MANILA--UFC has found a new home in Fox+.
And this colossal partnership dishes a series of bigger and more intense match-ups brewing in the premier mixed martial arts sport organization today.
Fight fans and Fox+ subscribers are in for a treat as the video-streaming service kicks off with a key Middleweight title fight between Robert Whittaker and Kelvin Gastelum in UFC 234 on Feb. 10.
Whittaker, the UFC undisputed middleweight champion, is currently tearing the division apart. Standing on his way of total dominance is a young and hungry contender in Gastelum.
Gastelum, who is fresh off back to back victories over former champion Michael Bisping and Ronaldo Souza, is expected to put up a great fight.
He is coming in as an underdog going into the fight, and even pull off an upset win.
Sports analysts are predicting it as a "fight of the night" in the making.
