Now, this one is a bit of a bummer. UFC 173, a huge card headlining a middleweight title fight for the ages, as Chris Weidman was set to face off against Lyoto ‘The Dragon’ Machida, has been postponed and now we are left without a main event.
UFC 173, scheduled for Saturday, May 24 at 10 p.m. on Pay-Per-View is still one hell of a card. The event is set to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Although, as of right now, we are left with a sense of emptiness without a main event, there is still plenty of time to fill the gap, and a fantastic card awaiting us in May, regardless.
