Tonight 8pm on Fox, the UFC will hold a fight card in Chicago featuring Benson "Smooth" Henderson vs. Josh "The Punk" Thomson. This card isn't just all about Henderson vs. Thomson, this card has multiple fights that has some value to it and here they are.
1) Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Stipe Miocic- This fight is an important fight because the winner of this fight will be 1 or 2 fights away from getting a title shot. Both fighters are top 10 heavyweights in the UFC so its not 2 bums fighting each other.
2) Benson Henderson vs. Josh Thomson- this fight has the most importance out of all the fights on the UFC card, Even Though it's the main event this fight has the potential of giving the winner a immediate title shot and the loser a trip to the middle of the line.
3) Sergio Pettis vs. Alex Caceres- You will not be able to see the this fight on the FOX card Since this fight is on the undercard it will probably be on Fox Sports 1. This fight does have some importance because Sergio Pettis is a very good prospect and this will be his 2nd fight in the UFC. This fight can give us a clue if Pettis is good or not because Caceres is a good fighter that can give Pettis a good test.
Overall this card is not all that good compared to most UFC on Fox cards. This has been a recurring issue with the UFC because they are increasing the number of fight cards and as a result the cards are getting more and more mediocre.
Hopefully this card later tonight will deliver big time.
