Fights on Tap is a weekly roundup of all the fights booked in the UFC, Bellator and other promotions.

Another week has gone by and the UFC has continued to beef up its schedule with a myriad of new fights. Nineteen of them were either announced or finalized recently, and there are several fights that fans should pay really close attention to. One of those is a potential ‘Fight of the Night’ candidate between lightweights Dan Hooker and Nasrat Haqparast that was made official for UFC 266 in September.

Bellator also announced the co-main event for Bellator 267, which will be a women’s featherweight fight between Leah McCourt and Jessica Borga. The event is headlined by a long-awaited rematch between former welterweight champion Douglas Lima and No. 2 ranked contender Michael Page.
