Fights on Tap is a weekly roundup of all the fights booked inside the UFC, Bellator and other promotions.

UFC 277 is on Saturday! Julianna Peña defends her bantamweight championship against Amanda Nunes in a much-anticipated rematch, and Brandon Moreno returns for an duration in-between flyweight determine battle against Kai Kara-France. Sounds superb, right kind? Alternatively forward of we get to that pay-per-view event, let’s check out what we now have now ahead people on the upcoming schedule.

The UFC each presented or finalized 18 fights this week, and the spotlight is on the bantamweights this autumn.

Given its recent additions, UFC 280 is already some of the essential stacked events of the year. Changing into a member of the lineup is a championship battle between Aljamain Sterling and TJ Dillashaw, and the wild card that is Petr Yan vs. Sean O’Malley (significantly, who spotted this one coming?). Contemporary off his first coverage against Yan at UFC 273 this earlier April, Sterling meets Dillashaw, the former two-time champion who earned his championship selection with a get a divorce selection over Cory Sandhagen at UFC Vegas 32 a year previously.

Yan is also in movement for the main time since losing to Sterling, as he prepares to share the Octagon with the ‘Sugar Show’. O’Malley in recent years fought Pedro Munhoz to a No Contest after an accidental eye poke left the Brazilian now not in a position to continue at UFC 276 in July.
