If you are a UFC fan, you won’t want to miss the live stream of UFC 285 tonight. It’s one of the biggest events in recent UFC history, featuring two title fights, the return of Jon Jones at heavyweight, and many of the best upcoming prospects in the sport today.
Jones, the former UFC light heavyweight champion and arguably the best fighter ever, will face Ciryl Gane, the former interim UFC heavyweight champion and the #1 contender in the division. They will fight for the undisputed heavyweight title that is currently vacant.
Jones has a phenomenal record of 26-1-1 and has won 14 title fights. He has not fought since February 2020, when he beat Dominick Reyes to keep his light heavyweight title. Now he wants to conquer another division and cement his legacy.
Gane has an impressive record of 11-1 with five knockouts. He earned his shot at the undisputed title by knocking out Derrick Lewis in August 2021. He wants to make history by being the first man to finish Jones.
The co-main event also features a title fight, as flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko defends her belt against Alexa Grasso. Shevchenko is one of the most dominant champions in UFC history, with a record of 23-3 and seven title defenses. She has not lost since 2017, when she fought Amanda Nunes for the bantamweight title.
Grasso is a former strawweight who moved up to flyweight in 2020 and has won four straight fights since then. She got her title shot by beating Viviane Araujo by unanimous decision in December 2021. She hopes to stun the world and take Shevchenko’s belt.
The main card also includes Bo Nickal, a three-time D-1 National Champion wrestler, making his UFC debut against Jamie Pickett at middleweight. Fast-rising prospect Shavkat Rakhmonov also faces Geoff Neal on the main card.
The prelims feature Cody Garbrandt’s return to bantamweight, where he meets Trevin Jones. Dricus Du Plessis will look to continue his win streak in the UFC when he faces Derek Brunson.
