UFC Fight Night 82: Complete Card, Start Times

ufc fight night 82

What a weird and interesting past few weeks for the UFC Fight Night 82 card – or the one that was previously entitled UFC 196.

First, Cain Velasquez pulled out of the planned UFC heavyweight title fight main event with Fabricio Werdum. Stipe Miocic stepped in, but shortly after, Werdum exited the card.

We are left with an event set to air live on FOX Sports 1 instead of pay-per-view this Saturday night with former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks facing Stephen Thompson from Las Vegas and the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Along with Hendricks-Thompson, Roy Nelson takes on Jared Rosholt in a heavyweight affair, while Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante battles Ovince Saint Preux at light heavyweight.

The FS1 main card, which begins at 10 p.m. ET, opens with flyweights Joseph Benavidez and Zach Makovsky.

All the action starts at 6 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass before shifting over to FS1 for the remainder of the night at 8 p.m. ET. Veterans Josh Burkman and KJ Noons collide in the main prelim bout.

Below is the complete lineup, along with a video promo:
