UFC 186’s line-up has been hit hard by injuries and call-offs, but despite a weakened line-up it’s still forging ahead on pay-per-view this coming Saturday night with the following fight card.
Headlining the show is a flyweight title encounter which finds Demetrious Johnson looking for his sixth successful defense of his belt against Japan’s Kyoki Horiguchi who’s currently ranked No.8 in the division after a 4-0 run in the Octagon.
In the co-main event Michael Bisping looks to get back to winning ways and stay in the middleweight top 10 against CB Dollaway who’s one place behind him in the rankings at No.11 and also coming off a loss.
The card noticeably weakens at this stage, starting with Steve Bosse making his UFC debut as a late replacement for Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson where he’ll take on Fabio Maldonado.
John Makdessi will be looking to rebound after a loss last time out snapped a three-fight winning streak, when he goes up against another late replacement in the shape of the debuting Shane Campbell.
finally, the main card is opened up by a bantamweight encounter between Thomas Almeida and Yves Jabouin who are both looking to get back-to-back wins under their belt in the UFC.
