The UFC returns to the City of Angels on Saturday, Aug. 4, with a title doubleheader showcasing the promotion’s two lightest weight classes on the men’s side of the board.
In the night’s main event, the rivalry between former teammates T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt continues. Dillashaw recaptured bantamweight gold when the pair clashed at UFC 217 in November and Dillashaw knocked out Garbrandt in the second round. Garbrandt will look to match Dillashaw as a two-time champion, whereas Dillashaw will try to cement his legacy with another victory.
Gold will also be on the line in the co-headliner, where the sport’s pound-for-pound king, Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, rematches Henry Cejudo for the flyweight title. Johnson has not tasted defeat since 2011 while racking up 11 straight title defenses along the way. One of those defenses came against Cejudo at UFC 197, where Johnson stopped the Olympic gold medalist with vicious knees to the body.
The 12-fight event takes place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and kicks off with three bouts streaming on UFC Fight Pass at 6:30 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary-card fights 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.
