UFC Fight Night 35, which is set for January 15 and will air on FOX Sports 1, will see middleweight studs Costa Philippou and Luke Rockhold clash in the main event. It promises to be a nice, high-level battle between two skilled warriors. But while everyone knows Rockhold from his accomplishments – he was the last Strikeforce 185-pound champ before the organization was bought out by the UFC – Philippou is mostly known for his steady climb up the food chain in the Octagon. There’s a lot more to his resume than that!
Here, then, is a video of perhaps his greatest minor league fight, which went down at Ring of Combat 34 on February 4, 2011 in Atlantic City, N.J. His opponent was none other than TUF superstar Uriah Hall. Enjoy!
