The MMA Hour: UFC UK's Marshall Zelaznik, Ross Pearson Preview UFC 105

On this week's edition of The MMA Hour, we were first joined by the UFC's UK division president Marshall Zelaznik to talk about the organization's return to England for UFC 105 this Saturday night. Zelaznik discussed the UFC's expansion overseas, how many events will take place in Europe in 2010, and having Randy Couture fight in England for the first time.

Later in the show we were joined by the winner of ninth season of The Ultimate Fighter, Ross Pearson, who faces Aaron Riley at UFC 105. Pearson talked about leaving his job as a bricklayer to become a full-time MMA fighter and fighting inside the Octagon in front of his fellow countrymen for the first time. MDS and I also looked back to the Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers and looked ahead to Saturday night's event. Watch/listen to the show below.
