Morning Report: MMA's Hectic Weekend, Pros Predict Jones vs. Evans

Mar 19, 2012 - Another week rolls by without a major UFC event, and another MMA-packed weekend cuddles up and fills the void.

Besides the usual offerings from Bellator and The Ultimate Fighter, we saw a slew of old-school PRIDE names this weekend. Guys like Aleks Emelianenko, Jeff Monson and John Alessio hit the stage, and even good old Gabe Ruediger got in on the action. Add in the NCAA wrestling championships and the latest visual evidence in the to-touch-gloves-or-not debate, and that's a pretty full plate we've got on the table. So if you missed any of it, or you just want to see Rashad Evans accuse Jon Jones of dressing up in drag, catch up with today's edition of the Morning Report.
