Opportunistic Bantamweight roost-ruler, Aljamain Sterling, will attempt his third title defense against returning two-division champion -- and former gold medal-winning Olympic wrestler -- Henry Cejudo, in the ESPN+streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event of UFC 288, which will take place inside Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., on Sat., May 6, 2023. “Triple C” retired from the sport in 2020 and has not competed since, while "Funkmaster" is fresh off a drubbing of another former division champion, T.J. Dillashaw, who entered the bout with a significant shoulder injury. Meanwhile, UFC 288's last-minute PPV co-headliner will feature former Welterweight title challenger, Gilbert Burns, making a super quick turnaround to battle No. 4-seeded Belal Muhammad in a five-round special attraction for the next 170-pound championship opportunity. UFC 288's PPV show also features the return of Bryce Mitchell, as well as Kron Gracie, Drew Dober and more! We'll stockpile all the real-time UFC 288 updates, odds, start time, tickets, weigh ins, predictions, previews, video highlights, press conferences, winners, losers and much more from "The Garden State" right here before, during and well after the ESPN+-streamed live PPV show concludes.
