There's a lot going on this weekend. Besides UFC 104 on pay-per-view Saturday night, Maryland will host its first-ever pro MMA show with Shogun Fights. The man behind the event is John Rallo, a Renzo black belt and the driving force that got the sport legalized down there, and it looks like local studs Binky Jones, Rick Desper and New Jersey featherweight powerhouse Steve DeAngelis get to be first up to bat.
Also this weekend is the World MMA Expo at the Jacob Javitz Center in Manhattan. MMA Journalist will be liveblogging that one.
Asylum Fight League XX is on Saturday night at the Trump Marina in Atlantic City. The AFL is always a good night of fighting, but as cloning technology isn't quite up to par yet, MMA Journalist is going to miss it.
