We are coming off one hell of a week in MMA. All three major promotions filled our weekend chock-full of fights. On Sunday night we saw the next title fight in the featherweight division fully come to fruition when Conor McGregor defeated Denis Siver and then subsequently jumped out of the cage and into the crowd to confront Jose Aldo. That seems like a huge event doesn’t it? Well this weekend we have one that is even bigger.

UFC

The UFC will take their first trip over seas in 2015 this weekend when they hold their fourteenth Saturday night event on Fox. It will be the first time that the UFC hold one of these events outside of the United States. Over thirty thousand people will fill a stadium in Sweden to watch their countryman, Alexander Gustafsson, try to earn another title shot against Jon Jones when he faces Anthony Johnson. Dan Henderson will also return to the middleweight division on this card when he faces Gegard Mousasi, and the fantasy matchmaker in all of us will see the fight that we have been making for years when Phil Davis faces Ryan Bader. The card will be in the middle of the night in Sweeden, but we get to watch a bit earlier at the traditional Fox card time of 8 p.m. ET. Let’s take a look at the full card below.
