Tonight we will finally find out who is the better fighter between Stephen Thompson and Tyron Woodley. The two men fought last year to a five round draw and both want to cement their legacies tonight with a win at UFC 209 in Las Vegas. Woodley has been telling everyone who will listen that he is getting no respect while Woodley has gone about his business quietly and wants to get a big knockout. The interim lightweight title fight has been scratched due to an issue with Khabib Nurmagomedov and a bad weight cut. The show is still pretty solid and also features Mark Hunt against Alistair Overeem.
The main card which starts at 10 p.m. ET will feature welterweight champion Tyron Woodley vs Stephen Thpmson, David Teymur vs. Lando Vannata, Rashad Evans vs. Daniel Kelly, Cynthia Calvillo vs. Amanda Cooper and Mark Hunt vs. Alistair Overeem to start the pay per view.
The undercard of the show will be shown live and for free on Fox Sports 1 at 8. Fox Sports 1 will show Luis Henrique vs. Marcin Tybura, Mirsad Bektic vs. Darren Elkins, Iuri Alcantara vs. Luke Sanders and Mark Godbeer vs. Daniel Spitz.
Fight Pass will stream Paul Craig vs. Tyson Pedro and Albert Morales vs. Andre Soukhamthath beginning at 7:30 PM ET.
