UFC 278 Fight Card fan art

The UFC 278 fight card is scheduled and the fighters are set to take the stage Saturday, 8/20/2022, from the Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, UT. The early prelims go live at 5:00 PM CDT on UFC Fight Pass and the remainder of the card is on ESPN+ and PPV.

The main event of the card is UFC pound for pound champion, Kamaru Usman vs the #2 competitor in the welterweight division Leon Edwards. Usman and Edwards faced in 2015 originally. In that fight Usman won the judges over in a 5 round grueling battle. Usman has been dominating this division for a long time, however, Edwards has also been on a tear in the welterweight division, boasting wins over Nate Diaz, Donald Cerrone, Dos Anjos and more since his title shot.

The co-main event is #6 Paulo Costa vs Luke Rockhold in a middleweight bout. Paulo Costa has not won a fight since his 2019 showing against Romero. Costa went on to face the champion Israel Adesanya but lost due to KO/TKO in the second round. He then went to light heavyweight where he suffered a decision loss to Marvin Vettori, schedule to fight in September. Likewise, Rockhold has not tasted victory since his 2018 knockout victory against David Branch.

The remaining card has some real talent in the sport and appears to be worthy of the PPV price tag that’s associated with it. Here is a promotional video, courtesy of the UFC, of the UFC 278 countdown. Below that, are all the remaining match ups for the UFC 278 fight card.

UFC London Blaydes vs Aspinall Fight Card fan art.

It’s the UFC Fight Night Blaydes vs Aspinall fight card coming to London in the O2 Arena. This Saturday July 23, with the main card airing at 1:00 PM CDT.

This one features the big boys, when #4 ranked heavyweight Curtis Blaydes takes on #6 Tom Aspinall in the main event. Blaydes looks to make it three in a row with his impressive 2nd round knockout against Daukaus last March.

Aspinall has other plans however. This rising star has finished everyone of his last five opponents within the first round, with the exception of Arlovski who was submitted in the second round. This fight should have serious title implications for the current champion Francis Ngannou.

The co-main event will be #8 middleweight, Jack Hermansson vs #9 Chris Curtis. Hermansson will look to move forward in the rankings after suffering a split decision loss vs Strickland this February.

Meanwhile, Chris Curtis looks to continue his win streak and show off the heavy hands that have netted 2 of his last three wins by way of KO/TKO.

It looks like a pretty entertaining fight card the UFC is putting on for it’s London fans. Here’s a video from the UFC featuring top finishes from UFC London fighters. Check the rest of the card out below for the remaining UFC London card.

UFC Fight Night Ortega vs Rodriguez Fight Card

UFC Fight Night Ortega vs Rodriguez fight card fan art

The UFC Fight Night Ortega vs Rodriguez fight card is all set to go down Saturday, July 16, 2022 at the UBS Arena in Elmont, NY. This one is headlined by two top 5 contenders in the featherweight division, #2 Brian Ortega faces off against #3 Yair Rodriguez.

Alexander Volkanovski would be a likely opponent for the winner, based on rankings, however, Ortega and Volkanovski met in September of last year, where Volkanovski won by a unanimous decision. It could be worth running that back and see if they can keep it out of the judges hands.

The co-main event will be #10 Michelle Waterson vs #11 Amanda Lemos in a women’s strawweight bout. This fight has some serious potential when you compare the two styles. Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson throws some excellent Karate style strikes whereas Lemos is a very talented striker and even had a Top Ten Female UFC Fighter on her heels, before an amazing standing arm triangle came from Andrade stopping the fight in her last appearance.

Here’s a free fight video, courtesy of the UFC, of Brian Ortega vs Cub Swanson. Below the video is the full fight card for the upcoming event.
