The UFC had another superfight in the works, trying to match bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw against flyweight titlist Demetrious Johnson. But when those plans didn't come together, the promotion still put the two on the same fight card, both in rematches.
Dillashaw will headline UFC 227 on Saturday, Aug. 4, in Los Angeles, defending his 135-pound belt against the man he won it from, Cody Garbrandt. Johnson puts his 125-pound strap on the line in the co-main event, a rematch with Henry Cejudo.
Alexander Gustafsson was scheduled to face Volkan Oezdemir on the card, but that light heavyweight showdown was canceled after Oezdemir pulled out with an injury. Still on the undercard: a strawweight bout between Polyana Viana and JJ Aldrich; and Cub Swanson against fellow featherweight Renato Moicano.
Whose night will it be?
