Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates, is playing host to the UFC for the second time ever on Friday, and MMASucka.com has you covered.
This UFC Fight Pass exclusive has a four fight main card, starting off with a lightweight battle between rising stars Ramsey Nijem and Beneil Dariush. Welterweights John “Doomsday” Howard and Ryan LaFlare take to the Octagon after them.
The co-main event sees Tatsuya “The Crusher” Kawajiri take on Clay “The Carpenter” Guida in what could very well be a Fight of the Night candidate at featherweight.
The main event is a heavyweight bout, pitting the legendary Antonio Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira against Roy “Big Country” Nelson. Both men are coming off losses, and a win here will allow one of these fighters to remain relevant in the UFC’s 265 lbs. division.
