On Saturday, March 4, the UFC hosted UFC 209: Woodley vs. Thompson 2 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
In the night’s main event, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley put his belt on the line once again against Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson. The pair battled to a draw at UFC 205 in November, allowing Woodley to retain the title. Prior to that, Woodley captured the belt with a violent, first-round knockout of Robbie Lawler at UFC 201. Thompson, meanwhile, rode an eight-fight unbeaten streak that dates back to UFC 145 in 2012. The 34-year-old looked to make the most of his second crack at the champion.
The card was also slated to feature an interim lightweight title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and TUF winner Tony Ferguson, but the Dagestani fighter Nurmagomedov was hospitalized during his weight cut and the bout was canceled.
The 11-fight event kicked off Saturday at 7 p.m. ET with two fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts followed at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
