It’s been seven long years since the Ultimate Fighting Championship brought the Octagon to Minneapolis. Fortunately, much like rap-rock music and Affliction T-shirts, dudes getting punched in the face never goes out of style. This Saturday night, former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos will go toe-to-toe with Franics “the Predator” Ngannou at the main event of UFC Fight Night in what is likely to decide who gets the next crack at the current UFC champ. The 13-fight card also includes superstars like Joseph Benavidez, Demian Maia, and Mankato’s own Dan “the Hitman” Moret. Splitting his time between Minnesota Martial Arts Academy and the MMA Lab in Arizona, Moret is a submission specialist, with eight tap-outs in his 13 career victories. He’ll meet Jared “Flash” Gordon in a lightweight bout on the preliminary portion of the card, which will be broadcast live on ESPN. Seeing as how the last time UFC came to town we were in the first term of the Obama era, this could be your last chance to bring the pain and witness a hometown brawl in the Octagon for quite some time.
