Last weekend the UFC hit two fight towns with two separate events on the same day.
UFC Fight Night Stockholm went down first, from Sweden, and featured an epic battle between Rick Story and Gunnar Nelson in the nights headliner.
Across the pond, in Canada, the UFC returned to action with UFC Fight Night Halifax. In the evening’s main event, Rory MacDonald made his case for UFC gold in shutting down Tarec Saffiedine.
Here’s the immediate reactions from the weekend’s victorious fighters.
Most common statement heard after a fight, "I hope the other guy looks worse!" (With disgusted look on face)
