With UFC 154 in Montreal less than two weeks away, we catch up with welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre as he goes through the final stages of his training camp. He wasn’t the only fighter around as we also chat with Patrick Cote, Mark Bocek, John Makdessi, Ivan Menjivar and Francis Carmont, as they all prepare for their bouts at the Bell Centre.
We go “Inside the Octagon” for all the latest headlines as a number of marquee matchups are announced by the UFC for early 2013, including a super-fight set for Super Bowl weekend and another that could be closer to becoming a reality than ever before.
The UFC makes their debut in China this weekend featuring a main event between former middleweight champion Rich Franklin and former Strikeforce champion Cung Le. We take a closer look at this 185-pound matchup, plus preview the rest of the card set for the Venetian Resort Hotel in Macau.
