UFC released the official goosepimple inducing trailer for their upcoming International Fight Week PPV on July 7th on their YouTube page just moments ago and it’s definitely one that we’d file under the very good to great category.
This is one of those events that will celebrate four of the nicest guys in the sport being featured in two of the most anticipated and evenly match title fights on paper that you’ll ever see.
Also on the card, a good old fashioned heavyweight slug fest — that you’ll want to bet the under on as far as rounds go if you’re degenerates like us — between Francis Ngannou and Derrick Lewis will be worth the price of admission alone. A rescheduled lightweight bout between Michael Chiesa and Anthony Pettis and a light heavyweight duel between K-1 legend Gokhan Saki and Khalil Rountree will round out this super stacked PPV.
