MusclePharm To Have Strong Presence at UFC on Fox 9
In just two days, Ultimate Fighting Championship will celebrate its 9th event on FOX, headlined by the Flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez. UFC on FOX 9 features a top to bottom stacked fightcard, with some of the best athletes on the roster.
Long-time VFD Sports Marketing exclusive client, MusclePharm, will have a strong presence inside the Octagon on Saturday night. Five fighters – Abel Trujillo, Sam Stout, Scott Jorgensen, Nick Lentz and Joe Lauzon will represent MP throughout the card, from FOX Sports 1 (preliminary action) to the main portion of the night LIVE on FOX.
On FOX Sports 1, Abel Trujillo will face Roger Bowling in a rematch from UFC Fight Night 27, MMA veteran and fan-favorite Sam “Hands of Stone” Stout will go to war against TUF alumni Cody McKenzie, and former Bantamweight title challenger Scott Jorgensen will test his skills against Octagon newcomer Zack Makovsky.
In the main card action of the night, “Mr. Fight of the Night” Joe Lauzon will look to move up the Lightweight ladder against Mac Danzig. Both fighters have made a name for themselves in the UFC, as fans can safely expect a non-stop MMA action from this bout.
Finally, Nick Lentz, who’s currently on a three-fight win streak in the UFC, will fight Chad Mendes for a spot in line for a shot at the title. Lentz is currently considered one of the top fighters in his weight class (Featherweight), and will be looking to make a serious statement against Chad Mendes.
UFC on FOX 9 takes place on December 14, 2013 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.
