Dana White and the UFC have released the final fight card for UFC 82-Pride of a Champion, scheduled for March 1st, 2008 in Ohio.
We have some bad news for all the Andrei Arlovski and Josh Koscheck fans who were waiting a really long time to see them fight again. Unfortunately, they have been placed within the preliminary card, which means that there are possibilities that the UFC will not televise their bouts. Hopefully they’ll at least show the replay following the main fight card at least. We’ll just have to cross our fingers and hope they will.
UFC 82 features the middleweight unification title match between UFC’s champ Anderson Silva and PrideFC’s champ Dan Henderson. Evan Tanner is also set to make his long awaited UFC return as he’ll be ready to face the very tough Yushin Okami.
