Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is finally making its debut in the Philippines with UFC Fight Night 66, taking place later today (Sat., May 16, 2015) inside SM Mall of Asia Arena on the outskirts of Manila.
In the co-headlining spot, televised on FOX Sports 1, hot-and-cold middleweight Gegard Mousasi battles fellow 185-pound slugger Costas Philippou.
Mousasi (36-5-2) has alternated wins and losses since his Octagon debut back in early 2013, having recently smashed Dan Henderson in Sweden. Philippou (13-4, 1 NC), meanwhile, is fresh off a knockout win over the venerable Lorenz Larkin and looks to win back-to-back fights for the first time in over two years at the expense of "The Dreamcatcher."
