UFC Fight Night 81 posterThe Ultimate Fighting Championship looks to continue a strong start to 2016 later this month (Sunday, January 17) with a thrilling free event which features a bantamweight title bout as well as a battle of top lightweight contenders. The bantamweight title bout features champion TJ Dillashaw against challenger and former champ Dominick Cruz. Cruz never lost the belt, but was instead stripped of his title after suffering multiple devastating knee injuries. He has only fought once since 2011, but looked very impressive in destroying Takeya Mizugaki in the first round. Dillashaw took the title from Renan Barao and has defended it twice, most recently beating Barao again in dominant fashion. The lightweight contender bout features former champion Anthony Pettis against former Bellator champ Eddie Alvarez. Both men are still in their athletic primes and are looking to potentially earn a crack at the UFC title. Pettis in particular could get right back in the picture with a win. Also on tap will be some very fun scraps between Matt Mitrione and Travis Browne as well as a lightweight bout between veterans Ross Pearson and Francisco Trinaldo. Oddsmaker Nick Kalikas opened the betting lines for UFC Fight Night 81’s full card today at 5Dimes Sportsbook. The main card starts at 10pm ET. ——————– UFC Fight Night 81: Dillashaw vs. Cruz January 17, 2016 | TD Garden | Boston, Massachusetts MAIN CARD FOX Sports 1, 10 p.m. ET *Bantamweight Title* Dominick Cruz +120 T.J.
