In UFC 293’s hard-hitting Heavyweight co-main event, No-6-ranked fan favorite, Tai Tuivasa, locks horns with towering Russian, Alexander Volkov (No. 8).

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

The UFC 292 PPV co-main event features current strawweight champion Zhang Weili taking on No. 4-ranked Brazilian bruiser Amanda Lemos. Both “Magnum” and “Amandinha” earned a bit of real estate on the UFC 292 poster, which stands as an improvement over some of the other recent offerings.

Sterling is expected to jump to featherweight with a win.

“I really don’t think the bantamweight division has anything left for me,” Sterling previously told The Schmo. “I’m probably just going to go up to 145 and let Merab (Dvalishvili) continue to reign terror on the rest of these guys in the bantamweight division.”
