UFC on ESPN 2 is taking place this upcoming Saturday in Philadelphia, US. The event will be the third that the promotion has contested in Philadelphia and the first since UFC 133 in August 2011.
In the main event of the evening, the lightweights Edson Barboza (20-6) and Justin Gaethje (19-2) are about to face each other. This will be Gaethje’s fifth bout under UFC banner and he’ll be trying to get his 3rd win. Barboza, on the other hand, is a UFC vet competing for the organization ever since 2010. Last December the Brazilian defeated Dan Hooker via KO in the third round.
In the co-main event, former two-division WSOF champion David Branch (22-5) looks to get back to winning ways against Jack Hermansson (18-4), who is coming off back-to-back victories.
