The majority of the hard work is done.
All that remains for the featured players for this weekend’s bumper UFC 209 card in Las Vegas is to make weight and then make history. In the main event, the rivalry between Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson over the UFC’s welterweight championship has been simmering over for the best part of a year and will reach a conclusion on Saturday night which escaped them both in their first meeting at UFC 205 in November.
The c0-main event for the hastily assembled interim UFC lightweight title between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov is one of the more fascinating matches that the 155-pound fold can deliver. Coming into the bout on 9 and 8 fight winning streaks respectively, the winner of the bout will be considered the next in line to challenge Conor McGregor for his lightweight strap.
