The days after a big event are usually pretty sad for an MMA fan: even if your favorite fighter won, you have to wait at least a week to watch some solid live fights again. August was supposed to be a month of non-stop fights with UFC 101, WEC 42, Affliction Trilogy, Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg, and UFC 102. One of those got cancelled and one of those got half-destroyed by bad luck, so the month become somewhat less action-packed. Fear not, for Zuffa has another fight on the way as they fight for global MMA domination and control of our thin wallets. UFC 103 will feature Rich Franklin vs. Vitor Belfort and Cro-Cop vs. Junior Dos Santos as co-main events. If that doesn't get you excited, what will?
