Chance to witness some of the best fighters in the Octagon on March 4!
In the main event, top two fighters in the UFC welterweight division will square up with each other ONCE AGAIN within four months, as Tyron “The Chosen One” Woodley (16–3–1) will defend his welterweight crown against Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson (13–1–1) this Saturday.
Their previous meeting at UFC 205 was nothing short of a spectacle and was declared the ‘Fight of the Night’ and rightfully so. At the end, the fight was declared a majority draw which was a fair reflection. Hence, the most sensible thing to do was to hold a rematch between these two superstars in order to decide the best in the 155lb weight division.
Another blockbuster fight on the card is between the top two contenders Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson (22–3) and Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov (24–0) for the interim lightweight championship. The importance of this fight and the class of fighters on display is such that the organizers could have easily made it the main event instead the co-main event. The UFC President Dana White has also announced that the winner of this fight will go on to face the Champ, Conor “The Notorious” McGregor next.
The Russian has a huge fan following and will be eager to extend his winning streak to (25-0), while El Cucuy is also coming into this fight with nine fight winning streak of his own, and many expect it to be one of the best matchups of the year.
UFC fans will also witness some great fight in the middleweight and heavyweight division, as former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evens will make his middleweight debut against the Australian Judoka Danial Kelly. While in the heavyweight division two giants, Mark “Super Samoan” Hunt and Alistair “The Demolition Man” Overeem, will be back in action following their defeats against Brock Lesnar and Stipe Miocic respectively.
- Decision win for Tyron Woodley.
- Nurmagomedov to win by knockout in round 3.
- Mark Hunt to win by knockout in round 2.
- Rashad Evens to win via unanimous decision.
