”
– According to a report by UOL out of Brazil, reigning Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino will compete next inside the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 95 in Brazil. Justino (16-1) would face Lina Akhtar Lansberg (6-1) if the report is true.
Justino, who has stated that she still wants to defend her Invicta belt, made her Octagon debut earlier this year with a catchweight victory over Leslie Smith at UFC 198. The Brazilian would likely be part of the FOX Sports 1 main card.
Lansberg has scored six consecutive wins since losing her debut, including four via knockout.
