On Saturday night, the UFC will return to the combat sports mecca of Las Vegas, Nevada with UFC 209. The card is packed to the edges with talented fighters.
In the main event, we’ll see fearsome welterweight champion Tyron Woodley take on dangerous challenger Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson in a rematch of their thrilling majority draw, which occurred at UFC 205 in November. In the co-main event, we’ll see streaking lightweight contenders Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson vie for the interim lightweight title, as the division’s undisputed king Conor McGregor is currently on hiatus. Elsewhere on the main card we’ll witness a dynamite heavyweight rematch between destructive veterans Alistair Overeem and Mark Hunt, a clash of flashy lightweight strikers in Lando Vannata and David Teymur, and the middleweight debut of former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans, who will take on Australian judoka Dan Kelly. The undercard, finally, will feature appearances by names like Paul “Bearjew” Craig, Iuri Alcantara, Darren Elkins, Mirsad Bektic, and Marcin Tybura.
