Michael Bisping, Rashad Evans break down UFC Fight Night 123: ‘Swanson vs Ortega' event on Dec. 9 in Fresno

Now that UFC 218 is in the books — full results here — it’s time to look ahead to Ultimate Fighting Championship’s (UFC) next offering.

UFC Fight Night 123 is all set to go down from inside Save Mart Center in Fresno California on Saturday Dec. 9, 2017, as Cub Swanson takes on Brian Ortega in the 145-pound headlining bout.

Cub has been lobbying and questioning UFC’s decision to not grant him a shot at the division title, but a win over Ortega could finally open up the promotion’s eyes as to who the next contender for the belt is. Meanwhile, Brian is looking to make some noise of his own with a win over a seasoned veteran like “Killer Cub.”

Also on the card, Aljamain Sterling battles against Marlon Moraes, while Jason Knight tangos with Gabriel Benitez in the co-main event of the Fox sports 1-televised card. Befroe the show goes down, Rashad Evans and Michael Bisping break down the headlining bout that could have major title implications.
