Last time when the UFC visited Calgary at UFC 149 back in 2012, the card became a night to forget for being one of the most cursed cards in the history of the sport. UFC President Dana White promised to put up a stacked card when the UFC visits Calgary again and he didn’t disappoint.
UFC on Fox 30 is probably one of the most stacked non pay-per-view card ever. The main event kicks off with sort of a ‘silent before the storstorm’ lightweight match up as native Olivier Aubin-Mercier takes on #13 ranked Alexander Hernandez.
Another lightweight, former interim title challenger Kevin ‘The MoTown Phenom’ Lee has been addressing the underrated drawback of MMA being the weight cut. The #5 demands multiple weight classes especially a 165 pound one. Lee believes the problem of fighters draining themselves to make a class is increasing upto a limit where a fighter can potentially die.
Aubin-Mercier addressed the division in his own humorous way. Aubin-Mercier believes two of the five double champs of the sport in Conor ‘The Notorious’ McGregor and Georges ‘Rush’ St-Pierre should fight for the 165 pound belt. (Twitter):
UFC should do GSP vs Conor in 165lb.
Winner become the champ champ champ. https://t.co/cD9HS1Hhfm
