It’s not necessarily a fight card made for massive PPV buys, but the main portion of UFC 237 promises to have some rock-solid elite MMA at the very top. In the main event, strawweight champion Rose Namajunas takes on what could be a stylistic nightmare in top contender Jessica Andrade. Former champions Anderson Silva and Jose Aldo feature in tough action bouts, with Aldo’s fight against Alex Volkanovski carrying some serious title implications. Add Thiago Alves, and a veteran lightweight bout between Francisco Trinaldo and Diego Ferreira and it should be a fun event.
If you’re interested in the admittedly much more lackluster prelim card, you can find our breakdown of those bouts below. Or check it out over on SoundCloud.
