Meanwhile, the co-main event features our second title fight today, this one will be for the UFC Interim Bantamweight Championship between #1 ranked, Petr ‘No Mercy’ Yan, with a record of 15-2 and the #3 ranked, Cory ‘The Sandman’ Sandhagen, with a 14-3 record.
Also on the card, we had a highly-anticipated Lightweight match between Islam Makhachev and Dan ‘The Hangman’ Hooker. As well as an eagerly-awaited Welterweight tilt between, ‘The Leech’ Jingliang Li, and the undefeated phenom, Khamzat ‘Borz’ Chimaev.
