UFC 209 Predictions and Betting Odds

The UFC 209 fight card is set and the promotion’s first pay-per-view event of 2017 takes place on Saturday in Las Vegas.

Headlining the show is the welterweight title rematch between Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson, while Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson square off in a No. 1 contenders bout at 155 pounds.

In the UFC 209 co-main event, Woodley will look to repeat his performance from last November when he outlasted Thompson to earn a majority draw at UFC 205. The champion landed several power punches and was able to take Thompson down on multiple occasions. Woodley appeared to be moments away from finishing off his opponent in round four, but Thompson was able to survive and get back up to his feet.

For both fighters, this will be their first action since that November clash. Woodley (16-3-1 MMA, 6-2-1 UFC) will attempt to defend his title in enemy territory as he fights out of St. Louis with training partners like middleweight champ Michael Bisping in California. Thompson (13-1-1 MMA, 8-1-1 UFC) has not lost since April 2012 when he dropped a decision against Matt Brown at UFC 145.

UFC 209 is finally upon us. After a lackluster UFC 208, the UFC will try to get back on track with a solid pay-per-view card topped by a welterweight title rematch between Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson. It will be the promotion’s first major card of the year, and it’ll air on Saturday night from Las Vegas.

There are other fights on the card, too, of course. Here’s everything you need to know about UFC 209:
