UFC Fight Night 35 Main Card Preview: Costa Philippou

UFC Fight Night 35 Main Card Preview: Costa Philippou

Costa Philippou gets his day in the sun when he headlines UFC Fight Night 35 opposite Luke Rockhold on January 15. But there was a time when the middleweight striker had to toil away in the minor leagues, honing his craft in events that more or less went by unknown to the general public. Here then is one of them: Ring of Combat 21, which took place on September 12, 2008 at the Tropicana Resort & Casino in Atlantic City. Opposite Philippou was Brendan Barrett, an IFL veteran who’s long been considered a top-tier fighter in the Northeast fight circuit (at the time of this writing, Barrett is the ROC heavyweight champ).
