After months of anticipation, UFC 226 is, finally, almost upon us.
The card, which features two co-main events and several undercard fights with premiere fighters who have headlined past UFC pay-per-view events, is being acknowledged as one of the most well-rounded and talented in the history of the sport.
The total card features 11 fights – five on the main card, six on the preliminary card, which is split into three fights each, with three on UFC Fight Pass and three on FS1. There are two title fights, both co-main events, and two undefeated fighters (Brian Ortega and Paulo Costa) stepping into the Octagon on Saturday night.
