UFC 228 takes place on Saturday, September 8, 2018 in the American Airlines Arena Center in Dallas, Texas.
The principal card broadcasts live on pay-per-view starting 10 p.m. ET after the FS1 prelims.
Two title fights top UFC 228, a card which also features some of the greatest girls in the sport. Welterweight kingpin Tyron Woodley will finally come back to defend his title against kickboxer Darren Until in a timeless wrestler vs. striker matchup. Till has become the hottest 170-pounder in 2018, and the brash Brit tests himself against the very best.
Valentina Shevchenko was tabbed as a prospective 125-pound champ as soon as the UFC established the weight class. But current winner Nicco Montano has had a litany of minor injuries which kept her from competing. Of course, that devolved into accusations of ducking, however, Montano is finally healthy and ready to throw down.
Jessica Andrade vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz is pretty much a title eliminator. KK gets the distinction of being the last fighter to become current champ Rose Namajunas, although there are a lot of fans that believe Andrade would bulldoze against the champ. With no context, I’m always down to see Andrade bomb and piledrive away.
Let’s not leave the men : a featherweight matchup involving Yair Rodriguez and Zabit Magomedsharipov is so hot right now. The two dudes fight like they’re living in the matrix, throwing high-flying kicks and spinning sh*t with reckless abandon. It is a fight that Zabit was requesting for, and after some play with Dana White, Yair is responsible for the win. This could be among the most electrifying matchups of the year.
Who else? John Dodson takes on Jimmie Rivera at a contest with high bantamweight stakes. Rivera is a person whose been knocking on the door to a title shot, but a quick loss to Marlon Moraes ended a 20-fight winning series, together with the hopes of challenging for the strap anytime soon.
