Watch UFC Fight Night 112 Replay
This latest edition of UFC Fight Night 112 happens in Oklahoma City on Sunday, June 25. The UFC Fight Pass preliminary card starts at 5:30 p.m. ET, with the Fox Sports 2 prelim card beginning at 7 p.m. ET and the main card beginning on Fox Sports 1 at 9 p.m. ET. Fight Press writers Chris Huntemann and Kevin Wilson are here to obtain you ready for the action.
Just like that program on MTV from the mid-2000s that I’m sure nobody actually watched, the main event of the current edition of UFC Fight Night has a whole brand-new angle to it because somebody supposedly insulted somebody else’s mother.
Both Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee belonged of the horrible press conference the UFC placed on approximately a month or so earlier to promote its summer slate of battles. Noticeably missing from the presser were Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre. Their own legendary interview a couple of months prior saw Bisping act extremely drunk while he and GSP promoted their prepared bout that was eventually scrapped after St-Pierre said he would not be ready to eliminate up until later this year because of an injury he sustained while training.
Regardless, the other fighters who appeared to that interview recently were all doing their finest Conor McGregor impression and hurling insults at one another in an effort to create interest in their battles. Lee obviously made a remark directed at Chiesa’s mom, and the two taken part in fisticuffs and needed to be separated. Before, this was simply another nondescript Fight Night centerpiece between two lightweights planning to take the next steps in their respective careers. Now, there’s an entire brand-new buzz surrounding this battle, thanks to a joke right out of the schoolyard that would make Wilmer Valderrama proud.
However there’s more to the UFC Fight Night 112 card than just grade-school insults. Johny Hendricks seeks to keep the momentum entering his new weight class when he deals with Tim Boetsch in the co-headliner, and Felice Herrig continues her obvious profession renaissance by taking on the unbeaten Justine Kish in an appealing strawweight bout. Oh, and B.J. Penn continues his ongoing quest to remain relevant when he faces Dennis Siver.
