More history could be made inside of the Octagon on Saturday night in Brooklyn at the UFC Fight Night 143 event inside the Barclays Center. Outside of the Octagon, history is guaranteed to be made as the new partnership with ESPN officially gets underway. To kick that era off, the latest champion vs. champion showdown headlines what’s slated to be an exciting night of action to begin the new year in UFC.
Reigning bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw is looking to become the latest UFC dual-champion as he moves down a weight class to challenge flyweight champion and former Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo. With the future of the 125-pound division very much up in the air at the moment with UFC president Dana White providing little clarity, if Dillashaw emerges successful, there’s a good chance that the first big event of 2019 could be the last we ever see of the flyweights.
In addition to the Cejudo-Dillashaw showdown, former NFL defensive end Greg Hardy makes his promotional debut and Paige VanZant makes her return to the cage as well as part of the main card.
Below is all the information you need for the UFC Fight Night 143 event set to take place on Saturday evening, with betting odds provided via Bovada.
