Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will make its return to Beijing, China this Saturday (Nov. 24, 2018) to stage UFC Fight Night 141 from inside Cadillac Arena, featuring a Heavyweight rematch between Francis Ngannou and Curtis Blaydes.
The two-hard-hitting big men initially fought at UFC Fight Night 86 in 2016 in Zagreb, Croatia. At the time, Curtis was making his Octagon debut while Francis was trying to collect his second straight victory inside the cage.
After two rounds of action that saw Francis drop “Razor” with his heavy-handed attack, Curtis was left a bloody mess with his right eye swollen completely shut. Much to his — and the referee’s — dismay, the cage-side physician put an end to the bout. Two years and five wins later, Blaydes will look to get one back on “The Predator” in hopes of finally locking down his first-ever UFC title fight.
Before then, take a look at the official promo video for the Fight Pass event, which will also feature a co-headliner between Alistair Overeem and Sergey Pavlovich.
