UFC Fight Night 47 Fight Card

After a brief hiatus, the UFC is back in business this Saturday night with UFC Fight Night 47 from Bangor, Maine on FOX Sports 1 and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.

Headlining the show is a light-heavyweight clash between top 10 contenders Ryan Bader (No.8) and Ovince St.Preux (No.10).

The co-main event should be an interesting lightweight tussle between Gray Maynard, who’s returning for the first time this year after back-to-back stoppage losses, and Ross Pearson.

Tim Boetsch will be hoping to avoid slipping completely off the UFC’s middleweight rankings (currently No.14) when he faces Brad Tavareswho would gladly takes his place in the top 15.

With three losses in his last four fights, Seth Baczynski knows a win over the debuting Alan Jouban is a must.

Shawn Jordan will feel the same way after suffering back-to-back KO losses in the Octagon, and he too will look to put that behind him against Jack May who suffered a first round TKO defeat in his debut back in April.

The six fight main card is opened up by Thiago Tavares who’ll make his featherweight debut against Robbie Peralta.
