On Saturday, Sept. 8, the UFC returns to the American Airlines Center in Dallas for UFC 228: Woodley vs. Till.

In the night’s main event, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley puts his belt on the line against Liverpool native Darren Till. Woodley has been out of action for over a year, most recently defeating Demian Maia at UFC 214 last July. Till was most recently in the cage in his native England, edging former title challenger Stephen Thompson in May to earn his shot at the belt.

Gold is also on the line in the co-main event as women’s flyweight champion Nicco Montaño defends her belt for the first time against former bantamweight No. 1 contender Valentina Shevchenko. Montaño defeated veteran Roxanne Modafferi at the TUF 26 Finale in December to claim the belt. Shevchenko made a successful debut at 125 pounds earlier this year, demolishing Priscila Cachoeira in February.



The 14-fight event kicks off with five bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 6 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow on FX at 8 p.m. ET, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
