Last night the UFC invaded the Bell Center in Montreal and welcomed UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre back to the Octagon. The champion survived a serious scare from interim champion Carlos Condit in the third round en route to winning his first fight since April of last year. The two were awarded the Fight of the Night bonus for their five round war and there is no question, GSP’s knee is up to snuff.
Lex McMahon the President of Alchemist Management will join the show tonight to discuss the fallout from the Alessio Sakara-Patrick Cote bout that ended in extreme controversy. Sakara had Cote rocked and on his knees, but landed blows to the back of his head which caused the referee to stop the fight. Instead of warning Sakara or declaring the fight a no-contest, Dan Miragliotta awarded Cote a victory by disqualification. McMahon will discuss what steps he and his team will take to try and rectify the situation.
Join hosts Bryan Levick & Mitch Ciccarelli as they will discuss last night’s fights with a trio of MMA personalities. This special Sunday episode will begin at 7pm eastern.
