UFC Fight Night 80 Preview

December 9, 2015

Welcome to the heart of the UFC season. It’s never too late to get things going and this week is a prime example of that with a fight night, a big TUF 22 finale and Jose Aldo versus Conor McGregor as the superfight capping all of it off. The show starts on Thursday Night with UFC Fight Night 80 and the return of Paige VanZant.

VanZant has taken the strawweight division by storm, but this fight is a step up in competition and will really show if she’s ready for the big time. Rose Namajunas, even though taking this fight on short notice is a tough out for Van Zandt. They are both touted as the next big things, so the winner of this fight will be the one surging up the rankings.

Sage Northcutt is on this card and all eyes will be on him as well. He takes on Cody Pfister and at the ripe age of 19, he may just be the next big thing in the lightweight division. The up and comers on this card are what makes it amazing.

Best of the rest:

Jim Miller against Michael Chiesa in a lightweight showdown.

Elias Theodorou versus Thiago Santos in a middleweight contest.

You can catch UFC Fight Night 80 on UFC Fight Pass starting at 6:45 ET for the preliminary card and 10pm for the main card.
