Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is poised to make its return to “The Empire State,” as the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion puts the finishing touches on the UFC 208 pay-per-view (PPV) fight card for this Saturday night (Feb. 11, 2017) inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Tasked with carrying the five-round main event are Holly Holm and Germaine De Randamie, as they collide for the women’s inaugural featherweight championship. That’s a fight that was expected to feature Cris Cyborg; however, the Brazilian ran into trouble with United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and remains on the sidelines.
In the UFC 208 co-headliner, former middleweight champion Anderson Silva tries to get back into the win column against rugged 185-pound contender Derek Brunson. The soon to be 42-year-old “Spider” has not tasted victory since a 2012 drubbing of Stephan Bonnar in his native Brazil.
