Sure, there are two big title fights at the top of the lineup. But what might be falling under the radar at UFC 270?
Heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou (16-3 MMA, 11-2 UFC) takes on interim champ Ciryl Gane (10-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) in a title unification bout in the main event. And flyweight champ Brandon Moreno (19-5-2 MMA, 7-2-2 UFC) meets Deiveson Figueiredo (20-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) in a trilogy rematch in the co-feature.
But are we looking past the potential highlight reel Michel Pereira (26-11 MMA, 4-2 UFC) could provide? How about Said Nurmagomedov (14-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) vs. Cody Stamann (19-4-1 MMA, 5-3-1 UFC) in a bantamweight barnburner on the main card?
