UFC Vegas 56 preview: Hard hitting heavyweights top the card
After a week off, the UFC isn’t exactly coming back with a bang. That isn’t to say the main event between Alexander Volkov and Jairzinho Rozenstruik is a bad fight.

UFC Vegas 56 prelims preview: Will the rise of Jeff Molina continue?
How do I define these prelims? While UFC Vegas 56 claims the top women’s MMA prospect and perhaps the most exciting flyweight prospect, the rest of the card feels like filler.
