The event, which takes place Sept. 22 at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, features an FXX-televised lineup following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
Taking center stage on the organization’s ninth fight card in “The Land of the Rising Sun” is a light heavyweight rematch. Former UFC champion Mauricio Rua (25-10 MMA, 9-8 UFC) attempts to get revenge against Ovince Saint Preux (20-10 MMA, 8-5 UFC), who scored a stunning 34-second knockout win over “Shogun” at UFC Fight Night 56 in November 2014.
