UFC® 187 will be a top-notch night for fans as Jon “Bones” Jones will defend his title for the ninth time against Anthony “Rumble” Johnson. Joining two of the best UFC® fighters will be current champion Chris Weidman and the “The Phenom”, Vitor Belfort.
There are many reasons UFC® 187 will be a night you will not want to miss. Here are 10 reasons to see the big night LIVE:
1. Will Jon Jones Continue to Dominate?
Jones has continued to dominate the light heavyweight division since coming onto the scene in 2008. The UFC® has continued to come up with new opponents for the powerhouse, but have struggled to do so. Will he continue to take down each contender? Time and UFC® 187 will tell.
2. Rumble on the Rise
Anthony “Rumble” Johnson shocked the UFC® world when he knocked out Alexander Gustafsson in January. With the unbelievable win, he earned his shot at taking a swing at the indomitable Jones. I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait to see what we has to show at UFC® 187.
3. Clash of Middleweight Titans
Two middleweight powerhouses will collide at UFC® 187. Current middleweight champion will defend his title against Vitor Belfort. The two have been in talks to go head to head for over a year. While Belfort is known for his hard-nose striking and high-powered kicks, Weidman’s wrestling is unparalleled in the UFC®.
4. Will “Cowboy” Keep it Up?
Donald Cerrone is on the card, and he is slated to fight one of the latest UFC® phenomenons, Khabib Nurmagomedov. “Cowboy” has taken on several fights since the beginning of the year, and he continues to show up in the Octagon™ energized and ready to fight. The only question is will he be able to keep it up?
