Looks like we're pulling an all nighter?
The first UFC Fight Pass card in ages features some recognizable names and intriguing matchups, with a trio of former champions badly in need of wins atop the fight card.
Sure, the overseas start time is a bit of downer, but the combination of #HollyHolm, #AndreiArlovski, and #RafaelDosAnjos, along with a crop of the UFC's Asian regional standouts gives the card legitimate appeal.
For Holm, the main event against Bethe Correia comes at a pivotal crossroads in her career. Once the UFC champion who famously dethroned #RondaRousey, Holm has since dropped three-straight bouts. A victory over Correia is a must if Holm intends to continue fighting in the UFC.
Rafael dos Anjos arrives in his second home of SIngapore -- he trains annually at #EvolveMMA -- riding a two fight skid. Fortunately for the former lightweight champ, his upcoming bout against #TarecSaffiedine represents a new era, as RDA makes his welterweight debut.
Beyond the former champions, UFC Singapore features a key welterweight bout between top-10 stalwart Dong Hyun Kim and Colby Covington, who's looking to make a statement and crack the top 15.
A lightweight contest between #PRIDE legend Takanori Gomi and John Tuck tops the prelims, with notable appearances from #TheUltimateFighter vetertan "Bruce Leroy" #AlexCaceres, and China's top MMA export, Li JingLiang, who's looking to make it three straight inside the Octagon.
