UFC 171: Tweets and Behind the Scenes

Check out the behind the scenes action from the UFC's visit to Dallas...
THE TOUGHEST FIGHTER OF ALL

While the warriors of the UFC did their thing in the Octagon, a fellow fighter was in attendance at American Airlines Center, as Oregon’s Jake Stoneking took in his first UFC event. Stoneking, 19, has been courageously battling brain cancer, and after Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta found out that seeing a live UFC event was on the teenager’s bucket list, he put the wheels in motion for Jake to scratch that item off the list. And as you’ll see below, he got to do more than see UFC 171. Keep fighting Jake!

PEVERLEY RETURNS, AND HE’S GOT BACKUP

He also met up with UFC stars Phil Davis and Uriah Hall, who gave Peverley their best wishes for a quick recovery and a return to the ice next season.
