After three weeks of no UFC events, we’re going to head into the final stretch of 2016 with at least one UFC show every week for the rest of the year (except for Christmas). The first November card (AKA the one before UFC 205) is a great one, as former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos and Tony Ferguson headline UFC Fight Night 98 in Mexico City, Mexico. This also doubles as the TUF Latin America 3 final, with Mexico’s Marvin Bravo taking on Peru’s Claudio Puelles in the co-main.
There are a lot of intriguing matchups here, including Ricardo Lamas against Charles Oliveira, Marcin Held against Diego Sanchez, Rashid Magomedov versus Beneil Dariush, and strawweight rising star Alexa Grasso against Heather Jo Clark.
