The Ultimate Fighting Championship has several more intriguing bouts booked for 2016 already, including an upcoming main event for UFC on Fox 19, which takes place later this spring (April 16, 2016) at a yet to be determined venue and location. The event will be headlined by a lightweight clash between top contenders Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Ferguson is on a huge seven-fight win streak in the UFC while Nurmagomedov is still undefeated at 22-0 including a dominant decision victory over current champion Rafael dos Anjos in his last fight nearly two years ago. The winner will almost certainly be receiving a 155 pound title shot. Also on tap will be an upcoming light heavyweight battle between former champions Rashad Evans and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. Both fighters are getting up there in terms of age and fight years and seem to be in a decline, but they still have plenty of drawing power and this is a fight the UFC has been trying to make happen for over five years. Another bout to keep an eye on at the event is the battle between surging lightweight contenders Michael Chiesa and Beneil Dariush will be throwing down. Last but not least, the upcoming UFC Fight Night 88 event will be headlined by a welterweight clash between veteran contenders Demian Maia and Matt Brown in Brazil.
