Countdown To UFC 164: Henderson Vs. Pettis

Countdown To UFC 164: Henderson Vs. Pettis


UFC 164 takes to the Octagon in 4 days and with it, main-card and co-main events, that look to answer questions that have been wondered about for years.

The main-card presents the (3 years old) question of whether or not Anthony Pettis is a truly better fighter then the current lightweight champion, Benson Henderson.

The co-main seeks to answer a much older debate and that’s the question of who’s a better fighter, particularly grappler, between Frank Mir & Josh Barnett.

As a fight fan I find it impossible to watch “Countdown” and not get stoked for a fight.

Of all the promotion that the UFC does, for me, this is by far the best thing they do. They excel at this type of marketing and they know how to sell MMA fans on the idea of a fight. In the case of “Countdown to UFC 164”, the promotion is in its usual good form.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line. Whether or not you think you can or you can't, you are right. Fast / Good / Cheap...pick 2. Better an honest word to the ear, than a stiff punch to the jaw; ego kills. A hall passed through with the doors open, is a...?

    Mir vs Josh fight is gonna steal the show.

    jesus. how annoying to come here and 2 ads and 2 videos start auto play with the sound out of control

    • Brian Cox

      Yeah, sorry about that, but we can blame the UFC for that one. Embedded code should not be allowed to auto-play.

      • InfiniteEnigma

        right on. didnt know if it was your part or what having the auto play. still watched em , thanks for the post.

        • Brian Cox

          No, I feel you on this issue Infinite. It's so freaking annoying when a page loads and you get hit with not just one stream, but multiple. It's very annoying. I don't know why the UFC would embed the code as auto-play or for that matter, cut the Countdown into 2 parts.

          It really doesn't make any sense.

          At any rate, should be a great card and I'm really looking forward to Mir / Barnett. It should be a great fight and you can tell, they really don't like one another. That's always nice in a fight. :-)
