A wild 24 hours leading up to UFC 209 on Saturday night will pay off when welterweight champion Tyron Woodley steps into the Octagon with Stephen Thompson for the second time.
Co-main event participant Khabib Nurmagomedov was pulled from his interim lightweight bout with Tony Ferguson after being hospitalized prior to the weigh-in, so there was a minor shakeup in the bout order but a championship bout still brings us home to finish off the night.
The main card also features the return of former champion Rashad Evans, along with a heavyweight slugfest between Alistair Overeem and the heavy-handed Mark Hunt.
