Main Event: Cowboy vs. Gaethje preview
A former lightweight title challenger and perennial fan favorite, Cerrone has delivered some of the most spectacular fights in UFC history. Throughout his storied career, he has netted thrilling victories over Al Iaquinta, Edson Barboza, Mike Perry, Matt Brown and Rick Story. Cerrone now looks to remain undefeated in Canada and continue his ascent up the 155-pound rankings against one of the division's most dangerous competitors.
Known as "The Highlight," Gaethje has proven to be among the most exciting fighters on the UFC roster. In only five appearances, he has taken home six Fight Night bonuses. During his UFC tenure, he has delivered incredible wins over Edson Barboza, Michael Johnson and James Vick. Gaethje now aims to earn his third consecutive victory over one of MMA's most respected athletes and further stake his claim as a lightweight title threat.
Co-main event: Teixeira vs. Krylov preview
A 17-year MMA veteran, Teixeira has fought the who's who of MMA. Known for his heavy hands and punishing grappling attack, he has picked up impressive victories against former UFC light heavyweight champions Rashad Evans and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Currently riding a two-fight win streak, he is now poised to stop yet another surging contender.
An unpredictable and dynamic finisher, Krylov has yet to go to a judges' decision in 32 MMA bouts. Equally dangerous with his striking as he is on the mat, Krylov has delivered highlight-reel finishes against Ovince Saint Preux, Ed Herman, Walt Harris, Francimar Barroso and Fabio Maldonado. He now hopes to use Teixeira as a stepping stone to crack the light heavyweight division's top 10.
