UFC 226 Pay-Per-View (PPV) event is set to go down Saturday night (July 7, 2018) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Things got little rough for this fight week after Max Holloway was forced out of his scheduled title defense against undefeated Brian Ortega due to concussion-like symptoms.
Then on Thursday at a pre-fight presser, there seemed to be a bit of a scary situation, this time involving the main event fight, When Daniel Cormier tripped on cable wires and suffered a nasty fall while getting off from his seat.
Promotion promoted the heavyweight knockout artists Francis Ngannou and Derrick Lewis to the co-main event.
Today things got bit heated when two heavyweight hulks squared off at today’s ceremonial weigh-ins, both traded barbs at each other, something didn’t sit well with Lewis who proceed to shove Ngannou, forcing Dana white to jump in and break the scene.
