New, 23 comments

After nearly two years of inactivity, former UFC heavyweight champion, Cain Velasquez, will look to prove he’s still a legitimate threat to the 265-pound crown by taking on former division title contender, Francis Ngannou. Elsewhere on the card, which marks the promotion’s debut on ESPN, Aljamain Sterling and Jimmie Rivera collide for a spot in the 135-pound title chase.
