UFC’s year-round schedule never truly slows down as the organization hosts more than 30 events every year. And 2019 is no different for the leader in mixed martial arts. Fresh off UFC 243 in Melbourne which saw Israel Adesanya stake his claim to the middleweight title with a TKO over Robert Whittaker, the UFC schedule marches forward with nine events left before the end of 2019.
The next stop takes us to Beantown for the return and debut of Chris Weidman at 205 pounds when he takes on fast rising contender Dominick Reyes. Weidman has lost four of his last five dating back to 2015, including his most recent TKO loss to Jacare Souza in November 2018. Reyes could be next in line for a title shot with a win.
Then in November, the “BMF” title will be on the line when Nate Diaz makes his return to New York City to take on Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal in a five-round main event at UFC 244 from Madison Square Garden.
There’s plenty more enticing main events and co-main events to get ready for as 2019 starts to draw to a close.
