Despite the news on Friday that Khabib Nurmagomedov was hospitalized and his bout with, UFC 209 will still go on. Without its co-main event, the fight card still shapes up to provide plenty of action.
Welterweight champ Tyron Woodley and Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson will scrap it out for a second time in four months after battling to a majority draw in November. The two have traded verbal jabs back and forth and seem amped for Saturday’s main event.
Meanwhile, Rashad Evans is set to make his debut at middleweight after having his fight at UFC 205 canceled with the New York State Athletic Commission refusing to give him a license. Now, he will face Daniel Kelly. Plus, a fight many didn’t think would happen, Alistair Overeem vs. Mark Hunt, is set in the heavyweight division.
