Only St. Pierre has a fight currently booked, and it doesn't have a date.In the main event, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson meet in a rematch four months after their entertaining majority draw. Moments before that, rising stars Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov will have one of the year's most anticipated bouts for the interim lightweight championship.If two title fights aren't enough, the pay-per-view portion of the card leads off with veteran heavyweights Mark Hunt and Alistair Overeem. Hunt happens to be currently suing the UFC, president Dana White and Lesnar, alleging racketeering and fraud in the circumstances around his fight last July at UFC 200 against Lesnar, who subsequently failed a doping test.Nurmagomedov has never lost, and the Dagestani-born fighter has rarely been seriously threatened during his first eight UFC fights.The 33-year-old Ferguson has won nine consecutive fights with an exciting, versatile style, and he shares a mutual disdain with Nurmagomedov.
