Bengaluru, January 14: The Ultimate Fighting Championship heads to St Louis on Sunday (January 14) to kick off 2018 with UFC Fight Night: Stephens vs. Choi held at Scottrade Center in Missouri, United States.
Jeremy Stephens meets Dooho Choi at featherweight in the main event, while originally scheduled co-main event between middleweights Vitor Belfort and Uriah Hall was canceled.
Just 24 hours before Belfort's retirement bout it was announced that Hall did not make it to the weigh-in because he suffered seizures from aggressive weight-cutting methods.
However, we still have a tasty welterweight scrap between the undefeated Kamaru Usman and Emil Meek, and a women's flyweight bout between the returning Paige VanZant against Jessica-Rose Clark.
While the standout fight on the preliminary card between Darren Elkins and Michael Johnson in the featherweight was moved to the main card.
Even on the preliminary card there is plenty to look forward to, with a couple of lightweight bouts, James Krause takes on Alex White, while Matt Frevola meets Marco Polo. Plus, three bouts from the women's division.
