Check out Bloody Elbow’s pre-fight coverage for the Saturday, April 15th UFC on FOX 24 event in Kansas City, Missouri, headlined by flyweight champion and #1 pound-for-pound fighter Demetrious Johnson against Wilson Reis.
UFC on FOX 24 hits the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri on Saturday, April 15th. Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson aims to tie Anderson Silva’s UFC record for most consecutive title defenses in the night’s main event, as he takes on Brazil’s Wilson Reis. The co-main event features strawweight contenders Rose Namajunas and Michelle Waterson in what should be a phenomenal matchup.
My personal favorite fight on the card is Jacare Souza against Robert Whittaker, with the winner one step closer to being passed over for a middleweight title shot. Opening the FOX main card is heavy-handed featherweight Jeremy Stephens against Brazil’s Renato Moicano.
