UFC Fight Night 75 takes place in Saitama, Japan on Saturday Sept. 26, 2015.

Obviously, since the fight takes place in Japan, there are a ton of Japanese fighters on the card who will look to impress their hometown crowds.

However, the main event of the evening does not involve a Japanese fighter, but instead, both fighters representing the United States.

The main event features two USA fighters and two top heavyweights as well. The main event of the evening is #8 Josh Barnett vs. #11 Roy Nelson, which should hopefully provide some fireworks for those in attendance and watching around the globe.

Both fighters are ranked in the division and both fighters have had their fair share of shining moments in the UFC.

Josh Barnett is coming off of a first round TKO loss to Travis Browne. It was a loss that set Barnett backwards, as he was coming off of a huge victory over Frank Mir. Barnett will be looking to get back on track against Nelson.

Nelson has not had the UFC career many have expected of him and is coming off of two straight losses and has lost four of his last five. This is a huge fight for Nelson and he needs to prove that he can still be relevant in the heavyweight division.

Barnett vs. Nelson is not the only fight on this card so here is what to watch for at UFC Fight Night 75.

Who Will Show They Deserve to Be In A Top Ten Heavyweight?

Like I mentioned before, the main event is two top heavyweights going to war. This is a big fight for both of these fighters and a loss could make them start to be forgotten in the division. They both need to win to show that they deserve to be a top ten heavyweight in the UFC.

Can Uriah Hall Finally Reach His Full Potential?

Hall is coming off of a much-needed first round TKO victory over Oluwale Bamgbose. Many feel the Hall has a huge ceiling of potential, but has been lurking around his floor instead. He seems to have his mindset right this time around, so he decided to make a quick turnaround and take on #6 Gegard Mousasi. This is easily the biggest fight of Hall’s career and if he can win this fight, maybe we can finally see the Uriah Hall we all expected to see.

Can Kyoji Horiguchi Bounce Back?

Horiguchi is coming off of a loss to arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in Demetrious Johnson. Horiguchi is no slouch and was on a four-fight win streak before the loss. It will be interesting to see if he can bounce back after his loss.
