UFC Norfolk Delivered Despite Lack of Star Power
UFC Norfolk’s main card did not see a single third round. All 5 of the fights ended before the 2-minute mark of the second round. Which was quite amazing because the card seriously lacked star power on paper. Amanda Nunes will soon have a new dance partner in the 145lb women’s division and the UFC flyweight title will remain vacant. Despite the high paced action, there is still a lot of talk around the rumor mill. So, let us not waste any more time.
