UFC returns to Las Vegas as Tyron Woodley (16-3-1) faces Stephen Thompson (13-1-1) in what should be an explosive welterweight title fight re-match.
Their first bout at UFC 205 ended in a majority draw, so both fighters will be eager to earn the bragging rights – and the title – in Nevada.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of this much-anticipated fight.
WHERE IS THE FIGHT ON?
T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas on Saturday, March 4 (early morning of Sunday, March 5 UAE time)
WHAT TIME WILL THE MAIN CARD START?
Approximately 7am UAE time on Sunday morning
HOW CAN I WATCH IT?
WHO IS FIGHTING ON THE MAIN CARD?
Tyron Woodley vs Stephen Thompson
Rashad Evans vs Dan Kelly
Lando Vannata vs David Teymur
Alistair Overeem vs Mark Hunt
The March 4 match-up is actually the third time the two fighters had been scheduled to meet, but injuries have prevented the bout from taking place prior to UFC 209.
Now, Nurmagomedov and Ferguson meet with the interim lightweight title on the line, but the personal bad blood in this feud might go much deeper than any belt being handed out at the end of the fight.
Let’s just say it’s going to be explosive, as you can see in this video.
Who do you think will come out on top in Las Vegas?
Derrick ‘The Black Beast’ Lewis rallied in the second round of his main event clash with Travis Browne in Halifax to score a knockout win.
The heavyweight clutched his stomach during the opening five minutes after finding himself on the receiving end of Browne’s front kicks.
Although he did score a knockdown with a solid right hand in the first, it appeared as though the writing was on the wall for the New Orleans native going into the second round.
Lewis began the onslaught that eventually ended the night for Brown in the first minute of the next round.
He then rendered Browne unconscious with his patented ground and pound with less than two minutes left on the clock to take the win.
