"Behind yesterday's launch of UFC 180 in Mexico City in mid-November there has been a juggernaut in the planning and with Cain Velasquez as the UFC's heavyweight champion, indeed the first Mexican heavyweight champion, and a challenger in Spanish-speaking Fabricio Werdum, it created the perfect storm.

Dennis Bermudez vs Ricardo Lamas

Norman Parke vs Diego Sanchez

Kelvin Gastelum vs Jake Ellenberger"
