It’s pay-per-view time once again for the Octagon, as UFC 192 takes place this Saturday night.
Set for the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, Daniel Cormier will make his first light heavyweight title defense against former contender Alexander Gustafsson.
Cormier won the vacant belt with a victory over Anthony Johnson earlier this year after UFC officials stripped Jon Jones of the title. Gustafsson, who challenged Jones and went the full 25 minutes, is coming off a loss to “Rumble.”
Along with the title fight, welterweight contenders Tyron Woodley and Johny Hendricks square off, along with a key 205-pound battle that could determine the next title challenger when Rashad Evans meets Ryan Bader.
Heavyweights Shawn Jordan and Ruslan Magomedov, along with female bantamweights Jessica Eye and Julianna Pena, round out the main card.
Flyweights Joseph Benavidez and Ali Bagautinov highlight the FOX Sports 1 prelims, while three bouts start the night on UFC Fight Pass.
As always, FightLine will have you covered all week long with the latest news and information leading up to the night of the fights. We’ll also have play-by-play Saturday of the action from Houston.
