The UFC’s last event of the year doesn’t have the luster of the usual NYE cards, but there are a lot of good fights set for the December 30th card in Las Vegas. While there’s no Conor McGregor, there is still a title fight – Cris Cyborg will defend her women’s featherweight title against former bantamweight champion Holly Holm.
In the co-main event, Khabib Nurmagomedov will make his eagerly-awaited return, taking on Edson Barboza in a fight that could decide the next title challenger (whether it be against McGregor or interim champ Tony Ferguson).
Speaking of top contenders, Jimmie Rivera will try to get closer to a title shot at 135 when he meets hard hitting John Lineker. Carlos Condit will make his return against Neil Magny. And Cynthia Calvillo will look for her fifth win of 2017 (fourth in the UFC) when she meets former 115-pound champ Carla Esparza.
Here’s a look at the current card. The UFC hasn’t decided on a bout order yet, and the card currently only has 10 bouts. That might change before Christmas.
