With 2016 behind us, we take a look at the UFC‘s next event, which has young talents, possible future champions and a returning legend on display.
The card is packed with talent but here are just a few to look out for.
This fight is one of the most anticipated fights that has already been announced in 2017.
It features the returning legend, BJ Penn, who looks to give it one last push at a serious title run, facing off against one of the most unorthodox strikers currently in the UFC, Yair Rodriguez. The young Mexican looks to continue his impressive career in the UFC with a win over the veteran that will be standing across from him.
Other notable fighters competing on the card are.
Veteran Lightweight, Joe Lauzon, who, although winning only 2 of his last 5 fights, is a competitor who is nothing less than outstanding when at his best and his bout with Marcin Held is sure to not disappoint.
The two Bantamweight stars are looking to fight their way into the title race and one or two more wins could shoot them right into contention.
A lot of UFC talent is on display and ready to raise the bar for an exciting start to 2017.
