UFC 179 Fight Card

After a rare two week promotional hiatus it’s business as usual this coming Saturday night with UFC 179 taking place in Brazil.

Fronting the evening’s entertainment is a featherweight title rematch between current champion Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes.

In the co-main event light-heavyweight stars Glover Teixeira and Phil Davis will both be looking to get back to winning ways after each suffered defeat in their last Octagon outings.

In all honesty the PPV card starts to thin out a little after that, starting with Fabio Maldonado returning to light-heavyweight duties to take on Hans Stringer after suffering a 35 second TKO loss to Stipe Miocic after coming in as a late replacement earlier in the year.

No.13th ranked featherweight Darren Elkins is also in action trying to bounce back from a loss against Lucas Martins who’s on a three-fight winning streak.

Opening up the main card, Carlos Diego Ferreira will attempt to go 3-0 in the UFC against Beneil Dariush who’s put together a 2-1 record in the Octagon so far.
