UFC 228 takes place on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the American Airlines Arena Center at Dallas, Texas.
The principal card broadcasts live on pay-per-view starting 10 p.m. ET following the FS1 prelims.
Two title fights top UFC 228, a card that also offers some of the greatest girls in the game. Welterweight kingpin Tyron Woodley will finally come back to defend his title against kickboxer Darren Till in a classic wrestler vs. striker matchup. Till has become the hottest 170-pounder in 2018, and now the brash Brit tests himself against the best.
Valentina Shevchenko was tabbed as a prospective 125-pound champ as soon as the UFC created the weight class. But current winner Nicco Montano has experienced a litany of minor accidents which kept her from competing. Obviously, that devolved into accusations of ducking, however, Montano is finally healthy and ready to throw down.
Jessica Andrade vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz is fairly much a title eliminator. KK has the distinction of being the fighter to be present champ Rose Namajunas, although there are a whole lot of fans that believe Andrade would bulldoze against the champ. Without any context, I am always down to see Andrade bomb and piledrive away.
Let’s not leave out the guys : a featherweight matchup between Yair Rodriguez and Zabit Magomedsharipov is hot at the moment. The two dudes fight as they’re living in the matrix, throwing high-flying kicks and turning sh*t with reckless abandon. It’s a battle that Zabit was requesting for, and after some play with Dana White, Yair is responsible for the win. This really is among the most electrifying matchups of the year.
Who else? John Dodson takes on Jimmie Rivera at a competition with high bantamweight stakes. Rivera is a person whose been knocking on the door to a title shot, but a fast loss to Marlon Moraes ended a 20-fight winning streak, along with the hopes of challenging for the strap anytime soon.
