Frankie Edgar, UFC On FOX 6, Josh Barnett: The Morning News Roundup – 1.28.13

Another week, another big selection of MMA to choose from. On Tuesday, another installment of the Ultimate Fighter will grace our TV screens, on Thursday there’s another Bellator MMA event, and on Saturday night, UFC 156 hits pay-per-view. It’s a definitely a good time to be a fight fan… and a miserable time to be a hippy pacifist. Some news!

– Frankie Edgar is a nice guy. He’s also a killer. Don’t think one precludes the other.

– UFC on FOX 6’s preliminary ratings look strong. Real strong. Considering how much butt Bellator has been kicking ratings-wise, does this signal an upward trend for the sport in general?

– What’s going on with Josh Barnett? Will we see him in the Octagon again or not?

– As per MMAJunkie, the UFC was ridiculously close to getting Fedor Emelianenko to fight Brock Lesnar. Now comes the news that the UFC is getting close to having a show in Russia as well. That all sounds awesome to me.
