This Saturday, the UFC will host a trio of title fights from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California as the light heavyweight title, the welterweight title, and the women’s featherweight title are all put on the line.

In the main event, UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier puts his light heavyweight title on the line against former light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones in a highly anticipated rematch several years in the making. The fight, which has been scheduled and rescheduled several times in the past, is finally taking place this Saturday.

In the co-main event, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and top ranked welterweight Demian Maia will take the center of the Octagon in a highly anticipated welterweight title fight that will see Woodley look to defend his welterweight title once again as he faces arguably the most technical JiuJitsu practitioner in the UFC today. That staredown of course was much less intense than the main event staredown between Jones and Cormier:

The final title fight on the card, which is being promoted as the co-co-main event, is a women’s featherweight title fight between Cris Cyborg and Tonya Evinger. In that fight, Cris Cyborg will look to finally capture UFC gold as she takes on Invicta FC women’s bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger for the vacant women’s featherweight title.
