This weekend’s UFC 166 is a night of current and former champions; with title holders from the UFC, Strikeforce and Bellator all piling onto one of the best PPVs of the year. Our main event is the rubber match between two outstanding heavyweights, as Cain Velasquez looks to retain his title, taking on the unstoppable Junior Dos Santos. This tilt is worth the price of admission alone, but we’ve got plenty more action to whet the palate.
The UFC on FOX 3 card started off tonight with two bouts streaming on Facebook before the remaining six preliminary fights aired live on Fuel TV. The third installment of the UFC on FOX will feature a four fight main card, headlined by an important lightweight showdown between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller.
Still working out what will work best on network TV the UFC returns to FOX this Saturday with the UFC on FOX 3 from East Rutherford, New Jersey. The third installment on FOX has four main card bouts that should have a little bit of everything to showcase the sport and the UFC to new and old fans watching on network television.
The Tony Ferguson curse has struck once again, as it has been announced that Ferguson’s second scheduled opponent for the UFC on FOX 3, Thiago Tavares has also been forced to withdraw from his bout with Ferguson. Tony’s first scheduled opponent was Dennis Hallman, who was forced out the contest with Ferguson due to a pre-fight injury, and now that Tavares has suffered a similar situation, Michael Johnson has stepped up to face Tony at the upcoming UFC event.
Ultimate Fighter season 13 winner Tony Ferguson will take on the veteran Dennis Hallman at the next UFC on FOX card in May. The bout was announced Monday via the UFC official twitter account and will most likely be a part of the nights preliminary card.
The lighter weights can scrap and the bantamweights and featherweights brought it tonight at the Palms in Las Vegas, Nevada. Two new Ultimate Fighter champions were crowned and 15 of the 16 fighters that made it into the house fought on the card. Headlining the card were the coaches fighting on the finale for only the second time in the series history.
