Elsewhere, the likes of Henry Cejudo, Dominick Cruz, Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone, Anthony Pettis and Francis Ngannou will be entering the Octagon in what looks like one of the best cards in UFC history.

“We’re putting together three cards in a week. People who want to fight are going to get fights.”

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a fight week on our hands!
