UFC 270: Fight Card, Schedule & TV info

Bengaluru, January 20: The Ultimate Fighting Championship kick off their first numbered event of 2022 with two highly anticipated rivalries in world title bouts in the headliner of this weekend's UFC 270: Ngannou vs. Gane.

In the main event of the stacked UFC 270 card, UFC world heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou aims for his first successful title defense on the back of 13 KOs in 16 wins - five of those in his incredible win streak.

Ngannou will face former teammate and interim champion Ciryl Gane, who has wasted no time rising through the ranks as an undefeated fighter with four KOs and three submissions.

In the co-main event, UFC world flyweight champion and former champion Deiveson Figueiredo are now 1-1 in two incredible title matches. The flyweight finishers will wrap up their rivalry once and for all with a trilogy fight for the ages - and the UFC flyweight belt.

Also on the main card, Michel Pereira faces UFC newcomer Andre Fialho in a highly anticipated welterweight bout, while No. 15 ranked bantamweight contender Cody Stamann squares off with rising Said Nurmagomedov.

In the potential main card opener, Tervin Giles and Michael Morales clash at welterweight right after Raoni Barcelos takes on Victor Henry in an exciting bantamweight matchup to close the preliminary card.

Meanwhile, the prelims will also see bantamweights Tony Gravely and Saimon Oliveira do battle, plus Dana White's Contender Series contract winner Jack Della Maddalena face fellow UFC newcomer Pete Rodriguez.

Matt Frevola clashes with Genaro Valdez at lightweight in the prelims opener. The early prelims, on the other hand, will see the likes of Silvana Gomez Juarez, Vanessa Demopoulos, Kay Hansen and Jasmine Jasudavicius in action.
