Chances are UFC middleweights Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman weren’t able to hit the grill or down a few frosty beverages a week ago on the Fourth of July like most of their friends, family, and fans did, as both men were busy preparing for their headlining tilt tomorrow night at UFC on Fuel 4 where the winner will emerge as a legitimate contender to Anderson Silva ’s divisional crown.
During the build up to UFC 148 the UFC has opted to have Matt Serra visit a few of the featured fighters’ camps to give fans a glimpse of what it takes to be a high-level Mixed Martial Artist.

Rebellion Media looking for new talent
Fans and media are quick to make their opinions heard when a decision even bordering on controversy unfolds in Mixed Martial Arts. However, little discussion surfaced in relation to this past Friday night’s main event fight between Clay Guida-Gray Maynard at UFC on FX 4
28-year old UFC welterweight Carlos Condit is the latest fighter to express concern about the increased presence of testosterone replacement therapy in Mixed Martial Arts. Though completely legal as long as levels are regulated and a doctor has prescribed the treatment, many argue TRT gives athletes an advantage by allowing them to continue training/competing at a high level despite the natural effects of getting older.
Whoever came up with the famous saying about the difficulty in teaching “an old dog new tricks” clearly wasn’t considering Mixed Martial Arts at the time. While Wanderlei Silva ’s reputation may be one involving a singular focus on stand-up, he’s also been training to fight more intelligently than in the past while changing up camps including a recent stint at Team Blackhouse alongside Lyoto Machida and Fabricio Werdum . Given his vast amount of experience, when Rich Franklin fights Silva next Saturday night at UFC 147 he won’t make the mistake of thinking he’ll be facing the same “Axe Murderer” as he did in 2009 en route to a Unanimous Decision win or even the same competitor he’s watched tape of

When UFC 148 rolls around in early July the headlining tilt between middleweight champion Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen will get the bulk of the public’s attention, but a far more significant moment than any single fight will also be taking place on the same card as iconic Mixed Martial Artist Tito Ortiz enters the Octagon for the final time as a competitor. Ortiz has spent his entire fifteen-year career under the UFC banner where he was a longtime title-holder and one of the company’s biggest draws. When the former “Huntington Beach Bad Boy” steps foot inside the infamous eight-sided cage he will also do so as a member of the UFC’s Hall of Fame

Things kick off at 6:30 PM EST
It’s often easy to forget fighters are people too. Perhaps it’s because Mixed Martial Artists are inherently tough or because cameras tend to focus on the winners’ reactions, but the reality is every single man and woman who takes to the ring is not so different from the folks sitting in the seats outside of their chosen profession.
