The only time you'll see your favorite UFC fighters doing their man-groping dirty work other than Fight Night itself is during their open workouts.
Although Baymax would probably rate the level of pain in these exchanges as zero, these seemingly choreographed sparring sessions still manage to pump up those watching it. Fighters, for their part, get the chance to strut their stuff, and possibly, for the last time, persuade non-believers to cheer for them.
FHM was present at the recent UFC Fight Night 66 Open Workouts, the company's first time in the country and boy did it just heighten the anticipation for Saturday's much-awaited lineup!
Here's what you missed:
Color-caster Boom Gonzales did hosting duties for the event.
First up: the country's own Mark Muñoz, who will be having his last fight as a pro, against Luke Barnatt.
Seems like The Filipino Wrecking Machine wants to go out with a bang...
Last one for the team!
One of the co-headliner's, Cypriot Middleweight Costas Philippou:
Philippou's opponent, Gegard "The Armenian Assassin" Mousasi seems unfazed.
The event was held at the spacious Music Hall of SM Mall of Asia.
And last, but certainly not the least, the fighters from the first-ever UFC Fight Night Manila marquee bout:
Ranked No. 3 in the official UFC bantamweight rankings as of September last year, The California Kid, submission specialist Urijah Faber!
And finally, the man who stopped none other than UFC icon BJ Penn three times, The Answer, Frankie Edgar!
