UFC 232 takes place on Saturday, December 29, 2018 at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
The card airs live on pay-per-view starting 10pm ET.
The light heavyweight GOAT is back, and he’s throwing hands with the guy that gave him his best test. That’s right people, Jon Jones meets Alexander Gustafsson in a rematch of one of the greatest fights in UFC history – with the vacant light heavyweight belt at stake.
Regardless of the asterisk involved every time Jones’ name is brought up in historical terms, there is no doubting that he is the strongest physical prospect to step within the octagon. How can you just forget about an undefeated fighter with a 6’4″ frame, 84″ reach and a fighting style that nobody could figure out?
The man that came closest to officially beating Bones was Alexander Gustafsson, whose elevation and scope raised some issues. The Swede is 6’5″ and an awesome boxer in his own right, and he was the first man to ever take down the former champ. After two failed efforts to raise the 205-pound gold, Gustafsson could finally take the strap and conquer the consensus GOAT in the procedure.
Speaking of GOATS, Cris Cyborg has a rightful claim to the moniker in women’s MMA. The only knock against her is that she has mainly been fighting girls who’ve been way overmatched. But bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes is coming to get the chance to grab Cyborg’s featherweight strap, which is hands-down a superfight. Nunes is the one fighter whose striking could be every bit the equivalent of Justino’s as it comes to knockout power.
With two title fights featuring two stars of the game, UFC 232 continues a long tradition of finishing each year with a bang.
