UFC 178 Lineup Set With Domininck Cruz On Prelims

August 20, 2014 6:37 pm by BJPENN.COM News

While the void left by Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier surely stings, UFC officials have put forth their best efforts to keep UFC 178 a compelling fight card.

Set for September 27, ‘UFC 178: Johnson vs. Cariaso’ is set to take place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will defend his title against Chris Cariaso, live on pay-per-view.

The pay-per-view event is being billed as STACKED! And that notion is evidenced by the ,almost insulting, bump of the returning and rightful(ish) bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz to the night’s free preliminary card.

But don’t take our word for it, here’s how the event stacks up!

MAIN CARD: (Pay-per-view, 7 p.m. PT)

  • Champ Demetrious Johnson vs. Chris Cariaso – for flyweight title
  • Eddie Alvarez vs. Donald Cerrone
  • Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier
  • Tim Kennedy vs. Yoel Romero
  • Amanda Nunes vs. Cat Zingano

PRELIMINARY CARD: (FOX Sports 1, 5 p.m. PT)

  • Dominick Cruz vs. Takeya Mizugaki
  • James Krause vs. Jorge Masvidal
  • Patrick Cote vs. Stephen Thompson
  • Brian Ebersole vs. John Howard

PRELIMINARY CARD: (UFC Fight Pass, 4 p.m. ET)

  • Kevin Lee vs. Jon Tuck
  • Manny Gamburyan vs. Cody Gibson
