The headliner is sure to be a barn-burner as the longest-reigining light heavyweight champ in UFC history, Jon Jones, will attempt to defend his belt against his toughest test to date, Alexander Gustafsson, in their highly anticipated rematch.

The co-main event is also very exciting as it features the long-awaited return of former UFC bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz as he puts his skills to the test against Japanese top contender, Takeya Mizugaki.

Top 185-pounders Tim Kennedy and Yoel Romero will also be fighting on the card to see who can secure their spot in the upper echelon of the UFC’s shark tank of a middleweight division.

Additionally, former No. 1 contender “Alpha” Cat Zingano will return from a long lay-off to take on Brazilian knockout artist Amanda Nunes for a potential title shot.

And as the latest addition to the card, top-ranked featherweight Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier will throw down with rising star “The Notorious” Conor McGregor to settle their heated grudge match.

The card will also feature exciting welterweight bouts in John “Doomsday” Howard vs. Brian “Bad Boy” Ebersole and Patrick Cote vs. Stephen Thompson.
