The UFC’s upcoming return to Boston will be headlined by a pair of fights featuring top contenders at light heavyweight and featherweight along with a slew of new matchups confirmed on Tuesday.
At the top of the card, former middleweight champion Chris Weidman moves to 205 pounds to face Dominick Reyes while highly touted featherweight Zabit Magomedsharipov takes on heavy-hitting local favorite Calvin Kattar.
In addition to those two fights headlining the event, the UFC announced that England’s own Molly McCann will return to action against Diana Belbita, who will be making her Octagon debut after four straight wins on the regional fight scene.
McCann has earned victories in her past two fights in the UFC as she looks to make it three in a row against a newcomer in Belbita.
Also returning on the card in Boston will be middleweight prospect Deron Winn, who looks to build on his successful debut win as he faces British slugger Darren Stewart.
As a protégé of former two division UFC champion Daniel Cormier, Winn seems to have the pedigree to make waves in the middleweight division but he will face a stiff test from Stewart, who has earned knockouts in two of his past three wins.
