October UFC News and Notes
The big news coming out of the UFC this week is that Jon Jones avoided jail time from his hit-and-run in April. Instead, he received 18 months probation. So when is Jones stepping back into the Octagon? We’re waiting just like you, but he’s definitely coming back and ready to retake his position as the top pound for pound MMA fighter in the world.
With the UFC’s even greater international expansion this year, the word is that it will continue in 2016 into Holland and Russia. The MMA and especially UFC frenzy is only growing as they enter and do amazing numbers in new markets.
Uriah Hall, looking to stack impressive wins and make his way up the middleweight ladder, will replace Michael Bisping against Robert Whittaker at UFC 193 in Melbourne, Australia. He really sent a tremor through the UFC with his TKO of Gegard Mousasi on short notice, and he’s going to try again. Check him out on the Ronda Rousey versus Holly Holm card on November 15.
