Woodley vs Thompson 2

The first meeting ended in a draw nonetheless it was one of the best championship fights in UFC history, claiming the fight of the night award at UFC 205. Woodley who feels as if he hasn’t been given the respect he deserves as champion will be seeking validation through his first title defence. Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson is aiming to spoil the party & taste UFC gold for the first time. Damian Mia who’s long been considered a contender for the title is waiting in the wings for the winner.

 

Potential fight of the night

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Tony Ferguson

With fan opinion divided on who is the rightful challenger to Conor McGregor’s lightweight title the only way to settle the debate was for the two men in question to collide. Undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov puts his 24-0 record on the line aginst the man who owns the longest active UFC lightweight win streak (9 fights) Tony Ferguson.

Two high-level fighters in their prime at the top of their game. Both competitors are renowned for being aggressive and setting a high pace, all roads point to fireworks on march 4th.

 

Fighter to watch out for

Lando Vannata

The aesthetic fluidity of Vannata’s fighting style is extraordinary. Part of his philosophy is the ever growing movement training which is revolutionizing the sport of MMA. For his promotional debut in the UFC he took a fight with Tony Ferguson on two weeks notice & had Ferguson in all kinds of trouble before running out of gas.

At 24 years old Lando is one of the brightest talents in all of MMA, at UFC 206 he gets the opportunity to showcase his talents on the main card of a big pay per view show. Expect him to flourish.
