It's a bit of a quieter week in the sport, but there's still lots going on. For starters, we're coming off of Demian Maia's insane win over Carlos Condit at UFC on FOX 21. Maia's run through welterweight continues in incredible fashion, putting him at the doorstep of a title shot. Paige VanZant, Anthony Pettis and Jim Miller (albeit controversially) earned wins as well.

By the way, we're also coming off of a bizarre if interesting Bellator 160.

We're also neck deck into the UFC's attempt to sell us the alleged human interest story involving Phil Brooks (CM Punk). In viewing the larger fan base's response to this, I've noticed some growing sympathies with only a little hardening of opinion against him. Like it or not (and I don't), the UFC's push to sell this as a story of a guy just trying to pursue his dreams appears to be working.

And the UFC train rolls on, this time with UFC Fight Night 93. The main event is great and main card decent. The rest of it is a mix of legit UFC talent and regional-level MMA.
