The Ultimate Fighting Championship makes its third trip to Minnesota on Saturday, June 29 with UFC on ESPN 3 at the Target Center in Minneapolis. It is the promotion’s first trip to Minnesota since October 2012 with an event that featured a heavyweight bout between Travis Browne and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
This time around, heavyweights also receive top billing with former title contender Francis Ngannou taking on former champion Junior dos Santos. In the co-main event, top flyweight contenders Joseph Benavidez and Jussier Formiga go toe-to-toe.
The event was initially set to be headlined by a welterweight fight between former champions Tyron Woodley and Robbie Lawler, but Woodley withdrew from the bout due to injury.
Ahead of Saturday’s event — which will air in its entirety on ESPN — all fighters had to step onto the scale for the official weigh-ins at the host hotel.
