The countdown is officially on: that’s right, 10 days until UFC® 168 kicks off in a big way. Through UFC VIP Experiences you’ll already be getting the best seat in the house and VIP treatment to view some of the most anticipated matchups (and rematches) of the year!
Let’s take a closer look at these matchups. A few weeks ago we previewed the main card fights: Weidman vs. Silva 2 and Rousey vs. Tate 2. Now, it’s time to delve deeper into the fight card and see who else will looking for a victory at UFC® 168 in Las Vegas on December 28th.
Josh Barnett vs. Travis Browne
This heavyweight matchup will feature Barnett (and former UFC heavyweight champion) against Browne. Barnett’s last fight was in August and ended in a first round stoppage. Browne’s last match was also in August and was also a first-round stoppage win.
This fight won’t just have repercussions for determining the winner of the UFC® 168 bout, but also include a UFC title shot and a chance to show the rest of the UFC why they should be the #1 contender in the division.
Both fighters possess great finishing abilities both on ground and standing, it should be an exciting match!
Jim Miller vs. Fabricio Camoes
This lightweight bout features Miller (11-3 UFC) against Fabricio “Morango” Camoes (1-2-1 UFC). Miller’s obviously got experience on his side and lands more accurate strikes, as well as better submission statistics.
Camoes is coming off a loss to Melvin Guillard, but will look to use his jiu-jitsu background to get a win in the ever fluctuating lightweight division.
Dustin Poirier vs. Diego Brandao
No. 6 ranked featherweight, Poirier (14-3) hopes to put together consecutive victories after alternating losses over the past four fights. His latest victory over Erik Koch showcased his grappling skills, those super submission skills will be put to the test in the December 28th matchup.
Brandao is currently riding high on a three-fight winning streak. He showcased his ground game in his latest win over Daniel Pineda.
This featherweight bout will be a great matchup for fans as both fighters are talented on ground and possess knockout power in their hands.
Las Vegas Fight Night
In less than two weeks at one of the most exciting venues in Las Vegas, these fighters will face off at UFC®168. For some it means a title shot, for others it means a belt, either way this fight card won’t disappoint!
