UFC Fight Night 126 Full Fights Replay
Even if the UFC’s fight cards have actually been fairly underwhelming up to this point in the year, there is a small twinkle of hope with the most recent Fight Night card offering on Sunday, Feb. 18. Emanating from the always-fun town of Austin, Texas, UFC Fight Night 126 features a centerpiece that must deliver the type of action that seems to have actually been missing from the majority of the UFC’s offerings so far in 2018.
Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, who is aiming to rebound from an unexpected first-round knockout loss to Darren Till in 2015, deals with Yancy Medeiros, who is coming off a “Fight of the Year”-deserving performance versus Alex Oliveira at UFC 218 in December. Cerrone remains in dire need of a win after 3 straight losses. Medeiros has actually won 3 in a row because moving up to the welterweight department.
The co-headliner is another story of fighters seeking to return on the right track. Derrick Lewis’s ascension up the heavyweight ladder was stopped rather absolutely by Mark Hunt. Marcin Tybura went the distance with previous UFC heavyweight champ Fabricio Werdum in his last fight, however the Polish fighter came up short. A triumph by either of these heavyweights could put them back on track for a possible heavyweight title fight.
This card highlights other fighters aiming to discover their way on a significantly congested UFC lineup, consisting of James Vick, Francisco Trinaldo, Thiago Alves, Jessica Aguilar and Sage Northcutt.
The action begins at 5:30 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass with 3 preliminary-card bouts. The Fox Sports 1 prelims start at 7 p.m. ET, and the primary card starts at 9 p.m. ET, also on FS1.
