UFC 219 is looking set to thrill on every level and this latest promo does a good job at reminding the fans they’re in for a treat come December 30.
For all the talk that condemned this year as one of the worst in the UFC’s recent history, the final third of 2017 has seen us gifted with some absolutely amazing events, both in the numbered fight cards, such as UFC 217 and UFC 218 and beyond.
There were some special nights and some special moments in the sport’s history over the course of the last few months but with one marquee event for us yet to experience, we still know full well that the year is far from over and that UFC 219 is among the most tantalising offerings we could have asked for.
Holly Holm will attempt to hand the fearsome featherweight champion Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino her first loss in a decade in the night’s main-event and though we’ve seen so many fighters crumble under the champ’s power and pressure in the past, those who know how skilled ‘the Preacher’s Daughter’ is, realise that she will offer her opponent a very different test when the octagon doors close.
Khabib Nurmagomedov will look to put the horrors of his UFC 209 weight-cut behind him as he takes on perhaps the most lethal finisher in the division, Edson Barboza, in the co-main event and if that wasn’t enough, after nearly two years on the sidelines, the long-time welterweight contender Carlos Condit will finally return to the octagon as he faces off against Neil Magny.
The last two numbered events set the bar extremely high for both this event and all others that follow it but with their latest promo for UFC 219, the promotion has done a good job at letting us know that the T-Mobile Arena could well be in for a classic.
