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.
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.
To get fans hyped for this weekend’s face-punching extravaganza, the promotion has released episode four of its popular “Embedded” video blog series focusing on all four main and co-main combatants.
