UFC 209 is coming. After a run of lackluster cards to start 2017, the UFC has finally hit pay dirt with a PPV that looks like a thriller from top to bottom. In the main event, the rematch of 2016’s surprise draw welterweight title fight between champion Tyron Woodley and contender Stephen Thompson. In the co-main event, an interim lightweight title bout between two of the world’s most thrilling lightweights, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson. Throw in Lando Vannata, Overeem vs. Hunt, and a whole bunch of hot prospects and this card is primed to deliver.
