Writers Choice’s: UFC Fight Night Johnson vs Reis

After all the excitement of last weekend’s UFC 210 in Buffalo, New York, we get to do it all again, as the UFC returns to our screens on Saturday night, for UFC Fight Night in Kansas City.

The event sees the return of the best P4P fighter in the world and undefeated UFC flyweight champion, Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson, as he goes up against Wilson Reis, in what would be his tenth straight title defense.

But this is a card full of talent, as the women take center stage for the co-main event as Rose Namajunes will stand opposite the ‘Karate Hottie’ Michelle Waterson.

The rest of the main card is filled out with a highlight middleweight bout between Kiwi Robert Whittaker and Jacare Souza, and a featherweight bout between Jeremy Stephens and Renato Moicano, which will open the main card.

The prelims are kicked off by Da last Samurai Louis Smolka, as he looks to get one over Tim Elliott, who was last seen going up against Johnson, for winning TUF:Champions.

It will also see the UFC debut of French star Tom ‘The Firekid’ Duquesnoy, as he will stand face to face with Patrick Williams.

Inbetween these two fights there will be a lightweight bout between Bobby Green, and Rashid Magomedov, before the prelims are rounded out with a heavyweight bout between Alexander Volkov and ‘Big Country’ Roy Nelson.

So with another UFC card to wet our appetites, the staff at Chokehold MMA have made their picks for fights in the main card, and any other fights that appear on Chase Carle’s ‘3 fights not to miss’.
