UFC 117 Main Event Breakdown: Silva vs. Sonnen

By Brandon Blockinger This Saturday’s main event promises an impressive spectacle.

Haynesworth has yet to participate in a single practice during training camp.  The two-time All-Pro defensive tackle has twice failed his conditioning test and was forced to sit out.  Now the always-controversial Haynesworth has a swollen knee – most likely from the rigorous routine he has been forced into – keeping him off the field the last two days.
