Fight fans in Boston and the surrounding areas can purchase tickets to UFC on FS1: Shogun vs. Sonnen this week.
The event takes place August 17 from the TD Garden in Boston.
In the main event, Chael Sonnen takes on former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua. The co-headliner features Alistair Overeem and Travis Browne.
“We’re finally coming back to Boston and we’re bringing the most stacked card in UFC history,” UFC President Dana White said. “In the main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion Shogun Rua takes on Chael Sonnen, who once again stepped up and asked for a big fight. Then we have Alistair Overeem vs. Travis Browne in a heavyweight fight. Both of those guys have heavy hands, so I expect someone to get knocked out! The rest of the card is loaded with exciting fights, including Urijah Faber vs. Yuri Alcantara, Matt Brown vs. Thiago Alves, Boston’s Joe Lauzon vs. Michael Johnson, Uriah Hall vs. Nick Ring, and Irish superstar Conor McGregor vs. Andy Ogle.
