How To Watch UFC 231 PPV Event
UFC returns to business with its UFC 231 Pay-Per-View event, with two intriguing title fights which take place tonight (Sat., Dec. 8, 2018) from inside Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The main event features the featherweight title fight between divisions’ kingpin Max Holloway, who’s returning to Octagon after a year hiatus, to defend his strap versus the undefeated challenger Brian ‘T City’ Ortega.
Meanwhile, in the co-headliner, former bantamweight title contender Valentina Shevchenko who’s squaring off against former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk for the vacant UFC flyweight gold. Shevchenko already beat ‘Joanna Champion’ multiple times under the Muay Thai rules dated back from 2006.
The flyweight belt was confiscated from inaugural winner Nicco Montano when she failed to make it to her first defense versus ‘The Bullet’ earlier this year.
Some more great action in the main card including Alex ‘Cowboy’ Oliveira vs. Gunnar Nelson for a welterweight clash, Hakeem Dawodu vs. Kyle Bochniak will meet for featherweight showdown, and Jimi Manuwa vs. Thiago Santos will go down for a light heavyweight show.
