Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced during its broadcast last night (Sat., Feb. 11, 2017) for UFC 208 that the promotion will be traveling to Kansas City, Missouri, for the first time ever on April 15 for UFC on FOX 24. The event will take place from inside Sprint Center.
As of now, the following fights are scheduled to take place:
Women’s Strawweight: Rose Namajunas vs. Michelle Waterson
Flyweight: Tim Elliott vs. Louis Smolka
Light Heavyweight: Devin Clark vs. Jake Collier
Middleweight: Anthony Smith vs. Andrew Sanchez
Out of the announced bouts, Namajunas vs. Waterson is the most intriguing matchup. Waterson is coming off a huge submission win over Paige VanZant back at UFC on FOX 22, so you’d have to think she’s one major win away from a shot at the 115-pound title. As for “Thug,” a win over “Karate Hottie” will allow her to remain among the division’s best and set her up for another run at the title later this year.
UFC on FOX 24’s main event has yet to be announced.
