This Saturday night UFC 164 goes live in Milwaukee and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.
The lightweight title is on the line in the main event of the show as current champion Ben Henderson seeks to avenge a loss to Anthony Pettis dating back to the final ever WEC event in 2010.
Since moving to the UFC immediately afterwards Henderson has been an unstoppable force, going a perfect 7-0, while Pettis initially slipped up with a loss to Clay Guida, but has since gone on a three fight winning streak, impressively managing to finish both Joe Lauzon and Donald Cerrone in first round victories along the way.
Co-main event honors goes to a heavyweight tilt between Josh Barnett (who returns after an 11 year exile from the Octagon), and former champion Frank Mir.
A major featherweight fight between Clay Guida and Chad Mendes that could have title implications also features on the solid five bout main card.
Brandon Vera makes the move back up to heavyweight to try to kickstart his career again against Ben Rothwell who it’s emerged received a medical exemption to use TRT prior to this fight.
Finally, the main card will be opened up by an intruiging 145lb clash as two of the division’s most highly regarded young talents Erik Koch and Dustin Poirier finally get the opportunity to lock horns and find out who the better man is.
