Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing combat sports fans a championship doubleheader at the upcoming UFC 227 pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., on Sat., Aug. 4, 2018.
And now it has an official poster.
UFC 227 will be headlined by the bantamweight grudge match between reigning 135-pound kingpin TJ Dillashaw and ex-champion Cody Garbrandt, who first went to war at UFC 217 last November. The result was a knockout loss for “No Love.”
In the UFC 227 co-headliner, longtime flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will give Olympic medalist Henry Cejudo another crack at the crown, after delivering “The Messenger” his first pro defeat way back at UFC 197.
Elsewhere on the card, longtime veteran Cub Swanson makes his return to the featherweight division opposite Brazilian bruiser Renato Moicano, while Derek Brunson and Antonio Carlos Junior hook ‘em up in middleweight action.
