UFC 228 Occurs on Saturday, September 8, 2018 in the American Airlines Arena Center at Dallas, Texas.
The main card airs live on pay-per-view starting 10 p.m. ET following the FS1 prelims.
Two title fights top UFC 228, a card which also offers some of the greatest women in the sport. Welterweight kingpin Tyron Woodley will eventually return to defend his title against kickboxer Darren Till in a classic wrestler vs. striker matchup. Till has been the hottest 170-pounder in 2018, and the brash Brit tests himself against the very best.
Valentina Shevchenko was tabbed as a future 125-pound champ as soon as the UFC created the weight class. But current champion Nicco Montano has had a litany of minor injuries that kept her from competing. Obviously, that devolved into accusations of ducking, but 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 last fighter to become current champ Rose Namajunas, although there are a whole lot of fans that think Andrade would bulldoze against the champ. Without any context, I am always down to see Andrade bomb and piledrive away.
Let’s not leave the guys either: a featherweight matchup between Yair Rodriguez and Zabit Magomedsharipov is hot right now. Both dudes fight as they’re living in the matrix, throwing high-flying kicks and spinning sh*t with reckless abandon. It’s a battle that Zabit was asking for, and after some play with Dana White, Yair is responsible for the win. This could be among the most electrifying matchups of the year.
Who else? John Dodson takes on Jimmie Rivera in 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 finished a 20-fight winning streak, along with the hopes of challenging for the strap any time soon.
