JOSE ALDO VS FRANKIE EDGAR

INTERIM FEATHERWEIGHT TITLE, UFC 200


Jose Aldo is back in the Octagon for the first time since he was knocked out in 13 seconds to surrender the 145lbs strap to Conor McGregor. We’ll see if he’s still the same fighter, but if not, Edgar is easily the most dangerous man in this division.











J. JEDRZEJCZYK VS C. GADELHA

FEMALE STRAWWEIGHT TITLE


Both of these women are the cream of the crop. Jedrzejczyk edged a razor-thin decision to hand Gadelha her sole loss in 2014 but the Brazilian is her only threat at 115lbs. The added storyline of their roles in the ‘Ultimate Fighter’ ensure a tasty encounter.



DANIEL CORMIER VS JON JONES

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT UNIFICATION


Intrigue, genuine bad blood and two of the most skilled fighters ever, this clash has everything. The contextual backdrop has fallen slightly but nonetheless there are questions to answer; number one being can champ Cormier do better than he did last year?





WILL BROOKS VS ROSS PEARSON

LIGHTWEIGHTS, TUF 23 FINALE


Brooks is making his UFC debut after the dominant Bellator lightweight champion made the switch last month. This is a real litmus test for him against a stern opponent. He’s riding an eight-fight win streak, the last four of which had seven losses combined.



R. DOS ANJOS VS EDDIE ALVAREZ

LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE, UFC FIGHT NIGHT


Dos Anjos has ripped through the 155lbs division, destroying his last five challengers but he meets a fighter well known for his heroic will to win and ability to take lumps. It’s an interesting clash but in theory the Brazilian looks a bad match-up for Alvarez.
