UFC 232 is set to go down this weekend, and the final pay-per-view card of the year was not without some drama. Following a drug test abnormality for headliner Jon Jones, the event was forced to be moved from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to The Forum in Inglewood, California. The card ended up being saved on just six days’ notice, although it was quite the inconvenience for fans who had purchased tickets for the event that was originally scheduled for Las Vegas. UFC has put new tickets on sale for The Forum, and the organization has reasonably priced them, with cageside seats going for around $300.
Jones will make his return from suspension stemming from his 2017 test failure this Saturday, and when he does, he’ll be staring across the Octagon at a very familiar opponent. Jones will be facing Alexander Gustaffson in a rematch of their classic 2015 bout in which Gustafsson gave the then-light heavyweight champion all he could handle. These two will be facing off for the light heavyweight belt once again here at UFC 232, though this time it will be for the title that will be vacated by reigning heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier once that cage door closes.

The co-main event is a bout that some fans may even admit they’re looking forward to a little more than the main event itself. Women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg and women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes will battle for the former’s title. These are unquestionably two of the most dangerous female fighters on the planet, and finally, it’s now time to see who the best of the best truly is when these deadly strikers start throwing with each other.
