UFC 232 is scheduled for Saturday, December 29th and it could be the best card of 2018. The card features the return of Jon Jones against Alexander Gustafsson, and the battle to determine the best female fighter ever between Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes. 

Jones and Gustafsson last fought five years ago and are fighting for the UFC light heavyweight championship. This marks the first fight for Jones after being suspended for 15 months for a failed drug test.

The co-main event at UFC 232 is a super fight featuring the two best female fighters in history. Cyborg has been the most dominant women in MMA for more than a decade. Nunes has held the women’s bantamweight title since July 2016, hasn’t lost a fight in more than 4 years and has defeated fighters including Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate. 

Here are some venues around the Valley that will be showing the fights.
