Fight fans rejoice as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to pay-per-view (PPV) for what is expected to be a thrilling UFC 196 main card TONIGHT (Sat., March 5, 2016) inside MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Featherweight champion Conor McGregor collides with ex-Lightweight title challenger Nate Diaz in a main event contested at 170 pounds. Both McGregor and Diaz have traded words and let their hands go prior to this emotionally-driven headliner, which is sure to produce fireworks.
In the co-main event, we have reigning women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm looking to defend her 135-pound belt for the first time against scrappy wrestler Miesha Tate. Holm’s camp thinks this will be light work, while Tate pegs movement as the key to beating “Preacher’s Daughter.”
But first, fans will be entertained — or bored — by a slate of seven “Prelims” tilts, which are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. ET on Fight Pass, before they cross over to FOX Sports 1 (FS1) for the final four at 8 p.m. ET.
Here are the results recaps for the four “Prelims” bouts scheduled for FS1:
Brandon Thatch vs. Siyar Bahadurzada
Erick Silva vs. Nordine Taleb
Vitor Miranda vs. Marcelo Guimaraes
Darren Elkins vs. Chas Skelly
