Dynamo defenders Bobby Boswell, Geoff Cameron, and Corey Ashe have always enjoyed watching Ultimate Fighting on television, but never before have they had the opportunity to step inside the dreaded Octagon.

That all changed Thursday afternoon, when Boswell, Cameron, and Ashe had the opportunity to meet and judge a kick-up contest between UFC fighters, Jose Aldo and Kenny Florian. Aldo and Florian will square off Saturday night in UFC 136 in a featherweight title fight at Toyota Center. On Thursday, though, the two fighters were going back to their soccer playing days for a good ole fashioned juggling contest. The contest was ruled to be a draw, although Florian, who played for a brief time at Boston College, seemed to have a slight edge on his Brazilian counterpart.
