CURRENT RECORD: 186-114-1
UFC Fight Night 117 is live this weekend from Saitama, Japan. Headlining this card is a light-heavyweight contest between Ovince Saint Preux and late replacement and MMA veteran Yushin Okami. Acting as co-main event will be a woman’s strawweight clash between two former title challengers as Claudia Gadelha takes on Jessica Andrade. Elsewhere on the card there are fascinating match-ups between Takanori Gomi and Dong Hyun Kim; Gokhan Saki makes his UFC debut against Henrique da Silva, while Jussier Formiga will battle it out with Ulka Sasaki. Another interesting night of fights, so be sure to be tuned in so you don’t miss out.
