UFC Fight Night 50 lineup set in Connecticut with six-fight main card on FOX Sports 1


MMA: UFC Fight Night-Jacare Souza vs Okami

Next month’s UFC return to Connecticut has its lineup set with 11 fights, including 10 televised bouts on FOX Sports 1.

UFC Fight Night 50 takes place Sept. 5, a rare Friday show, at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Conn. Six fights on the main card will air on FOX Sports 1 following four prelims on the channel. A lone prelim opens the event on UFC Fight Pass.

Tickets for the UFC’s first Connecticut show in nine years are available at Ticketmaster.com and start at $100, plus fees, and go up to $350 plus fees for a cageside seat.

The show will be headlined by a five-round middleweight matchup between Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (20-3 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Gegard Mouasi (35-4-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC). That matchup is a key contest at 185 pounds, as Souza is currently ranked No. 4 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA middleweight rankings, while Mousasi is No. 9. Souza also holds an Honorable Mention spot on the pound-for-pound list.

The main card also features a pair of heavyweight collisions as former Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem (37-13 MMA, 2-2 UFC) takes on Ben Rothwell (33-9 MMA, 3-3 UFC) and “TUF 10? veteran Matt Mitrione (7-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) meets Derrick Lewis (11-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC), who called Mitrione out after his UFC 175 victory a month ago.

The full UFC Fight Night 50 lineup includes:

MAIN CARD (FOX Sports 1, 9 p.m. ET)

PRELIMINARY CARD (FOX Sports 1, 7 p.m. ET)

PRELIMINARY CARD (UFC Fight Pass, 6:30 p.m. ET)
