On Friday, Aug. 16, the UFC hosted the weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night 26: Shogun vs. Sonnen from the TD Garden in Boston. The promotion’s debut event on the newly-launched Fox Sports 1 network takes place Saturday, Aug. 17 at the same venue.

In the night’s main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will lock horns with multiple-time title challenger Chael Sonnen. The Brazilian Rua hopes to bounce back from a decision loss to current No. 1 contender Alexander Gustafsson in December, while Sonnen looks to snap a two-fight skid that included losses to Anderson Silva and Jon Jones.

The main card also features a heavyweight tilt between former Strikeforce champion Alistair Overeem and Travis Browne, a pivotal clash in the bantamweight division between Urijah Faber and Yuri Alcantara, welterweights Mike Pyle and Matt Brown, middleweights Uriah Hall and John Howard, and lightweights Joe Lauzon and Michael Johnson.

The 13-fight event kicks off at 4:30 p.m. ET with three bouts streaming on the promotion’s YouTube and Facebook pages. Four additional bouts follow on Fox Sports 1 at 6 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card starting at 8 p.m. ET.
