We are all used to Dana White and the UFC management paying attention to the wishes of the fans and making the right fights that the fans are interested in. This has been the case since the beginning of the rise of social networks and is one of the essential reasons why the UFC organization has expanded so rapidly in the last decade.
All the time, the UFC administration follows the wishes of fans of MMA sports and fighting in the cage, and makes matches based on their wishes. A great policy of the UFC organization that resulted in the great popularity of UFC fights.
Tony Ferguson vs Paddy Pimblett who wouldn't want to watch this match, it really promises a great fight
Another great news came from Dana White. The UFC has once again arranged great fights for the end of the year. Tony Ferguson (39, 25-9) will try to bounce back against Paddy Pimblett (28, 20-3).
Their fight is scheduled for December as part of the UFC 296 event, which is scheduled for December 16. Ferguson is on a six-game losing streak and a potential fight loss could be the last bout for the former interim lightweight champion.
On the other hand, Pimblett is coming back from surgery, and his last match was against Jarred Gordon, whom he defeated in a controversial match. Surely this match will arouse a lot of interest because it is about two fighters with a large fan base, probably the 2 most popular fighters of the last two to three years.
After Dana White announced this match, the entire MMA public is excited and can't wait to see Ferguson against Paddy. Paddy is a rising star who promises great things, but we must not ignore Ferguson's experience, which can make a difference in the Octagon.
Another great welterweight bout between Shavkat Rakhmonov and Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson has been added to the show. Rakhmonov has quite a large fan base in Asia, a great UFC 296 card, no one expected such loud fights. This will be the icing on the cake at the end of 2023.
As a reminder, the event is headlined by the match between Leon Edwards and Colby Covington, and the bet is the welterweight belt.
