Live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York is UFC 208, the promotion’s first Pay-Per-View event in 2017.
The event features the first ever UFC Women’s Featherweight Title fight between Holly Holm and Germaine de Randamie. The bout is an incredible matchup between two of the sport’s most decorated strikers outside of MMA, given Holm’s boxing background and De Randamie’s kickboxing resume. One of these women will walk out of The Barclays Center with new hardware to add to their collection.
The co-main event will see the legendary #7 Anderson “The Spider” Silva take a very dangerous and powerful opponent in #8 Derek Brunson. Styles make fights, and both of these men’s strengths play right into their opponent’s weaknesses, which should create fireworks inside the cage.
Originally scheduled for twelve fights, the fight card has been reduced to only ten since a pair of fighters were removed due to medical issues following the official weigh-ins. Justin Willis did not weigh-in due to health issues, and Ian McCall was removed on Saturday afternoon due to issues following his weight cut.

Bellator 185- How to Watch, Times and Fight Card
Bellator is once again heading to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville Connecticut, and this time they are bringing with them one of the most anticipated former UFC fighter turned Bellator stars’ debut. Gegard Mousasi will be making his first appearance in the Bellator cage against a former Bellator champion in Alexander Shlemenko. Although this event has lost some of its star power over the last several weeks, it is still stacked and you can bet that the main event will bring some fireworks.
Earlier in the month, it was announced that King Mo had suffered an injury that had forced him out of his co-main event fight with former middleweight champion Liam McGeary. Bellator worked quickly to secure a replacement opponent for McGeary in Bubba McDaniels. Unfortunately for McDaniels and the fans alike, McGeary had later suffered an injury of his own and the fight was removed from the card.
This left a spot open in the co-main event slot, which would be filled by a welterweight matchup between Brennan Ward and David Rickels. Just four days out from the fight, Bellator announced that Ward had also become injured and the fight has been removed from the card as well. The main card has been shuffled around and the welterweight bout between Neiman Gracie and Zak Bucia will now serve as the co-main event.
