UFC 163: Aldo vs. Zombie: The Observer Picks



UFC 163

By Josh Nason

UFC 163 is about as buzzless a PPV card as you'll see all year with a fan favorite gunning for the 145-pound title, an interesting co-main event...and not much else. No full preview this week, but with five events in 31 days, you'll get your fill of us enough in August.
