The city of New Jersey will be a world fighting epicenter once again as the UFC makes its return to the Prudential Center for the eight-time and first since UFC on Fox: Johnson vs. Bader back in 2016. The event will be held this Saturday, August 3, and MMAIMPORTS is more than ready to deliver you live UFC results from both preliminary and main cards!
After he made a move to the ATT, Claudio Silva (13-1-0) firmly believes that it is his time to shine in the Welterweight division.

However, Williams will do everything he can to pull the upset and secure his status inside the organization.
