WATCH HERE: UFC 257 – Poirier vs. McGregor 2
Darren Till recently vacated the title as he plans his move up to the middleweight division, leaving the top contenders to square off to crown a new champion. Reyes is coming off a controversial decision loss to Jones, suffering the first defeat of his career in the process. Whittaker is on a three-fight winning streak, most recently knocking out Cannonier.
Below are the confirmed bouts for the fight card that is still yet to announce a location less than a month out. Among the most interesting bouts is Jake Matthews vs. Diego Sanchez as Sanchez nears the end of his career. He won his most recent outing by disqualification after Michel Pereira landed an illegal knee. Because of that, he’s won three of his last four fights.
