The fighters are weighed in and we're set for the last UFC event for a whopping 4 weeks!

Hopefully we enter the UFC hiatus on the back of a strong effort, because this card is weak on paper (at least for a PPV.)

Prelims kick off on UFC Fight Pass at 7pm ET before switching to FS1 at 8pm. The main card airs at 10pm. 

Enjoy!

I actually love this card. Santos/Martins, Perry/Roberts, Tumenov/Edwards, Pickett/Alcantara and Manuwa/OSP are all fantastic fights, Diekese's debut and Bektic' return excite me, Mousasi/Vitor is a dream fight of mine and I actually like the storyline behind Bisping/Hendo and no matter which one of them wins, a whole lot of fans will get a huge amount of satisfaction out of it.

It's no UFC 100, but it's very good, even for a PPV. I've seen way worse on paper.

I agree yoss, this card is stacked from top to bottom. So many interesting matchups stylistically.

Can't wait for the fights, looks like some good match ups on paper. Gonna have to follow the updates on the PPV part though tonight. Always get them from MMA Junkie when I'm not going to be able to watch PPV.

Cool that Santos is using the Pride theme, but it's not the same as when The Reem did it.
