The UFC’s return to China for UFC Beijing is just moments away and there will be plenty of great athletes on display who are looking to put on a show.
In the main event, we’ll see a rematch between top-tier heavyweight as Curtis “Razor” Blaydes looks to exact his revenge over the powerful bomb-slinger, Francis “The Predator” Ngannou.
Ngannou got the win in their first encounter that took place in April 2016 via second-round TKO (doctor’s stoppage). Since then, Blaydes hasn’t lost while Ngannou is looking to snap the first two-fight losing streak of his career after taking on Stipe Miocic and Derrick Lewis.
In the co-main event of the evening, Alistair “The Reem” Overeem welcomes promotional newcomer and former Fight Nights Global champion, Sergey Pavlovich to the Octagon.
The Russian is unbeaten in his 12-fight career to this point and Overeem will hope to give him his first taste of defeat by snapping a losing streak of his own.
The card also features some sensational prospects. Specifically the hometown favorites in the 20-year old bantamweight, Song Yadong, and strawweight hopefuls Weili Zhang and Yan Xiaonan.
