Tomorrow night, the UFC returns to Los Angeles, California with the exciting UFC 227 card.
This card, which will emanate from the hallowed Staples Center, will be headlined by a bantamweight title rematch between champion TJ Dillashaw and challenger Cody Garbrandt. The pair first met less than a year ago, in the co-main event of UFC 217 in November. On that night, Dillashaw defeated Garbrandt via second-round knockout to reclaim the UFC bantamweight belt.
The UFC 227 co-main event, meanwhile, will occur at flyweight, where dominating divisional champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson will attempt to defend his title for a whopping 12th time against former Olympian Henry Cejudo. Johnson has defeated Cejudo once before, mauling him to a first-round TKO in April of 2016.
Other highlights of the main card include a featherweight contender bout between Cub Swanson and Renato Moicano and a middleweight bout between Kevin Holland and Thiago Santos.
On Friday afternoon, the 24 fighters on this 12-fight card took to the scales to weigh in for their respective battles.
Remarkably, all 24 fighters on the bill made weight. In these trying times of frequent weigh-in blunders, that’s a definite cause for celebration!
