UFC moves from very hot Las Vegas to another sunny location – San Diego, California. The UFC fight card this weekend will take place next to the Mexican border, and it brings a lot of entertaining clashes. There aren’t many super-famous names at UFC San Diego, but don’t judge the book by its cover, as UFC Fight Night: Santos Vs Hill was one of the most superb cards in the history of the promotion – ten stoppages in ten bouts!
This UFC fight card is headlined by the clash between footwork king and the former bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz and dangerous elbow specialist and BJJ phenom from Ecuador, Marlon Vera.
Coming to you from sunny Southern California, #UFCSanDiego fight week starts NOW!

UFC Full Fight Card
There were two cancellations on the last weekend’s card, so Ariane Lipski vs Priscila Cachoeira and Jason Witt vs Josh Quinlan were postponed and moved to San Diego. Lipski didn’t hit the scale, so let’s hope she’ll be on point this time.

What Can I Expect From UFC San Diego?
The upcoming event will tell us whether Dominick Cruz can still fight for the belt. After back-to-back knee surgeries, the former champ is trying to reclaim the 135-pound division strap.
The first-ever UFC fighter from Uganda, David Onama, will fish for another knockout victory against very tough Octagon warrior and dangerous puncher Nate Landwehr. This scrap might end before the final bell too.
Meerschaert vs Silva is another eye-catching bout, as a submission specialist meets a devastating striker. The most interesting fight in the prelims is a heavyweight scrap between Slovakian prospect Martin Buday and tricky Polish fighter Lukasz Brzecki.
The upcoming UFC Fight Night: Vera Vs Cruz fight card might bring a lot of stoppages. This Saturday could turn into another night of great battles! Let's hope there will be top-notch finishes, bloody and battered wars, and superb performances! Sit next to your device on Saturday at 4 PM ET and enjoy!
