The Ultimate Fighting Championship is making a highly anticipated debut on Denmark soil this Saturday! The event will take place on September 28, 2019, in the beautiful city of Copenhagen, Denmark! Join us as we’re bringing you the live UFC results from the stacked Royal Arena!
The main event will see the home town favorite Jack Hermansson trying to earn a contender spot by making a strong statement against the heavy-handed Jared Cannonier (12-4-0). Riding on the four-fight winning streak, Hermansson is no longer considered a prospect; he is a future title challenger! This Saturday, he will be under the enormous pressure to deliver in front of the home crowd and get into the title mixture. On the other hand, after dropping down in weight, Jared Cannonier has finally found the perfect form. Coming from the TKO victories over David Branch and Anderson Silva, Cannonier is also a couple of victories away from the contender position and desperately needs a win to keep the momentum going.
