UFC back in Minnesota this weekend


The UFC comes back to Minneapolis on Saturday for UFC Fight Night at the Target Center, as Heavyweights Junior Dos Santos (21-5) and Francis Ngannou (13-3) headline the main event. A potential title shot on the line, as Ngannou has won two straight bouts including a knockout of future UFC Hall of Famer Cain Velasquez in his last fight. The former heavyweight champ Dos Santos has won 3 fights in a row.

The co-main event features two fighters itching for a chance at Henry Cejudo’s Flyweight belt. Joseph Benevidez faces Jussier Formiga in a 2013 rematch that Benevidez won by 1st round TKO. Formiga has won 4 fights in a row while Benevidez has won 2 straight.

Former #1 Contender Damien Maia looks for his second straight win as he faces Anthony Rocco Martin.

AM 1100 The Flag Sports Director Alex Benzegala will be at the Target Center with live updates on Flag Sports Central Facebook and Twitter. The Prelims start at 5 pm and the main card begins at 8 pm.
