Last November, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and No. 1 contender Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson squared off in a truly epic five-round battle in Madison Square Garden that ended in a draw. Now, the two men are facing off again in what is destined to be a rematch for the ages.
UFC 209: Woodley vs Thompson 2 will happen Saturday, March 4th, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Thompson, a former kickboxer, is on an eight-fight winning streak and is chomping at the bit to get another shot at Woodley in order to show the world that he has what it takes to be the champ. Let’s not forget that the reason Woodley now holds the crown is that he took down former champ, Robbie Lawler, with a brutal first round knockout last July. Needless to say, these are two truly hardcore fighters who are going to give this match everything they’ve got.
The undercard for the event features an Interim Lightweight Title showdown between undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov and former The Ultimate Fighter winner Tony Ferguson, who’s on a nine-match winning streak. Both fights will air live on Saturday, March 4th, only on Pay-Per-View. For more info on where and how to watch, click here now.
