UFC On ESPN 56 Fight Card

UFC On ESPN 56 takes place this coming Saturday night, 11th May in St. Louis and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.

Headlining the event will be a heavyweight clash between Derrick Lewis, who has lost four of his last five fights, and Rodrigo Nascimento, who is on a three-fight winning streak.

In the co-main event we have Joaquin Buckley and Nursulton Ruziboev, who both showed off their striking prowess with TKO wins on the same card just over a month ago.

Alonzo Menifield comes in off a five-fight unbeaten stretch to face Carlos Ulberg, who coincidentally has won in his last five Octagon appearances.

Diego Ferreira shook off a three-fight losing streak when he KO’d Michael Johnson a year ago and now he returns to fight Mateusz Rebecki, who has won all three of his UFC fights so far to extend his career record to 19-1.

Alex Caceres looks to bounce back from a decision loss last time out when he fights Sean Woodson, who is unbeaten in his last five bouts.

Opening up the main card will be heavyweight action as Waldo Cortes-Acosta looks to build on back-to-back wins as he squares up to Robelis Despaigne who earned an 18 second TKO victory in his UFC debut in March.
