The UFC gets no rest this week as just seven days removed from UFC 122 in Germany; they are doing it all over again Saturday for UFC 123. The event takes place in Michigan for only the second time in UFC history and the first time May of 1996.
The second to last PPV of the year will feature four former UFC champions in the night main and co-main events. Former light heavyweight champs Lyoto Machida and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will square off in the night’s main event. The Co-main event will complete a trilogy between former welterweight champion Matt Hughes and former welterweight and lightweight champion BJ Penn.
Along with the main card appearing on PPV, Spike will air two preliminary card bouts starting at 6pm PT with the PPV set to begin at 7pm PT.
The fight card has shaped up into a very solid card, as evident with former top fighters Karo Parisyan and Tyson Griffin being on the under card.
