The UFC is making up for taking last week off with a double header of events this weekend in Las Vegas. They’ve got the TUF 27 Finale featuring Israel Adesanya, Brad Tavares, and… some other people. UFC 226 is the big event, though. Or at least it was supposed to be until Max Holloway had to be removed from the card. Still Daniel Cormier vs. Stipe Miocic is a thrilling fight, and Francis Ngannou vs. Derrick Lewis, and Mike Perry vs. Paul Felder, and Gokhan Saki should all ensure for an action packed evening.
