Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is taking a small break to make way for the upcoming boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, which is set to go down on Aug. 26, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The promotion will return to pay-per-view (PPV) action on September 9, 2017 as it presents UFC 215: “Johnson vs. Borg” from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada which will see current Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson attempt to set an all-time title defense record at 11 in a row.
“Mighty Mouse” is currently tied with Anderson Silva at 10, but taking out “The Tazmexican Devil” will put him in a class all his own.
In the co-main event, Amanda Nunes will look to defend her title against Valentina Shevchenko, while Junior dos Santos takes on fast-rising Heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou in a hard-hitting Heavyweight affair.
To get you pumped up for the event, the promotion has released it’s first of many upcoming promotional videos promoting UFC 215. In the meantime, to see the most up-to-date fight card click here.
