UFC Fight Night 209: Fight Card

UFC Fight Night 209 takes place this coming Saturday, September 3rd as the promotion makes it’s long-awaited debut in France at the Accor Arena in Paris and we’ve got the full fight card below.

In the main event, former heavyweight title challenger Ciryl Gane returns for the first time since suffering his first ever loss against Francis Ngannou to take on the in-form Tai Tuivasa, who is in the midst of a five-fight winning streak, with all coming by way of strikes.

In the co-main event Robert Whittaker will try to rebound after coming up short in his attempt to win back the middleweight title from Israel Adesanya as he now prepares to fight another leading challenger in the division, Marvin Vettori, who is coming off a decision win against Paulo Costa.

Alessio Di Chirico is coming off a head kick KO loss last time out, leaving him with just one win from his last five UFC fights, and now he locks horns with Roman Kopylov, who is yet to find a win in his first two Octagon appearances.

John Makdessi brings a solid run of four wins from his last five appearances as he takes on Nasrat Haqparast, who is coming off back-to-back defeats.

French fighter William Gomis makes his UFC debut on the main card after compiling a 10-2 record on the regional circuit, going up against another newcomer in Jaron Errens, who holds a 13-3 record.

After losing out by the narrowest of margins to Shane Burgis last time out, Charles Jourdain will now try to get back to winning ways against Nathaniel Wood, who has been alternating between wins and losses in his last four bouts.
