UFC is back this weekend with a PPV event: UFC 209
The upcoming Saturday’s event UFC 209: Woodley vs. Thompson II invites this time on several interesting top matches and makes for a really entertaining evening indeed.
In the main event, it’s time for the rematch between welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (16-3-1) and number 1-ranked Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson (13-1-1). The men first met at UFC 205 in November in a match that ended in a draw after five ronders war. Yup it was quite a controversial decision after the cage announcer Bruce Buffer misrepresented the decision.
The co-main event will also be a spectacular fight; long-awaited interim lightweight title fight between undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov (24-0) versus Tony Ferguson (22-3). In addition to a number of other exciting bouts this event has to offer, a promising lightweight meeting between Swedish striker David Teymur (5-1) is set against the super talented Lando Vannata (9-1). Both are great strikers and ready to prove that belong in the top 10-ranking.
12 exciting bouts is expected, and the event takes place in the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, on March 4th. Check out the full fight card below!
