UFC Schedule November 2017: Upcoming UFC Fights & Events







The UFC has big things planned for the month of November and fans all over the world should be glued to their TVs. The UFC has four big events including several title fights as well as being able to see legends such as Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre fight once more. The schedule starts off with a bang as UFC 217 as the event could potentially have the best all-around fight card of the year. Fans can see Cody Garbrandt and Michael Bisping defend their titles via pay-per-view and also see former champions like Fabricio Werdum fight on regular cable. It will truly be a glorious month for huge MMA fans.

UFC 217

Date: Saturday, November 4, 2017
Main Card Time: 10:00 P.M. ET
Location: New York City, New York
TV Channel: UFC Fight Pass
UFC 217 is easily has one of the most highly entertaining fight cards of all time. It is stacked with several title fights and elite MMA fighters. When Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson (13-2-1) is in the first fight on the card, it is a good way of showing how stacked a particular card is.


UFC 217 has two title fights that are going to headline the event:
The first is a Bantamweight title fight between T.J. Dillashaw (14-3) and Cody Garbrandt (11-0). Dillashaw, the former UFC Bantamweight champion, will look to regain the title after losing it to Dominick Cruz back in 2016. Dillashaw will look to use his diverse striking and underrated ground game to blemish the undefeated record of the current champion. Garbrandt, the current UFC Bantamweight champion, took the organization by storm since his UFC debut in 2015. He is truly a knockout machine and has won nine fights via knockout including seven in the first round. He recently won the belt from Dominick Cruz in a dominating fashion and destroyed the former champion for the majority of the fight. Expect Dillashaw to take the fight to the ground because Garbrandt has the elite striking and power to end this fight at any time.
The second title fight is in the Middleweight division and features the highly anticipated return of Georges St-Pierre (25-2). St-Pierre has been sidelined from UFC action since 2013 due to a torn ACL as well as a contract issue with UFC President Dana White. Before his absence, St-Pierre successfully defended his UFC Welterweight title nine times and was on pace to potentially be the greatest MMA fighter of all time. Now he looks to become the Middleweight champion where he will be forced to take on Michael Bisping (30-7). Bisping has been the Middleweight champion since June of 2016 and currently has a five fight winning streak. However, Bisping has been recovering from a serious foot injury and has not fought in over a year. Both of these fighters have not been in the octagon for a long time so one truly has no idea what to expect. In my opinion, I think St-Pierre wins the belt and restores his former glory.

UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs. Pettis

Date: Saturday, November 11, 2017
Time: 10:00 P.M. ET
Location: Norfolk, Virginia
TV Channel: FS1


On November 11, former Lightweight champion Anthony “Showtime” Pettis (20-6) will fight Dustin Poirier (21-5) in what should be a highly entertaining contest. Both fighters are extremely powerful and have a ton of knockout victories in their respective careers. Pettis, however, is also an elite submission artist and I expect him to display those skills against Poirier. Pettis should be able to take the fight to the ground at some point. If he successfully manages to do so, I expect Pettis to win via submission

UFC Fight Night: Werdum vs. Tybura

Date: Saturday, November 18, 2017
Time: 10:00 P.M. ET
Location: Sydney, Australia
TV Channel: FS1


This UFC Fight Night is headlined by one of the greatest submission artists in UFC history as Fabicio Werdum (22-7-1) will fight against Marcin Tybura (16-2). Wedrum is coming off of a submissiont victory against UFC Heavyweight contender Walt Harris (10-6) and will look to win again in Australia. As for Tybura, he is a relative unknown who has not fought against upper level competition during the early part of his career. Tybura has been busy fighting overseas in Europe in various MMA leagues so he has not yet fought against UFC competition. Tybura did beat former UFC Heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski in his last fight but Arlovski is no where near the fighter that he used to be. If Tybura can pull off the upset, look for him to become a contender in the immediate future.

UFC Fight Night: Silva vs. Gastelum

Date: Saturday, November 25, 2017
Time: TBD
Location: Shanghai, China
TV Channel: UFC Fight Pass


This UFC Fight Night will feature a Middleweight contest between former UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva (34-8) and Kelvin Gastelum (13-3). Silva is probably the greatest Middleweight in UFC history and successfully defending his Middleweight belt for a record ten times from 2007-2012. Known for his knockout power and unorthodox strikes, Silva has already become a UFC legend and will look to win his 35th fight at the age of 42. His opponent is none other than Kelvin Gastelum who is known around the UFC for his elite striking and submissions. Gastelum is coming off of a loss to Chris Weidman (14-3) where he was submitted in the third round. This fight has the makings of a slugfest that can go anybody’s way due to the elite striking of both fighters. This fight is truly a toss-up and should be pretty even throughout.
