It's going to be hard to stay inside on a beautiful Memorial Day weekend. But with UFC Fight Night 88 set to commence this Sunday (May 29, 2016) live and free on FOX Sports 1 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, fight fans will have one good reason to bypass the nice weather and tasty barbecue.
Headlined by a Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Bantamweight tilt between rising contenders Thomas Almeida and Cody Garbrandt, UFC Fight Night 88 has quickly become a sleeper card for 2016. Other exciting names like former UFC Bantamweight champion Renan Barao, heavy-handed Jeremy Stephens, hard-nosed veteran Rick Story, power puncher Abel Trujillo, and rising star Aljamain Sterling will also take to the Octagon.
But before the action begins, the combatants stepped on the mat and showcased their skills in front of UFC fans as part of UFC Fight Night 88's open workouts.
